What To Expect During Glass Installations
No matter what space is being prepared for installation, whether it's the bathroom, kitchen or other rooms in a home or business, glass additions can make the area really shine with unique, custom work. Here are a few things you can plan on during the installation and how to prepare around your home before the professionals come to do the work.
1. Access to windows and doors
Installation technicians will need space wherever the work is being done. The glass company will discuss the details prior to beginning the job so as to avoid any unexpected obstacles. It's important to have a clear entry way for the products to be safely moved into the space. Any objects that are in the entryways which may obstruct movement throughout the area, should be moved if possible.
2. Safety and construction cleanup
Any home or business remodeling project can create some debris and dust. Expect some noise, and minimal disruption of your living space but also expect a thorough final cleanup. The technicians will place drop cloths and have all tools necessary to perform the installation of your new products. They will of course take extra care to leave the space safe and clean as they move through the installation process.
3. Homeowner preparedness
When any work is being performed in your home or business it's never a bad idea to move any fragile or expensive items located in the work area. Technicians will take all the necessary precautions and treat the space with the utmost respect. Items that are in the direct work space and are vulnerable to damage should be moved in order to keep all fragile items safe.
4. Children and pets
Children and pets may be a concern as they can be an obstacle if they are running or playing in or around the work area during the installation. You'll want to keep children entertained or plan the work for when they're at school or at a friends for the day. The same goes for pets. If possible, keep them contained in a room or separate part of the house for the duration of the installation. Any pet items or children's toys should also be cleared from the work space so it's safe and there's a clear path. Supervising your pets to prevent injury and escape is key.
After the work is complete, the space will get a walk-through to ensure all is tidied up

Professional, responsive, timely, precise and just overall impressive
After an extensive search to have installed mirrors in our gym in the Northern Neck area for a glass company we found More Than Glass. From the time I introduced myself to the final installation, their team of experts were professional, responsive, timely, precise and just overall impressive. I’m quite picky about who I hire for expert services and I would 200% recommend More than Glass for your glass and mirror requirements. We will clearly use them again for any future needs.

I was more than pleased
I was more than pleased when I contacted your company to help with a shattered sliding glass door in the sun room. I contacted your team via internet form in the morning. I received a call that afternoon and your people came out to give me a quote the next day. The following day, he came to do the repair. Thanks for your teams reliability, efficiency, and expertise!
I Refer More Than Glass
I bought a large piece of glass (4'x9') to cover our kitchen table. They offered options for the edge and corners and had my glass ready in a couple of days. I picked it up and they helped me load it in my vehicle. Whenever someone asks where we got the glass, I refer them to More Than Glass. Very happy with the product and service.
