Aesthetics, environment and costs are major factors in your decision making about commercial window replacement.

Your commercial window replacement must be suited to the physical enviroment. It must be able to withstand the forces of nature (heat, snow, ice, hurricanes etc). Additionally, commercial reality mandates that your choice must be supporting good environmental practices.

Tips for Hiring a good Window Replacement Contractor
1. Never hire someone who knocks at your door. While there may be one or two reputable window replacement contractors who go door to door, we do not know of any. Many are scammers who prey on the elderly or the ill-informed and frequently they rip them off
2. Always ask for two references of projects that they have performed in the last six months. Make a phone call and ask the following questions:
- What work was done?
- What did you like about the job? Get as much detail as possible
- What would you change about the job? - Note that it is reasonable for good contractors to have some constructive areas for improvement.
- Did you get a quote at the start and did the cost of the job change from the original quote?
- Is it OK to look at the work from the outside of the house? This way you get an idea of the quality of craftmenship in the work and it helps eliminate bogus references.
- Was it completed as agreed? Time, cost and any special instructions.
- Would you use the contractor again?
- What other advice would you give?
Most of us have heard about Energy Star windows and seen advertisements for them on TV from time to time. In fact, the Energy Star sticker can be seen on everything from windows to dishwashers, even an entire building can be tagged with the Energy Star label if it consumes 15% less energy! Luckily, windows are held to a higher standard and need to transmit 20-30% less heat when compared to standard windows. This helps to keep your home much warmer in the winter and much cooler in the summer! As consumers, we can also use the Energy Star logo on our windows as a good guide to their quality. To be much more efficient than other windows, Energy Star windows need to have better construction, including dual panes of glass sealed with a vacuum, have improved frame materials and utilize Low-E Glass that blocks heat from passing through the window.
One other benefit of having Energy Star windows in your home involves sun damage. People who want to maintain big and bright windows without the fear of that extra sun causing damage in their home will often choose windows with the Energy Star rating because this guarantees that the window uses Low-E glass. Low-E is a coating that manufacturers place on window panes to block out infrared radiation (heat), but also involves a degree of UV radiation protection that will protect your valuables from sun damage. Finally, if you like to plan ahead and save on future bills then make sure to use Energy Star appliances and windows because current energy prices are increasing without end. Having more efficient windows not only saves energy, but also keeps money in your pocket book. Many home owners are making the switch to Energy Star windows and without a doubt, using high-quality windows that lower your bills is always the best option.
