Agreed. And, unless you are selling the house "as is", you will have to disclose the fix and may end up offering an allowance or having to have it fixed a year from now when the fix fails for the new buyer anyhow.
And frankly, disclosed problems lists make buyers suspect other things from my experience through the years.
Was born near and lived my early life in the twin cities. They will always be special to me but Chicago is my adopted home for a second time having lived all over including on both coasts. I will ask cousins who they use for glass repairs and get back to you if they have anything to share.
Otherwise look online, in the phone book I guess if you still have one, and ask around. Bars and restaurants go through windows on a regular basis for some unexplained reason? Ask the manager of a fave who they use. They will have an emergency glass company business card pinned to a bulletin board if nothing else.
What kind of window is it? Isn't there an Anderson or Pella factory near Stillwater or over the river in Hudson, WI?
Have you used a contractor or even a licensed handyman for things? Either should be able to replace a window for you.
