Common Problems With Commercial Windows That Require Prompt Repair

Isaiah Brewer

When you own a business, it is important to keep your storefront or office in good shape. Commercial windows tend to be large in size, and some businesses have numerous windows, so if there are any issues then it is essential to have repairs made promptly. If your business has windows that need to be repaired, make sure that you hire a glass company that is experienced in commercial window repair. Commercial windows are usually quite a bit different than traditional residential windows, so you want the person repairing your windows to know how to properly work on commercial windows. Some of the top reasons that commercial windows need to be repaired include:

Shattered Glass

Unfortunately, accidents happen and so does vandalism or attempted break-ins. Any of these things can lead to a window being shattered, which can cause a massive headache for a business owner. If your business ever experiences a shattered window, it will need to be repaired right away. Some glass companies that specialize in commercial window repair offer around the clock service as well as appointments on the weekends, so if you have a shattered window, give a few companies a call and have the issue fixed as quickly as possible.

Visible Cracks

While commercial windows are durable and designed to last for a long time, they can develop issues as they age or due to stress from outside elements. A common issue with commercial windows is visible cracks in the glass. Ideally, you should arrange to have your window repaired as soon as you see a crack, no matter how small it may be. If you ignore small cracks in your commercial windows, the cracks will continue to grow larger. It is much easier to deal with small cracks in a timely manner instead of waiting for further damage to occur. 

Build-Up of Condensation

It is not uncommon for commercial windows to be double-paned, which makes them stronger and more energy efficient. However, double-paned commercial windows have a small internal gap between the two panes of glass, and it is possible for condensation to build up in this area, making the windows cloudy. In most cases, condensation in windows is caused by a faulty seal that needs to be replaced. If you have condensation in your commercial windows, contact a commercial window repair service in your area to have the problem fixed by having new seals installed.

Learning About Historical Window Replacement and Materials

Hello, my name is Valencia. Welcome to my website about windows. I want to share information about sourcing period-specific windows for your historical home. In many locations, historical societies will only issue renovation permits once the homeowner proves the materials are accurate to the build date of that structure. The windows must look and function exactly as they would new in that historical time period. My site will contain information about ordering, installing and maintaining these windows. I hope you will use the information on my site to keep your historical home in great shape through the decades. Thanks for visiting.
