Quotes and Product
How do I go about getting an estimate or a quote? How quickly can I get a quote?
Generally we can give you a verbal quote over the phone before we send a technician out to your home, thus giving you a general idea of your cost. We would need to know product being repaired or replaced, as well approximate size. Once we have a field measure, we can usually have a firm proposal done and ready for you in 24 to 48 hours.
What is the difference between a glass shower door and a shower enclosure?
A glass shower door is the product used to finish your shower enclosure. The shower enclosure is the structure to which the shower door is then attached or added to.
Do you do custom shower doors?
Yes, we do custom shower doors. We do not do tile work or install shower pans. We can do a glass wall or a slider or swing door to custom fit your shower design.
Windows – New Install, Repair and Replacement
Can you repair my windows?
Yes we do window repair. We can replace the double pane unit with a new one that carries a lifetime warranty for the homeowner.
Please note: Both panes have to be replaced as unit comes sealed from the factory. Once the seal is broken moisture will get in between the panes.
Do you do inspections of windows for failed units for the sale of our home?
We can do a walk through and look at your windows, however failed units dry up during the day and there is no guarantee on any failed units we do not see during our walk through.
We are not inspectors and can not be held responsible for the inspection process. There is a fee involved in doing a walk through of your home. Call us for more details.
What caused condensation, moisture or mold on my window?
If moisture or condensation occurs between the glass, this is due to a seal failure. The only option is to replace the glass.
If moisture or mold occur on the inside of your window this is due to poor or lack of circulation in the room – a suggestion is to leave the door open or open your drapes or blinds.
