Visibly old and leaky windows or doors are a telltale sign that it’s probably time for a glass replacement. Leaks can be caused by everything from worn parts to poor installation. Although leaks may seem like small issues, they can eventually cause noticeable damage to your building, including mold growth, wood rot, and foundation issues.
You should also consider glass replacement to help keep your business temperature-controlled throughout the year. Replacing single panes with double or triple panes can help reduce heat gain during the summer and heat loss during the winter. Cracked or broken glass can also cause problems. Even seemingly insignificant cracks can allow outside air into your building. A replacement can prevent energy waste, potentially lowering your energy bill.

When selecting or installing commercial glass for your business, there are several factors you should keep in mind. The first step is to choose a style that will be aesthetically appealing and will match well with the exterior of your building. Geometric and decorative options can add character and uniqueness, while square or rectangular shapes offer a more standard or classic appeal.
Next, you should decide on the frame material. Some of the common options include vinyl, wood, and aluminum. Wood frames are great insulators and are known to block out outside sounds. Vinyl windows are energy-efficient and low maintenance. Aluminum windows are durable, affordable, and have excellent thermal performance.
