Tempered glass is not suitable for high temperature applications.
Standard tempered glass expands when heated and shrinks when
Ceramic glass such as RobaxGlass®, PyroCeram Glass® and NeoCeram Glass ® have near zero thermal expansion which makes them very resistant to thermal shattering.
NeoCeram Glass® is not glass at all but is a heat resistant transparent ceramic that is used in high heat applications such as in wood stove glass, wood pellet stoves, coal burning applications, electric heaters, space heaters and high heat fireplaces where the heat source is close to the glass.
We offer both NeoCeram and PyroCeram ceramic glass.
Glass railing systems can be used in both exterior and interior applications such as balconies, terraces, porches, and staircases. Allow us to design your commercial or residential glass railing system.
Stylish, residential glass deck railing systems have a sleek contemporary appeal. They’ve gained popularity enclosing pool areas, spiral staircases, and balconies in homes.
Glass shelves add elegance to any room or cabinetry. Specialized edgework gives the glass a great appearance and most often requires special ordering.
Standard edgework is our standard finish and is included at no extra charge on all pieces. We call this the seamed edge. This is perfect for items that will be installed so that the edges of the glass will not be seen, these edges are sanded smooth so the glass is safe to handle but it is not necessarily decorative. Our standard edgework will follow industry standard tolerances. This can be done in-house and does not require special ordering.
It is not unusual for the cost of edgework to exceed the cost of the glass. Some edgework requires a thick glass. A beveled edge cannot be applied to single-strength glass.
Residential windows are generally referred to as either “single glazed” or “insulated,” dual panes.
An insulated glass unit is a sealed glass product consisting of two or three panes of glass separated by an air spacer.
Even if only one pane of glass is broken, the entire unit needs to be replaced because the seal has been broken.
Wine closets/rooms are housed within glass walls and will be a focal point of any entertaining space. We believe that people’s homes are the ultimate expression of who they are.
Modern wine rooms are designed to serve as an elegant display area, as well as a fully functioning wine storage space.
Turn an ordinary room into an extraordinary wine cellar.
Table top glass is usually typically either 3/16″ or 1/4″ thick; but can be 3/8″ if desired. The edges are seamed or ground to remove all sharp edges. This type of edgework ca be done in-house. However, polished edgework needs to be special ordered.
One of the most expensive aspect to consider for any table top glass is the edgework. It can vary from a simple, inexpensive seamed edge to a more costly beveled edge.
If you have a standard rectangular shaped furniture top that you wish to protect with glass, simply measure the exact width and length.
If your table has an irregular shape, it is best if you can bring it into our shop where we will make the exact measurements. Intricate tables with cut-outs or odd shapes will require a pattern.
Single glazed windows are typically the least expensive to repair; you have one layer of glass to replace compared to two or more layers in insulated glass products.
Relative to all other glazing options, single-glazed with clear glass allows the highest transfer of energy, (i.e. heat loss or heat gain depending on local climate conditions), while permitting the highest daylight transmission.
Single Glazed vs Double Glazed: What’s the Difference
A single glazed window is constructed using a single pane of glass. This means that the only thing separating your home from the outside environment, is that single pane of glass. Typical window glass ranges from 3mm to 10mm, which doesn’t provide adequate insulation.
A single glazed window can be up to 20 times less efficient than an insulated wall when it comes to energy loss or storage.
Double glazed windows utilize two separate pieces of glass, separated by an insulated air spacer . The air spacer acts as an insulative barrier. Hence, when the barrier or air space breaks the window will build up condensation and sweat. The window has then failed and the glass needs to be replaced.

Mirrors come in a variety of shapes, thickness, and color. Edgework of mirrors are typically ground flat and seamed to save money.
However, want more elegant or fancy edgework?
We can special order bevelled edgework. Bevelled edges can consist of 1/2″ bevel up to 1.5″ depending on customer’s desire. They add elegance and a look of luxury to bathrooms.
Metal j-molding is also available for the mirror to sit in, i.e. “channel”, and comes in a variety of colors.
Call the shop to inquire or better yet, come in and take a look for yourself. We are happy to help with your design and decor needs. We even have customer contractor’s who can build frames for mirrors, which we are happy to recommend.
Dual pane replacement and/or insulated glass units is really a specialty that you should leave up to the professionals.
Not only is the exact size required, but usually the exact same thickness, overall, must be used.
Unfortunately, window manufacturers use a variety of thicknesses and components to make up the thickness and can vary from one to another.
For instance, two insulated glass units may both be 1/2″ in total thickness but one may use single-strength for both panes while the other may use double-strength for both panes. The technical differences between the two types are minor in both appearance and costs.
Failed means the window has “fogged up” on the inside and the seal around the edges is broken which allows moisture inside the unit, and builds up condensation. The entire glass, insulated unit, then needs to be replaced.
