To maintain an image of professionalism and cleanliness in your commercial building, you need to keep a small business. If your storefront is old, you will not maintain that image. Here are six reasons you should invest in a new glass storefront if your commercial building hasn’t been updated in at least a decade.
- Ensure merchandise displays are secure
Your business relies on merchandise sales, so you should utilize the entire space you have. If you do not update your storefront windows, you will be losing prime display space. The aging process of glass also causes it to lose its strength and durability, creating an ideal setting for theft. We can design tempered glass storefronts to secure your merchandise with the best protection, even in the front windows.
- Enhance the curb appeal of commercial properties
Having an old, outdated glass storefront reduces the curb appeal of your commercial property. Adding new glass to your commercial property will make it more appealing to motorists passing by. In addition, you will need more advertising space to use digital signs and graphics with a new glass storefront, which will enhance your facade.
- Reduce energy consumption
Your commercial building is not as energy efficient as it could be if it has old glass. Old glass may allow more excellent energy absorption and loss than contemporary glass, forcing you to spend more on heating and cooling. Most commercial buildings lose energy through their windows, so installing tempered and tinted storefronts will make your building more energy-efficient.
- Make natural light more accessible
A new glass storefront can improve the lighting in your commercial building. You will receive more natural light by installing new windows without additional lighting fixtures or raising your utility bills.
Furthermore, greater exposure to natural light could help reduce health issues. For example, lack of sunlight can lead to tiredness and depression because the body produces less serotonin. By replacing your old storefront with a glass one, you’ll receive more natural light into your office, which will reduce resulting health issues.
- Reduce time and cost of maintenance
Keeping your old and outdated glass in good shape will require more time. In addition, old glass is more difficult to maintain. If your business’s glass becomes dirty, you could suffer disastrous results. With a modern glass storefront, you will be able to keep your windows cleaner for longer periods and reduce maintenance costs. Invest in monthly maintenance of your storefront to maintain its beauty.
- Make Your Commercial Building More Valuable
Make your commercial property more appealing, whether you want to sell your property or need to find new tenants. You will enjoy increased property value with your new glass storefront and attract more potential tenants and buyers.
