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. This damage can manifest itself in many ways - the obvious like cracks and chips, but also in more subtle ways like milky appearance and even larger issues such as drafty rooms, poor overall insulation, and increased noise levels in the home. Allow Glass Doctor® of Longwood, FL to install or replace double pane windows in your household to fix these issues.
The Benefits of Double Pane Windows
Glass Doctor of Longwood, FL properly installs double pane windows, which offer several advantages over traditional single-pane windows. Double-pane windows are constructed of two glass sheets surrounding open space filled with either regular air or 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 Replacement
Repairing double pane windows is a task where you need the right tools and expertise. Fortunately, Glass Doctor of Longwood, FL has both in order to do the job right! In fact, with years of experience, our service professionals have seen it all. The damaged glass is removed, and the new panes are cut to size. The perimeter space is thoroughly cleaned, and an Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) 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 replacement when a single pane is cracked or exhibits a milky look - the latter means that the seal has been broken.

Double pane windows are affordable and will often pay for themselves within a few short years through lowered utility bills. In short, they are a great investment for both quality of life and in the resale value of your home.
