Window Replacement

With over 10 years of experience as a window company in Chicago, we’ve learned a lot of safety tips through the many window replacement jobs we’ve handled. To keep you safe and happy we’ve listed a few of them here for you:

  • Keep windows and doors locked when it is windy, even when you are at home.

  • Identify windows that are weak or broken and replace them early on.

  • If you live in a high crime rate area, then consider using laminated glass for extra security as these are more difficult for intruders to penetrate.

  • When opening a window for ventilation, open only those located above a child’s reach.

  • Keep furniture away from windows so that children cannot climb onto them and out of the window.

  • Choose windows that have limited open mechanisms to prevent falls from windows (however ensure they have quick release mechanisms that can be activated in case of an emergency).

  • Teach your family members how to safely use a window to escape in such emergencies as a fire.

Be safe!
