When challenges arise due to deterioration of the glazing system, it is important to understand what your options are. You want to be mindful of the original design intent, restore performance and extend the life of the system. This may include a variety of approaches—ranging from wet sealing the existing assembly to extruded silicone overlays to complete removal and replacement of the existing glazing system—but all built around developing a comprehensive restoration solution.
