Should you repair your home’s windows and doors? Or replace them? This is a common question among homeowners. First, let’s discuss the difference between the two. Understanding this will probably help answer the original question.
Repairing windows generally consists of replacing the panes of glass themselves. This is necessary if the glass gets broken or scratched. In insulating glass units where there is a sealed layer of glass separating two or more panes of glass, sometimes this seal becomes broken, which would also be a cause for window glass replacement. When the seal is broken, you can often see condensation buildup between the panes, making the window appear dirty or foggy.
Home window replacement may be necessary if the framing components are damaged, cosmetically damaged or outdated, or not energy efficient.
