April 27, 2017 2:35 pm Published by 18 Comments

When the windows in your home or business withstand some damage, the first thought running through your head might be the impending replacement costs headed your way. Thankfully, there are plenty of cases in which issues with your windows and glass can be remedied with a simple repair. It’s important to be able to identify whether damage to your window warrants a repair or a complete replacement. If your glass needs a repair, you can save money on the cost of a replacement and, in the event that you need a replacement, you can ensure that you won’t have any recurring issues with your windows that will result in more expenses down the road.

Things to consider when deciding between repair and replacement

Your main consideration when choosing between window repair and window replacement in Oklahoma City, OK is ensuring that the glass in your home or business is in good condition. Another thing to think about is how cost effective either option is. If you’re considering replacement because of scratches, dings or cracks in your window panes, window replacement in Oklahoma City, OK might be a good option. Depending on the cost of the glass itself—whether inexpensive vinyl or more costly reinforced windows—you can make a determination of the best course of action. For example, replacing a vinyl window might very well give you more bang for your buck than a repair. Additionally, repairing low-quality windows gives you the opportunity to install more up-to-date, energy efficient windows that could save you money on your monthly energy bill.

If you’ve noticed that your windows are leaky or drafty, you might be glad to know that a simple repair can help solve the problem. Caulking and weather stripping is a low-cost and relatively quick method to seal up drafts and leaks in the window seal and prevent outside air from leaking into your home or business. When it comes to broken seals, on the other hand, a replacement is probably in order. Broken seals manifest themselves in windows as foggy condensation or streaks that appear between the panes of your glass. The cause of broken seals is generally oxidation caused by high temperature heat that ruptures the glass seals. While there are some products on the market that claim to restore windows with broken panes, these solutions seldom work to completely bring back the damaged glass. Your best bet when you have broken window seals is to invest in complete window replacement in Oklahoma City, OK.
