Fast, honest, efficient and professional. Great job!
I was very happy with Argo. When they came out to consult, their tech Stan was on time and thorough, but didn't go for any high pressure sales. He just presented the info we needed and let us make a decision in our own time. We had two double paned windows replaced by Den. He was on time and they were in and out of the house in under an hour. The windows look great and are indistinguishable from what we had unless you get really close up and see they are a higher quality. Great job overall and very happy with their work.
Den replaced a window which had fogged and deteriorated with age. He was very professional, handling everything with care and cleaning up when finished. I would recommend their work.
I needed a repair to a window that was stuck and I could no longer open. Argo was quite accommodating and scheduled the appt promptly. The morning of my appointed time I received a text message stating he was on his way. Showed up promptly at appointed time and was quite pleasant and went right to work fixing the issue along with a recommendation. Cost was extremely affordable and much les than I thought it would be. I highly recommend Argo Glass & Windows!
Argo replaced all wood on five windows. The finished product looked as good as new. The matching stain was perfect. The technicians were professional and cleaned everything before leaving. I recommend Argo to anyone needing windows repaired. Sharon Munson Milwaukee
From scheduling an appointment to the end repair, they delivered with no disappointments. Extremely professional! Dan was our technician and he did a fantastic job.
Had a large tempered glass window with a rotted out frame. Home depot quoted me $2,400.00 to replace it .Argo glass quoted me $500.00 to fix it. Argo did the job in about 6 hrs. They removed the window, rebuild the damaged frame, reinstalled the window, stained the wood to match beautifully. Cleaned up everything. The carpentry craftsmanship of Max the worker was excellent. Argo exceeded my expectations. This company really knows what they are doing.

    Grids, muntins or muntin bars are metal or wooden strips separating or holding window panes. The grills can't be removed, if you try so the thermopane will be ruined, it will not be insulated anymore and there is a high risk of breaking the glass.
  • Can you replace a single pane of glass in a double pane window?

Window Reglazing and Bead Replacement

Windows in perfect condition prevent drafts and big bills for heating in winter, and stuffiness summer – as well as that space requires less conditioning.

Unfortunately, windows tend to break or simply wear and tear. Not only that this is affecting negatively functionality and appearance, but is also messes your budget and increases bill costs. Other reasons for improper work are bad initial service on glazing or bead montage – and the list goes on and on. To get rid of these problems, you might need glass reinstallment (reglazing) or bead replacement.

Speaking of windows – ones with double panes they are a perfect choice for people living nearby busy roads or in areas with a lot of noise outside. They isolate unpleasant sounds better than those with only one pane, so consider switching a glass in frames. Plus, more panes mean better energy-efficiency too – it is much better to change them once and pay less for bills since that. More units do not take more maintenance.

Professionals take away the old glass, maintain a frame (sand-papering, applying a new paint layer, replacing seals and so on) and put a new pane in it, then secure it inside and make sure everything is proper.
