Picture of a baseball on a broken window.

It’s baseball season, which means lookout, glass! If your home has a broken window, whether it be the consequence of a fastball that got knocked out of the park, or just wear and tear due to old age, it is best to take care of it before it causes injury or leads to further maintenance and repair concerns.

To avoid injury, we strongly advise against trying to remove or repair the window yourself. It is recommended that you speak to a representative at your local JELD-WEN dealer instead. Depending on the make, age and severity of the damage, they will be able to guide you towards a sensible solution. For advice on how to dispose of broken glass, check out the JELD-WEN blog.

To find a JELD-WEN dealer in your neighbourhood, use our handy dealer locator tool. Punch in your postal code and voila! The tool will indicate the closest certified JELD-WEN dealer to your place of residence and even give you directions on how to get there. It’s really that simple. If you find yourself in this situation and are thinking about taking the window replacement route, you can view our vast catalogue of window styles and features at jeld-wen.ca
