Repairing a Broken Double Pane Window Glass
Rich Sinclair who lives in Hainesport, New Jersey emailed me asking the following question:
"Can you replace only one broken pane of a double pane window?"
The answer is simply: No
Double pane, or insulated glass, is made by taking two pieces of glass and separating them with a special spacer that has an adhesive on it. The space between the two panes of glass is filled with argon gas at the factory.
It's virtually impossible to peel off the broken glass from the seal spacer and then install a new piece of glass.
Free & Fast BIDS
You ruin the spacer in the process.
You can't apply a new piece of glass to the special spacer.
