Condensation in double glazing - what are the solutions?

Just moved in to a house which has a number of windows with condensation between the glass panels. Can they be cleaned or do they require replacing? Thanks.

how much does it cost to doubleglaze a 3 bedroom house with 12 standard upvc windows?

I'm looking to double glaze an entire modern build 3 bedroom house. 12 windows total and 2 doors. Only standard upvc (frosted for the bathroom window).
I've had so many varied quotes, I'm not sure who to believe. Ranging from 3000- 10000. Could you clarify for me an estimate of what it should cost. (I know for a more specific cost, I'd need a buider to view the property).

Which are the BEST quality UPVC windows to install?

Is one brand of UPVC window better than another?

Is it possible to adjust the height of the hinges on upvc doors

Hi, we've not long had some lino fitted in the kitchen over the top of the tiles, but it now means that the back door sticks as the floor is too high and its started to tear the lino.
was just wondering if there is a way of moving the door up about 5 mm to stop it from rubbing. Theres about a 10mm gap between the top of the door and the frame, so is it possible to adjust the hinges and if so how is this done??
any help would be appreciated. cheers.
