Hurricane windows are something we know an awful lot about at ASP Windows. After all, we are your South Florida impact door and windows experts. It’s all we do. One of the most commonly asked questions we receive is can impact windows be repaired? Here’s what you need to know.
Can Impact Windows Break?
Impact windows are a great addition to any home. This is especially true in South Florida, where the threat of hurricanes makes securing your home one of the most important things you can do. But impact windows offer far more than just protection. They are great for reducing your home’s cooling costs by helping to keep cool air in and keeping the hot rays from the Sun out.
What makes impact windows so great is that they are extremely resistant to shattering or cracking. They are especially good at withstanding severe changes in pressure. Unfortunately, these high-impact windows can still be cracked or broken if they suffer a severe enough blow. When such damage occurs, replacing your impact glass quickly is essential, as it can help to reduce the potential for structural damage to your home and the window frame itself.
Can You Repair Impact Windows?
Fortunately, replacing the broken glass in an impact window is a fairly straightforward process. When you notice damage to your hurricane windows, you will need to place an order with either the manufacturer or with the company which installed your windows and doors. Once notified, an expert technician will be dispatched to your home to inspect the damage and make an assessment.
Once they have assessed the damage and determined the best course of action, they will usually use a specialized tool to carefully remove the glazing from the impact windows. By removing this glazing (the adhesives) the technician will be able to replace the damaged insert of impact glass with a new piece of glass of the same size and thickness. Once fitted, the technician will ensure the seals are tight and everything is as good as new.
As previously mentioned, the process for replacing impact glass which has been damaged is very straightforward and easy. This means you don’t have to lose sleep over your home being damaged by another storm, rising energy costs, or the fear of someone breaking in because of a damaged storm window. Just call the impact window experts at ASP Windows and we can have your damaged glass repaired in no time!
