Broken Window Seal and Fogged Glass Repairs in Lower Mainland

Unfortunately there is no good solution for windows with blown seals you can do on your own. The glass needs to be replaced. Luckily for you the window itself doesn’t need replacement.

If you look between between the sheets of glass in your windows you will see a spacer. That is the thing keeping the glass panes apart. It is also the source of the leak that is allowing moisture between the panes.

Tinted Glass
There are many different grades, shades, colours, and thicknesses of available window films built to offer solutions to a variety of challenges. Window films are a retrofit upgrade for existing glass that can be used to address problems inherent to glazing, including:

– Heat and glare reduction
– Thermal insulation
– UV filtration
– Safety and security
– Privacy
– Decoration, Signage and branding
– Protection from graffiti

Window films are an extremely cost-effective method to reduce heating and cooling costs in existing buildings by reducing the amount of heat transfer through glazing.

Security Glass
This type of glass is becoming more popular for storefronts because of its ability to resist shattering. If the glass does break, then an external film or an internal laminate holds the window together.

Toughened Glass
Toughened glass is processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering, by design, creates balanced internal stresses which causes the glass sheet, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks of similar size and shape instead of splintering into random, jagged shards.

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is layers of glass and plastic. When laminated glass is broken, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass, which crumble into small pieces. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its toughening prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass.

Tempered Glass
Glass that is tempered is another type of safety design used for a storefront. This glass is treated with a chemical or thermal application to give it increased strength. The result is glass that breaks into chunks instead of sharp pieces.

If you look between between the sheets of glass in your windows you will see a spacer. That is the thing keeping the glass panes apart. It is also the source of the leak that is allowing moisture between the panes.

There are a number of different materials used for spacers and a number of methods for sealing the insulating glass unit, some are very good and some are not very good. The best ones will have a seal failure rate of well below a fraction of 1% over 20 years. The not so good ones are closer to 6% or 7% (or more) over 20 years.

Double Glazing for Thermal Insulation
Glass used in double glazing window for thermal insulation is known as Low E, or low-emission glass. It has a transparent metallic coating that works in two ways to economize heating energy. The dual action coating reflects heat back into the room, whilst allowing heat and light from the sun to pass through.

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is comprised of one or more inter-layers, sandwiched between two or more sheets of float glass. The inter-layers are composed of a PVB (polyvinyl butyal) laminate, or cast resin.

Glass Against Vandalism and Infraction
Security glass offers protection against aggression and can act as an important deterrent against vandalism and infraction.

Acoustic Glass
Acoustic glass considerably reduces outside noise, especially near busy areas such as motorways, main roads and airports. When used in overhead or roof glazing, double glazing window also provides insulation from rain impact noise. It can be used for interior sound insulation needs, such as office partitions and meeting rooms.

Toughened Glass
Toughened, or tempered, glass is four to five times stronger than ordinary float glass. If it is broken relatively harmless fragments, known as ‘dice’, are formed which are unlikely to cause injury.

Safety Glass
Safety glass is now mandatory in some areas of the home, as well as throughout some types of buildings such as schools. Glass used in roofs must also meet safety requirements in case of an object falling on to the double glazing window which could cause fragments falling below.

Colorful Glass
Decorative glass for glazing can be manufactured in a variety of ways to give a wide choice of patterns, textures, colors and opacity. Decorative glass effects can be created on double glazing window panels by silvering, tinting, acid-etching or applying ceramic paints. The design can offer partial or total coverage, for improved aesthetics and privacy.

A thief climbed the roof of the adjacent building, then got on to the building of a high end merchandise store, and then smashed the skylight glass with a brick. That’s how the thief entered the store. As the result the thief stole merchandise valued at $10,000 before VPD officers showed up. In the picture you can see a temporary cover that is placed there until the unbreakable specialty glass is received and installed.

Here is the most commonly used glass we work with:

Clear Float Glass
Float glass is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin, although lead and various low melting point alloys were used in the past. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces.

Tinted Glass
Tinted glass is produced by adding metal oxides to float glass during manufacture. Tinted glass absorbs and re-radiates solar energy reducing heat and in can provide cost efficient climate control. Tinted glass also reduces sun glare and is aesthetically appealing.

Reflective Glass
Reflective Glass achieves offers greater solar control than standard tinted float glass and can be used to create a specific visual appearance in a building.

Toughened Glass
Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass (a.k.a. annealed glass) creates. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass. In the case of the EVA, the thermoset EVA, offers a complete bounding (cross-linking) with the material whether it is glass, polycarbonate, PET, or other types products.

LowE Glass
Low Emissivity glass has a thin metallic coating on the glass that reflects thermal radiation or inhibits its emission reducing heat transfer through the glass. Low E glass reflects the radiation rather than absorbing it, improving insulation. LowE glass is available in a range of colours including, Clear, Neutral, Blue, Green and Grey

Double Glazing
Insulating glass (IG), more commonly known as double glazing (or double-pane, and increasingly triple glazing/pane), consists of two or three glass window panes separated by a vacuum or gas filled space to reduce heat transfer across a part of the building envelope.
