Basic Considerations for Business Owners About Commercial Replacement Windows | Suburban Glass | Scoop.it

As an Indianapolis business owner, if the windows in your company building no longer serve their primary purpose of providing a shield against the elements, saving on energy bills and enhancing the overall façade of the office, then it’s definitely time to call for a replacement. However, to ensure that you get your money’s worth and there is no confusion, it is imperative that you understand what replacement windows fully entail.


Having a clear understanding of these important facts will help you arrive at an informed conclusion regarding windows, and whether or not they need replacing.

Indianapolis Windows Must Be Given Attention for Building Security

Indianapolis Windows Must Be Given Attention for Building Security | Suburban Glass | Scoop.it

WTHR Channel 13 reports that the Indianapolis Metro Police are investigating a break-in at the Indiana Blood Center, which they found ransacked with a computer equipment missing, apparently taken by the intruders. So far, the IMPD has determined that someone broke a window glass by throwing a brick through it.  A stronger safety glass, used in doors, such as tempered or laminated cannot be broken as easily as standard window glass.  If the business or residence is susceptible to break-ins, then glass can be replaced in the windows that will make it much harder to break.  They have recovered blood and print evidence from the crime scene. The blood center stated that neither employee nor donor information was taken, or was ever accessible.

Fortifying Patio Doors in Indianapolis Structurally and Tactically | Suburban Glass | Scoop.it
Glass companies like Suburban Glass can replace your door with a sturdier one. Remember, however, that stronger glass alone won’t deter intruders.

Intruders also take advantage of broken hinges and other faults. Make sure your door is working as intended; otherwise, be sure to schedule an appointment with Suburban Glass Service, an Indianapolis door repair expert.

Things to Consider in Window Glass Repair After a Break-in Incident

Things to Consider in Window Glass Repair After a Break-in Incident | Suburban Glass | Scoop.it

Stores always face the threat of being broken into and robbed, especially those with glass storefronts and windows that are easy to penetrate. When some unguided youngsters suddenly decide to go on a window-breaking spree—for some reason—your store could be an easy target. Some businesses in the city have been raided in past months, for instance, with gun or liquor stores among the favored ones.


In a similar incident in Belltown, WA, vandals also hit a grocery store, a seafood restaurant, and an adventure store during a rampage. According to an article in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the restaurant had its large and medium windows damaged, while the adventure store lost two very large windows. Luckily for the grocery store, only a door window was hit.

The Importance of Indianapolis Window Glass Repair in Protecting Homes

The Importance of Indianapolis Window Glass Repair in Protecting Homes | Suburban Glass | Scoop.it
It’s stinkbug season in Indianapolis, according to a report by WCNC. Peter Jentsch, an entomologist from Cornell University, says that these insects start being active in March and April—but their objective is to find a way out of your house. They’ll try to come back inside starting September to shield themselves from winter. Jentsch states that stinkbugs are more of a nuisance than a threat. They won’t eat your things and they don’t bite. The annoyance comes from their defense mechanism. When threatened, they secrete a substance that tastes and smells foul, hence their name. You may simply leave the bugs alone, and let them complete their journey out of your house. However, if you have kids or pets in the house, it’s only a matter of time before you get a whiff of the stink.
