Most operable windows have enough play in tham that the house would likely be flalling down or have other bigger issues to complain about before the glass would be breaking. I did mention early on about fixed units and nails nicking glass that might cause structural stress...

Piffin:

Sorry to be so long in answering your response, but weekends are busy..

The company who manufactured the windows was Canadian Thermo Window Industries of Weston, Ontario Canada.

Upon reading the number of responses that have been posted on the other site, my husband tends to agree with the reponses regarding gases that have been put between thermo windows, as there are small chips in the broken edges of the pane of glass (still in the frame) which would give the indication that the windows would have bulged toward the inside of the house before exploding.

Appreciate the interest and the responses of your members..

Small chips may be an indication that edges of the glass were damaged during mfgr and thermal glass is nick sensitve..

not sure if I am making myself clear... I am talking about the area (the center of the window itself)that has been blown out. ... not the edges of the window glass per sa...
