As a builder or contractor, you know more than the average person does about all of the various building materials available during the building or renovation process. Many of these materials are designed with both aesthetics and safety in mind, including tempered glass. Tempered glass is required in many parts of a home and encouraged in other parts. When talking to your clients about the various glass features they want to add to their home, it’s important to talk to them about why tempered glass is so important.
One reason tempered glass is such an important building material is its increased safety. Unlike regular glass, tempered glass is designed with increased durability in mind, making it ideal for use around the home, especially in high-use areas such as the bathroom. It’s also a good idea to mention to your clients the increased efficiency of tempered glass over standard glass. Tempered glass is much more resistant to high temperatures, so summer heat will have a harder time penetrating your clients’ homes. This will allow your clients to use their air conditioning units less often and lower their utility bills.
Helping your clients understand the importance of tempered glass and other durable, high-quality materials will lead to a successful home build or renovation. You should never underestimate the power of using this material around the home. Tempered glass is just one of the building materials we provide builders and contractors here at Residential Building Specialties, Inc., so come talk to us today about how we can help you incorporate tempered glass into your next project.
