Glass Repair Philadelphia - Atlas Glass Repair Philadelphia PaWe get many phone calls from Philadelphia-area homeowners asking if we do residential glass repair. The answer is a definite YES. More often than not the next question is "How much is it to fix my window?" That one is somewhat more difficult to answer. There are many different types of residential windows - double-hung, single-hung, casement, operating, non-operating,  hack-outs, single-pane, double-pane (aka thermal or insulated) and more. There are some older windows that were never designed to be repaired, especially those aluminum-framed, single-pane, non-tilt-in windows from about forty-fifty years ago. There are even some very famous-brand wood-framed  thermal windows from around twenty-five years ago that also were never designed to be repaired (at least not by anyone other than a carpenter).

There are many variables to consider when it comes to even the simplest of home window repairs, but none more than double-pane thermal windows. Obviously, the height and width are important, but there are several other factors that come into play. Overall thickness - the distance from the inner pane to the outer pane - is important as well. This distance can be anywhere from 3/8 inch to 1 full inch and quite literally anywhere in between. 
 
Then there's the thickness of the glass itself, typically 5/32, 1/8 and sometimes even 3/16 inch thick. The overall thickness and thickness of the glass itself don't have that much effect on price, but something that does is whether or not the the unit (in the biz they are referred to as Insulated Glass Units) has a muntin in it or has low e glass. A Muntin is the decorative gridwork which is located between the two panes of glass on some units. Below is an example of a muntin unit. There is a significant price difference between an insulated glass unit with a muntin and one without.



There is also the question of whether the unit contains low E glass (for a full description of what low E glass is and does,  check out our Glossary Of Glass Terms). Most windows from the past twenty years have low E glass. Windows from the past 5-10 years have the newer generation low E glass which has a fairly healthy green-tint to it (All glass has a slight green tint it but this type of glass is flat-out green).  Older low e glass windows can typically be replaced with clear glass I. G. units with no discernible visual difference, but the newer green-hued low E glass needs to be matched up or there will be a very noticeable visual difference. Low E I.G. units cost more then ordinary glass I. G. units. One way to tell if you have the newer generation low E glass is to simply look at it with a critical eye. Another is to hold up a white piece of paper next to it. For the record, most customers  aren't even aware of the the green tint until we point it out to them. Below is a picture of an insulated glass unit made with the new generation low E glass. As you can see it is quite green
