Kelowna Glass Replacement
Most good things come with a trade off. Glass is one of them. It is modern, elegant, and simply beautiful. It has its downside as well. It breaks and gets damaged when accidents happen, with environmental factors, and misuse.
Take your home’s windows as an example. They are most susceptible to damage, being exposed to the outside world. Environmental conditions, age, and man-made accidents play a role in the damage to the glass window. Great variances in the exterior and interior temperatures, especially in cold winter months, may cause stress cracks on the glass. Swift changes in the weather can trigger a pressure crack. Older double or triple pane windows often cause the seal to break, inciting fogginess, streaking, and condensation. Accidents and even abuse can result in breakage or impact cracking on the window glass.
Top Reasons Why Homeowners Opt for Glass Replacement
The replacement of glass fixtures at home such as glass windows is among the best home improvement and upgrade projects that stretch investment dollars farther. Homeowners cite the following reasons for opting for glass replacement:
Increased home value
Glass replacement projects can have a big payoff and can return homeowners a significant percentage of their project cost upon resale of the home.
Enhanced home security and safety
The replacement of damaged, defective, and old glass structures like windows and doors by newer and improved functionality units can benefit the safety of the family.
Improved home comfort
Energy-efficient, well-sealed windows and doors prevent air leaks, reduce the amount of ultraviolet rays that enter, and can help keep climate-controlled air indoors.
Improved energy efficiency
There are highly energy-efficient certified windows and doors that can save money and help lower utility costs while protecting the environment.
Signs that Your Glass Needs Replacement
Visible damage. If the glass is ugly or outdated, repairs will not effectively solve the problem. Also, defects such as large cracks and broken glass are beyond repair.
Old and outdated. If the glass is hazy and has lost its clarity and lustrous surface, it is time to replace it. Double and triple pane window glass is expected to last 10 to 20 years.
Safety hazard. Cracked glass is prone to breaking and collapsing, posing a safety hazard to people.
High energy bills. Homes with single pane or non-energy-efficient windows and doors lack proper insulation, which can cause your air conditioning or heating systems to work harder to regulate internal temperatures in your home resulting in very high energy bills.
Eyesore. The long-term aesthetics and curb appeal of your home are lost with old, defective, and low-quality glass.
Glass Replacement vs. Window Replacement
If there is an issue with glass windows, the most common questions asked by homeowners are when is replacing just the glass fine and when is replacing the entire window necessary.
The answer to this tricky question is it depends on the situation.
- With a pane broken, opt for glass replacement.
- If you notice the window glass starting to fog up and produce condensation, you can probably solve that issue with a glass replacement after fixing the broken seals instead of a window replacement.
- If the windows are old and letting in a noticeable draft, you can replace the glass but it is a better plan to consider upgrading your window by replacing them in their entirety.
There are benefits to replacing just the glass versus replacing the whole window unit depending on the situation. If you can get away with it, you can experience the following benefits:
- You’ll save more on your home project. Replacing the glass is obviously more cost-effective than replacing the whole window.
- If you are using an insulated glass unit (IGU), you’ll have a dramatic reduction in heat loss, notice regulation in your home’s internal temperatures, and as a result, significant monthly energy savings.
- You’ll see a faster installation time with an IGU replacement by a professional. These jobs are usually completed in less than a day.
Replacing the entire window will be more expensive as you will be paying for more than just the glass but you can expect twice the benefits that come with it.
- Energy savings become more noticeable.
- The home resale value increases with new windows.
- Outside noise is lessened dramatically.
- Your home’s internal temperatures during the colder and hotter months are improved even more.
