Single Glazed Clear Glass

Single glazed windows are typically the least expensive to repair; you have one layer of glass to replace compared to two or more layers in insulated glass products.

Relative to all other glazing options, single-glazed with clear glass allows the highest transfer of energy, (i.e. heat loss or heat gain depending on local climate conditions), while permitting the highest daylight transmission.

Single Glazed vs Double Glazed: What’s the Difference

A single glazed window is constructed using a single pane of glass. This means that the only thing separating your home from the outside environment, is that single pane of glass. Typical window glass ranges from 3mm to 10mm, which doesn’t provide adequate insulation.

A single glazed window can be up to 20 times less efficient than an insulated wall when it comes to energy loss or storage.

Double glazed windows utilize two separate pieces of glass, separated by an insulated air spacer . The air spacer acts as an insulative barrier. Hence, when the barrier or air space breaks the window will build up condensation and sweat. The window has then failed and the glass needs to be replaced.

Replacement of Failed Dual Panes

Dual pane replacement and/or insulated glass units is really a specialty that you should leave up to the professionals.

Insulated Glass Dual Pane

Not only is the exact size required, but usually the exact same thickness, overall, must be used for just the perfect fit!

Unfortunately, window manufacturers use a variety of thicknesses and components to make up the thickness and can vary from one manufacturer to another.

For instance, two insulated glass units may both be 1/2″ in total thickness but one may use single-strength for both panes while the other may use double-strength for both panes. The technical differences between the two types are minor in both appearance and costs.

Failed means the window has “fogged up” on the inside and the seal around the edges is broken which allows moisture inside the unit, and builds up condensation. The entire glass, insulated unit, then needs to be replaced.

Sliding Tub Enclosures

Shower enclosures can come in many sizes and shapes with a wide variety of metal finishes that can be used or even custom painted to your tastes.
