Glass Doctor of the Heart of Texas, owned by Doug Dotson, former glassBYTEs.com blogger, faced an exciting challenge when he and his company installed 26 large windows in a turn-of-the-century home. Not only was it a complicated project, but the team was featured on HGTV’s show Fixer Upper.
The installed windows, which replicated windows of the period home, are seven-and-a-half-feet tall and 36 inches wide. The 26 windows took four days to install and required a crew of three Glass Doctor specialists.
“This was a great project and it turned out really well,” says Dotson. “The install was a little strange with all the cameras and film crew members around but it was a great project and we enjoyed being a part of it.”
The installation required a mechanical lift to assist the Glass Doctor specialists in installing the windows. The turn-of-the-century home has 10-foot ceilings, making the installation on the second level of the home the most difficult part.
“The windows were very heavy and we had to go up to the second level of the home,” Dotson adds. “We used a mechanical lift to assist the glass specialists with installing the windows.”
The entire project from ordering of the windows to installation took a total of 10 days. The episode aired on HGTV May 22.
