Bi-Glass System® will
replace single pane glass
with high-quality insulated glass while still retaining your
old sash. Reusing your old sash saves money as well as maintaining
the architectural integrity of your house. After adding
custom made compressible jambliners, new weather-stripping
and locks, you will have a truly energy-efficient window unit
that in addition to keeping you warm and comfortable will
tilt in for easy cleaning
How it Works
a Bi-Glass® conversion,
your 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
locks to eliminate
all drafts. The sashes are then reinstalled into their openings
and adjusted to fit snugly.
Can Have Your Cake and Eat it Too!
Bi-Glass System® gives
you state-of-the-art energy efficiency, while retaining the
character of your windows. With the Bi-Glass System your windows
are efficient, double-glazed, tilt-able units comparable to
commercially manufactured wood windows.
and Condition are No Problem!
we use existing wooden sash, odd-sized windows present no
problem; we simply custom size the new glass. We offer a variety
of different balance systems from hidden
balances cut into the sash, to vinyl
compressible sash balances that reduce infiltration
and allow the window to be opened easily and tilted inward
for cleaning. Don’t worry about the condition of your windows.
If windows show an excessive amount of rot, we will repair
with epoxy consolidation, replace parts of the sash or the
whole sash with matching units. Bi-Glass works on virtually
any style of wooden window including awnings, casements, picture
windows, round-tops, extra-large units, and doors.
