Choosing the Right Windows for Your Business

Your windows perform several important roles for your business. They not only allow daylight and the warmth of the sun inside your building, but they are also a key element of the overall esthetics of your place of business. They are one of the main architectural features that draw the eyes and invite your customers inside.

Speaking of which, glass can also be a main element in the interior décor of your business, helping create a bright, open and classy working space. Whether you’re looking to spruce up the outside of your place of business with new windows, or update the interior, the glass replacement experts at Northstar Glass, in Toronto, have a few suggestions to help you make the right choices for your business.

Choosing between new windows or replacement glass

You could opt to replace your old windows without changing the frame or trim. In this case, you would have windows designed to go into the existing frame. The price is roughly the same as new windows, but the process is not as labour intensive which lowers the price somewhat. This is a good option if your frames are still in good shape, and you are pleased with their look. However, if you’re looking to make a more complete change in the esthetics of your business, going for new windows is the better option. With new windows, you can have the size and shape altered, and while this requires more work, it can also have a more drastic effect on the outside look of your business.

Types of glass

There is a wide variety of glass to choose from. You can choose between double- or triple-pane glass, or even quadruple-pane glass. You can also choose the overall shape of the panes, and the distance between them. Other considerations include Low Emissivity (Low-E) glass, which uses a special coating to reduce the flow of heat through the glass, helping you reduce your energy bills. You can also opt for impact resistant glass, which holds up very well even in extreme weather conditions, or tinted windows, which can help reduce the amount of UVs from sunlight.

Benefits of custom glass

Whether for your windows or the interior, custom glass gives you a lot of control over the esthetic feel of your business. The look of your place of business says a lot about you and your work. Having an environment that is welcoming, bright and unique can help make a great impression on a client. They can expect you to bring the same level of care and attention to their needs as you do your work environment. At Northstar Glass, we can help you make the right choices for your business, and help you stand out in a crowded field. Give us a call, and we’ll add a touch of glass to your business!
