Window Glass Replacement: Why It Isn’t a DIY Project

If you have a broken window in your home, you should take care of the window glass replacement as soon as possible. Delaying this repair can cost you money and make your home uncomfortable during hot, cold, or stormy weather. Sometimes homeowners try to fix broken windows on their own. However, in many cases, window glass replacement is not a do-it-yourself task. Ryan’s all-glass examines why you should hire a professional to replace your window.

Preparing Your Frame

When you have a broken window in your home, it won’t be a clean break. What we mean is that there will be jagged pieces of glass remaining on the frame after the window breaks. If you want window glass replacement without having to replace the frame, you must prepare the frame properly. This is where a professional saves you tons of time and labor. Removing old glass is an extensive process that includes removing glass shards, cutting away old putty stuck to the frame, and preparing the frame for the new glass pane. Professional glass companies like Ryan’s all-glass will take care of the entire process for you.

Finding the Right Size for the Pane

When it comes to window glass replacements, the size of the pane is an exact science. You might have a window that doesn’t conform to the typical frame sizes. If you have an older home, replacements are hard to come by with modern manufacturers. Finding the correct pane size might even require a custom glass company. This is because you can’t use a pane that is close to the right size; you have to get the size exactly right. If you are attempting to fix the broken window yourself, you need to know how to measure the proper size for the pane of glass. Ryan’s all-glass can help get the right pane and get it installed for you in no time. Some glass replacements may take just a few hours of your time. 

Cutting the Glass

Window glass replacements for custom windows are notoriously difficult. They require a custom glass pane based on what you had there originally. Panes could be very large, thicker than normal, or have aesthetic designs that need custom cutting. Ryan’s all-glass will get your custom glass window replaced and return your home back to normal in no time.

How Much Do Glass Replacements Cost?

Broken glass in the home can be a stressful situation because it can be dangerous for children and pets as well as causing problems with your electric and heating bills. However, one of the reasons why people delay having their broken glass fixed is because of the cost. So, when glass breaks in your home, how much will it cost to get a glass replacement? In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass takes a look at the cost of glass replacements.

Broken Windows

Broken windows are the most common problem when it comes to home glass replacements because they are exposed to the elements. Luckily, broken windows are also the cheapest glass pieces to replace, depending on the type of windows in your home. Single pane windows can be replaced for as little as $50, but double pane windows can be a little more expensive.

Broken Mirrors

Broken mirrors can be more difficult to replace because they often have unique cuts and edging. Non-vanity mirrors are particularly difficult to replace because they aren’t an easy cut like windows and vanity mirrors. Depending on what mirror is broken, it can be difficult and expensive to find glass replacements. For simple round and square cut mirrors, replacements can go for as little as $50.  However, the price can jump considerably for custom cut glass replacements.

Glass Replacements for Other Broken Pieces

If your home has a lot of glass, windows and mirrors might not be the only piece at risk of being broken. Glass shelves and cabinets might also be at risk, but can be less difficult to replace. For example, if you have a broken glass shelf, it can often be cheap to replace. Replacing just one shelf or support is often quite affordable unless it is a very unique cut. For businesses, glass replacements might be needed for things like storefront windows and unique custom glass pieces like display cases and glass conference rooms.
