We now offer replacement windows, and retro fit windows

At remodel door we help save you money by replacing the insulated glass unit, rather than having to worry about the whole window. Failures and broken seals are costing you money on your monthly energy bills.

How Insulated Glass Works
With double pane windows, the insulating airspace in between the glass panels maintain consistent temperature and reduce heat loss. Most modern windows have two seals: an inner seal to protect against moisture and corrosion and an outer seal to protect the strength of the window. The seals hold a spacer in place-usually a tube containing water-absorbing chemicals.

Why Do Seals Break?
For the most part, insulated glass windows work extremely well. They handle all types of weather, including cold temperatures, heat, and open and close motions. With the double seal, when one seal begins to break, the other can hold the line for a while. Other than old age, there are additional factors that affect seal breakage: Direct exposure to sunlight-the more sun and ambient heat your window gets, the more heat will build up in the insulated glass unit causing the panes and seal to expand, when the temperature cools down the glass unit contracts, and the seal sucks back-in. Over time, your glass unit will fail, and look something look this

Once the seal is broken, moisture begins to form between the panes, giving your windows a milky, foggy look.

Foggy windows are double pane windows that have lost their 'seal.' A double pane window is also known as an Insulated Glass Unit (IG Unit). When an IG Unit's seal is broken, outside air enters the formally sealed airspace between the glass panes. Once moisture rich air is trapped inside the window, it fogs up and even-tually becomes wet. Even if the wetness dries, a hazy residue is left behind that looks foggy. The proper way to repair a window with a broken seal is to replace the faulty insulated glass with a new IG Unit. This repair utilizes the existing window frame and is done clean and quickly.

Just give us a call. we would be happy to provide you with a free evaluation, and estimate to replace your failed units.

 

 

Remodeling magazine reports that the ROI on energy-efficient windows is 73-78%. Your monthly energy costs will go down by up to 40%.

Over the past 10 years, new developments in window design have dramatically reduced this type of heat loss.
