glass replacement candidates: a broken glass door and foggy window glass

Keep your window—replace the glass

When double-pane windows fog up or accidentally break, glass replacement is the best method to repair the glass. The same method works for glass in many entry doors, including patio doors.

Your window or door frame stays in place while we replace damaged glass with new insulated glass. Glass replacement is the right solution when:

  • Water or fog forms between panes of glass in double-pane windows or glass doors
  • Accidental breakage occurs in window glass or glass doors
  • You need special functionality:
    • Privacy glass (also called obscure glass)
    • Laminated or tempered glass
    • Blinds between glass (either windows & doors)
    • Energy-efficient ‘Low-E glass’

Is glass repair the same as glass replacement?

The way to repair insulated glass (as in double pane windows) is full glass replacement. Double-pane windows rely on the sealed space between the panes of glass to provide insulation. If that seal fails, the window’s ability to insulate degrades, and the glass may eventually fog up.

The replacement process can (and often is) called glass repair, but in our experience glass replacement is a clearer description.

Water inside the window glass panes

How can you tell if condensation on your windows is a problem? Actually it’s pretty easy. If you can reach the water to wipe it away, your glass is probably in good shape. On the other hand, if there is water or haze between the window panes where you can’t touch it, that is a sure sign of seal failure. A window with a failed seal cannot insulate well, so it will be harder to heat and cool your home.
