Basement Refinishing 101

When it comes to expanding your home living space, one of the most effective ways to do it is to finish the basement. You can turn a full basement into an entire floor of extra living space. You may even be able to create bedrooms, install a kitchen, and add a bathroom. I created this site to share my experiences with basement renovations and construction. My hope is that sharing what I have learned will help others to see that it's easier than you think to finish the basement and create the space you have always envisioned in your home.

3 Ways Your Business Could Benefit From New Glass Windows

Regardless of whether you own a retail store, a large warehouse, or both, keeping your company in top notch condition is of course of the utmost importance to you as a business owner. To that end, if your company's commercial windows have seen better days, it might be time for some professional help. Here are three benefits your company could receive from hiring a contractor who specializes in glass installation jobs.

Save Money on Energy

Do you notice a draft any time you go towards the front of the store or any other area where you have a large window installed? It's natural for at least some cold air to congregate around this spot in the winter, especially if the door to your building is repeatedly opened and closed as clients or customers walk in. But if it's clear you're getting more of a draft than you should be, it's likely because your windows are not in top shape. A new glass installation can correct this problem. By keeping the cool air outside where it belongs, your commercial HVAC system will not have to work as hard, and you will save money as a result.

Create a Better Atmosphere

If your current windows are smudged or simply not very big, you might not be getting much light into your building. When you do a new glass installation, you can talk to the contractor about installing windows that are significantly larger than what you currently have. Upgrading the amount of outdoor lights that comes into your building can change the entire mood of your building. Sunshine tends to raise the spirits a bit, and it's likely your employees will appreciate the better view.

Increase Interest in Your Store

Another group of people who could be interested in that better view are potential customers who are outside of your store. If your storefront's windows currently leave a bit to be desired, it might be difficult for you to bring in people off the street who are trying to window shop as they go by. Installing large windows that allow people outside the building to see clearly will allow you to show off your wares with ease and potentially generate a lot of new business if there is a high amount of foot traffic in the area.
