I have 4-year old dual pane Alpine Windows. One of my windows has mildew between the upper (stationary) portion of the window. Problem has been getting worse over the past 2 years to the point where I can hardly see out the window.

Can this be fixed without replacing the entire window? Is this a do-it-yourselfer?

I did notice the vinyl strip on the exterior of the windows that seems to pull away (although not so easily) for access to the window seal. Please HELP!

Try contacting Alpine. It sounds like a seal failure, and they should be able to help you.

what is on your house for siding? Are the windows properly flashed and caulked?
