Double Pane Windows
From rain, sleet and snow to frequent temperature changes, it is no surprise when a window in your home occasionally gets broken or damaged. In fact, this damage can manifest itself in many ways - the obvious like cracks and chips, but also in more subtle ways such as drafty rooms, poor overall insulation, milky appearance and even an increase in the noise level in your home. Allow Glass Doctor® of Granbury to install, repair or replace double pane windows in your household to fix these issues.
The Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Glass Doctor of Granbury properly installs double pane windows, which offer several advantages over traditional single pane windows. Constructed of two sheets of glass that surround a space, it can be filled with either regular air or with one of the noble gases like argon or krypton. These windows make it far easier for your air-conditioning unit to control the interior climate of your home. This design, along with the use of low-emissivity (Low-E) glass, high-tech sealants and adhesives, means that not only heat, but also noise from the outside are kept to a minimum. The result is a more comfortable living space for you, your family and your guests.
Double Pane Window Repair
Repairing double pane windows is not a particularly difficult task if you have the right tools and expertise. Fortunately, the Glass Doctor of Granbury has both of these in spades. In fact, with years of experience, our in-house staff and glass repair and replacement specialists have seen it all. The repair process itself is a fairly straightforward. The damaged glass is removed and the new panes are cut to size. The perimeter space is thoroughly cleaned and an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) certified adhesive is then applied. With both panes in place, a replacement gas is blown into the interior space and a high-grade sealant is applied. In the end, the resulting repaired window is as good as the one installed just after it left the factory floor. Consider a repair when a single pane is obviously cracked or exhibits a milky look - the latter means that the seal has been broken.
