Much like their commercial counterparts, residential properties have their own challenges. For instance, the windows and frames are very different. Commercial windows are often safety glass, important as their windows get broken more often. However, they are also a great deal heavier than residential windows, where this is not a requirement. The frames of commercial windows are often a great deal heavier as well. They are designed to withstand an attempted break-in or accident. Residential windows are not designed with this in mind and this means that they are lighter than commercial windows. They are less likely to be kicked in after all.

Commercial windows are also designed to let more light into a property. This is important, as a certain amount of light is needed for employees to do their jobs. As well as this, the place needs to feel friendly and warm for potential customers and clients. Residential windows are more about privacy. Light is important, but the windows are usually a lot smaller. This is mainly because there is not as much room that is needing that light.

Something to keep in mind would be the energy efficiency of the smaller residential windows. One, they are smaller and better moulded to the building. That means less energy is likely to escape through this window than that much larger and poorer fitted commercial windows. Residential windows are also more likely to have been designed and be coloured than the much simpler and straightforward. They are not looking to be the most beautiful, but just the most efficient for what they are used for.
