Its more difficult to fix a blown unit than replace it. They are sealed together, filled with argon gas and hermetically sealed

They are easy to replace, should cost about £25 m2 plain K glass.

Been doing this about 25yrs.

Yes its possible to provide a service replacing blown units. I used to be a window fitter and as long as you know how to measure up without taking out the blown unit , its a piece of doddle :thumbsup:

You also have to know how to line up the lead work, know the width of the spacer bar (the gap between the pieces of glass), to put the beading back in the right order etc etc

Lol.yeh, even experienced window fitters (me included) have done that. Getting the vertical beading (the plastic or alley strips that hold the glass in) can be a pig. Its a case of gentle taps with a rubber mallet

I just peel the beading back and wack a new bit of glass in. Cowboy builders inc.

 

Oddly, some older upvc frames allow the beading to be removed from the outside. You can be in pretty quick like.
