Cracked Window Repair Job
Superior Glass recently repaired a residential window in Mesa, Arizona. The homeowner called with a cracked window pane where moisture was seeping into the window and clouding the view. This not only prevents outdoor viewing and sunlight from coming through the glass but also detracts from the beauty of the home. Although temperatures in Arizona remain fairly mild and make the invasion of cold winter air less threatening than in other regions, unsightly damaged glass has a negative impact on the curb appeal of any home or business. Damaged windows and doors are also a sign of owner neglect. Broken glass can also be a safety hazard when small children may be occupying the home. There are safety issues with cracked or broken glass that may cause serious bodily injury when touched.
Glass is easily susceptible to chips and cracks, which can happen for a wide variety of reasons. If you notice that your windows have been damaged, it is important to have them repaired or replaced as soon as possible because damage can easily spread. What starts out as a small chip can turn into a hole, which can turn into a crack. At first, the crack might affect only one pane of glass in a dual or triple pane window. As cracks weaken the overall structure, however, other panes may begin to break as well. This means that the longer you wait to fix the problem, the bigger the problem can get, and the more money it will cost to repair the damage.
A broken window can make your home vulnerable in a number of other ways. Intruders can enter more easily through a window that has been compromised by a crack or hole. In the event of a natural disaster, such as an earthquake or a large storm, a compromised window may simply shatter, letting the elements enter your home at will. This dusty air uses damaged glass to transport unwanted deposits of dust inside of homes and businesses, affecting family members and employees prone to allergies or with compromised respiratory systems. The poor impact on health outweighs coatings of dust on furnishings, reducing their years of effective use and adding to an atmosphere of neglect indoors much like that promoted outside by damaged glass. The only way to make sure that your home is truly secure is to call a window repair company the moment you notice that something has damaged a window.
When considering a glass company you can rely on, it is advantageous to use one that has same-day mobile service and the experience of years in the business. Companies that specialize in window replacement will have access to the best grade of manufacturer’s glass, replacing the problematic glass with something of the same or better caliber. This glass will also conform to Arizona construction code regulations, the same requirements governing glass installed in new residential or commercial buildings.
