Should You Replace All Your Windows At Once In Sydney?

When considering window replacements, we’ve noticed many people asking if they should replace all their windows in the one big job, or if they should be replaced individually.

Do you have a similar question? Then you’ve come to the right place, and hopefully after this read you’ll have all the necessary information to make a more informed decision.

Like any costly project, there’s many things to consider, so if you’re planning window installation or replacements in Sydney, it’s time to think efficiently.

From what we’ve seen, the majority of people prefer replacing their home windows separately due to economic and financial reasons, but is that really the smartest choice? Probably the most important thing to keep in mind is choosing the most efficient and trustworthy window company in Sydney, selecting one known for providing quality services, like Complete Glass Projects.

Why Shouldn’t You Replace One Window At A Time?

As we mentioned earlier, many Sydney homeowners like to replace one or a few windows at a time to save money. These people also like to replace windows that only serve the most purpose in their life, forgetting about the more hidden ones. For example, people wanting more light in their home would typically only consider replacing windows in the areas they use most, like their kitchen or living room.

The main disadvantage to partial replacement projects is that it actually may end up costing more in the long term. Say someone had ten windows in their Sydney home and only replaced seven of them, it will most likely cost more to replace the remaining few in the future then what it would’ve if done all in the same job.

Another key downside is the differences in look! The new windows often look completely different to your older ones, featuring different colours and materials, which can alter the overall look and curb appeal of your house.

Finally, you should always keep in mind how time-consuming window replacement can be, so if you have a busy lifestyle with a bunch of young ones, it’s much more time efficient to replace all windows at once.

Signs You Need Window Replacement

If you’re still on the fence and would rather partial window installation, then it’s important to pay attention to the signs that your window needs replacement.

Here are some:

  • Leaks – The first factor you need to consider is water leakage. If you have several windows in your Sydney home, then you should replace those first with leakage issues. However, some minor leakages can actually be fixed easily, but if the leakage cannot be repaired, then it’s time to take quick action!
  • Broken Glass – This is also an important sign that points to window replacement. Broken glasses hamper the look of your house, and by not replacing them, you are only making your home less secure and unsafe.

What Type Of Glazing Is Best For My Window Wall

At Complete Glass we are glazing experts.

With a variety of glazing types on the market and we know it can be confusing to know which is right for your project. Glazing comes in various thicknesses, energy performance enhancements, colour tints and decorative films we are here to guide you to the correct solution for your project.

In this post we will be discussing size considerations for window wall glazing, the most appropriate glazing for thermal performance and safety, glass options for decorative and privacy applications and unique glass types with technological advancements.

The Size Of Your Windows Matter!

In Sydney, the most noticeable attribute of window walls is their size and span. Glass can now be fabricated to full story heights and wall to wall expanses to form very large openings.

The size of the individual window units is only retrained by the fabrication capacity of the glass manufacturer. The rise in technology and fabrication ability have pushed the limits on the size of glass.

You may have some some modern houses showcasing full floor to ceiling panels of glass which were once though inconceivable. Although these windows have a great visual appeal, they also come at a higher cost. Simply put, the larger the unit of glass, the higher the price.

It is recommended by most Sydney window manufacturers to stay below 4.6m2 of glass per unit. Anything more than this and the costs will start to rise. It is also important to note that very large pieces of glass could limit the number of glass fabricators that can make the piece of glass itself.

It’s important to note that big operable windows or doors are not only limited by the glass fabrication company but also the window and door hardware. The capacity of hardware will be vital to the weight and proportion of the unit getting bigger and heavier.

Great the Layers = Greater the Efficiency

It is common that most modern windows are made up of double or triple-paned units. Windows that are multi-paned (2-4 layers of glass) have either an air or gas-filled layer between each individual sheet. This filler layer adds extra insulation and enhances the thermal performance of the entire glass panel. These insulated glazing units are sometimes called IGUs for short.

It is common for most window wall manufacturers to use double paned IGU’s for their standard window assembly. Most single paned windows aren’t energy efficient enough. If you are concerned with the energy loads you should consider triple-paned windows or choosing higher performing glass panels as we will describe below.

What Glass Is Best For Thermal Protection?

As windows do no have a great thermal performance in comparison to solid walls, most glass manufacturers are working towards technological advancements to make windows more sustainable and energy efficient. Most windows companies now offer a wide range of windows that are energy efficient.

Below are the most common glazing options to improve thermal performance:

Low-Emissivity (Low-E) Glass – This is glass that has a special invisible coating to reflect and block out heat, all while minimising UV rays from passing through the glass.

Reflective Glass – This is glass that has been treated with a metallic coating to help reflect heat and radiation rather than absorbing it. Reflective glass reduces heat gain and visible light transmission. There are two methods that are used to do so, colour tints and reflective films.

Colour tinted glass – This is glass with small colour additions such as bronze, green, blue or grey. It can help to regulate solar heat gain by absorbing the heat. The colour is homogenous throughout the expense of glass and will not affect the basic properties of the glass itself except for solar energy transmission.

Reflective films – This involves a reflected film that is applied to one side of the glass to decrease solar gain. This in turn reflects more light and often has a mirror effect.

Of these two options it is most common for Low-E glass to be used on window wall project and manufacturers usually provide this as a standard for a range of window systems to help reach the energy requirements of today’s codes. Reflective glass is generally used in the commercial sector for storefront systems and curtain walls.

Safety Glazing Options For Window Walls

When designing a Sydney window wall system you must also consider its safety. As we know, glass is sharp when it is broken, therefore there are ways to minimise hazards associated with glass breakage, using tempered and laminated glass options.

Tempered Glass – This is a type of safety glass that is stronger both physically and thermally to normal glass. When this type of glass is broken it shatters into granular pieces instead of splintering into jagged shards of glass. The tempering process makes the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces but tension. These granular pieces are far less likely to cause injury.

Laminated Glass – This safety glass holds itself together when it is broken or shattered. It has a special interlayer that sticks between the glass layers.

Decorative & Other Types Of Unique Glass

In addition to temperature regulating and safety options for window glazing, there are also a variety of decorative Sydney window options for privacy and other features. These are not standard or traditional window wall systems so you may need to request and enquire.

Some include:

Translucent Glass – This is achieved with sandblasting, acid etching or applying a specific film to make the glass less transparent for privacy or decorative reasons.

Self-Cleaning Glass – This is glass that has a chemical coating that reacts with the daylight to minimise and break down organic dirt. It cleans itself via both daylight and rain.

Bird-Friendly Glass – This glass is patterned with a UV reflective coating. It is visible to birds but not to the human eye therefore it remains translucent to us.

Electrochromic Privacy Glass – This glass can turn opaque or translucent with the flick of a switch (electrodes are installed to the inside of the glass and when an electric current runs through it, the ions react and move to reflect light). It is most commonly used for privacy reasons.

What Is Glazing And Why Is It Important?

Complete Glass are Sydney’s expert Glaziers. We’ve been servicing Sydney for over 10+ years with fast, efficient, and affordable glassing solutions.

If you live in Sydney and need to replace your glass windows, it is important to be aware of what glazing is. Primarily people believe that this is something you do to your windows in order to make them more energy efficient.

Windows comes in all different styles and types, but Glazing actually refers to the glass itself that is installed within the frame. This is usually with single or dual pane sheets.

If you need energy efficient windows, at Complete Glass we can help deliver and install the best glass sheets at the most competitve prices. If you want to ensure your home is sealed up completely, you can even opt to install a triple glaze that will fit in between the two panes.

Does Complete Glass Recommend Glazing Your Windows?

One of the best things you can to do maximize the energy efficiency of your home is glazing the property windows. Aside from doors, poorly functioning windows are usually the biggest culprits for heat loss. If you have an older home or if you’ve only recently moved into a new property your windows might need to be reglazed. This could be for a wide range of factors such as, if the glass has been damaged or cracked in any way, you can be sure that something will need to be done sooner or later. If you have a cracked or damaged glass window it is always better to fix the problem as quickly as possible. This is because glass can be dangerous and you do not want it to break and shatter and potentially cause anymore harm. If the glass is cracked or warped, this is a sure sign that you should contact Complete Glass to come and inspect the window and see if a window replacement or reglazing will need to be performed.

To be clear, the majority of reglazing jobs are actually performed on glass windows that have reached a point of decay rather than windows that are damaged. Glass Windows do have an expiration date and when that time comes you should contact Complete Glass to make sure you get them reglazed properly.

So What Is Involved In A Reglaze By Complete Glass?

Well a reglaze can mean a few different things. It does not only mean installing ones that have multiple panes of glass. Most glass can be tinted as well, which entails having a coat of clear film present to block out light and even further save on energy costs.

Depending on what Sydney Glazing work needs to be performed you will probably want to hire a professional glazier like Complete Glass to the job for you. As glazing experts we know that many older homes have windows that simply cannot be replaced. Homeowners will often want to preserve the character and style of the era, which can pose an issue when the glass itself needs to be reglazed. You can either have someone come to the job at your home, or you can send your windows in to a firm that specializes in reglazing services.
