There are many reasons why residential windows need to be replaced. Centex Quality Glass can help with most window needs. Most home owners view a window as the entire window system. Typically, a window has multiple parts, including an operable window and a fixed window. We would count that as two windows, since each part can be dealt with separately without ever having to deal with the frame itself.
These are often referred to as Insulated Glass, Energy Efficient Windows or Low-E Windows, Double Hung Windows, Tilt Windows, etc. Typically these are replaced when the “seal” is broken. The seal is the bonding material that is between the two panes of glass. Typically moisture is seen between the pane or a “white residue from where moisture existed and had dried leaving spotting. In cases where the seal have broken, we can replace just that Insulated Glass (IG), operable or fixed window. Both panes would be removed and replace with another double pane window.
Home owners should be aware that sometime a window may appear to have its seal broken, but upon closure inspection the window may be dirty. Centex Quality Glass has worked with homeowners showing them this and saving the owner the cost of replacing a window. Sometimes a sprinkler is nearby and water will mist on the window drying with the spotting that look like the seal broke. A good cleaning will take care of those instances. This is really important to keep in mind if a home owner selling their house. Sometimes a window may get written up on inspection, but that can be addressed by cleaning the window.
Unfortunately, if one of the panes is broken, we would need to replace the entire IG. This typically happens when something like a baseball or golf ball hits the window just breaking the exterior pane. We would measure and replace that IG.
As more energy efficient windows are being installed in new homes, this has created a wide variety of Low-E type of windows. Centex Quality Glass will be able to identify the type of Low-E or be able to match color so that the new IG will match the rest of the house.
Older houses were made with single pane windows, using ssb (single strength) or dsb (double strength) glass. Some of these windows are glazed with putty, while the later years they used vinyl. Centex Quality Glass has the expertise to replace these windows when they crack or break.
