Fogged Window Repair
Glass doors and windows look great when they are new. But over time, they can start to look cloudy. This ruins the look of your door or window, but replacements can be expensive. Why does this occur? The reason your double pane doors and windows get a cloudy look has to do with what is between those layers of glass. When they are new, your double pane glass fixtures hold a layer of gas between the glass panes. This is typically simply air and insulates the window to lower the amount of heat that is lost. When your windows look foggy, the seal that protects the layers has been compromised. Condensation forms between the panes and causes the cloudy appearance.
If your double pane glass window has become foggy, you should consider glass repair instead of complete window replacement. Repair for your fogged glass is much less expensive than replacing the window. The professionals at Lightning Glassworks & Screens can remove the original window, and manufacture a new double pane unit creating a new tight seal and thus removing the condensation mess. Then, they will replace the old pane with the new double pane restoring the beauty of your window.
Balance Lifter Replacement
The job of a window balance is to prevent a panel from falling down after it’s been lifted. Considering the weight of some large windows, this can be quite a task. Modern window balances are categorized by the amount of weight they are able to lift.
When your window refuses to stay open, you probably need to have a balance lifter replacement. We offer a complete range of replacement services for all brands, materials, and styles, so you can enjoy a little fresh air whenever you want.
As your windows age, they lose their good looks and ability to effectively seal the weather out. Leaks form, allowing the outside temperatures inside. This makes it hard to keep your home comfortable and raises your heating and cooling bills during the effort.
Modern windows offer a much better seal from the outside weather. The professionals at Lightning Glassworks & Screens can help you determine which windows will work best for your home. We offer window replacement services for your old or damaged windows in Black Forest and many other areas of Colorado Springs.
