The huge picture-window in front of a business, the glass storefront, is literally the face of that business. Not only does it proudly display the store’s logo painted on the glass, but it also displays the store’s featured merchandise for all the world to see. A glass storefront is a point of both attention and pride for the shop. Indeed, it is one of that store’s primary assets. So when it is cracked or even shattered, it is more than a minor inconvenience.
Most storefront windows come in fairly standard sizes. Any shop dealing in the replacement of Storefronts in Washington DC, as well as in other municipalities, carries such commercial glass in stock. These plates are delivered in a unit and simply installed in the existing storefront frame. Other storefronts require a custom cut depending upon the frame size. A well-equipped glass repair operation such as Beltway Auto & Plate Glass can handle any such job with no difficulty. Any type commercial glass can be provided, from a single curtain plate to double-pane insulated glass.
The professional glaziers who staff glass repair and replacement outlets have worked with the storefront, entryway, and curtain wall glass for years. They provide cut plywood board to fill in the frame temporarily until the replacement plate is delivered to the store. They do a thorough job clearing the frame of all remaining pieces of the old window and prepare it to receive the new glass. Once the replacement plate is installed, they add sealing caulk to weatherproof the frame, and the new pane is ready to be painted with the store logo if it had one.
Restoring Storefronts in Washington DC is both the business and pride of commercial glass repair and replacement shops. No job is too big or too small for the staff glaziers to handle. And they provide quick and professional service within three days at most of being called in, and within mere hours if it’s an emergency call, day or night. Once the glaziers finish the job, the storefront is as good as new. And with the pane set snugly into place, barring any future accidents, it will last for the lifetime of the building.
