Double Pane Windows
Glass Doctor® of Tuscaloosa offers double pane window repair and replacement services to help residents balance and regulate the climate in their homes. Double pane windows are a type of insulated glass unit (IGU) that, when functioning properly, will help reduce energy costs, eliminate drafts and make your home more comfortable throughout the changing seasons. In the summer months, double pane windows significantly reduce heat gain from outside. In the winter, these types of windows keep the heat in while protecting your home from the chilly Tuscaloosa temperatures. Count on the Glass Doctor of Tuscaloosa team to deliver unsurpassed workmanship during your window repair!
Double Pane Window Repair
The windows in your home are the number one source for energy loss. Extreme temperature changes and exposure to environmental elements can play havoc on the functionality of your double pane windows. Over time, this often results in damaged panes and broken seals. While damaged panes are typically easier for homeowners to spot, broken window seals are less conspicuous. Warning signs of damaged seals include:
- Condensation build-up under the glass
- A milky appearance to panes
If your home suffers from damaged window glass or seals, call the specialists at Glass Doctor of Tuscaloosa right away. Failing to have your double pane windows repaired will not only make your home less energy efficient, it can result in more extensive damages that may even result in complete window replacement.

In addition to complete window replacements, our experienced glass specialists can install new glass in your existing frames, saving you the cost of installing a totally new unit.
The IGU Difference
The build of an IGU is what makes the window style so energy efficient. An IGU consists of two or three panes of glass separated and held in place with an insulated spacer. The spacer also seals the air between the panes. Spacers are made from non-conductive material or filled with desiccant, special moisture absorbing material. A high-grade sealant is applied to the perimeter of the IGU to help prevent moisture and condensation from accumulating between the glass panes. Argon or krypton gas is sometimes added to the airspace for additional insulation.
