Double Pane Windows
As Hiawassee homeowners know, the temperature outside fluctuates. These changes cause your windows to expand, contract and ultimately warp. When this happens, your home becomes venerable to drafts, which make it more difficult and expensive for you to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. Glass Doctor® of Northeast GA will repair broken windows or replace underperforming panes with higher grade double pane insulated glass units (IGUs).
Window Repair or Replacement
Damaged windows aren't always loud, breezy disrupters to your daily routine. Windows in need of repair are subtler. A broken window seal, for instance, won't always be obvious at first glance. Nonetheless, it still disrupts your indoor climate control and strains your energy bill. Signs your window needs professional care include:
- Milky glass
- Cracks in the glass or frame
- Difficult temperature management
Sustained Insulation for your Windows
Insulated glass units are specially designed to prevent thermal transfers. This reduction in exchanges between your climate controlled air and the outdoor air ensures a consistent temperature in your home and lowers your energy use.
How our IGUs Work
An IGU features at least two pieces of glass. As you can imagine, this multiplies your window's insulation capabilities. Between each pane of glass, we add an insulating spacer that seals the area in between them. Spacers are often filled with a special moisture absorbent, known as a desiccant, or are made using warm-edge glass materials. This feature keeps moisture out and significantly extends the life of your window.
Upon installation, we seal the entire perimeter of the window with a high-grade sealant that further protects against moisture and prevents drafts from occurring.
To enhance the insulation capabilities of your Hiawassee home, many of our IGUs will include argon or krypton gas in between the glass panes. This further improves the insulation capabilities of your windows.
Window Repair and Replacement in Hiawassee
Even the toughest windows will be damaged by the extreme conditions to which Hiawassee is subjected. When this happens, Glass Doctor of Northeast Georgia replaces or repairs the unit.
Our glass experts quickly swap out an irreparably damaged window for a brand new one. It is important that you get this done as soon as you notice the damage, because the drafts caused by damaged windows are costly. Before we offer a full replacement, we will inspect your windows and offer you an inexpensive repair if your window can be saved.
