If you’re thinking of replacing the windows in your commercial establishment, read on. As a successful North Georgia window replacement company, we’ve compiled a short list of pointers that will guide you in making the right decision for your business.
How Many Windows Need To Be Replaced?
You can bring down the cost of window replacement for your business if you replace only those windows that absolutely need to be replaced for safety or aesthetic reasons. After all, you want your place of business to be inviting. Broken windows or windows with missing panes send the wrong signals to potential customers. Keep in mind, however, that some window companies will give you a sizable discount for bulk orders.
What Window Style Best Suits Your Business?
There are many different types of replacement windows from which you can choose. Most home window styles (awning windows, casements, sliding and double-hung windows) can be installed in commercial establishments as well.
Study the attributes of each window type to see if they are compatible with the kind of activity that is involved in running your business. No matter what type of window style you choose, opt for energy-efficient replacement windows. They are better for the environment and will save your business money in the long run.
Choose the Right Window Frame
Wood frames are very attractive and will definitely give your business an aura of class and sophistication. But they are also expensive and require careful maintenance. Vinyl window frames are inexpensive but do not offer the same appeal as wood. Although they do not need to be painted or stained, they come in a limited range of colors. Fiberglass window frames are easy to install, good thermal insulators and are also water-resistant.
Do Your Homework
You will likely save money if you read up on the different commercial window options available on the market today and make your choice based on your research rather than letting your contractor make the decision for you. However, if you trust your contractor and he or she is willing to present the pros and cons of each window type and then let you make up your own mind, their professional opinion should be as good as a recommendation.
Ask about special discounts for the type of business you’re engaged in, if you’re a veteran or a member of a minority group, etc. If you’re installing environmentally friendly windows, you may be entitled to a rebate from the government.
