Glass Options

Choose from a variety of glass options when you order your custom window or door. Our glass options include tempered, laminated, frosted, and tinted glass. Tempered and laminated glass provide additional strength, safety, and noise control. Frosted glass creates a sense of privacy while still allowing light to filter in. Tinted glass minimizes the sun’s UV rays and glare, keeping rooms cooler and more comfortable. Explore our available window glass types and their features and benefits in the table below.
