Window Repair and Replacement in the Home
Do you know how old your window glass is? If you didn’t buy your home brand new, there are few ways of knowing the answer to that question. There is a chance it has been years since your window glass has been replaced, or that they have never been replaced at all. There are many reasons you might need to replace the windows of your home, including the fact that they are outdated, are worn and unclear, or they have cracks and chips in them. It may be time to take a look at these issues and let a residential window replacement specialist give you a new window solution.
Friendly Window Repair Technicians
A man’s or woman’s home is their castle. It is your safe place, your haven from the world. Having a contractor enter your private property can bring a lot of anxiety with it. Even if they will only be on the outside, replacing a window, you have to worry about their experience and safety standards. Here at Advanced Auto Glass, no untrained or inexperienced technicians will be replacing and repairing the glass in your home. Our trustworthy technicians are held to a high standard of ethics, and are expected to treat your home, family, and property with the utmost respect.
When to Replace Residential Windows
Residential windows and other glass fixtures in the home are more than just ways to get a great view of the outdoors. They are important to keeping your house and belongings safe. Wind, rain, and other weather can have a wide impact on your home, causing hundreds and even thousands of dollars of damage if not prevented. Windows and skylights should be strong enough to keep all of the weather and elements out, but those that are old with many cracks and dings or old sealant may not protect the home from anything. In this case, it is best to replace the glass for a safer, more energy efficient home.

Insulating Glass units consist of two lites of glass enclosing a hermetically sealed air space. The lites are held apart by a spacer around the entire perimeter. The spacer contains a moisture-absorbent material called a desiccant that serves to keep the enclosed air free of moisture. The entire perimeter of the assembly is sealed with one or more sealants. There are two basic types of coated glass: solar control (Reflective) and low-emissivity (Low-E). The major differences are visible light transmission, UV, visibility, and near infrared wavelengths of energy that are reflected and the directions in which these wavelengths are usually reflected. All Low-E coatings reflect the radiant heat given off by an electric coil-type heater, as well as the heat that comes from a hot air register. Laminated glass is two or more lites of glass and one or more interlayers of Plasticized Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) permanently bonded together under heat and pressure. It provides performance benefits in architectural applications. Its most important characteristic is the ability of the interlayer to support and hold the glass when broken. This provides for increased protection against fallout and penetration of the opening. Tempered glass is generally four times stronger than annealed glass. When broken, fully tempered glass usually breaks into a multitude of small fragments. It is used in side and rear vehicle glass and safety glazing locations such as entrance doors and side lites. Burglar-Resisting Glass typically consists of two lites of glass bonded by a plastic interlayer, which is resistant to penetration. Bullet-Resisting Glass is available in “all glass” configurations or in glass-clad polycarbonate make-ups. The thickness and configuration of the product will determine the ballistic protection.
