Lots of our clients that require double glazing repairs to their blown windows often ask the same question; will all of the units need replacing when a blown window becomes visible.
The answer is simple, and can be explained on the above pictures. Each blown window is sealed individually. If a glass replacement is required after noticing a misty glass panel, there is no need for a glass replacement of the panes next to them.
Each double glazing repair is installed into a separate area of the window or door frame. Every glass replacement has its own spacer bar, argon gas, desiccant & hot melt that seals the 2 pieces of glass together. This means that there is no connection between any sealed units that are in the same frame.
We carry our many double glazing repairs and glass replacements within Chingford and Epping on a daily basis. We only advise changing a glass unit when a blown window is become present, this will be noticed when white stains, condensation or water is seen in between the panes and glass units.
How long does a double glazing repair take
Each glass replacement can be carried within 10 to 30 minutes and is a very clean and straight forward process. There is no need to rush or panic to get the double glazing repaired if you are having decorating or tiling and other home improvements.
