In addition to our replacement window services, we also offer home window repair, which we will be discussing in this post. Many homeowners like the option of replacing glass only in situations such as a broken window or foggy window. The glass replacement is typically about half of the cost of a full replacement and offers many of the same benefits, including options for low-e glass upgrades.
Foggy windows are caused by the seal between the two panes of glass going out over time. This will typically start as streaking or a hazy look between the double pane glass, and progress to a wet look and eventually white from the mineral deposits in the water and moisture trapped in the glass unit. This will be tagged on a home inspection (seal failure), and we can repair these for you at a fraction of the cost of replacing the windows. We install new glass units with a 10-year manufacturers warranty against seal failure, and can match the glass you have in your existing windows as well as the decorative mutton bars if those are present. We provide free estimates for all services and just need a few minutes to measure the glass, determine type of glass, and get you your quote.
Broken windows are caused by many things including foundation settling, children’s toys, incorrect installation, and birds. Whatever the case may be, we can match your existing windows perfectly and get you a new glass pane installed quickly. Typically in this case our customers opt for replacing the glass only since the existing window frame is still functional and intact.
With all of our glass services and window repair we can upgrade to a low-e glass if the customer chooses. In the case where there are many windows in need of repair, and the homeowner is not selling, this can be a good option. This will reduce the heat transfer, block UV rays, and improve efficiency. If you are looking to upgrade the look and efficiency without spending quite as much as full replacement windows, this can be a great option!
We offer many window repair services to compliment these, such as balancer repairs for windows that will not open and shut, replacing broken locks, screen repairs and screen replacement. Of course for the most updated look and efficiency we also offer full replacement windows. Just give us a call or post a comment with any questions.
