When heat pushes against a window's glass exterior, the exterior metal clad etc. the temperature of the glass rises at a faster rate than the rest of the frame. Glass that is sealed within the window frame itself is cooler and because of rapid temperature differences this may cause the window glass to expand, crack or it can cause the seal adhesives to breakdown. The frame itself is usually stronger than the glass and it will withstand fire and heat differences better. Newer windows have different means of protecting and strengthening the glass inside vinyl frames and thiese types have newer adhesives and reinforcement bars between the panes of glass. These bars can be decorative and also functional and they essentially square off portions of the window and give the appearance of small frames within a larger frame. These reinforcement bars help absorb impact from hailstones and redistribute pressure and even high temperatures more evenly throughout the glass. The weakest kind of windows are large, bay style windows.
Wood Frame Repairs / Oldach / BiltBest / Pella / Anderson / Marvin / Peachtree and others
Traditional wood double-paned / insulated windows can be repaired. Unlike vinyl windows, the glass pane is not sealed within the frame's matrix. Instead, the glass is glued into place within the frame. In this configuration, it is possible for the damaged pane to be removed and replaced with a new pane of glass. This technique is not practical for a vinyl frame because the glass pane cannot be removed from the vinyl casing without irreparably damaging the vinyl frame and seal.
