All About Commercial Windows
First impressions are everything! You want people to come into your business and not be swept by drafts from deteriorating commercial windows in the lobby or waiting area. You want the temperature in your buildings or offices to be consistent from one area to another. If you have furniture by windows, especially furniture you’ve invested money in, it would be nice to avoid sun fading and damage to the upholstery right? Upgrading to energy efficient commercial windows will save your business money as well!
Check your windows for the following:
- If you hear noise when the windows are opened or closed such as grinding, gritty or crunching sounds.
- Is it hard to open and close them? Windows should slide open and shut easily and nearly noiselessly.
- Look for chips or places where the window pane may be coming loose from the frame itself, be sure to look at the corners for any signs of separating.
- Check the frames from outside to see if they are detaching from the building. This can happen as buildings age and shift. Unfortunately this often goes unnoticed by the business owner until it’s too late and damage has been done.
- Is it difficult to operate the locks? If so, you will want to upgrade and replace your windows for security and safety concerns.
- Feel for drafts or places where there is condensation on the glass.
- Look for peeling paint if you have wooden frames. This can occur with the extreme temperature changes we experience in Las Vegas. Buildings going through the expansion and contraction of extreme temperature changes can loosen windows and create damaging situations all the while increasing your cooling bill!
