DIY Window Replacement

It's not as hard as you might think it is to replace a window. Usually, I prefer to have an experienced glass company take care of it when I need a window replaced, but sometimes, they can't get to me as fast as I'd like, or I can't afford a new window right away. I keep a few inexpensive panes of glass and some supplies in my garage so that I can temporarily replace a window until I can get the glass company to my house to install a better one. This is definitely something that anyone could learn to do, so I decided to start a blog about it to try to teach others how to replace windows. Whether you're temporarily replacing a window or you want to do a permanent job, you can learn the basics here in this blog.

Why Window Film Is Good For Your Storefront

Audrey Owens

As a business owner, you are likely always looking for things you can do to offer your customers a comfortable environment and to protect your business from criminals and vandal. You may want to use window tint which can help with various problems that you face as a business owner. Here are just some of the reasons why window film can be a great addition to your windows.

Protect your interior and display items

If you have a storefront with display windows, then you want to make sure the things in your display windows don't get sun-bleached, especially if you keep the same displays in the windows for long periods of time. You can have window tint applied that still allows people walking by to be able to see the displays. However, the tint will cut down on a lot of the sun's rays that would otherwise cause the displays to become damaged. Also, the sun's rays can cause your flooring and walls to become lighter in certain areas as time goes on. With a protective tint, you won't have to worry about these things.

Protect your clients

If you have a business where your clients would prefer for people not being able to see them through the windows, then where are a couple of types of window tint that you can consider going with. You can have a reflective window tint applied to the windows that make the windows look like mirrors from the outside. Or, you can go with a dark film. There is even blackout tint if your clients are extremely concerned about being seen in your business. An example of this type of business could be an adult book store or a bail bonds company.

Protect your inventory and employees

Putting window tint on the windows can also help you to keep your inventory and employees safer. Before most criminals rob a place, they will spend some time watching it. They would look obvious walking around the inside repeatedly without purchasing anything, so most will keep an eye on what's going on from the outside. They will make mental notes of things like the time of day the employees tend to go in the back room for something, the time of day when there are generally little to no customers, the time of day they see the employees take the money to the drop box, etc. A film that restricts their ability to see through the window can put a wrench in their plans.
