O’Neill Glass specializes in glass replacement for your residential windows or commercial storefronts. When doing so, we replace just the window glass, custom sized which saves you the expense of having to replace the entire frame and difficulties trying to match the existing paint or stain.
What is Insulated Glass?
An insulated glass unit is made up of two or more layers of glass adhered together with a spacer in between. When a seal fails, or glass is damaged, the sealed air in between the layers escapes and moisture-laden air is drawn in. When this happens, the window will look dirty or foggy regardless of cleaning methods. This is caused by the moisture that was drawn into the unit leaving mineral deposits on the inner surfaces of the glass.
The only way to solve this problem is with expert glass replacement of the insulated unit. An insulated unit can be made up of clear glass, tempered glass, low-e, tinted and pattern glass.
This application is mostly used in situations where the glass unit acts as a barrier separating the indoors from the outdoors. Almost all the glass units used on the outside walls of residential and commercial units are insulated. This reduces temperature transfer and helps save energy.
