YOUR LOCAL GLASS REPLACEMENT SPECIALISTS
Our pride in glass began several decades ago, back in 1962, shortly after the release of Ford’s Econoline van in 1961.
Considered to be “America’s Work Truck” roving the streets, a documented improvement over the already popular F-Series panel van, marketing for such a vehicle was a uniquely sought after venture, one that popular franchiser, Mobile Services Corporation, pursued heavily.
As part of 160 glass-replacement franchises launched nationwide and their fleets outfitted with the Ford Econoline, The Glassman began it's now 50+ year journey as an in-home glass replacement and repair provider. Today, The Glassman of Columbus continues to serve Central Ohio, and with much more to offer!

Why is there moisture on the interior of glass?Today's tighter, more energy efficient homes can increase indoor humidity. Older homes had random gaps, which allowed for the release of warm, moist air and the replacement of cool, drier air. Newer construction methods do not allow this natural air-to-air exchange, thus trapping any internally created humidity within the structure. Elevated humidity can cause condensation to form on cold surfaces. Sweaty, frosted or icy windows are all forms of condensation problems. Most people assume these situations indicate a problem with the window, but in fact, these are symptoms of excess humidity in the home. Condensation on your windows could be an indicator that other moisture problems could develop. Contact us for how we can help solve this unsightly problem.
What causes our window to leak?If you have determined that your window or door is actually leaking, the next step is to determine the location and cause of the leak. You may do this by wiping away any visible moisture from the interior of the window or door, and then determining the point of penetration. By identifying the breach, the product may be able to be repaired. If a repair isn't possible, the product may need to be replaced. In either case, The Glassman should be your first call for class repair or replacement.
Do I need Low-E windows?Windows with Low-emissivity glass, or Low-E, are coated with a microfilm to increase efficiency in hot, humid climates or in environments where direct heat is common. This thin coating of material assists in reflecting heat away from the sitting surface of a window, helping to insulate the window properly, and keep unwanted temperatures out while keeping desired temperatures in. This is the most cost effective way to increase energy efficiency around the home, office, building, or other environment in which glass stands as the seperator between opposite climates.
