Types of Glass for Your Windows

by | Nov 29, 2017 | Roofing Contractor

When you are looking at window replacement in Charleston SC, you may not be giving much thought to the glass in the windows, but it is a big factor in the overall security and efficiency of your windows. Here are the things you need to know about the glass that is in your windows:

Clear Float Glass
This is the traditional window glass that you see- clear and colorless. Float glass is the cheapest option, but it has no real value in terms of UV protection or heat transfer protection.

Tinted Glass
Tinted glass is regular glass that is colored a slightly darker shade-commonly seen in grey, brown, tan, and blue. The biggest disadvantage is that it breaks very easily and is not very durable.

Laminated Glass
Laminated Glass is the special type of window glass that is formed by two or more layers that are heated and pressed together to form a protective coating over the surface of the glass pane.

LowE Glass
This glass type is made with a thin metallic coating that gives it reflecting properties to reflect the heat and thermal radiation of the sun. LowE glass keeps the window and thus the home cooler than normal glass.
