Glass Repair

The Answer for Glass & Window Repair in Toronto

When you have a broken window, you're facing a major issue, not to mention a long cleanup process. It compromises the security of your home or business, and it can allow nature and weather to invade your building, making your problems even worse. You certainly don't want to walk in to find a flock of birds making themselves at home or rain or snow everywhere! That being said, getting a fast, efficient window repair in Toronto is paramount for the safety, protection and comfort of your home or business.

The experts at Northstar Glass, located in Scarborough, have operated in the area since 2001 and are the people to call for window and glass repair in the Greater Toronto Area. We have the training and equipment required to provide the proper repairs. Installing windows and glass requires precise measurements and zero margins for error. One little mistake can affect the window's structure and its performance, which is why it's very important to leave this task for the professionals.


Many times windows don't need to be completely replaced even if they're compromised. In some instances, we can replace broken panes of glass without having to completely re-install a new window. We won't be able to tell until we examine the damage, however.

Types of Window Repairs We See

Here are a few of the most common scenarios for window repair in Toronto that we regularly see:

  • Cracked glass – Many times, windows don't need to be completely replaced even if they're compromised and contain cracked glass. In some instances, we can replace broken panes of glass without having to completely re-install a new window. We won't be able to tell until we examine the damage, however.
  • Leaks and moisture – One of the most common types of window repairs we see involves condensation on your windows, either on the inside or between your window panes. This can usually be fixed by sealing up the window. Allowing the moisture to continue to seep into your home or business can lead to mould and rotting over time.
  • Drafty windows – If you’ve noticed heavier drafts have been flowing through your home or business, this can result in energy loss over time, as you constantly turn up your heating in order to compensate. Sometimes this type of window repair only requires us to redo the caulking around your window, while other times, it may require a little bit more work.
  • Rotted window sills – If you have wooden window sills, they can swell and get stuck and even rot over time. Heavy winds and rains are the usual culprits. Sometimes all you have to do is replace the window sill and not the entire window in order to correct this problem.
  • Won’t open or stay open – Many times, we have customers with windows that either won’t open or won’t stay open. Sometimes there could be rust on the opening mechanisms that needs to be lubricated, while other times, you may need to replace the hardware completely.

If you aren't sure what windows are right for your building, we can help you make a decision depending on the look of your property, your budget and any other unique needs.

Types of Replacement Windows

There are many types of replacement windows on the market. From those designed for maximum safety in a commercial setting to those intended to serve as a focal point on your property, we have the replacement windows for you! We carry, install and repair the following types of windows:

  • Single Hung: Only the bottom opens and closes with this type of window.
  • Double Hung: Commonly found in all kinds of buildings, this window's top and bottom are operable.
  • Sliding: The window opens by sliding on a track. This window is ideal for window frames that are wider than they are high.
  • Awning: An awning window opens from the bottom and swings upward courtesy of a crank.
  • Casement: This window opens with a crank handle and swings out toward the exterior of your building. The pane is hinged on one side.
  • Hopper: A hopper window is primarily used in basements. It opens from the top and swings inward. 
  • Bow: The frame features three, four or five windows at 10-degree or 15-degree angles.
  • Bay: The frame features three windows at 25-degree or 45-degree angles.
  • Security: These windows contain glass that is more durable and designed for fire protection, noise insulation and anti-theft purposes. 
  • Custom: These windows are typically designed not to open and are only intended to let in more natural light.

If you aren't sure what windows are right for your building, we can help you make a decision depending on the look of your property, your budget and any other unique needs.
