If an errant baseball or something else breaks a window pane in your house, do you have to get a replacement window in Rockwall, TX for it or can you get it fixed in some way? It would be nice if we could say yes or no to that question, but it’s not that simple. There are a number of factors that go into the decision.
If your window is relatively new, contact your replacement window company to talk about the options. They will know about your window style and whether or not it is still under warranty. If a warranty is in effect, there might be a breakage overage or there might not. When you call, they will probably ask questions about the break. The better you can answer them, the more likely they will be to give you an answer as to whether or not the pane of glass can be fixed.
The easiest decision is when you have an older window with single pane glass. When that window breaks, it’s simple enough to decide to get a replacement window. In fact, you might want to replace all of the windows that have single pane glass at that time. IT’s hard to fix older windows and single pane glass doesn’t do much to insulate your home anyway. Your home’s efficiency and safety is much better off with new windows.
If the windows you have are on the old side, whether they have double pane glass or not, it’s usually in your best interest to get replacement windows. They may be running to the end of their lifespan anyway and while you might not have been planning on the project right now, having one broken window gives you a good excuse to move forward.
Windows that are much newer, say within the last 5 years, can often be repaired if the breaks occur in a certain way. Call your replacement window company and they can come to your house and give you advice as to whether or not that is the case. If repairs are possible, they can likely do them for you and you can move on with your day without worrying about getting new windows at this time.
Having windows that are operational—and whole—is very important to the safety and security of your house. Even if you don’t have any broken panes, if you think you might need replacement windows in Rockwall, TX, it’s best to at least look into the project details.
