Q:This past September I replaced two windows in my son's room. I installed a double hunginsulated window, which tilts in for easy cleaning. Yesterday, my 15 year old son and acouple of his friends were tossing around a hard ball and... yes you've guessed it! Theball broke the inner glass of the top window. The outer glass is fine. Is it at allpossible to make the repair without removing the entire window from the house?
A: This is a common question. Unfortunately, it is necessary to replace the entirewindow because double pane-insulated windows are sealed in the factory to give you theinsulating benefits. Of course, it is much cheaper for you to remove the broken sectionyourself and take it to a glass company for replacement than it is to have someone come toyour home and replace it for you.
