Insulated Glass Unit Replacement and Installation
Pinellas County homeowners rely on our technicians for new installations (at new construction homes or home renovations) and replacements (replacing an existing single or double pane window).
Window repair is less common than window or windowpane replacement. The extent of the damage to your widow will dictate whether repair is possible. Our service experts will help determine which option is best for your home.
Should I Replace My IGU?
Replacement is often necessary for your insulated glass unit (IGU) if you notice these signs of disrepair:
- Condensation or fog trapped between the panes.
- Panes that are broken or cracked.
- The mechanics are faulty, or the frame is broken.
- The window is more than 20 years old.
Our technicians can quickly assess and replace your double pane window to ensure your home is safe and cool again.
Pinellas County, FL Double Pane Window Repair
Double pane windows are insulated with an air pocket surrounded by two glass panes. Some windows are composed of multiple layers of insulated panes. A cracked pane or failed seal can cause air leaks, compromising their overall structure and efficiency. For this reason, repairs are more limited to replacing single panes or faulty mechanics such as cranks, locks, handles, frames, etc.
Knowing the difference between repair or replacement can be difficult. For an accurate assessment, schedule an estimate with a member of our team.
Why Insulated Glass Units?
As you might imagine, double pane windows have two panes of glass, unlike single pane windows. And with an air pocket between them, IGUs actually offer three layers of insulation. With these layers, your home is better able to retain the cooled or heated air inside and guard against outdoor air seeping in. This results in improved home energy efficiency and a lower energy bill.
With their additional layers, IGUs also make your home quieter (blocking out more outside noise) and reduce UV damage to your furnishings. This can be especially helpful in the intense Florida sun.
