Advantages of a Building Wide Fenestration Replacement
The Strongest Building Envelope
When a building replaces all of its window and doors, it significantly increases its structural integrity. A building that has only partially replaced windows and doors is more susceptible to wind and water damage via unprotected points of entry such as original windows and doors that have met their life cycle.
Completely replacing all of your windows and doors with impact resistant window and door products will ensure a positive aesthetic upgrade. Your building will be architecturally consistent, and as such, will look great. A good looking building appreciates in value, instills pride in ownership, and creates demand.
Insurance and Energy Savings
A complete, new, impact window and door envelope will ensure that you receive the maximum insurance discounts available. Addition-ally, energy savings are maximized when the entire building’s glazing envelope has been replaced. Now you can ensure that building wide energy efficiency is maximized.
Building wide replacement of windows and doors will allow unit owners to enjoy significant savings based on volume discounts and one-time mobilization and staging costs.
