Have you been researching new window options and wish there was a better way? You might not need new windows. If the glass is cracked or worn, or if the seal on the window glass has failed, simply replace the glass with a clear, professionally-made, insulated glass unit (IGU). It’s less expensive – and less disruptive – than replacing an entire window. You can even upgrade with modern options you want without the hassle and expense of window replacement.
IGU replacement is a great alternative to window replacement because:
Home beauty, comfort, and value. New glass restores the beauty of your home while retaining the look and style. Insulated glass units reduce chill from heat loss in the winter, keep your home cooler in the summer, and reduce unwanted noise from outside, keeping your home comfortable. Updating your windows can even increase your homeís market value.
Save time and hassle. Glass Doctor®ís professionally-trained technicians can replace glass units within hours, not days. We remove broken and/or failed IGUís with minimal affect on window, frame, trim, and painted/stained surfaces. We even clean up before we go. Youíll also never have to worry that new windows wonít match the originals.
Energy savings. Insulated glass units create an energy-saving barrier that works much more efficiently than glass alone. This can result in significant savings on your energy bills. You may also qualify for the energy tax credit for updating to energy-efficient IGUís.
Go green. Help the environment by saving energy as well as reducing waste in landfills. Why replace and throw away an entire window when only the glass seal has failed?
Warranty. There is no need to fear that replacing the glass will be a short-term solution. When you update your window with a new, professionally-made and installed IGU from Glass Doctor®, you receive a warranty against seal failure. If your insulated unit should fail prematurely, we will replace it again for free.

Upgrade Options for even more Comfort, Security, Beauty, & Energy Savings!
Low-Emissivity (Low-E) Glass cuts sunlight glare and stops UV rays in their tracks. Low-E glass windows keep a room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by controlling the amount of light entering and exiting the room.
Laminated Glass reduces unwanted outside noise and provides an extra measure of security against breakage. If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, laminated glass may even be required according to building codes.
Tempered Glass offers extra strength and safety in case of breakage. Tempered glass is often required by code in and around doors for its extra durability, but can be used in any glass where desired. When broken, tempered glass breaks into tiny balls of glass that are not sharp to help prevent injury.
Self-Cleaning Glass. Tired of washing windows all the time? Want to help protect the environment? Invest in low-maintenance, self-cleaning glass and watch the dirt and grime slide right off when it rains. Youíll never need harsh chemicals to clean the windows again.
Options for beauty and practicality. Modern trends include blinds between glass panes, decorative or patterned glass, triple pane instead of double, interior grilles or muntin bars, etc to get the look and functionality you desire for your home.
