When Do You Need Storefront Window Replacements?, Rochester, New York

Storefront glass allows passers-by to view your merchandise, which can draw customers into your business and increase sales. Storefront windows also play a crucial role in insulating your commercial property and keeping it comfortable. Below, you’ll find a helpful guide on how to determine when it’s time to replace them.

4 Signs You Need New Storefront Windows

1. Condensation

When you notice condensation buildup between the panes of your storefront windows, this may be a sign that your windows are no longer properly sealed. This creates a foggy appearance that diminishes curb appeal and interferes with views of your merchandise, making customers less likely to want to walk in the door. Boost business by installing tightly sealed storefront glass that offers clear views of what you have to offer. 

2. Excessive Noise

3. Glass Damage

If you observe scratches or chips in your storefront windows, you should replace the glass before water starts to leak through the damaged areas. Excessive moisture causes mold to develop, which can present health risks to workers and patrons. If you notice water leaking into your business, schedule a glass replacement as soon as possible. 

4. Elevated Energy Bills

Unexplained spikes in your commercial utility bills may be the result of inefficient storefront windows. Invest in new windows that have argon gas fillings and low-E coatings that will prevent heat transfer and take some of the stress off your HVAC system, thus minimizing your energy expenses.
