Large Scale Window Projects

6/23/2016 4:35:31 PM

Buying new commercial windows is often a once-in-a-lifetime task, especially if you opt for quality windows from the start. If you have a large scale window project on your hands, the task of choosing the right windows and having them installed properly can feel overwhelming. Whether you’re completely overhauling the windows in an existing building or you’re working on a new construction project, follow this outline to help the process go smoothly.

Compare Your Options

You may start your project with a particular look in mind, but be sure to assess all your options to make sure you don’t miss the chance to install a superior option. Even if you end up sticking with your original idea, you’ll have greater peace of mind that you made the right choice by knowing about and deciding against all other options.

Choose High Quality Windows

High quality windows are designed to last many decades of exposure to extreme weather conditions. You want your new windows to have this characteristic – regardless of the project’s scale – so you don’t have to worry about repairing or replacing windows again anytime soon. It’s true that choosing higher quality windows may push your project’s budget higher, but the resulting energy savings, enhanced building appearance and longer product lifespan make this decision a no-brainer.

Search Locally

There’s no doubt you need to work with a knowledgeable, efficient window installer for your large scale project, so why not purchase your windows from the same company that installs them? This helps keep your purchase local, which simplifies the task and speeds up the process.

Weather Shield has qualified dealers all over the country. These dealers have quality commercial windows in stock and can order in the number of products you need to facilitate your large scale window project. Visit the showroom of a local dealer near you to get an idea of the types of windows you might want to install in your building.

Consider Operation Type

Depending on the nature of your large scale window project, it may or may not be appropriate to have operable windows. If your project involves many low-profile buildings in the same complex, you may want to choose windows that slide or swing open to allow for natural ventilation.

However, office buildings and skyscrapers almost always have picture windows installed. This means the window’s only functions are to let in natural light and allow for a view outside. For safety reasons, skyscraper windows don’t open.
