Can You Replace Just the Glass in a Window?
When there is an issue with a window glass like a crack or condensation in between the panes, you can replace just the glass, not the windows. Usually glass only window replacement is done on vinyl windows. The glass stoppers holding the glass can be taken out and then put back without any damage to the window frame, but the whole glass unit must be replaced. Replacing a single pane of glass in a double-pane window is not possible, because they are glued together with a spacer. The grills between the glass can not be taken out for the same reason. Only the full dual pane window glass replacement with no grills is an option.

Our clients ask
Can you replace a window pane in a vinyl window?
The window’s glass consists of 2-3 glass panes, which can not be separated, so only a whole glass unit can be replaced. There are glass stoppers around the perimeter of the glass, which can be pried out to remove the glass. They snap back into the sash when the glass is replaced.
Can vinyl windows be repaired?
Yes. All the hardware parts can be repaired/replaced. The window’s sash (the moving part or the window which holds the glass) can be replaced without touching the window’s frame. And the frame is also fixable with a vinyl glue if there is a crack. Only the warpage is not repairable, you would need to replace the whole window.
Is it cheaper to replace glass in a vinyl window?
Replacing the glass is more cost effective than replacing the whole window. Unless the window is old and is not worth the investment.
How much does it cost to replace the glass in a double-pane window?
On average, it costs $250-350 to replace the glass in a double-pane window.
Can windows with condensation be repaired?
Technically the condensation can be removed with drilling a hole in the glass pane, so it can evaporate, but then the window’s seal is gone and it becomes like a single pane glass unit. Which is why it’s not a good idea to fix it this way, but to replace the glass unit.
What is the average waiting time for a vinyl windows glass replacement?
On average it takes 4-6 weeks for the glass unit to be manufactured. The replacement takes 15-30 minutes.
Is it a good idea to replace the glass in the old windows?
It is not a good idea to replace the glass in the old windows if you are thinking about increasing the energy efficiency of those. Most likely the glass is not the only problem and it will not make a noticeable impact. Even if the glass has condensation in between or cracked, it’s smarter to replace the whole window when it’s old.
The glass is usually replaced in the new windows which will last at least 10 more years. It’s not worth the expense to replace the glass in old windows, which will fail sooner than the new glass.
You would waste the money paying twice for the glass and overpaying for the labor to replace it.
Window Replacement versus Glass Replacement
When you face the question of what is better: replacing just the glass vs replacing the whole windows, there are a few things to consider in order to make the right decision.
The age of the windows
The glass is usually replaced in the new windows that will last at least 10 more years. It’s not worth the expense to replace the glass in old windows, which will fail sooner than the new glass. You would waste money paying twice for the glass and overpaying for the labor to replace it.
The condition of the windows
It is not a good idea to replace the glass in broken or worn-out windows. By the time you fix the window, the replacement parts and labor to do the job of replacing the glass can add up costing like a new window. The new glass will perform better in the new window.
The energy efficiency of the windows
It will not be beneficiary to replace the glass in the drafty windows if you are thinking about increasing the energy efficiency of those. Most likely the glass is not the only problem and it will not make a noticeable impact. Even if the glass has condensation in between or cracked, it’s smarter to replace the whole window when it’s bad.
It makes sense to replace the glass in the newer, energy-efficient windows in the good condition when the glass:
- has condensation in between
- has a crack
- loe coating oxidized
- grills design needs a change
- privacy or tint is needed
