Knowing the Difference with Glass
Replacement vs Window Replacement

Repair or replace your windows? This is a common question many homeowners call and ask on a daily basis. They don’t know whether they should replace the glass or replace the entire window. When replacing the entire window, it may be a little more expensive since you’re paying for more than just the glass, but you will also be seeing twice the benefits. Replacing an entire window is usually recommended since more problems will more than likely occur especially if your windows are old.

What is Glass Replacement?

Window glass replacement involves removing the glass from the window sash or frame. Glass replacement you’re choosing a short-term, temporary fix to a long-term, more permanent solution for your home. This is a good fix if you have foggy windows, broken or cracked glass. This is an easy fix if you are wanting to sell your home soon. Your decision should be based on the problem at hand because sometimes, you won’t need to replace the entire window and that glass replacement will do the job just fine. Glass replacement is the best option if you are dealing with a fairly new window that is only experiencing a single issue like being broken or cracked.
