How to Fix Broken Double-Pane Window Glass
You need to fix your broken double pane glass windows even if they don't appear to be badly damaged. Double pane windows are designed to offer better insulation from cold and heat, thereby increasing energy efficiency. If they are damaged or the seals fail, they lose their effectiveness, costing you money in energy costs. Let the pros at Glass Doctor® make it easy for you with same-day repair service.
Can I Fix My Broken Double-Pane Window?
There are several DIY ways to fix a broken double-pane glass window. You need to remove the window sash, take it to a glass service store, order replacement glass for whichever panes are damaged and then replace the broken pane with new glass. This can mean that your home is left exposed to the elements for days at at time. DIY is not the ideal fix for broken double-pane window glass.
To get speedy repair, ensure that seals are installed properly and avoid potential problems down the road, it's best to leave the window repair to the experts. Professionals are often able to fix a single pane of glass that is broken or damaged without replacing the entire window, saving you money and time.
Hidden Problems Need to Be Fixed
If there is no visible damage to your double-pane window, but the glass is foggy or there is moisture between the panes, you have a hidden problem.
The constant expansion and contraction of window glass as it heats up and cools down often causes the seals around the glass panes to fail. Failed seals allow air and moisture to enter, causing your windows to fog and decreasing the energy efficiency of your insulated glass units.
There are good reasons to have your double-pane windows fixed if they are foggy, including:
- Energy efficiency
- Increased home value
