Can you recut my glass to another size?
This depends on the specific item you want cut.  If the piece of glass has been tempered, were unable to recut the glass because the piece will shatter.  Any other circumstances, yes we can recut your glass to another size.

What are the black edges on my mirrors?
If your mirror are made with real silver they can tarnish.  In the mirror is exposed to moisture, erosion with occur with black edges. To minimize harm done to silver mirrors, it is important when cleaning the surface to use products that DO NOT have ammonia or vinegar.  Ammonia and Vinegar will harm the surface of the silver mirror.

Are you able to resilver or bevel an old mirror?
In most cases no, resilvering can be very expensive and older glass tends to separate when we put it through the beveling machine. 

What is best to clean my mirrors with?
It’s best to clean your mirror with a clean rag and an ammonia or vinegar free product.

Once the glass is ordered, how long will it take to arrive?
The range will depend on what you ordered.  Straighline edge and shape work will take between 2-3 days, beveling 3-5 days, custom hand done work 7-10 days, and larger works such as shower enclosures 7-10 working days.  Other special orders include Metal for shower enclosures and heavier glass showers can take anywhere between 2-4 weeks.
