Insulated Glass Replacement
Five top reasons home owners need replacement window glass:
Do you have foggy / moisture filled window glass?
Foggy windows are double pane windows that have lost their ‘seal.’ A double pane window is also known as an Insulated Glass Unit (IG Unit). When an IG Unit’s seal is broken, outside air enters the formally sealed airspace between the glass panes. Once moisture rich air is trapped inside the window, it fogs up and eventually becomes wet. Even if the wetness dries, a hazy residue is left behind that looks foggy. The proper way to repair a window with a broken seal is to replace the faulty insulated glass with a new IG Unit. This repair utilizes the existing window frame and is done clean and quickly.

Did you get your home windows tinted and then a window cracked or fogged?
It is no secret that the application of window film can bring attention to pre-existing defects that may be present in the window glass itself. Every once in a while, a window that has window film applied will crack or fog up because of seal failure. Many window film manufacturers warrant the window glass itself against glass breakage and seal failure. We can help you determine if you have a warranty that may cover the cost of the repair. This often costly glass repair may be covered by the manufacturer’s window film warranty. We can probably handle the paper work and claim too.
