Windows and doors are a home’s safe connection to the outside world. Windows when closed, keep out heat, cold, snow, and rain while letting those inside look out. Windows can then be opened to let in fresh air and let out stuffy air and contribute to a home’s ventilation and air quality. Doors are the way to get in and out of a home, but can be closed and locked for home security. Doors can have small windows in them so that the people inside can see who is outside wanting to come in, before opening the door. All glass is subject to breakage or cracking under the right conditions.
When glass in a window or door is broken or cracked, unwanted rain, cold or hot air, and even small insects can get into the home. A broken or cracked window messes up the energy efficiency of a home, raising the heating or cooling bills.
