How to Get a Glass Replacement for a Broken Window
Are you worried that your commercial building may be in need of a glass replacement?
Every year, millions of commercial windows are damaged or broken for various reasons. It is up to you as the business owner to take care of any glass issues you may face.
In this quick guide, we will take you through the process of replacing your commercial glass.
Commercial vs. Residential Glass Replacement
It is important to understand that the process of replacing a commercial glass window is different than replacing a residential one.
Commercial windows are generally thicker than residential windows. These windows need to be thicker, especially in higher-rise buildings where they are exposed to harsher conditions.
Because of this thickness, the materials used when replacing commercial windows are often different. Many commercial window replacement companies prefer to use frames made of aluminum to support the thicker windows.
The cost of replacing a glass window will vary from building to building, but because of their difference in thickness and material, commercial glass is often more expensive to replace. It is important to make sure you have the financial means to take care of your window replacement.
Signs You Need a Commercial Glass Replacement
Some signs of a commercial window in need of replacing are more obvious than others. Here are just a few reasons why you may want to replace your windows.
- Moisture buildup

All of these signs are indicators that it’s time to invest in replacement glass. For a more in-depth explanation of why it’s so important to replace your glass when it is damaged or broken, check out our recent blog post on the subject.
How to Start the Glass Replacement Process
The first step to window glass replacement is finding a reliable and professional company to handle your needs. If you hire a company that does a poor job, you’ll have a bigger problem than you started with. Ask friends and family for recommendations and do your own research to find a company that will provide you with excellent service.
After you have chosen a company, you’ll likely have to put in a service request. This will give the company an idea of what the problem is and how they can best fix it.
Once the company has followed up on your service request, then they can come out for an initial consultation to discuss pricing and timing. Soon after, they can then gather all of the materials they need and get to work repairing your windows.
