Glass Replacement

We replace all types of glass for buildings and houses quickly, safely and correctly.  We stock a wide variety of glass types and sizes for your convenience.  We manufacture sealed insulated glass units in-house for quality control and quick turn around. 

A quick primer on types of glass:

Insulated glass - This is a “sandwich” of 2 or more pieces of glass with a dead air space in between.  This design allows for a more energy efficient window, reducing heat loss through the window.  The individual pieces of glass can be varied to achieve a desired result.

Annealed glass is the basic flat glass product. It is the most common glass that tends to break into large, jagged shards. It is commonly used in windows that do not require safety glazing, including double-glazed windows.

Laminated safety glass is made of two or more layers of glass with one or more "interlayers" of polymeric (PVB) material bonded between the glass layers.  The windshield of a car is laminated safety glass.  Laminated glass offers increased safety and security since rather than shattering on impact, laminated glass is held together by the plastic interlayer, reducing the safety hazard associated with shattered glass fragments.  In addition, laminated safety glass provides increased security by making penetration through the plastic film between the glass much more difficult. Laminated safety glass can be used in many applications where safety glass is required by law.  Since the laminated safety glass can be cut to size, it is often used when safety glass is required, and the glass is needed right away.

Tempered safety glass  is used in applications in which annealed glass could pose a potential danger . Tempered glass is about four times stronger than annealed glass and does not break into large shards when it fails, but instead breaks into small pebble like pieces (the side windows of a car are tempered). Tempered glass is manufactured through a process of extreme heating in a special oven and rapid cooling, giving the glass the above described properties. Once glass is tempered, it can no longer be cut.  Therefore, when tempered glass is required, sufficient time must be allocated due to the increased processing necessary for the production of the glass.  Approximately 2 to 3 weeks may be required depending on the specifics of the glass and the work-load of the tempering factory at the time the order is placed. Tempered safety glass can be used in many applications where safety glass is required by law.

Low-E Coated glass - Surface coatings can be applied to glass to improve the energy efficiency of the window. Low E glass coatings work by reflecting or absorbing IR light (heat energy). The Low E coating can be positioned in the window to optimize a window for reducing energy loss
