At Glass Tec Windows, we often receive enquiries about whether it is better to replace just the glass in a window or to replace the entire window. There are a few things to consider when making this decision.
First, consider the age and condition of the window frame. If the frame is old or damaged, it may be more cost-effective to to opt for replacement windows. This is because the cost of labor and materials to remove and dispose of the old frame, as well as install a new one, may be less than the cost of repairing the frame. Additionally, if the frame is in poor condition, it may not be able to support a new window glass properly, which could lead to further issues down the line.
On the other hand, if the double glazing frame is in good condition, it may be more cost-effective to replace just the glass. This is because the labor and material costs for removing and replacing the glass will be less than the cost of installing a new window.
It’s also worth considering the type of glass that needs to be replaced. If the glass is single-paned or has a simple design, it will likely be more cost-effective to replace just the glass. However, if the glass is double-paned or has a more complex design, it may be more cost-effective to for replacement windows.
In the end, the decision to replace just the glass or the entire window will depend on the age and condition of the frame, as well as the type of glass. At Glass Tec Windows, we can help you assess your options and make the best decision for your home and budget.
