 Why Get Sliding Glass Doors ?

Sliding glass doors are perfect for showing off your yard. You have worked hard to make sure the grass is green and the shrubs are well-manicured. You should be able to enjoy your efforts and show that yard to your guests. Inside pets love to look out windows, and glass sliding doors give them a great way to see the world around them.

Add natural light to your home with sliding glass doors. There’s no need to turn on lights and add to your electric bill when you have free sunlight! Natural light is beautiful and can be therapeutic for many people.

You might not want all that warm sunlight during the hot Florida summers, which is why many homeowners add blinds and curtains, which help regulate temperature and can be great additions to your home décor. Effective use of blinds and curtains with glass sliding doors lets you control how much sunlight to let in your home – a little less during the summer helps you stay cool, but a more sunlight during the winter can cut down on heating costs. Baker Glass Inc. offers residential glass tinting, which is a great way to further regulate sunlight.

Are Glass Doors a Safety Hazard?

Glass sliding doors are as secure as they are attractive. As with any door or window in your home, there are some steps you can take to ensure your safety. Baker Glass Inc. offers the following tips to ensure your security with glass doors:

Test your lock: Make sure the lock built into your sliding glass doors’ handle works by closing your doors, engaging the lock and then trying to open them. If you can move or open the door, the locking mechanism should be repaired or replaced.

Use a slide-locking bar: A slide-locking bar is quite simple. It is a metal bar or wood dowel that fits into the bottom track of sliding glass doors and prevents them from sliding open.

Maintain rollers and tracks: Most sliding doors move on small rollers, but if they are damaged or there is debris in the track, the door could be easily lifted off its tracks.

Install a commercial lock: These locks attach to the door and use steel bolts to keep your doors closed.  

Don’t forget about your alarm system: Be sure to put sensors on your sliding glass doors to set off the alarm if the doors open unexpectedly. Many burglars, however, expect these sensors and simply break the glass, which doesn’t set off an alarm. Add even more security by installing shatter sensors on your glass sliding doors. If the glass breaks, the alarm goes off.

Frameless glass shower doors and enclosures bring a modern, elegant look appear larger and more open. Why not extend the luxury of the rest of your home into the bathroom? A bathroom doesn’t have to be a utilitarian room with no creativity. Today’s planners and home builders put as much thought and creativity into bathrooms as every other room. Frameless glass shower enclosures will give you a bathroom worth showing off.

Durable, Safe Frameless Glass Shower Enclosures

Frameless glass shower doors do not use metal in their construction, so you will never have to replace rusted or corroded parts. Traditional doors use their frames to slide open and closed. Frameless shower doors, however, almost always swing on hinges, creating an interesting, more modern design.

A lack of a metal frame around the glass does not create a safety issue, though. All the glass’s edges are filed to a rounded, smooth finish, meaning there are no cuts or scrapes from the glass. Your bathroom gets a modern, open look – and you get a durable, safe, luxurious shower enclosure you will want to show off.

Endless Possibilities for Your Bathroom

Bathrooms are larger and more open than ever before. A frameless glass shower enclosure gives the whole room a clean, elegant look that it appear larger than it really is. The metal frames of traditional shower doors create hard lines that close off the room and make it feel compartmentalized.

Frameless shower doors are not as noticeable as traditional doors, and this helps incorporate the shower into the rest of the room without distraction. It also helps show off the intricate tile work and beautiful fixtures you chose so carefully.

Frameless shower enclosures can be custom-cut to fit any shower or bathtub. Turn your bathroom into an upscale spa that will be the envy of everyone who sees it!

Add even more luxury to your bathroom with custom wall mirrors from Baker Glass!

Contact Baker Glass Jacksonville FL today at (904) 388-9126 to find out more about the latest innovation in bathroom design.

Home window tinting is a great investment in your comfort and your bank account.  Tinted windows on your home or office protect your furniture, curtains, carpet and more from the harmful rays of the sun. Home window tinting also provides an extra level of security. We all know how brutal the North Florida summers can be. Tinting your home or office windows help reduce the energy needed to keep you cool, which saves you money! Call Baker Glass Inc. in Jacksonville FL today to talk to the experts in home window tinting!

Home Window Tinting for Protection

We all like to have the curtains and blinds open to make the inside of our homes feel bigger. Did you know, however, that just as repeated exposure to the sun can tan or burn your skin, it can damage the interior of your home? Those beautiful curtains, that colorful sofa, your elegant carpet – all can fade pretty quickly with repeated exposure to sunlight coming in through your windows. With home window tinting, you can enjoy those fantastic views without risking the damage to your interior.

Tinted Windows for Privacy and Security

Home window tinting adds a level of privacy. If you have large windows and live along a busy street, you don’t have to keep your curtains drawn to keep prying eyes out of your home. Burglaries often occur because the thieves saw something they wanted. If they can’t see inside your home, the temptation is reduced.

Reduce Your Energy Bill with Home Window Tinting

Air conditioners stay busy year-round in Jacksonville FL, but especially during the summer. Home window tinting reduces the amount of sunlight that comes in through your windows, which keeps your home cooler. In turn, it takes less electricity to keep you nice and comfortable. You quickly recoup your investment – and then some – when you pay lower electricity bills.

Let the Experts Tint Your Windows

Sure, you can buy home window tinting kits and do it yourself, but those kits cannot compare in quality to the material and used by glass experts. The technicians at Baker Glass Inc. in Jacksonville FL have years of experience and training in home window tinting. We pride ourselves on fast, efficient work and quality materials. Call (904) 388-9126 today for a free estimate!
