Glass Replacement | Best Pick Reports

If glass in your home is experiencing problems, it may be time to replace it.

Fogged windows. Double-pane windows incorporate two parallel sheets of glass with an insulating air space between them. Over time, the seal around the edge of the window can become cracked or damaged, allowing air to penetrate. While the moisture in this air evaporates, mineral deposits left behind can leave stains or streaks on the windows.

Broken glass. Cracks in glass can occur in a number of places in the home, including patio doors, windows, shelves, and tables. Cracked or broken glass in a home should always be replaced as a safety measure.

Because of their construction, even if a crack occurs in only one panel of a double-pane window, the entire unit will need to be replaced.
