Tell us about the products and services you offer.
We sell glass handrails, stairs, and new windows; and we adapt commercial window systems for new, modern, and contemporary homes. We also install beautiful mirrors and shower enclosures for your bathroom.
Is it true that glass can offer UV protection for your furniture?
Yes. Many of the Low-E products we offer eliminate 95 percent of the sun’s damaging UV rays. The glass protects against fading of furniture, drapes, flooring, and artwork.
When it comes to windows, how do you differ from a traditional window company?
We love to solve complicated design problems. For modern, contemporary, and transitional homes, we have a host of solutions to give you more glass and less framing.
How can replacing the glass in your windows increase your home’s energy efficiency?
It used to be that you had to have highly reflective or dark glass to gain energy efficiency. The new, spectrally selective, triple silver, Low-E glass types available today have solar heat-gain coefficients below 30 percent and maintain high levels of visible light transmittance. You can save 30 to 50 percent on your home’s electrical bill for less money than you might think. In many cases, you can keep your windows and just change out the glass.
