This winter has been particularly harsh, but broken windows still have to get fixed, which means our guys have to work outside in the frigid temperatures. What's more, in the sake of efficiency, for the most part we do our home window repairs on the spot, setting up a mobile glass-cutting/work table and disassembling and repair window sashes and frames right there on the sidewalk or driveway. While our customers appreciate this immensely, the severe cold (thirty-five degrees or colder) poses various technical problems such as wooden sashes that constrict in the cold, rubber gaskets that lose all properties of viscosity (essentially its flexibility), sealing agents such as silicone and butyl which do not dry as fast or apply evenly, and vinyl window sashes and trim which can turn quite brittle (potato chip-like, if you will).
Without question, though, the most difficult glass repair we make in the extreme cold is the older single-pane wooden windows that are glazed with glazing putty. Removing the old putty in the cold is not entirely unlike chiseling away cement. These repairs are difficult enough in fair weather, in the cold they can be downright maddening and very time consuming. Some glass companies in Philadelphia won't even repair this type of window in good weather. In cold weather most Philadelphia glass companies won't even attempt it. Atlas Glass Company performs this on a regular basis - despite inclement weather.
