The Midwest is home to some of the most varied weather in the US, and Omaha, NE is no exception. It’s not uncommon to see a hot, humid afternoon turn into a dark, thunderstorm-filled evening on a whim during the spring and summer months. The sudden, and sometimes dangerous, shifts in weather mean your home should always be ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store. Storm window repair is one of our specialties at Kryger Glass, as we’ve seen first-hand how much damage strong winds, hail, and tornadoes cause this time of year.
All About Storm Windows
In Nebraska, we’re used to extreme weather, which is why we always take precautions to stay safe. During storms, we protect ourselves by going to the lowest level in our homes and staying away from windows. And while our main goal is to protect ourselves and our families, it’s important to also protect your home by attaching storm windows for an extra layer of defense.
Storm windows consist of framed glass like regular mounted windows, but the difference is that they’re removable. As a result, the cost to repair them is typically lower than replacing full mounted windows. In addition, storm windows also improve home insulation, as they reduce air movement in and out of your home. Simply put: they’re worth the investment, even when the occasional repair is needed due to storm damage.
The Best Repairs with the Best Materials
We pride ourselves on our high quality materials, as we use standard grade glass and offer upgrades to Low-E energy efficient coating. If your window is repairable and you’ve scheduled your appointment, all you need to do is bring the window in for us to fix. The types of windows we can fix include:
- Two-track slider
As long as your windows have glass panes, you can leave the rest to us.
When it comes to actually fixing your storm windows, our process may involve either glass or frame repairs – depending on where the damage has occurred. Here is how we typically perform repairs to the two:
- Glass: We take apart the frame and remove the broken glass, then install new glass in place of it and add any missing component
- Frame: We remove the glass from the broken frame and install it in a new frame.
