Home improvement often gives owners far more angst than joy – 99% of the time it’s not what we want to spend our money on. Knowing you’re making the best choice for your home and your wallet can make a world of difference in deciding what you want to do.
If you’re faced with broken glass, from cracked glass in anything to foggy insulated window panes, yet the window frame itself is still in good working condition – repair them instead of replacing them. You may pay more than three times as much to replace the entire window or door, so we always look to repair the window first.

When you’re comparing professional glass companies, you’ll find that many things are the same. What’s not the same is the “will and want to” in the people you let into your home to repair or install your glass. Saving $50 on an offer from an average or less than average glazer will almost always cost you more in the end.
Save yourself the headache, the angst, and the stress of redoing the work years before you should. Our glazers have over 10 years of experience and will take the time to ensure you only pay for what you have to, and that your quality is better than you’ll get anywhere else.

Drafty windows let warm air into your home in the summer, while letting the cold suck out that warm air in the winter; adding about 10% to 25% to your energy bills, according to Energy.gov. The repair for a drafty window is likely going to be much cheaper than it would be to go a year or two without a good seal.
If you notice your glass becomes foggy it’s time to replace the glass because of a failed seal that allows moisture to get in between the panes. Once that seal is gone, so is your insulation, meaning your energy efficiency is gone and you’ll lose a lot of temperature control inside your home.
New homes typically have dual pane windows or insulated glass. As a rule of thumb; homes built before 1978 had single pane windows, while homes built after 1978 had dual pane windows. To figure out which of the two you have, carefully look at the broken window (look, but don’t touch) and you’ll see either one layer of glass or two. If the window has a foggy look to it, as we mentioned above, that’s foggy on the inside but you can’t clean the window whether you’re inside or outside of your house, you have a dual pane. Dual pane glass windows work by trapping air between the two layers to create an insulating factor and help reduce heat transfer through the glass. This also creates energy efficiency as well as a sound barrier helping to reduce noise volumes from outside your home.
