How It Works
bi-glass of ct promo 1

The Bi-Glass Process is actually an alternative to replacing your original wooden windows.

It might sound too good to be true so we will explain both what we do and
what we do not do
.

WE TAKE PRIDE IN OUR CRAFTSMANSHIP:
We perform all work at the job site in our mobile trailer. Window sashes are removed and replaced at the end of each day. Our staff is highly trained, courteous and neat. We clean up and guarantee our work.

WHAT WE DO NOT DO:
1.
Shrink the size of the viewing or glass area, as do replacement windows.
2. Change the "look" of the building, or negatively affect the monetary or historic value.
3. Change the inside or outside window trim. Existing painting, staining and decorating remain.
4. Let in the cold or bugs. We do conversions 12 months a year. Storms and screens remain in place during conversion. We can remove them after we’re finished.

CHOOSE BETWEEN THE INVISIBLE BALANCES OR TILT STYLE CONVERSION, AS ILLUSTRATED BELOW:


INVISIBLE BALANCE STYLE
(More historically accurate)

1. Original wooden window and trim retained
2. Channel for balance system installed
3. Double-pane Low-E Glass installed
4. Invisible balance system installed in channel
5. This clip is attached to side of window frame (jamboard) and makes sash go up and down.


TILT STYLE CONVERSION

ORIGINAL WOOD RETAINED
1. Original inside window grills
2. Original window sashes
3. Original wood trim

WHAT WE DO: INSTALL
4. New double-pane Low-E glass
5. New tilt tracks
6. New weather stripping: top, middle, bottom and both sides
7. New insulation in pockets
8. New wood exterior grills


We can convert virtually any kind of wood window: double-hung, casement (we weather strip them air tight also), picture, arch, odd shapes; you name it. We update old windows to modern technology. However, they still look, and, in fact, are old (original). See the before and after illustrations below. We can also double- pane doors with tempered glass and weather-strip them airtight.

The simple fact is, once restored, your old windows (with their denser old growth wood) will outlast new wood window which are made of much less durable new growth wood. Many new quality wood windows carry only a 10 year limited warranty. Your old wood windows have already outlasted that by 10-15 times.

Since the windows will look the same as they do now after we’re finished converting them, partial installations are no problem. We can do the worst or most important windows first and work within a budget.

Cost wise: We’re more than low-end plastic/vinyl windows and usually 20-40% less than quality wood window replacements and some quality vinyl replacements.
