The Bi Glass Process
     
  Bi-Glass Process:
 

Bi-Glass Process:

Wood windows are infinitely repairable. Entire sections can be replaced, filled with epoxy, braced and tightened, extending the life of windows for years and years. Even the most deteriorated sash can be rebuilt.
Epoxy consolidators are brushed on or poured on to stabilize and strengthen decayed wood. Once the epoxy substance, this filler can be cut, sanded and painted like wood. It will not shrink or fail over time unlike other wood fillers available.
The original window sash is removed from the frame by a trained technician.
The sash is taken outside your home to a mobile workshop. Here the technician uses a patented tool to route out the old window putty and glass. This makes room for the new, insulated glass which is installed using glazing tape and caulking. The interior muntins (grillwork) always remain intact and virtually unchanged. On the exterior of the glass we apply a muntin that matches the interior grid thereby retaining the authentic look of your original single-glazed window. In addition, we install new jambliners, hidden balances, weather-stripping, insulation, and locks to eliminate all drafts. The sashes are then reinstalled into their openings and adjusted to fit snugly*.

Our technicians are highly trained, courteous and neat. We clean up after ourselves and guarantee our work.
We offer wavy glass to keep the old look of your windows. Low E and Argon gas are available options that are an added insulation for energy efficiency. Low-e coating on one or more of the panes reduce heat flow by slowing the rate at which heat is emitted from the glass. Argon gas filling-is installed between the panes of insulated glass units.
The balance system of the windows controls the up and down movement of a sash in a single-hung  or double-hung window. The parts of the system are replaced when needed for optimal functionality of your windows. Some options include new tilt-in, vinyl PVC, foam backed, adjustable Jambliners, new hidden balances and new tape balances or brass chain.

Various types of weather stripping options are available resulting in sealing any opening from the elements. New silicone bulb weather-stripping at all horizontal joints, fiberglass or foam weather stripping  insulation for weight cavities, also Felt and vinyl flap weather-stripping systems for restoration.
