Default Surplus Warehouse

Are all home builders surplus type stores pretty much the same? Their websites are as none of them display actual prices. Im wondering if I can purchase the bottom half of a window (the sliding part) so I guess Ill have to call around. Is there one yall prefer?

Unless you go to the Surplus and find one with the upper broken, yes.


You can call a glass company and see if they will replace the bottom glass only, but if it has double pane frame or other custom type they will just replace the entire window frame...

If you just need the glass, it's possible to make an "insert" that is what is inside of the frame. The frames are not standard, one company makes them different from another, and the sizes are not standard either. Replacing the whole unit is the only option if there is an issue with the window that isnt the glass. Windows are made to fit the hole, not the other way around.
