1. Shop Your Style

 

You can customize your design with our many options. Choose your glass thickness, tint, track color, hardware finish, curves, angles, and structural specifications. If you are building a new house, we can work with your architect to include the design in the plans.

 

Take the time to browse our gallery of amazing realizations, which will show you how versatile our frameless glass doors are, and inspire you to choose the options that best fit your space and needs. 

 

To see our glass doors in action, we invite you to schedule an appointment to visit one of our showrooms in Los Angeles, San Diego, or Costa Mesa. 

 

2. Get the Job Site Ready

 

There isn’t that much for you to do, except make sure the wall is fully open and expose the header and sides. If you opted for flush tracks, you or your contractor should cut into the floor to specifications. We will provide all the details so you never have to take a guess.

 

Tracks are either 1 3/4″ W x 2 1/4″ H or 1 ¾” W x 1 ¼” H, which makes them much more discreet than the regular floor tracks of bottom-rolling doors. Because all top parts run inside the upper profile, it is easy to conceal the system with drywall, wood or stucco. 

 

3. Sealing the Track Opening

 

To ensure everything is sealed, we cover the side posts and header with protective wrap while sealing the bottom with flashing and weatherproofing materials. Regardless of the angle, the track opening will be waterproof.

 

4. Tracks Go In

 

Once we are satisfied that water can’t seep into your flooring strata, the real fun part can start. Worry not, the fun is yours to have, imagining what a beautiful project you embarked on. You are, after all, one step closer to a beautiful new frameless glass door! 

 

At this stage, we install the tracks, following your home’s curves and angles, shimming as necessary to level the flush mount for a recessed track. We then drill peepholes or add pipes that will ensure proper drainage. 

 

Installation takes about 1 day per 18ft of track.

 

5. Measure Twice…

 

Only when the tracks are installed can we precisely measure the total width of the glass wall. That precision is paramount to a system that works the way it is intended to. Laser measurement will ensure all panels are the exact dimension to fit when closed and stack when open. 

 

6. …Manufacture Once

 

With our set of precise measurements, we place the order for your glass panels with our factory. Please note we do not shop around to find the cheapest options. Our glass panels are made to order under strict standards of quality control. No defect or blemish will ever be acceptable, we don’t take any production shortcuts, and we have worked with trusted glass providers for years. All panels are double-pane Low-E tempered glass with extra lamination, which equates to the best quality in safety glass on the market. The production timeframe is typically 10 to 12 business days from order.

 

To order the most durable sliding glass doors on the market, we’ve conducted extensive testing to source corrosion-resistant materials (a quality that is particularly crucial in coastal areas), aluminum tracks, UV-protected polycarbonate weather strips, polymer and stainless-steel hardware. 

 

7. Glass Mount Day

 

We trust none other than our in-house team to install our frameless glass doors. We don’t hire third-party installers like most windows and doors companies do, with the associated risk of insufficient liability insurance and lesser quality of work. Our experienced technicians go through rigorous training to earn the privilege of installing your glass doors. 

 

Cover Glass does more than sell a product. We take pride in handling the project for start to finish. At the end of a very streamlined process (3 to 4 weeks depending on demand and schedules), you are ready to enjoy the beauty and versatility of our frameless glass walls.

 

Frameless door installation by Cover Glass comes with no fuss and no mess. We deliver a product that you will love for many years to come, with the utmost respect for your house and yourself. You don’t have to take our word for it. Our clients often express their satisfaction and appreciation.

 

"I had a 12' Cover Glass door installed in my Dana Point house overlooking the water. It's the best feature of the house, like an awesome picture, but better since the doors open up and create a larger living space. I would highly recommend this company. They not only have a great product but communicated well and were always on time."
