At Pro-Wide Glass in Seattle, we know how important it is to have clean and fully functional windows. Time, accidents, the weather, and many other factors can cause damage to your windows, glass doors, skylights, and more. In today’s post, we’re going to take a look at a few of the most common signs that it’s time to invest in glass repair or replacement. We’re going to start with commercial glass before turning our attention toward residential glass.

Signs You Need Commercial Glass Repair

As a business owner, you know how important it is to take pride in your business. You’ve invested in marketing strategies, graphic design for your logo and products, and anything else required to show your customers that you care about your image. Your windows are certainly no exception, and the following list contains a few of the most common signs that you should invest in your business’ appearance:

Visible Damage

Do your windows have chips, scratches, scuffs, cracks, or other signs of damage? Even if your property’s interior is pristine, your windows can make your business look run down and outdated before customers even walk through the doors. Moreover, visible damage could be causing your utility bills to rise and your company’s bottom line to suffer.

Minor cosmetic damage can be repaired, but windows with large chips and cracks will likely need to be replaced. Our technicians will provide you with a detailed overview of your options before performing any work.

Cleaning Issues

Do you find that it’s difficult to thoroughly clean the glass around your business? Maybe your windows have hard water spots that never seem to go away, or perhaps the glass doors in your entryway haven’t had a thorough cleaning in years and are now caked with grime. Whatever the case may be, glass replacement may be the most effective way to give your business a fresh — and clean — start. At Pro-Wide Glass, we carry top-of-the-line glass that is incredibly easy to clean and maintain, allowing you to provide your customers with a beautiful storefront every time they stop by.


Are you rebranding or renovating your business? Even if the glass around your business is in relatively good condition, it never hurts to invest a little more into your image. Maybe your storefront could use fresh new windows, or perhaps your office has glass conference rooms in which you regularly meet with clients. No matter what your circumstances are, we’re willing to bet that your business will benefit from our commercial glass replacement services!

Signs You Need Residential Glass Repair

As a homeowner, you’re always looking for ways to increase your home’s functionality while also raising its overall value. It turns out that investing in residential glass repair or replacement services is a great way to do both! Below are a few of the most common signs that it’s time to invest in new glass around your home:

Rising Utility Bills

As we briefly discussed in one of our previous sections, rising utility bills are one of the strongest indications that you should invest in window replacements. Your home’s windows could be allowing air to escape, which needlessly cuts into your paycheck and forces your HVAC system to work overtime. If you suspect that your windows are contributing to high heating and cooling costs, then just give the team at Pro-Wide Glass a call and we’ll be happy to provide you with a window replacement quote.

Noise Pollution

Do you live next to a busy street? Are you tired of hearing your neighbors’ conversations? Old and outdated windows don’t provide much in the way of acoustic insulation, but our state-of-the-art replacement windows do! Whether it’s your bedroom windows or your skylights and sliding glass door, we can provide you with high-quality replacements that reduce environmental noise pollution.

Fading Furniture

You know that too much UV exposure is bad for your skin, but did you know that it’s bad for your furniture, carpet, and artwork, too? Single-pane windows allow UV rays to pass through unimpeded, which can lead to carpet fading and damaged artwork. However, multi-pane and tinted replacement windows will keep harmful rays out and help you preserve your interior.
