Double Pane Windows

Extreme weather conditions will take a toll on your home, possibly even causing a need for double pane window repair. Glass expands and contracts as it heats and cools, and this can lead to broken seals in double pane windows. If your double pane glass has a cloudy appearance or moisture between the panes, it is usually a sign that you have a seal problem. Any damage to your window or seals increases your home's heating and cooling bill. Glass Doctor® of Fredericksburg performs a variety of double pane window repairs, including replacing damaged panes, broken seals and more.

Insulated Glass Benefits

Double Pane Window Repair

Damaged double pane windows, a type of insulated glass unit (IGU), will affect your utility costs, but they can also affect your family’s health. By allowing allergens and drafts to penetrate the home family members are exposed to discomfort. Specialists from Glass Doctor of Fredericksburg will examine the damaged window for you, and in many cases will be able to perform repairs on your existing windows. Our goal is to provide you with the best solutions available, at the most affordable price. Since repair is less expensive than window replacement, we will always attempt to repair your IGUs before we advise you to replace them.

During the repair process, we will check the integrity of the window. This includes examining the glass for cracks, verifying the spacers are working properly, and ensuring that the seals have not degraded, cracked or split. Your double pane window repair will include replacing any damaged panes and sealing the entire unit with a professional grade sealant that prevents outside air from mingling with the interior climate. For additional climate control, some IGUs are filled with a low conductivity gas such as argon or krypton.

Double Pane Window Replacement

There are situations which rules out repair service. If a window's frame is damaged, a Glass Doctor of Fredericksburg specialist will remove the entire window and replace it with a new one. Replacing the frame itself is always a last resort, but one service we will perform if there is no other option available.

Double pane window repair is only one of many services available from Glass Doctor of Fredericksburg. We also service single-paned windows, auto glass, commercial glass and interior glass, such as mirrors or tabletops. If you need glass services, contact Glass Doctor of Fredericksburg, we have a solution for every pane.
