At Sky Windows Ltd. we provide all kinds of glazing and glass replacement services for the property and building managers and owners.

Call us any time at 604 657 0381 for a FREE QUOTE!

Common types of glazing that are used in architectural applications include clear and tinted float glass, tempered glass, and laminated glass as well as a variety of coated glasses, all of which can be glazed singly or as double, or even triple, glazing units. Ordinary clear glass has a slight green tinge but special colorless glasses are offered by our manufacturers.

Float Glass
A sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin, although lead and various low melting point alloys were used in the past. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces.

Toughened or Tempered Glass
Type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass creates. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

Insulating Glass (IG)
More commonly known as double glazing or double-pane, and increasingly triple glazing/pane, consists of two or three glass window panes separated by a vacuum or gas filled space to reduce heat transfer across a part of the building envelope.

Glazing can be mounted on the surface of a window sash or door stile, usually made of wood, aluminium or PVC. The glass is fixed into a rabbet in the frame in a number of ways including triangular glazing points, putty, etc. Toughened and laminated glass can be glazed by bolting panes directly to a metal framework by bolts passing through drilled holes.

Commercial Storefront Window and Door Glass Repairs Near Me

Sky Windows Ltd. team of professionals will fix your commercial storefront window or door glass fast and at a great price anywhere in the Lower Mainland.

Call us any time at 604 657 0381. We are open 24/7!

There are many types of glass we can use for your storefront. Many of the common types of glass have features that make it a great choice for any type of business. If you are considering updating your storefront with a new design, then there are many types of glass you can choose from. Clear glass is the most commonly used option for the storefront of any type of business, which allows anyone to see what is inside the building or business.

Tinted Glass
There are many different grades, shades, colours, and thicknesses of available window films built to offer solutions to a variety of challenges. Window films are a retrofit upgrade for existing glass that can be used to address problems inherent to glazing, including:

- Heat and glare reduction
- Thermal insulation
- UV filtration
- Safety and security
- Privacy
- Decoration, Signage and branding
- Protection from graffiti

Window films are an extremely cost-effective method to reduce heating and cooling costs in existing buildings by reducing the amount of heat transfer through glazing.

Security Glass
This type of glass is becoming more popular for storefronts because of its ability to resist shattering. If the glass does break, then an external film or an internal laminate holds the window together.

Toughened glass
Toughened glass is processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering, by design, creates balanced internal stresses which causes the glass sheet, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks of similar size and shape instead of splintering into random, jagged shards.

Laminated glass
Laminated glass is layers of glass and plastic. When laminated glass is broken, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass, which crumble into small pieces. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its toughening prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic "spider web" cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass.

Tempered Glass
Glass that is tempered is another type of safety design used for a storefront. This glass is treated with a chemical or thermal application to give it increased strength. The result is glass that breaks into chunks instead of sharp pieces.

If you have noticed fogged glass in your windows or doors then you have a problem with the broken seals. Sky Windows Ltd. will fix that for you fast and at an affordable price.

Call us now at 604 657 0381 even it's an emergency!

Unfortunately there is no good solution for windows with blown seals you can do on your own. The glass needs to be replaced. Luckily the window itself doesn't need replacement.

If you look between between the sheets of glass in your windows you will see a spacer. That is the thing keeping the glass panes apart. It is also the source of the leak that is allowing moisture between the panes.

There are a number of different materials used for spacers and a number of methods for sealing the insulating glass unit, some are very good and some are not very good. The best ones will have a seal failure rate of well below a fraction of 1% over 20 years. The not so good ones are closer to 6% or 7% (or more) over 20 years.
