5 Advantages of Installing Insulated Glass

Happy Family – Salt Lake City, UT – Central Glass Company

Insulated glass has become a popular choice for windows in modern and contemporary homes for many reasons. By keeping your home warmer during cold winters and cooler during summer, insulated glass creates a more eco-conscious home with a strong design element.

Insulated glass combines two or more glass panes instead of one, creating a pocket of air within the glass structure to allow for adequate insulation.

If your home is yet to benefit from insulated glass installation, discover the advantages of insulated glass and reasons why most homeowners prefer using insulated glass in their home improvement projects.

1. Helps With Noise Reduction

Living in a neighborhood that usually has loud noises can lead to irritation, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping, which consequently interferes with your daily working capacity.

What to Look for in Energy-Efficient Window Replacements

Energy Efficient Window – Salt Lake City, UT – Central Glass Company

Installing new windows is a great opportunity to give your home a new look. But did you know it’s also a great opportunity to improve your energy efficiency as well? Your windows have a tremendous impact on the amount of heat and energy that can enter and exit your home. This guide will help to familiarize you with what you should look for in energy-efficient window replacements that can save you both time and energy.

Frame Design

Window replacements don’t have to match the style of window that you started with. Choosing a window design with less air leakage is an excellent first step toward energyefficient windows. Naturally, this means that non-opening windows are the most efficient, but most homeowners want the option to let fresh air in occasionally. Between hinged and sliding windows, hinged designs will create a tighter seal when they close and leak less air.

Why Bother Repairing That Tiny Windshield Chip?

Repaired Tiny Windshield Chip – Salt Lake City, UT – Central Glass Company

Common causes of windshield chips include rocks flying on the road from other cars, debris hitting your vehicle while your car is parked, or even drastic temperature changes because glass expands and contracts with weather changes.

You may have the tiniest chip in your windshield that is so small you almost don’t see it. If the chip hasn’t expanded at all and isn’t in your line of sight, should you even bother getting it repaired? Learn more about why a repair is necessary below.

Get Creative With Mirror Design

What are the most creative ways to use mirrors in your home? If your interior aesthetic is artsy and imaginative, take a look at the ways to incorporate custom cut mirrors.

Go Geometric

Creative With Mirror Design – Salt Lake City, UT – Central Glass Company Math isn’t just a school subject. Play with geometry and create mirrors with a bold, artsy style. Traditional bathroom vanity and closet mirrors have a rectangular shape. But you can break from the standard and use geometric forms in other ways. These include:  
  • Circles. From smaller bubble-shaped mirrors that you hang together gallery-style to one over-sized circle, this is an imaginative and unexpected way to decorate. These m irrors can also add a nautical or rustic feel to your room’s décor.
  • Ovals. Up the creative ante with an oval. This play on the circular shape can stand vertically or hang horizontally. Use an elongated oval as a full-length wall or closet door mirror or stretch a horizontal oval above a double bathroom sink or bedroom dresser.
  • Triangles. While you won’t find a triangle-shaped mirror in your local home improvement store, a glass contractor can custom cut this geometric design. Showcase a triangle in a living space or add an over-sized triangle as an artsy bedroom or bathroom accent.
 

How to Add Space to a Galley Kitchen With Glass and Mirrors

Elegant Kitchen Design – Salt Lake City, UT – Central Glass Company

How can you use glass and mirrors to make your galley kitchen larger? While you can’t literally enlarge the area with decorative accents, you can use these building materials to give the illusion of added space. If you have a long, narrow corridor-style kitchen, take a look at what you need to know before you decorate with glass or mirrors.

Add Glass to the Upper Row of Cabinets

Glass can open an area and add a sense of brightness. But this doesn’t mean you should go wild with clear surfaces and replace everything with glass. Before you switch out clunky wooden or board cabinet doors with translucent ones, consider:

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
