Ive talked to a couple different franchise owners over the past year. The verdict want to good. The work is very hard to obtain, labor intensive with spotty results that were seldom perfect. I could see it being viable maybe on highrise stuff where replacement simply isnt an option.
Most of the higher end systems have you flush out the inside with a special solution prior to installing the vents. This process is also supposed to get rid of first stage corrosion on the inside. I’m not too sure this cheap system will address these issues.
For the money it seems it’s pretty much risk free testing on one of your own windows. The site doesn’t seem to be very professional at all. Not enough info and no guarantee from what I can see.
They state on their site that you just need to look up ‘foggy window repair’ on Youtube to see it in action. I did the search in Youtube but got every other company advertisement, not theirs.
There are several companies offering this out there, I’m looking to be able to provide this service to my clients and I need the gear, setup and training. This link takes me to a company that is already doing this service. I guess I could look into a franchise but then that would be like me looking into FISH to do window cleaning. I’m not interested in someones franchise, I simply want to add the service to my existing business. Thanks anyway!
it says this…
Whether you are looking for an additional value added service for your existing window business, or you’re looking for a proven, profitable new business opportunity, make the clear choice – become an authorized Dr. Defog-It Dealer!
subsidiary of the Broco Glass Group
maybe look up the Broco and also find where you can get the original equipment? Just checked they are Canadian, so they must be good
Most of the systems for this service are proprietary and belong to franchises. I looked and couldn’t find any systems that weren’t affiliated w/ some company wanting to sell you a service area for several thousand dollars (not including the system itself). It would take a lot of work to offset that initial cost.
I worked for a well known glass shop in my city we nor anyone else bother to offer this service. it’s easier to just replace the unit.
which since you need access to the seal/spacer by removing it from the frame anyway, might as well put a new one in.
besides, that link is dead now.
