Repair a broken window

Work on the replacement of damaged insulating glass units usually begins with measurements. First, a specialist calculates the so-called "insulating glass unit formula." It includes the dimensions of both the visible and hidden glazing bead, the width of the glazing unit, and the thickness of the panes and chambers. The double-glazed window will perfectly fit in a frame if measurements are made qualitatively. Especially it concerns non-standard windows: for example, in houses with high ceilings, windows of the complicated form (a trapeze, a circle, a triangle, an arch). However, if the measurements are poorly taken, the glazing unit will eventually break the symmetry of the frame, which will distort the entire construction. As a result, there will be constant draughts, and the service life of the plastic window will be considerably shortened.

The next step is to replace the broken insulating glass unit. Here an important point is the extraction of splinters from the structure's interior. Removing the damaged insulating glass unit is done very carefully to not damage the glass pane, on the one hand, not to hurt oneself by the splinters; on the other hand, and not to allow the glass to crumble indoors.

The sash adjustment is performed for opening windows simultaneously with installing an insulating glass unit since a correctly installed glass unit is responsible for its exact geometry and absence of warping. After installing the insulating glass unit, masters adjust the clamping sash with fittings and make a preventive test of the plastic window.

When replacing a broken insulating glass unit, you can choose a different configuration, for example, with additional noise insulation or, if the window faces the sunny side, tinted or mirrored glass. In addition, you can learn more about the types of insulating glass units from our experts.

If the reason for replacing the insulating glass unit is mechanical damage to the glass, it makes sense to think about high-strength glass. This type of glass is essential for store windows and families with children. This type of glass is much more resistant to mechanical damage than conventional window glass. In addition, its shards do not crumble upon impact. This is an excellent option for preventing injury. Another option is armored glass. It is usually installed in banks and other organizations that store money and valuables, but you can put armored glass windows at home.

Replacing broken glass can vary in price. The cost depends on many factors, including the size and shape of the opening, the number of chambers of the glazing, its thickness and composition, and the urgency of the work. You can find the exact information in our price list and clarify with specialists in person by phone.

 Glass in a plastic window is the most fragile element, and it happens. It can break. The reasons for this and the circumstances - a lot, and the solution to replace it - one and, as it turns out, not so complicated.

How to replace the glass in a plastic window if it has broken or for other reasons must be replaced?

Broken glass pane - what to do?

Possible damages to the glass in a plastic window:

  • Crack,
  • Chip,
  • Through-hole.

Crack or chip in the insulating glass unit

  • If the insulating glass unit is slightly damaged and the structural integrity is not impaired - try not to use the window sash with a damaged filling. This will prevent further damage to the insulating glass unit. However, to usually use the window, the broken glass must be replaced.

    Through-hole - a hole in the insulating glass unit

    In some cases, the insulating glass may be damaged. In this case, the first thing to do is to fix a piece of cardboard or other material on the window to prevent air from getting in from the street, which is especially important during the cold season, and begin the process of replacing the broken insulating glass unit as quickly as possible.

    GLASS PANE REPLACEMENT BY A SPECIALIST 

    Replacement of double-glazed windows up to 1.0 square meters is $150.

    Four signs that the insulating glass unit must be replaced

    Cracked glass

    Cracked or broken glass is a common problem. This is especially true for lower floors and private homes. Our masters will be able to replace the insulating glass unit in the shortest possible time. It is imperative in cold seasons. 

    1. Condensation appears

    Condensation can form on the pane from the street side, room side, or inside the insulating glass unit. The latter case is the most complicated. Moisture collection in the chamber indicates the depressurization of the window. Therefore, it is better to replace the insulating glass unit in such a situation. 

    1. Noise and heat insulation properties have deteriorated

    When the glass pane does not provide enough protection from outside noise and allows cold air into the house, it must be replaced. You can choose the double-glazed window with energy-saving or ordinary glass, but with an increased number of chambers. 

    1. You want to change the design.

    You can easily replace ordinary glass with colored or tinted glass. You can choose colored glass or coat it with polymer film in a particular shade. Install the package with the new formula.

    Before installing the new insulating glass unit, it is necessary to dismantle the old one.

    Types of double-glazed windows for replacement

    Any glazing unit presented in the catalog can be made according to the size and shape of a sash: arched, oval, round, etc. In addition, a customer chooses all other characteristics of glass - type and thickness of glass, number of chambers, and type of surface (mirror or tinted).

    Two-chamber windows

    They are more heat-efficient than single-chamber models. They have three panes and two chambers filled with air or gas layers.

    Tinted

    Allows to protect elements of an interior and furniture from burning under the influence of sunlight, to prevent glare on displays of PC monitors and TV sets in the daytime—an excellent solution for office environments. Tinting levels may vary from 5-50%.

    Heat saving.

    A special coating is applied to the glass in such packages, reflecting the energy to their source. In addition, ultraviolet radiation has reflected the street and heat from batteries to the room. This increases the energy efficiency of the windows, allowing you to save on air conditioning in hot weather and heating in the cold.

    Reflective

    Reflect light from the sun and UV rays, reducing room heating. Allow you to hide your personal life from prying eyes.

    With triplex glass.

    Such glass units provide excellent noise insulation. A high-strength film is placed inside the laminated glass in such a system. The glass has anti-shock properties - if you damage the glass, the splinters will stay on the film but not crumble.


Main services

Manufacture of insulating glass units of any configuration:

  • Replacement of insulating glass units on PVC, aluminum, and wood profiles.
  • Dismantling of existing and installation of new insulating glass units.
  • Repair of broken and cracked insulating glass units.
  • Replacement of single-glazed windows with energy-efficient or double-glazed windows.
  • Replace standard glass units for functional (tinted, reflective, noise-absorbing, etc.).

Speed of work

We can order from us:

Normal replacement. The master will come at a suitable time for you. For example, we will replace a standard double-glazed window with transparent windows in 5-6 days after taking measurements. During this time, the glass is produced with the necessary characteristics, delivery, and installation at the site.

 Urgent replacement. Our employee will come for gauging a maximum of 2 hours after receiving the request. He will take measurements, discuss the cost and details with you and send the data to the manufacturer. The new double-glazed window will be installed on the day of manufacture. The cost of the service is higher than the standard replacement.

 What to choose: repair or replacement of double-glazed window

By repairing the insulating glass unit, we mean replacing only the broken glass. This is a complicated procedure, so its cost is high:

 The glass unit is dismantled and sent to the production shop;

  The glass is produced in the correct thickness;

  the broken glass is removed;

 new glass is installed, and the chamber is sealed with argon;

 The repaired package is delivered to the site for installation.

 After repair, the glass unit may lose its thermal performance, and ice may form on it. In addition, it takes a long time to repair. For this reason, replacing an individual pane is recommended only if the entire pane's cost exceeds the repair cost. In other cases, it is more economical to reinstall the whole package completely.

 Replacing insulating glass in different profiles

On PVC windows and balcony doors

Glass measurements are taken in millimeters. The customer decides on the type and chambering of the structure, then the production begins. To manufacture, deliver, remove the old and install the new product, you need 1-7 days. The term is affected by the configuration of the construction.

The insulating glass unit is replaced in stages:

plastic glazing beads are removed;

 Remove the damaged insulating glass unit;

 clean the frame, install and align the insulating glass unit using spacers;

 Return glazing beads in their place, and check the functionality of the window system.

 The last step is to sign a contract on the acceptance of work and provide a warranty card.

 On aluminum windows and other structures

Measurements are made in the same way as in plastic profiles. The difference lies in the replacement procedure. First, remove the rubber seal, the glazing beads, and the unit itself. Then finally, the installation of the new structure is carried out in reverse order.

In conservatories and the case of facade glazing with aluminum profiles, glazing bars are not used. Because of this, the glazing windows are repaired from the street side, for which industrial climbers or special equipment are used.
