What does the glass replacement process look like?


We take pride in making the glass replacement process quick, simple, and affordable. We will first conduct an inspection on your property to see the existing glass, dimensions, and information for the installation. Then, we’ll price out the glass for you. After agreeing on the price, we will get to work manufacturing the glass to meet your deadline. Once the glass is ready, we will schedule the installation date with you. We remove the existing glass and install the new glass. Sometimes, we may need to cut sills or drywall. We apply insulation and replace any rotted components. After installation, we correct and reapply any flashing, trim, or other aspects to put them back into place, finishing the job.

How can I tell if my siding is damaged?


Look for peeling, cracks, warping, mildew, mold, and holes. Record everything you see by taking photos or videos. If you see any of these issues, contact our team. We will send out a professional contractor to conduct an in-depth inspection of your property’s siding. That way, you know exactly how to move forward with a professional opinion. Sometimes, your siding needs a quick repair, while other times, it may require a full replacement.

What time of year is best to replace the Commercial Door?


We always recommend replacing your commercial doors in the fall or spring where business is lighter and the weather isn’t as brutal. Jacksonville summers can be hot, and this can cause issues for you, depending on your operations. We can alter your schedule depending on your needs.

How often should I replace the Storefront Door?


How long you can go between new storefront door installations depends heavily on a few factors, these include:


•       Quality of door installed

•       Frequency of traffic for the door

•       Climate

•       Maintenance

•       Type of industry


If you start to notice damages or signs of wear, it's never a bad idea to schedule an appointment with us. We can give you a closer idea of what you're working with after an inspection. From there, we can talk about new storefront door options that will last due to our high-quality materials and professional installation techniques.

How long does the Commercial Glass Replacement or installation take?


From the very beginning, commercial glass replacements take about one to two weeks, depending on scheduling and manufacturing times. The actual installation process only takes 30 minutes to two hours. We take care to install your new glass correctly so it will last. The amount of time spent will depend on the number of panes and windows you need replacing.

Do I need to reinforce my door if I am installing an automatic door opener?


It’s always a good idea to reinforce your commercial door. Your door will see frequent use as you operate. Taking precautions to prevent additional damage and wear and tear will only benefit you in the long run.

Does my door require maintenance?


If your door is not functioning properly or is showing excessive signs of wear, it may be time for routine maintenance. Contact our team to schedule your commercial door maintenance.

Can I fix my door myself?
