If your double pane window glass is cracked, you may not have to replace the entire window. At Glass Doctor®, we can help you decide between repairing and replacing a cracked double pane glass window.
Do I Need to Replace My Double Pane Window or Aluminum Frame?
If you’re not sure whether to replace your whole double pane window or just a single pane, call a glass expert experienced in insulated window glass replacement.
A double pane window is a type of insulated glass unit. You only need to replace your window if you want a new kind of frame. If you’d like to go from an aluminum frame to something more energy efficient, such as a vinyl frame or fiberglass frame, then you’ll want to replace your window.
There are many types of window frames, and the type you choose when you’re building a home or replacing your windows will depend on your needs. Here are just a couple of reasons why you should replace your windows:
Can I Just Replace the Double Pane Window Glass?
Typically, you don’t have to replace the entire window frame—you can just get the window glass repaired or replaced. Double pane windows are a specialty at Glass Doctor. They are energy efficient, so they will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Double pane glass consists of two panes of glass separated by air. A spacer keeps the glass apart and seals the space between them, which is usually filled with a special material to absorb moisture, called a desiccant.
Why Is There Condensation in my Windows?
Sometimes, the seal between the double pane windows breaks. The desiccant becomes saturated and water begins to condense between the panes of your windows. This is common in older windows, and it’s usually due to one of three things:
Water damage has deteriorated the seal.
Direct sun exposure has made the double pane window expand and contract, weakening the seal.
No window seal lasts forever, and over time, all will eventually need to be replaced.
