When to Consider Replacing Window Glass

If your windows are clearly damaged, showing obvious signs of decay or if the glazing unit is has misted up on the inside, then it’s probably time for a replacement. Stand next to your windows and notice whether they feel cold. If they do, it’s time to eliminate those draughts and prevent the heat from escaping with new, high standard glazing.

The Benefits of New Glazing

There are countless benefits when replacing window glass. Two of the key advantages are increased comfort in your home and reduced maintenance. Meaning you can once again enjoy a safe, warm home without worrying about the decaying visual appearance of your old window. Another benefit is the value that new glazing will add to your home. Research has illustrated that the value of a home can increase by 10% with new double glazed windows. This is simply because new buyers will be more attracted to a property with new windows. Energy efficiency is another important benefit of new energy rated windows as they reduce the warmth which is released into the atmosphere – this will contribute to the mitigation of global climate change.

The Types Of Glass Available

Replacing window glass is incredibly important. The glass fitted within your windows or doors can make or break the thermal performance, security levels and energy efficiency of your home. Aside from deciding how many panes of glass that you need (double glazing windows or triple glazed windows) it is also important to establish which type of glass will work best for you and your home. There are many different types of glass for windows, let’s look at the four main types of glass.

Laminated Safety Glass

When considering replacing window glass, this is the most secure glass for windows you can choose. This is created by fusing two panes around polyvinyl using a high level of heat and pressure fusion to create an extremely strong layer of glass. This type of glass is used in environments where the glass is most likely to shatter.

Low-E Glass

This style of glass is the best choice for maximum thermal efficiency. If thermal vales are a consideration within your home, Low-E glass could meet your requirements. This is a coating which is applied to the glass to reflect thermal radiation. Not only does this type of glass keep the cold air out, but will save you heaps of money on energy bills.

Glass Styles

There are also many different glass styles available to suit your home style. We offer everything from frosted glass with beautiful patterns to triple glazed clear glass. Frosted glass and obscure glass are known for their translucent, patterned styles; however, they are still able to transmit light. Whatever your personal home style, we have the glass style and pattern for you.

Tempered Safety Glass

When replacing window glass, the most recommend glass style is ‘Tempered’ or ‘Safety’. This is far more durable, heat retaining and stronger against any excess force. This will keep your property warm, safe and secure. This style of glass is extremely strong and it is resistant to breakage. The chemical treatments added will increase the strength compared with normal glass. This is the style of glass for windows which is often used for passenger style seats, aquarium and even mobile phone screen protectors! If this type of glass breaks, it will shatter into chunks instead of sharp pieces of glass which could lead to someone hurting themselves.

Insulated Glass

Insulated glass is often referred to as double glazed windows or triple glazed windows. With three panels of glass, they are separated by an argon- gas filled vacuum chamber that makes the glass much thicker and acts as a barrier to prevent warm air from escaping the house. Even in the summer, the warm air will of course remain outside, keeping your property cool. Double glazed windows will allow you to save money on your energy bills whilst reducing your carbon footprint. Energy efficiency is a prime concern for both homeowners and tradesmen, making insulated glass an incredibly popular choice.

A Comparison Of A and A++ Rated Windows

‘A’ originally had the highest thermal value. Continuous developments in the manufacturing industry have resulted in windows becoming more and more thermally efficient. ‘A+’ and ‘A++’ are simple referring the thermal values of the window. The more expensive that your windows are, the more you will be likely to save on your heating bills in the long term.

THE ADVANTAGES OF WINDOWS BY FUTURE RENOVATIONS

Fixed pane windows are the most energy efficient of all windows as they provide a snug seal against the outside world. Combine this style with double or triple glazing, and you will save significant amount of money on energy bills. Casement windows are the second most energy efficient. This is because they open outwards and their sashes close against their frames, creating an airtight seal. This helps prevent air entry and leakage and is more energy efficient that double-hung windows made from the same glass and sash materials.
