The idea behind Glassdoor is simple: You tell me your salary, and I’ll tell you mine. Additionally the graceful arch at the top of the door is repeated within the raised wood panels, echoing the architectural statement of refinement and attention to detail. The side light window is just what it says, it is a window that is next to the door on the side. For a sliding glass door to be considered energy-efficient, it must have a high-performance glaze.
This traditional classic brings a new twist to classic elements of raised wood and leaded glass with a curved transom window at the top and the leaded glass design repeated throughout from the side lights to the double doors to the transom window. Another great design that is transitional that offers a hint of the Victorian era with its elaborate leaded glass and a hint of the modern. Beyond the wood grain, beyond the raised panel, beyond the glass texture, adding a leaded glass with detailed Tiffany framing is an entire new level of texture for the exterior door.
There’s a reason we offer such unique decorative glass options – they’re designed by our talented glass artists. With all the decorative glass designs we offer, there’s sure to be one to match your home’s architectural style. Of course, you can always give your entry a truly personalized look by bringing us your own ideas for a glass design. Although I love our old solid wood door (with a carving on the outside) it is old and cracked.
In our insert, sidelight and transom glass designs, caming is the metal bonding that fuses individual glass pieces together. Door manufactures such as Jeld-Wen offer an energy efficient option for glass – both on their windows and on their doors. The high-performance low-e insulating glass lowers energy costs, helps homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, prevents fading of interior furnishings, and reduces condensation. If heat gain is a concern as it is in most of southwestern United States, there is another version of low-e, call LoĒ³-366 glass.
This glass provides more protection against heat gain by blocking harmful infared rays, as well as providing greater energy savings. Tiffany style glass inserts are made with the finest hand-selected, hand made colored glass, assembled with a copper foil and lead technique. No two sheets of colored glass are identical, so slight variations in color hue may occur in each glass panel.
