How to Fix Broken Double Pane Window Glass

You need to fix your broken double pane glass windows even if they don't appear to be badly damaged. Double pane windows are designed to offer better insulation from cold and heat, thereby increasing energy efficiency. If they are damaged or the seals fail, they lose their effectiveness, costing you money in energy costs.

Can I Fix My Broken Double Pane Window?

There are several DIY ways to fix a broken double pane glass window. You need to remove the window sash, take it to a glass service store, order replacement glass for whichever panes are damaged and then replace the broken pane with a new glass pane.

Whenever you work with broken glass, be sure to wear protective gloves and thick clothing. If you want to avoid potential problems down the road, it's best to leave the repair to a professional glass repair shop. It is often possible to replace just the single pane of glass that is broken without replacing the entire window, saving you money and time. 

Hidden Problem Needs to Be Fixed

Home Curb Appeal

If there is no visible damage to your double pane window, but the glass is foggy or there is moisture between the panes, you have a hidden problem.

The constant expansion and contraction of window glass as it heats up and cools down often causes the seals around the glass panes to fail. Failed seals allow air and moisture to enter, causing your windows to fog and decreasing the energy efficiency of your insulated glass units.

There are good reasons to have your double pane windows fixed if they are foggy, including:

  • Aesthetics
  • Energy efficiency
  • Increased home value
