When Is Home Window Replacement Necessary?
Like most building materials, windows are not built to last forever. Outside of obvious signs of failure like leaking, cracks, chips or condensation between windowpanes, there are several other reasons homeowners may wish to consider window replacement.
- The age of the existing windows.
Older windows are less efficient than new windows. Outside of the wear and tear associated with aging windows, new windows are designed with more efficient materials and technologies. Additionally, older window frames or casing may be coated in lead-based paint. This is especially prevalent in homes built prior to 1978.
- A reduction in energy costs.
Aging windows can be the source of significant energy loss. New windows are designed with new technologies, and as a result, are more energy efficient. Insulated glass units and window tinting are two important technologies available in new windows.
- Windows are difficult to open or fall shut.
Your windows will tell you when it’s time to consider replacement. If they’re difficult to open, hard to shut, fall shut easily, or are showing obvious signs of age, it’s time to consider replacement.
- During a large home renovation.
Chances are, if you’re changing the exterior façade of your home, your contractor will ask you about any desired changes to your home’s windows. It’s often easier and les expensive to replace windows or change window size during a larger home renovation.

If you think it may be time to replace your home’s window panes, contact your local Glass Doctor. Our technicians are happy to provide an in-home inspection and estimate to help you make the best choice for your home.
Residential Window Glass Replacement
Depending on the make, model and damage of the window in question, it may be possible to replace just the window glass instead of the entire window. This is particularly valuable to homeowners seeking to maintain historically significant windows, or homeowners who’ve experienced damage to a single window.
If you need single or double pane glass repaired or replaced, you can count on your local Glass Doctor to:
- Arrive at your home to evaluate the window pane.
- Determine if a replacement pane will be required.
- order a custom-fit replacement pane.
- Should you need a replacement pane, your technician will:
- Secure the area.
- Establish a date for replacement pane installation.
- Once the installation or repair is complete, we will clean up the area and provide you with tips on how to maintain your window.
Depending on the make and model of the window in question, it may be possible for our team to replace your window glass the same-day. Contact the Glass Doctor nearest you to schedule an in-home estimate.
