Window Glass Replacement Ottawa or repair - which one to choose?
When you experience common window problems like fogginess, cracked or broken windows, you might face the dilemma of replacing or repairing. While it is not an easy choice to make, you will find many homeowners choosing a replacement for all the cases over repair, despite the higher cost, because they believe it is less risky or a familiar process.
Here’s when Window Medics thinks you should choose Window Glass Replacement in Ottawa service your windows -
Broken Panes: Are your window panes damaged or broken? It doesn’t matter whether it is a tiny crack or a part of the glass is removed as a result of some projectile, this type of damage doesn’t get better with time. While you think that your double pane window will still be able to protect you, and professionals suggest that you replace your glass window to preserve the insulating property. You don’t necessarily need to replace the whole window frame along with the glass. But if your window frames are old, replacing them would be a wise choice.
Rotting Wood: Many old buildings still use the old type or the same wood that surrounds and holds the glass in place. Water is an enemy to the wooden frames, and prolonged exposure to it might end up rotting or damaging the wooden frames. While early evaluation of rotting or damaging can be fixed by working to delay the rotting process, you might need to replace the whole window if you notice it late. A damaged window frame will eventually fail to protect your home and will start damaging the glass.
Broken Seals: Seals are prone to wear and tear when exposed to changing temperatures. Where double pane windows are concerned, the breaking of the seal might result in condensation. A broken seal will make it hard to salvage the pane. And it will prove difficult to bring out the glass from the seal. This often has only one option left - to replace the window as a whole.
Drafty Windows: Whether it is a problem regarding your windows refusing to open or the one where windows haven’t been closed all summer, you will find that drafts slip through them. This will be followed by your window losing the ability to insulate the interiors. Often it is a result of the gap between the divides or frames. Many factors like weather stripping, wood rotting, and loose sashes can be the cause of drafty windows. And in such cases, the only choice is to replace your windows.
When to repair your window glass?
Foggy Windows: Many double-pane and triple-pane windows face fogging caused by water condensation. As the present-day windows have in-built self-sufficient IGUs, it is not within everyone’s skills to fix or DIY the fogginess out of the window panes.

With a unique and innovative defogging process, Window Medics drills tiny holes in the window panes with an aim to draw out moisture/fogginess, and clean in between the panes, and seal the holes back to present you a fog-less glass.
