GARAGE DOOR GLASS
By Ivan Molina
purchased our house 6 years ago we forgot to ask for the builder to
add the small Glass Windows on the garage door while it was being
constructed. After we moved in we weren't aware that the garage door
glass windows could be added, until we were made aware by Hollywood Doors. Maybe
other Homeowners know this, but we didn't.
went over to Hollywood Doors, selected the pattern of the 8 small windows and
the type of glass (smoked or clear). One morning Hollywood Doors personnel came over, took out the
upper panel of the garage door and took it to their shop. That
afternoon they returned with all 6 glass windows added on the panel
and installed it back on. Having them installed after moving
in turned out to be a painless experience, the price was
reasonable and now our garage has natural light.
SUGGESTION: The trim that goes
around the 6 glass windows will need to be painted the same color as
the garage door. I suggest that when you select the pattern for the
6 windows that you ask Hollywood Doors to allow you to take the trim
home with you. You can paint it before installation and when they
come to your house to remove the panel they can also take the painted
trim back to the shop with them. It will save you from having to
clean the paint from the glass windows that gets on there if you
decide to paint the trim "after" the door panel
is installed back on the garage door.
