6 Signs You Need To Replace Your Window Glass

Replacing old window glass may help enhance your home's aesthetic appeal, value, and energy efficiency. Here are some signs that it's time to replace your window glass:

1. Fogging

Fogging occurs when moisture condenses on the surface of window glass. It occurs due to window seal failure that allows moisture and condensation buildup between the panes. Fogged windows obstruct views of your property's surroundings and reduce your home's energy efficiency. At Allied Glass & Mirror, we'll repair your foggy windows by replacing their glass with properly sealed double panes.

2. Scratches

Scratches on window glass are unsightly and detract from your property's curb appeal. They diminish the glass's clarity and weaken its structural integrity. Scratches may result from exposure to debris or contact with abrasive materials.

The severity of the scratch determines the level of repair required. A professional may recommend polishing out the scratches if they're minor. A replacement may be necessary if the scratches are extensive or deep.

At Allied Glass &Mirror, we carry a wide range of glass, including patterned and colored glass. We'll find an option that matches the rest of your home's windows during window replacement.

3. Cracks

Cracked window glasses are weak and more susceptible to shattering or breaking. This puts you and your family at risk, especially if you have kids or pets who may play roughly around the windows. Cracks can occur due to extreme temperature changes, high impacts, improper installation, or natural wear and tear.

At Allied Glass & Mirror, we've been in the glass industry for over 75 years, so you can rely on our expertise in dealing with cracked glass. We'll promptly address cracks in your window glass to enhance your window's longevity and functionality.

4. Drafts

Drafts are an indication that your windows are not sealing correctly. They occur when window frames warp over time, causing gaps between the frame and glass. These gaps allow air to enter and escape your home, lowering your home's energy efficiency.

At Allied Glass & Mirror, we'll assess your window to determine if the frame is damaged. If so, we'll replace your frame and glass for a more comfortable and efficient home.

5. High Energy Bills

Windows glass helps regulate a home's temperature by keeping the warm air inside during cold months and blocking the heat from entering during hot months. When damaged, window glass offers less insulation, making your home less energy-efficient. This may lead to heating and cooling system overuse, which can increase your overall energy consumption. At Allied Glass & Mirror, we'll replace your old windows with energy-efficient options like double- or triple-pane windows. This can help reduce your energy bills and improve your home's comfort and value.

6. Audible Outside Noise

Audible outside noise may indicate that your window glass is no longer able to sufficiently block external sounds. The glass may be worn, cracked, or outdated. This allows the sound waves to penetrate your home more easily. At Allied Glass &Mirror, we offer double-glazed or laminated windows to provide a serene indoor environment.
