    Hi

    Just closed one of our lean to windows and noticed that there is a few cm of water within. Guess the seal must have gone and water leaked in or condensation build up? (Not just build up on window surface)

    Think windows may still be within ten year guarantee, but if not, is there a fix for this?

    Thanks

    Replace the unit.
    It isn't that expensive

    Thanks, do you mean replace the fanlight window, when you mean “unit”? Also would hope covered by builders guarantee, as within ten years?

    Just the double glazed unit.

    Take out the beads, remove glass and fit new, making sure glazing shims in place.
    It worth checking sash drainage holes arent blocked.

    DG units have a limited life, they start to fail from 10 to 15 years, although much depends on how well made and how well fitted.
