If you need to repair glass in a window or door, window glass replacement is significantly less costly than replacement of a whole new unit. Window replacement often requires stucco repair and repainting of the area around the window and it is very difficult to match the paint.
Why Window and Glass Pros?
We will send a Glass Pro to your location to measure the glass and give you an estimate for glass replacement. Should you agree with the replacement glass estimate we will make a new Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) and then a technician will return and install the new IGU in your current window frame.
Always ask your glass company about the length of your glass repair warranty. Many glass companies only offer a short warranty on the material and nothing on labor. We provide a full 15-year warranty on material and labor.
Glass Replacement VS. Window Replacement
Here are some reasons why you might consider replacing the non-low-e glass in your windows with low-e glass rather than buying new windows:
- Cost-effective: Replacing just the glass in your windows is often less expensive than purchasing new windows. This is especially true for homes with stucco walls vs. brick or block walls. Window replacement requires repair and painting of the stucco around the window; glass replacement does not disturb the stucco or drywall.
- Preservation of existing frames: If your current windows are in good condition, replacing the glass allows you to preserve the existing frames and save on the cost of buying new ones.
- Improved energy efficiency: Low-e glass can greatly improve the energy efficiency of your existing windows, reducing your heating and cooling costs.
- Improved comfort: The reduced heat transfer from low-e glass can make your home more comfortable, particularly in our hot climate.
- Increased home value: Energy-efficient windows are an attractive feature for homebuyers, which can increase the value of your home.
- Reduced glare: The low-e coating can help to reduce glare from the sun, making your home more comfortable to be in.
- Enhanced privacy: Low-e glass can also help to provide privacy by making it more difficult for outsiders to see inside your home.
- Increased durability: Low-e glass is typically more durable than clear glass, which can help to extend the life of your windows.
