"It starts with knowledge..." is more than a motto to us- it's how we do business. Our first goal is to share some of what we have learned about our trade with you.
Glazing is the process of installing glass into your window or door.
There are two main methods of applying sealant to the glass in your window- wet and dry glazing. In wet glazing, silicone is fed into a grooved pocket machined around the glass. Wet glazing is generally preferred for coastal or rainy locations, where moisture infiltrating the window and condensing is more of a problem. Dry glazing involves using rubber gasket material that is applied in a similar machined pocket, with additional grooves machined to aid in the installation and fit of the gasket. It's more suited to dry, non-coastal areas.
There's no firm answer to the question of which method is 'better'- both techniques have their devotees. Regardless of which you use, the important part is in the quality of the application and the precise fit of the glazing, rather than the technique.
To research which method is right for you, it's always best to talk to a specialist, such as CRL.
