We’ll also ensure that your project is completed in a timely manner without causing too much disruption to your business, customers, or tenants.
Short Estimate Form
While commercial window replacement may not be one of your top priorities, it’s worth considering because of the benefits. With improved energy efficiency, new windows can enhance tenant and employee comfort, decrease operating costs, and increase property values. Even with the initial replacement cost, installing new commercial windows is cheaper than keeping your old windows. You’ll save on the cost of maintenance and the heat loss and gain that occurs with aging windows. At Emmons, we only work with high-quality products and materials to ensure that you reap all of these benefits.
Commercial Window Materials
When it comes to commercial window replacement, there are a few different frame materials to choose from. Emmons primarily installs aluminum, vinyl, and wood window frames. One of these might be better than the others for your property because of the climate in your location and the structure of your building. While one of our commercial window contractors can recommend the optimal frame material for your property, it’s helpful to know a little bit about each.
With great durability and strength, aluminum windows are ideal for replacing unconventionally sized windows because the material can be molded to fit. They can be painted any color, require little maintenance and effectively block outside noise. They also resist breaks, cracks and dents and have a long life span. However, they could be less energy efficient than other window frames.
If energy is a deciding factor for your commercial window replacement project, vinyl windows are an excellent solution. These hollow frames can be filled with insulation, which increases their energy efficiency. These are the most common windows found in residential construction. On the downside, vinyl isn’t as durable as aluminum and they are resistant to paint.
In general, wood frames are energy efficient, and many historic buildings use them because they have a long life span. However, wood expands and contracts with changes in temperature, which makes them susceptible to cracking and rotting. For these reasons, wood window frames require regular maintenance, much more than vinyl and aluminum windows need.

There are nearly an endless number of commercial window types. From awning, casement, and dormer windows to gable, sash, and ventilator windows, the possibilities for your commercial window replacement are broad.

Commercial Window Replacement Cost Factors
Window style, frame material, and installation are a few factors which will affect how much your commercial window replacement project will cost. At Emmons, we want you to be fully prepared for the impact of each factor so that you can fit your project into your budget. Although we’ve provided an overview of them below, don’t hesitate to ask us for details about how your window choices affect your overall cost.
Nearly all new commercial windows have two panes of glass and an insulating layer of either air or gas in between. Air-filled windows are slightly cheaper than argon-filled windows, but they don’t insulate as well. Krypton-filled windows are an option that offers better insulation but costs more than argon-filled windows. Getting a tint or low-e coating will raise the price as well.
The material that you choose for your frame and any special coatings or finishes are major factors in the cost of your commercial window replacement project. For example, an acrylic finish on aluminum frames is cost effective, but the color fades or bleeds rather quickly. Choosing a polyvinylidene fluoride, fluorocarbon or Kynar finish instead is more expensive but will last longer.
How your new commercial windows are installed can have a big impact on the cost of your project. You’ll save money if you can recover the existing window frames and only replace the glass panes and fixtures on your windows. If the existing frames are damaged beyond reuse, we may have to replace them and the sashes too, which is the most expensive scenario.
