Window Replacement Gold Coast
Home Window Replacement
If your windows are starting to look worn, damaged, or don’t work like they used to, it may be time to consider replacing them with new windows. At ASAP Glass, we offer quality glazier services on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane.
Is It Time For A Window Replacement?
If you have noticed that your windows aren’t working like they used to, you may be tempted to do minor repairs to fix them. Although newly fitted windows should last for at least 20 years, if they are old or you don’t know when they were fitted, it may be more energy-efficient to replace them.
Our Window Replacement Process
At ASAP Glass, we offer outstanding window replacement services to suit every home, need and budget.
Before we start working on your windows, we’ll take the time to walk through your home to confirm which windows you’d like replaced. We’ll also confirm your choices with you to make sure you’re happy with the selection.
We take every step to protect your flooring and furniture from damage, and we’ll place drop cloths over the surrounding areas before we begin our replacement work.
Our professional installers will craft ropes for the sash weights and will set your window in place and level it, before nailing it into position.
Once the installation is completed, we’ll apply an exterior trim to offer advanced protection from the elements. It’s then time to test your windows to make sure they’re working properly before we clean the surrounding area.
Simply get in touch with ASAP Glass to learn more about our window replacement process, or to request a callout. Give us a call today on 1300 734 584 or submit an enquiry through our online contact form and one of our friendly staff members will be in touch as soon as possible.

Benefits Of Replacing Your Windows
Here are some reasons why you should think about replacing your windows:
1. Reduced heating bills
According to Energy.gov, drafty windows can cause your energy bill to be 10-25% higher than it should be. Replacing the windows in your home is, by far, the most cost-effective way to insulate your home. So, if the initial cost of replacement is worrying you, try and look at the bigger picture; you could be saving thousands of dollars in the long run.
2. Makes your home safer
The safety of you and your family should be at the top of your list when it comes to your home. However, old windows are much less safe than new ones. Replacement windows are a great way to make your home safer. New windows will ensure that all parts of your house are lockable, and double-glazed windows are more durable and more tricky to break into.
3. Boosts curb appeal
Accentuate your home’s exterior with updated windows. If your windows are broken, have cracked frames, or boast foggy panes, you’ll potentially deter interested buyers when it comes time to market your home for sale or rent. A window replacement can give your home a new lease on life and make it much more attractive to visitors and potential buyers.
4. Improves comfort
When you replace your windows, you’ll also improve energy efficiency. New windows will keep out draughty air, prevent cold or hot spots, and keep the temperature within your home at a comfortable constant. Most new replacement windows contain argon gas between their panes to deter heat transfer and prevent damaging ultraviolet rays from fading your carpet, furnishings and window coverings.
5. Reduces maintenance
With updated windows, you’ll spend less time cleaning and more time savouring the view. Built-in shades and blinds can also prevent the need for dusting and cleaning your window coverings. If you opt for tilt-in windows, you won’t need to use ladders to wash them and keep them looking their best. Further, a vinyl-framed window reduces the need to paint them, so you’ll end up saving money and time that you would otherwise have spent on this maintenance job.
Signs your windows need replacing
There are several things that can signify that it’s time to replace your windows, such as:
- Your windows are incredibly draughty
- There is noticeable damage, such as broken seals or cracked frames
- Your window is not functioning like it used to, e.g. it won’t lock or shut properly
- There is condensation on the inside of the windows
- Your energy bills are high

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I need to replace my windows?
With some glass windows, condensation can begin to appear when it shouldn’t, they let in a large draught, or they become damaged. In these cases, you should get your glass windows replaced. If you’ve had your windows for a long time and they are beginning to look murky, even when they are clean, then it might be time for new glass windows.
With double glazing windows, you can tell they need replacing if they are not keeping out noise adequately, they are difficult to open and close or furniture is fading in your building. Double glazing offers protection against UV rays, so you may benefit from glass window replacement if your windows are old.
Does it matter what size my windows are if I want them replaced?
The size of your windows shouldn’t be an issue for a reliable glass replacement company. At ASAP Glass, we will ensure we get the correct measurements and get you the appropriate glass to fit your home.
Is it cheaper to change the glass or the whole window?
If you have a damaged glass window, or it’s particularly draughty, then just window glass repair will suffice as opposed to the whole window. Having only the glass replaced will be more cost-effective and is likely to resolve any issues you have.
Can you fix my glass window if it’s broken?
If one or multiple windows are broken or smashed, at ASAP Glass, we can repair it for you. We offer emergency glass repairs to accommodate these kinds of instances so your life doesn’t have to be put on hold!
Can I repair my windows instead of having them replaced?
Depending on what is actually wrong with your glass windows, there are circumstances where you may be able to repair the window instead of having a full replacement. However, you will benefit more from a complete glass replacement for things like rot, condensation, or single panes. Some glass repairs may not last, especially if they are done by someone who is not a professional in the trade.
At ASAP Glass, we provide emergency glass repair service for Gold Coast & Brisbane residents so contact us if you need your glass windows repaired or replaced.
When is the best time to have windows replaced?
If your glass replacement requirements are an emergency, then as soon as possible! If not, then glass windows can be replaced all year round. High-quality glass window installation should help your home retain warmth and cut your heating bills. So, if you know you need new windows, it might be a good idea to get them installed before winter.
