Can You Replace Just the Glass in a Window?
A broken window in your home may leave you wondering what to do next. Can you replace just the glass? Will the whole window need to be replaced? The answer depends on the situation. A newer, triple pane window with broken glass may be able to be repaired if matching glass is available to replace the broken pane. However, it may not be worthwhile to replace just the glass in an older window, if there are other problems with the window or you’re likely to need your windows replaced in the near future anyway.
Sign That a Full Replacement Is a Better Option
It’s best to have your broken window evaluated by a professional who can determine if a replacement or a repair is the better option for you. However, you may be able to tell if a full replacement is necessary if you notice that:
- Your windows are no longer under warranty, indicating that a repair will be costly and the windows may be at the end of their lifespan.
- Your windows have additional damage other than cracked glass, such as sagging sills, leaking sashes, or condensation buildup.
- Your windows are drafty or you’re having trouble heating and cooling your home effectively. These are signs that your windows are not providing enough insulation for your house.
