Defogging VS Glass replacement

As practice shows window glass units can fail within years. There are a lot of reasons that can lead to broken seals. Temperature changes, wind, water, and other factors all have an impact on the life of a window seal.

Updated:

Windows will be exposed to the elements during their lifecycle. Quality of windows is very important and have to be on high level, it will make your windows last longer. When the seal on an insulated window fails, air is allowed to seep between the panes, where it condenses. It might not be visible from the beginning and after there has been a fairly rapid change in temperature you will notice the condensation.

STAGES OF FOGING UP GLASS UNITS

4 stage fogging

There are 2 solutions to fix broken seals:

  1. Defogging is the process of drilling tiny holes in the outside pane which allows the space to dry out properly before closing them up. This treatment process removes the water between glass panes and it might take about up to 2 month depending on the amount of moisture inside. With this procedure your window loses it energy efficiency because the argon gas can’t be pumped in again and the chances are very high that moisture will appear again in near future.
  2. Argo Glass & Windows believes glass replacement is the best solution and cost effective service to fix broken seal. This involves carefully removing the existing panes, cleaning the frame, and installing new glass in the opening. This option is typically the most cost-effective and reasonable solution to a failed glass seal.

They know what they're doing and they are extremely professional. They came on time for both scheduled appointments, they quickly figured out what needed to be done, and when they returned to install the double paned glass, they were fast and clean. I would call them again in an instant.
Courteous and skilled workers who arrived soon after I received a text message that they were on their way. They determined that my two windows would not lock because the frames had warped. Since they could not repair them, I was not charged for the service call.

We had a broken window with odd dimensions. The repair guy came out for an assessment and was super helpful. After a week, he returned with the replacement glass. He was flexible on the times. Repair cost a bit more than i expected, but cheaper then other two estimates. The new window looks great. We're very happy, especially with the customer service.
The price of the repair was very reasonable, they were fast, and the job was completed within four days after they came to my house and installed the new glass. I would highly recommend this company to others and will use them in the future.
I recently moved into the area and renovated a unit. I have used this place 4 times now from my shower glass install to special ordering glass shelves to picture glass. They are helpful, quick, reasonable, and easy to work with. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
A large picture window in our new home was completely fogged. I called Argo glass and they sent a team the same day to provide an estimate. Within a week, they had installed new window glass and also repaired an adjacent window that was not opening properly. The price was reasonable and the customer service was excellent. We will definitely use them again in the future when the need arises.
The user didn't write a review, and has left just a rating.
