Replacing Windows in Schools and Offices: What to Consider

Choosing a new set of commercial windows for your school or office is something that needs careful consideration. You have to look beyond the aesthetics of the windows. With the help of a reputable window contractor like Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas/Fort Worth, selecting the best units for your needs is easy.

Replacing Windows in Schools and Offices: What to Consider

Here are some factors that you need to consider before making a choice:


The safety of the students or employees is of high importance. You want to make sure that breakage is highly unlikely, especially for rooms that face sports fields. You might want to check out shatter-proof windows to avoid dangerous glass shards in case the window is broken.

For windows that will be installed on the second floor, choose units with parts that can be opened to encourage airflow but are still safe enough to deter falls. Also, do not forget to consult with your contractor to make sure that you are getting replacement windows that meet the standards and codes in your area for emergency evacuations.

Energy Efficiency

You also have to think about the cooling and heating costs in the building. This will be a long-term expense, so you really need to consider all the details. With the right units, you can keep the rooms in the school or office comfortable no matter what the weather is like and at the same time keep your electricity bills low. Opt for Energy Star® replacement windows. Talk to your contractor about heat loss and gain for the windows you are considering.


While not as crucial as the other factors, you still want to choose windows that complement the overall design of the building. We offer a wide selection of design options, making it easy to find a window that perfectly suits your aesthetic requirements. If you are only replacing some of the windows and keeping the other existing ones, you might want to consider getting your new ones customized to match the old ones.
