Frequently Asked Questions About Window and Mirror Installations


Why is a 50% deposit required?

Is there a standard size and/or thickness of insulated units for windows or patio doors?

There is no standard size and/or thickness for the insulated units of patio doors or windows. All units are made custom sized.


Do insulated units come with a warranty?

What is the average lead time for the production of an insulated unit?

Average lead time on production of insulated units is usually 7-10 business days, although if the glass is broken on the truck or when being made, it could be longer.


What is the lead time for install?

The lead time on install varies depending on the product, service, and time of year. During our busier seasons (Summer and Fall) lead time tends to be longer.


Why can’t Low-E coating on replacement insulated units be guaranteed to match current Low-E units you have?

Low-E cannot be guaranteed to match because different suppliers have different coatings, or coatings could be discontinued.
