How does the free "contact free" estimate work?


Simply call me at 289-981-2829 to receive it. All you will need is your cell phone, a tape measure and 15 minutes of your time. When you call I'll pull up a Google Maps Streetview image of your home. This gives me an idea of what I am working with. Then, together we'll go through the number and sizes of the windows you need. After we're done I'll get back to you the same day via email with an estimate.




How long long does it take for the windows to be built?


Once I place the order, which is typically the same day (or the day after) you sign the contract, it takes 4-5 weeks for the windows to be built and delivered to me. I call you when they come in and arrange a convenient time for me to install.




How long does it take to actually install the glass?


We are very fast, efficient and clean (we don't make a mess). It takes about 1.5 hours to do ten 18 x 42 window glass replacements. That includes taking the old window glass out, installing the new window glass and clean up!




How messy is installation compared to full window (frame and all) replacement?


Installing window glass is not messy and does not typically involve moving a lot of surrounding furniture. There is no cutting typically, no sanding, no dust, no mess. Usually the only dirt is the dirt that has gathered in or around the window - which we vacuum up usually before we install the new glass (to ensure a good fit). Installing a full window (frame and all) is a big job involving trimming, sanding, cutting lots of dust and dirt.




How does the cost of replacing glass compare to the cost of replacing a window?


It doesn't really. A standard size piece of glass (say 18" x 42") can cost as little as $160 (installed). A full window replacement with the same size glass, will cost much more - according to homeadvisor.com the average cost to replace a window is $650 (installed). That's a significant difference. More importantly, the big question is whether you really need to have the whole window replaced - or is the issue simply with the glass?




Why would I need to replace my window glass?


If your glass is cracked - it is not going to work as it should. If your glass if foggy on the inside or has moisture on the inside - it is not working as it should. Cracked or foggy, if the glass is not working as it should, it will not be keeping the cold air out in the winter, or the hot air out in the summer. You'll notice how cold it is in the winter near the window, and how hot it is in the summer. New glass will change that. You will notice the difference immediately. Also, you'll actually be able to see outside clearly - not through a window that you can't clean (because the dirt is on the inside) or one that is too foggy, too often. All of these things mean the "seal" (preventing cold/hot air from entering) has been compromised. The window glass needs to be replaced.




Do you take away the old glass?


Yes we do. This is included as part of our service.




Do you install whole windows (the glass and frame)?


No I do not. That's a different business. I started Garrett's Window Glass Replacement because I found that many people were replacing their whole window (glass and frame) when they did not have to. As a result they are needlessly spending a lot more than they have to. Frames typically outlast glass and glass can be replace at a fraction of the cost. I specialize in replacing just the glass. I do it quickly, efficiently, professionally and safely!




What have you done to enhance safety in light of COVID 19?


COVID 19 has changed the way we all work, and as a result I've upgraded my promise to you: "A great product, at a great price, with great and safe service" I've also upgraded my process to ensure that it is COVID 19 safe. Step 1: The "contact free" estimate: Simply call me at 289-981-2829 to receive it. All you will need is your cell phone, a tape measure and 15 minutes of your time. When you call I'll pull up a Google Maps Streetview image of your home. This gives me an idea of what I am working with. Then, together we'll go through the number and sizes of the windows you need. After we're done I'll get back to you the same day via email with an estimate. Step 2: You decide if you want to proceed with an order: If you want to proceed we then book a time for me to come to your home to do a "final" measurement. It will take about 30 minutes and I do the measurements from inside the house. When I arrive at your home I will be wearing gloves and a mask. When you answer the door I will step back 6 feet. Before entering your home I will put a new and sanitized protective sleeve over my footwear. When I enter your home I will not need to touch anything as long as you have moved any furniture away from any windows that I need to measure. If you have high windows, I will bring a sanitized ladder into your house (with santized protective sleeves on its "feet"). The ladder is an "A" frame ladder which will not lean on/touch anything. I will wipe down with a disinfecting sanitizer, any glass that I do touch. Step 3: Confirming your order via email/payment of deposit/ placing of order: After I leave I will put together the final quote (which should be the same as the original estimate - just with more precise sizing), which I email to you same day for you to review. You then agree via email that you want to proceed and send me the deposit (50% of the value of the order). Once I have received the deposit, I place the order. It will take approximately 4-6 weeks for the glass to be delivered to me. The window glass I use comes from a factory in the U.S., from a company called Cardinal - the best window glass in the business! Step 4: Installation: Once I receive the glass I will call you to schedule the installation. Installation time depends on the number and size of windows. Ten windows of 18" x 42" size would typically take about 1.5 hours to install. On the day of the installation, I will use the same protocol as for Step 2 above when arriving at your home. The only difference is I may bring a helper if necessary (my father). Additionally, when bringing the glass into the house I utilize our "glass out/glass in" protocol (each piece of glass is brought into the house individually) which minimizes contact with surfaces. The glass is removed from the window (we dispose of all glass), never touches the ground or any surface, and the new glass is brought in and placed directly in the frame. We typically do not even touch the window frame and all glass is sanitized after installation. We are very clean - you won't know we've been there (other than your clear new glass)!
