We Drilled in every room! A home filled with our glass.

In this business, we see and do a lot of cool and unique work. This job in particular was one that really showcased not only our work, but it also enabled us to focus on what it takes to get a job like this done from start to finish. Originally this job was introduced to Tom Nolan via email and a set of plans. Typically, Tom does the plans, provides a rough budget based on what is listed, and then awaits the client to inform us when the job is ready to measure. It went to me, Alex, to focus the budget with a few emails and design changes which led to me going on site and starting my measurements.

The home in San Francisco

The initial visit, the free estimate, was to get a feel for the site as a whole as the tile was not ready in some of the showers. I was able to get rough sizing of the showers and start to get an idea about the mirrors. Once everything was ready I was able to measure. There was a lot of back and forth about design, location, and style. While we are considered a contractor we are also a designer in a sense that our units aren't just enclosures, but focal points in bathrooms, wine rooms, offices, etc. Thus, our expertise, experience, and advice is crucial to assuring the client gets exactly what they want, assuming it is within the realm of possibility.

This job was a decent size, with four shower doors, four mirrors, and stair railings. With a job like this, full of many design changes and many visits, mistakes can happen. Unfortunately, the original mirror pictured to the right had came in without bevels. Luckily, we use mirror mastic, which is a industry standard glue, that when properly heated can be easily removed and allow us to replace the mirror as needed. As mistakes come, I am glad this was a simple one which was taken care of immediately.  

Once the shower doors and mirrors were installed the railings came next. Since I was the original estimator on site, I was able to discuss their plans for glass railings and discovered that they were going to use special and expensive hardware for a stand-off set up. I had mentioned we do that all of the time without the need of special hardware. I had asked for the plans and once I received them I forwarded them to Marcos Canizales, VP and head of railings. He was able to achieve exactly what the clients had wanted and at a fraction of the cost! Below you can see the railings as well as all of the other work we installed.

Smooth and clean

Having been in the glass business for over 80 years, we have had the pleasure of doing some truly unique and difficult enclosures. However, there is something to be said about a relatively simple enclosure coming together smoothly and finishing with a gorgeous look. It is a great way to showcase our motto and for us to admire our process, from A to B to C,  internally. 

Below are some examples of recent work where we were able to make something simple in design look elegant and methodical.

It's Hip To Be Square!

More times than we can count, we get asked if we can do what most other glazing companies can't or will not do. It has become a mantra of sorts that when asked said question we reply, "that's our specialty!" Below are photos of an enclosure that may seem daunting to others, but is right up our alley! 

Tony Contreras, one of our senior estimators, was able to provide a beautiful enclosure to a somewhat unusual (not so much to us) set up. When asked about this project, Tony had this to say:

This particular job was unique. It had to make sense to the Designer, and most importantly, with the needs and practical use for the homeowners without going overboard. The job is located in Orinda and it took 2 trips to complete and, as you can see, the ultimate result is fantastic! It pays off when you plan things the right way!

This unit was created using our low-iron Starphire glass and rounded square clips. Using the Starphire glass was a great choice as you see the stunning stone work inside the unit while also giving the bathroom space and depth that standard clear glass wouldn't have achieved.

preparation is crucial

Whenever we do a job, we do all that we can to ensure the unit goes in the first time. It requires a lot of preparation and the proper set up to make that happen. I was fortunate to receive this job from Bay Marin Construction that required me to use my creative skills and knowledge to make sure a relatively simple Regency 90 degree unit with saloon doors fit in very unique tile. 


The first image shows the tile is actually two parts: The main piece and a rectangular one in the center. The contractor and I had managed to come up with pushing the center one flush with the raised portion of the tile to make sure the glass had no gaps against the wall.  

After all was said and done, there was a rush to get this unit in. Luckily Alicia, our head of scheduling and miracle worker, made sure to get this unit in as soon as possible. The home owner had a large house warming party and our shower had to be in. Thanks to the proper preparation, attention to detail, and the extra mile, Junior & Sergio installed this unit without flaw.

In the end, it came out beautiful. Utilizing 3/8" and 1/2" Starphire glass, the unit ties everything together and shows off the unique tile.

A beautiful job in sonoma

A picture may say a thousand words but a video such as this leaves people speechless.  We did work in this beautiful home and this video showcases our scope. We did multiple frame-less Regency enclosures as well as large 1/4" mirrors. As shown in the main photo gallery on our website, we install our products in many large homes such as this; however, the quality pictured here echoes throughout all of our work, no matter the job size. Below are the stills of the video which depict our work!

Thank you to Eames Construction for the opportunity to work on such a beautiful home!
