If you’re looking at replacing your home’s windows, you may be looking at energy-efficient windows. There are several benefits to choosing an energy-efficient model, such as one with double glazing, including the following:
Energy-efficient models go hand in hand with good frames. A good frame, like one constructed of vinyl, will work to insulate your home further, minimizing any heat transfer. Air leakage should be kept to a minimum, and any joints in the frame need to be sealed airtight to keep out moisture and cold air.
Both non-operable and operable windows can be energy efficient. Non-operable, or fixed, windows are more airtight, but since they cannot open, it would not be advisable to outfit your entire home with this type. When looking at operable windows, hinged products are preferable to sliding models, as the closure fixture keeps the window tight to the frame.
At Speedy, we offer a wide range of energy-efficient models to give you the choice of what best suits your need. Give your local branch a call and they’ll be able to answer any questions you may have. Estimates are always free.
When phoning in your windshield or auto glass claim make sure to request Speedy Glass. We are your environmentally preferred glass choice. We are unlike most glass companies, as we promote repair first before doing an automatic replacement. Most chip repairs take only about 20 minutes to perform and can be done in shop or at your place of convenience. We understand the desire to keep the original factory seal intact.
If we can’t repair the damage we can then proceed to replacement. Just like repair at Speedy Glass, we take pride in our replacements as well. We are members of the Auto Glass Safety council and part of a select group of companies chosen by insurers for best of class auto glass installations. We have been replacing auto glass for over 60 years, so we will be here when you need us.

When filing your claim make sure to request Speedy Glass for all your auto glass replacement needs. We are the environmentally friendly auto glass company. Unlike most auto glass companies, we promote repair first before replacement. A single windshield repair usually takes about 20 minutes and can be done in shop or at your place of convenience. Most of our windshield repairs are done at homes or offices thereby keeping your schedule free to do other things.
We recognize that the factory seal of your original windshield shouldn’t be altered unless required due to excessive damage.

- Over 60 years of windshield knowledge
- Our glass comes from tier one manufacturers who produce auto glass for Ford, Chrysler, GM and others.

When we replace auto glass, we only we only know the right way. We are not new to repair, as we have been doing it for over 60 years. Our number one goal is customer satisfaction and safety. Windshield replacements can vary on competitiveness from $150-$1000, but not all quotes are equal. When a windshield replacement price becomes less than an Apple iPod that’s your sign that the install you are getting is questionable at all levels.
No car leaves our care until we know that it’s safe to drive. That means we know the sealant has met the safe drive away time required to keep your windshield in place upon impact. We also make sure that all parts of the windshield get the same amount of sealant, ensuring no leaks or wind noise will happen after installation. This is one of the most frequent issues we hear and fix from customers who have gone with questionable companies to save a $20 bill.
When it comes to the type of materials used – glass, moldings, urethane, clips, electronics you are at the mercy of the glass company you choose. Unfortunately most of the materials in an installation will never be seen by your eyes, so you must rely on the glass company to provide you with all the right products. Unlike new or unknown companies, here today and gone tomorrow, we will not take the chance of using inferior products to make more money at your expense. We have too much pride in losing our status of being Portland’s Best Auto Glass Company.

Depending on the depth and length of the scratch most windshield repairs cannot be done correctly. If too much surface area of a windshield is removed the optics of the auto glass will become uneven and will result in eye strain for the driver or passenger. Buffing of auto glass isn’t a simple or quick solution and if too much heat buildup occurs the ending result is usually noticeable blemishes or even a stress crack on the windshield.
Most scratches occur on windshields when wipers blades become old or contaminated. The hardened rubber or small debris caught in the blades will quickly scratch any surface. The best way to prevent autoglass scratches are to change your vehicles wipers upon windshield replacement or to drop into your local Speedy Glass Dealer to get fitted with a new pair. All wiper blade sales come with free installation.

When the damage happens bring it to Speedy Glass and we will vacuum out all the glass with our specialized vacuums, and if we can’t get the side window delivered same day then we will seal up the hole with a clear Poly film.
