Eye Candy for Your Storefront Your storefront is the first impression that a potential customer has so you want to make sure it catches the eye. The design that you decide on for the glass storefront may be one of the most important decisions you make. While you may need to consider safety with your design and style, remember that first impressions are important. Depending on where you live, you may need to consider glass that can handle freezing temperatures, tropical heat, noise, fire, or hurricane force winds. Other considerations might be energy efficiency and being green certified. There is also a variety of types of glass for you to choose from, however depending on your needs from the above list, not all of these may fit the bill. Types of glass for you to choose from are safety, frosted, plate, tinted, beveled, insulated, tempered, starphired, and sandblasted. Another aspect that you need to consider is the thickness of the glass. Here your contractor should be able to advise you. He should also be able to give you ideas on every aspect of this purchase. There may be reasons that you should choose plate glass instead of sandblasted, and your contractor will know this. He should be your go to guy for questions on why to choose one style glass over the other. Remember as you are making these decisions to think about what the customer passing your storefront glass will see. If you are a restaurant, it might be great for the man on the street to see people inside eating, so you might want to choose the plate glass. However if you are a lawyers office you may not want to have people look in so the frosted or tinted glass might be a better choice. The type of business you have may determine some of the choices you make. Take all of these things into consideration when deciding on the glass for your storefront. This is an expensive purchase, and one that you will have to look at for years, so you want to make sure that you will be happy with the decision you make and the customer will notice you when they go by.
