What services do you offer?

Donny Herndon: We do major window repairs, kitchen cabinets, glass shelving, residential gyms and bathroom mirrors. Our limitation is your imagination.

Cheryl Hood: We replace broken glass, do fogged glass repair, sliding glass doors, windows that don’t stay up, window cranks and window screens. We do a little bit of mirror, but that’s not our priority. Most of it’s window repair.

Pierce Lindsey: I do commercial and residential work. The majority of my work is shower doors, but I do mirrors, glass shelves, etching and stained glass. The only thing I don’t do is automotive glass.

Do you offer emergency service? Is there an extra charge?

Herndon: Yes, we do 24-hour emergency service. When it’s after hours there’s an emergency fee, generally between $100 and $150, that goes directly to the installer. That is a bonus to the technician.

Hood: For the most part, in the middle of the night, no. If someone calls on the weekend, we do not charge anything additional.

Lindsey: I do not.

How is pricing determined?

Herndon: A service call and the first hour is $90 if it’s a one-man job. If it’s a two-man job it’s $150. A bathroom mirror installation averages $175.

Hood: It’s basically by the job depending on what needs to be done. When they call, I try to give them an idea over the phone. I’ll ask several questions. The average for single-pane glass to be replaced is around $110 to $125.

Lindsey: By the job. I give free estimates. The average mirror installation is $175 and glass shower door is about $1,000.

Are there any current trends in mirrors or glass design?

Herndon: We do glass countertops. We edge glass. We edge a scenery in a piece of glass. We’ll install LED light glass. We’ve done mosaic pieces

Hood: There’s quite a few people replacing their windows with energy-efficient windows.

Lindsey: The current trend for mirrors is framed mirrors. People are doing ornate things. Frameless is the trend for the shower doors; people want the least amount of metal possible.
