Fireplace and Wood Stove Glass

Tempered glass is not suitable for high temperature applications, such as wood burning stoves.  Standard tempered glass expands when heated and shrinks when cooled.

Ceramic glass such as 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 Shelves

Glass shelves add elegance to any room or cabinetry. Specialized edgework gives the glass a great appearance and most often requires special ordering. Glass shelves are a great alternative to wooden shelving, providing enhanced beauty, light reflecting, versatility and extra storage space, while being low maintenance, yet strong and durable.

Glass shelves do not disappoint! And can fit into nearly any interior design because they are available in a variety of sizes, custom ordered to fit your needs.

Unlike traditional wooden shelves that darken up a space, glass shelves allow light to reflect from above and below, enhancing the natural beauty of what you choose to display on them. You can even get creative with lighting above or under the glass shelves to create a beautiful under-lighting effect that can “wow” at night time.

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 edge work 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 edge work requires a thick glass. A beveled edge cannot be applied to single-strength glass. A flat polish edge is just like it sounds, “flat”; however, a pencil polish edge is more rounded like a pencil. Both flat and pencil polishes are special order. However, in-house we can do a flat grind edge, which is a more frosted matte edge finish. Small edge work details can impact the overall desire and effect you are wanting to create in a space.

If you have a custom idea for your edge work, give us a call. There’s a good chance that we can do it for you.

Insulated Glass

An energy efficient home is a comfortable home! Making it either warmer or cooler; and will help in saving money on utilities, too. The type of glass material you choose is critical when it comes to energy efficiency!

Residential windows are generally referred to as either “single glazed” or “insulated,” dual panes. What’s the difference, you ask?

Single Glazed vs. Insulated Glass, the difference…
A single glazed window is constructed of a single pane of glass.  This means, this is the only barrier separating your home from the outside elements. A single glazed window can be up to 20-times less efficient than an insulated window when it comes to energy loss.

Insulated glass, or double glazed window, is constructed of two or more panes of glass, sealed with an insulated air spacer. Factory made insulated windows can be up to 100% more efficient than a single glazed equivalent.
Even if only one pane of glass is broken, the entire unit needs to be replaced because the seal has been broken.

UV protective coatings, LowE, is another option that prevents UV sun rays from penetrating through the glass, at a lower impact.

Even though the initial cost of insulated windows is higher than single glazed, insulated or double glazed windows will eventually pay for themselves by reducing energy costs, over time.

Wine Closet | Room

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.

What is a wine closet and/or wine room?
An above ground wine cellar is often called a wine room, while a small wine cellar (fewer than 500 bottles) is sometimes termed a wine closet.

Many homeowners are transforming unused space in their homes into a small wine room, or wine closet.  The picture in our gallery displays a wine closet, in which the homeowner created to beautifully display their wine as an extension of their entertaining space.

Modern wine rooms are designed to serve as an elegant display area, as well as a fully functioning wine storage space.  Sliding glass door, walled wine cellars; under the stairs; or corner wine nooks are all the rave!  Wine enthusiasts are becoming quite creative in designing ways to showcase “vino”; while enhancing natural and unused space in their homes.

Turn an ordinary room or unused space into an extraordinary wine closet or room. 

 

Table Tops

Table top glass is usually typically either 3/16″ or 1/4″  in thickness; but can be 3/8″ and even 1/2″, if desired. If manufactured in-house the edges are seamed or ground to remove all sharp edges.  However, flat polish; pencil polish; and bevelled edge work needs to be special ordered. We can also do a flat-grind edge in-house which is a matte finish.

One of the most expensive aspect to consider for any table top glass is the edge work. It can vary from a simple, inexpensive seamed edge to a more costly bevelled edge. Bevelled edges can be anywhere from 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ and depends on the thickness of glass.

If you have a standard rectangular shaped furniture top that you wish to protect with glass, simply measure the exact width and length, and depth. Glass is priced by square foot so to quote we will need the exact dimensions.

If your table has an irregular shape, it is best if you can bring it into our shop where we can measure for you and take the guesswork out of it, for a perfect fit. In some instances, a pattern must be drawn. Intricate tables with cut-outs or odd shapes will require a pattern.

Single Glazed Clear Glass

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

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.

For commercial or residential, a mirrored wall can enhance a room making it appear larger than it is.

Lighting, also, reflects off of the mirror for ambiance and elegance. Mirrors are an excellent choice for dance studios; gyms; personal weight rooms in your home; dining room areas, long and dark hallways, etc.

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.

Replacement of Failed Dual Panes

Dual pane replacement and/or insulated glass units is really a specialty that you should leave up to the professionals.

Insulated Glass Dual Pane

Not only is the exact size required, but usually the exact same thickness, overall, must be used for just the perfect fit!

Unfortunately, window manufacturers use a variety of thicknesses and components to make up the thickness and can vary from one manufacturer 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.
