When choosing a window replacement contractor, make sure that they are certified by your local better business bureau and have insurance coverage. Many times glass companies will offer free estimates and take care of the glass types and colours in the home. Some companies will do a low-e coating for glass that is low-E, which cuts down on the overall price of replacement. However, it is important to note that some glazing materials are low in E but high in UV, such as acrylic and polycarbonate.


Low-E glass is also referred to as laminated glass and is a laminated glass that has an extra layer of sealer on the back of a layer of low-E glass to make it more resistant to abrasion and the wear and tear of daily life.

This weight will include the weight of the frame, the glass and any trim needed to cover the window.

In some cases where a window does not have to be replaced, the entire window may need minor repairs such as cleaning and window tinting.
