Decorative glass insert

A decorative glass insert can really bring any exterior door to life in a variety of ways:

  • Select from a standard design or custom create your own
  • Choose from an almost limitless palette of colours
  • Control how much light and privacy you want your doors to offer

Unlike doors from the big box store, decorative glass inserts are hand-crafted by artisans.

They don’t come from an assembly line and they feature the highest levels of craftsmanship.

As well as being beautiful, decorative glass inserts are energy-efficient too since many of them are made with Low-E glass.

In the summer, Low-E glass reflects heat to the exterior of your home. While in winter, it keeps heat from escaping.

For over 1000 years, stained glass designs have been found in churches and cathedrals all over the world.

And recently, homeowners in Burlington, Oakville and surrounding areas are bringing the bright colours and intricate designs of stained glass to their door inserts.

The process of creating a stained glass insert installation is both delicate and impressive:

  • Individual pieces of coloured glass are cut
  • The separate pieces are laid down in a pattern
  • Strips made from zinc, lead or other materials hold the pattern in place
  • The finished design is placed in a frame and secured into the door

As a result, you’ll have a modern door for your home that’s truly unlike anything else out there.
