Signs Your Commercial Windows Need Replacement

If you are renovating your building, one of the areas to consider updating is the windows. Over time, windows, like all building materials, wear out and need to be replaced. The signs that your windows have lived their useful life can be subtle. Following are some of the key indicators that it’s time to replace your building’s windows:

  • The most obvious sign that your windows need to be replaced is visible damage, such as cracks in the glass, damage to the frames, or water damage. The latter can appear as peeling or bubbling paint on the window frame or near the window, mold spots, or wood that feels soft.
  • Does condensation appear within the glass panes on your windows? If so, the seal on your window is no longer functioning, allowing moisture in-between the glass panes.
  • Can you feel a breeze when you are near a window? This is another indication that the seal is worn out and allowing the hot air from outside inside your air-conditioned building.
  • Can you clearly hear outside sounds while inside the building? When your windows’ seals wear out, their soundproofing abilities drop precipitously.

Installing new commercial windows can provide numerous benefits:

  • Keeps your tenants happy with your building upkeep and maintenance, reducing turnover.
  • Keeps your tenants’ employees and clients happy by reducing the amount of annoying and distracting outside noises entering the building.
  • Reduces your monthly HVAC bills. An article from the National Glass Association reported that “HVAC systems account for about 40 percent of total energy use in commercial buildings,” so minimizing the air leaks from your windows can reduce your electricity costs[1].
  • Increases your property value and attractiveness to potential new tenants, helping to justify higher rent prices.

Hurricane impact commercial windows offer even more advantages. These top-of-the-line windows eliminate the need for hurricane shutters; they can withstand the powerful forces a Category 5 storm unleashes. On top of this, they offer unbeatable soundproofing qualities and a high level of security even when the skies are clear.
