There are many different factors to consider when choosing a contractor for Commercial Window Replacement.
The first is the type of window to be installed. The type of installation will depend on the type of window. If the frames are in bad shape, a complete tear-out will be required. This requires completely removing the window, sash, and hardware. Alternatively, a partial tear-out will allow the facility manager to keep the existing frame and replace only the operable portion of the window. Other factors to consider are the quality of the window glass. In some cases, facilities managers can install solar control film on the existing window glass, which reduces the amount of UV rays and light that passes through the window.
The cost of Commercial Window Replacement is also affected by the type of material that is used to construct the window frame. For example, single-pane windows are very low-cost and do not require much maintenance. Triple-pane windows can help reduce heat gain and keep a room cool. Double-pane and triple-pane windows are more expensive, but are the best option when it comes to energy efficiency. The frames should also be made of fiberglass or aluminum, which are both energy-efficient. The cost of replacement windows can be offset by the use of the Energy Star (r) label.
