Replacement glass and windows, Fearrington Village

Glass & Window Warehouse has been working in Fearrington Village replacing glass and installing energy efficient glass units in the historic district.

The insulated glass units, known as IG’s, replace broken or “cloudy” glass in windows.  Glass in windows is made up of 2 panes of glass separated by air or argon gas, which provides the insulation for energy efficiency.    When one pane of glass breaks or the seal fails in the IG, then the insulation is lost, so replacing it with a new insulated glass unit makes the window more energy efficient, saving money and energy.

We love to see the belted goats and cows!

 

This part of Fearrington village has double aluminum windows and sliding doors. In addition to replacement glass and windows, sometimes we just come out to take doors and windows apart for cleaning

 

With over 2,000 residents, we find we are often in Fearrington Village installing custom glass shower doors and tub enclosures, replacing glass in windows and doors or installing mirrors customized for the homeowner.

Fearrington Village is very appealing to those wishing to relocate to this area as it has a wonderful country feel but is still located near Raleigh, Durham and Research Triangle Park. The Triangle is ranked nationally as one of the best places to live and Chatham County has one of the lowest crime rates in North Carolina.   We can see why many people retire here for a better cost of living and to be near one of America’s top college towns with University of North Carolina (UNC) and Duke University.

When we are working replacing broken glass, installing glass shower doors or a screen porch in Fearrington Village, sometimes we’ll stop for lunch at the Belted Goat deli or the Granary Restaurant.  Both are great restaurants!
