Frequently Asked Questions
- How much will it cost?
It depends on the square footage of the piece of glass needed. Contact us for an estimate
- How long will the job take?
That is dependent on whether it is single glazed or insulated. 90% of the time, single glazed glass can be replaced on site. Insulated glass has to be ordered and usually takes 3-5 business days.
- Do you provide a warranty on the glass I purchase?
You will receive a 5 year warranty on all insulated units.
- Can I get a quote over the phone?
Absolutely. We will need some general information, such as, size, if the glass has color, tempered, etc. based on this information, we can provide a ballpark cost.
- Question: What is a Low- Emissivity (Low-E) coating?
Answer: A very thin layer of metallic oxide or silver that has been applied and then baked onto the glass surface. The coating is approximately 3,000 times thinner than a piece of paper.
- Q: How does Low- E work?
A: Low-E blocks radiant heat transfer, keeping heat from escaping or entering a home.
- Q: Does Low-E reduce solar heat gain?
A: Yes, Low-E reduces solar heat gain by reflecting or redirecting much of the radiant heat the sun sends toward your home.
- Q: What is the cause of condensation on windows and patio doors?
A: The cause is much the same as that of weather pattern forming rain, but on a smaller scale. Warm, moist air in a room comes into contact with cool surfaces, most notable glass, and deposits water on that surface.
- Q: Why are windows and doors the first place you see condensation?
A: Windows and doors usually have the lowest surface temperatures of any surface in the house. They are indicators of excessive moisture, which could mean condensation forming inside of walls leading to other problems.
