Patio Door Glass Unit Repair
Why the need for patio door glass unit repair?
Double pane safety glass is the standard for most patio doors. Double pane safety glass is durable, safe, energy efficient, and offers more protection than single pane glass repair. Double pane glass repair for patio doors is more expensive than single pane glass because there are two pieces of glass on double pane unit; hence the name “double pane.”
Safety glass is required on all patio doors. Safety glass prevents the window from cracking. A cracked patio door could split off into large chunks of glass and cause serious injury. Safety glass cracks into little pieces of glass that prevent injury but cause large messes.
A double pane glass unit for patio door is two pieces of safety glass, separated by a metal spacer, and sealed together to form a unit. In between the two pieces of safety glass, an air pocket is formed. This air pocket provides insulating value.
If the seal on a double pane window fails, this allows moisture in the air to seep in between the pieces of glass. This is why some windows look foggy, or it looks like there is rain on the glass all the time. Over time, the minerals in the moisture will etch the glass and leave mineral spots on the inside of the window. It is not possible to remove the moisture or mineral spots.
Since a double pane unit is made of two pieces of safety glass, this means either one or both sides of glass can break, or develop defects. If the interior side or exterior side of safety glass breaks, the only option to repair a double pane safety glass unit is to measure the glass, manufacture a new double pane safety glass unit, and swap the old double pane safety glass unit out for the new one. You are never left without a patio door.
