Ensuring your windows are in top shape, installed well, and protected from damage is one of the best things you can do to manage maintenance and energy costs in your commercial buildings. 

Windows go a long way to making a good aesthetic impression and saving your business money.

What to Know About Commercial Window Repairs and Replacement

First impressions are essential. But as business owners, we sometimes forget that first impressions can be made before customers even walk into our buildings.

Faded, weathered or cracked glass on your company’s building does not send a great message to your customers. You want your building to reflect that you take pride in what you do and pay attention to the details. That’s where Kryger can help. Our glass services extend beyond just auto and residential glass and into business glass services like:

Being Energy Efficient

The best way to be energy efficient at your business is to install insulated commercial windows. Insulated windows allow you to keep your temperature right where you want it without energy being lost out of your windows. The purpose of a thermal insulated window is to keep your company’s temperature regulated and to save you money on energy bills. The basic definition of a thermal insulated window we use here at Kryger Glass is two panes of glass with a special seal between them to keep the moisture out. These windows are more energy-efficient and are designed to keep cold air out during the winter and hot air out during the summer. Don’t let your old windows steal your next paycheck!

Time to Replace Your Windows Today!

If you have old windows that aren’t giving off a great first impression of your business, or if you just want to switch to insulated windows, we are here for you. At Kryger Glass, we have all your glass needs covered! In most cases, we can replace just the glass unit without having to replace the entire window. Whether your frame is made of wood, metal, or vinyl, we can work with whatever you have to make sure your new insulated window will do its job and do it well.

To get the process started, we need to assess what kind of window you currently have. The easiest way to do this is to bring your window unit into our shop to see what materials we’re working with. Most units are easy to remove on your own. Here’s a look at how to remove some of the standard windows:

Double-Hung Windows: These are the most typical type of windows and slide up and down. Most of them have release levers next to the frame. Push those towards the center lock, and pull the top of the window sash towards you. Carefully remove it one side at a time so the springs holding it in place can release it on both sides.

Slider Windows: These can usually be taken out by lifting on the sash and swinging the bottom towards you. In some cases, you may have to remove the trim around it first.

Casement Windows: A crank is used to open these windows and it swings outward as it opens. You can typically remove these by lifting the sash and swinging the bottom out.

Before attempting to remove your insulated units, make sure you are wearing thick gloves and check for any pieces of glass that may have been left behind if your window was broken. 

If you don’t feel comfortable and it’s not safe to bring in the window, contact us on our website. We can have a certified professional walk through the whole process with you step by step.
