Make Your Tulsa Home Beautiful with Beveled Glass from A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door

Do you ever think about remodeling your home, but feel like your budget is too tight to look into it? Would you be interested if something small and affordable could give your home a whole new look?  Just a simple, small window in a door way or in a guest bathroom could add an appealing look to your home. Changing out an existing, basic window to a window with unique glass could do so much for the looks of a room. To give your existing d├ęcor a little punch, think about replacing a plain window with beveled glass.  Beveled glass, with the right boundary, is a one of a kind glass. With certain angles or bevels, it gives the look of prisms, often leaving the image of a rainbow. Beveled glass will give your home the different colors for you to experience inside of your home as sunlight beams through. Just plain glass won't give you this type of  spectrum.  Beveled glass comes in various constellations, giving customers a range of colors they could never imagine. Incorporating beveled glass with other colored or plain glass can give a more intense and unique design. Today, beveled glass is commonly found in clocks, doors, lamps and windows.

A common misconception of beveled glass is that it is fragile and can break easily even while cleaning. Because of this misconception, few people want beveled glass in their homes. The truth is, cleaning beveled glass is not any different than cleaning other glass.  Should you decide to try to give an entry way, foyer or a another room a different look with beveled glass, ask the contractor that installs it for cleaning suggestions.  Tulsa glass company A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door offer customers the best beveled glass in Tulsa for beautiful doors and windows!  If you are looking to spruce up your home a little bit and are interested in purchasing a door or window that contains beveled glass, look no further than A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door in Tulsa, Oklahoma!  A1 Glass offers the most high-quality and durable beveled glass windows and doors.  For all of your beveled glass needs, don't hesitate to call or visit A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door in Tulsa, OK today!

A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door Provides Tulsa, OK with Superior Windshield Services

Do you have a crack in your windshield?  Have you been putting off getting your windshield replaced?  When people get their windshield replaced, it is often because the crack has finally stretched across the windshield to where it is in the driver's line of vision, or it magnifies the sun's glare when it hits the crack, causing a temporary blind moment. However, a crack or chip that is in the far corner of the passenger side can be just as dangerous as the on on the drivers side.  Even the slightest crack in a windshield can cause the windshield to become weak. So should you have a collision, especially involving the front of your car and the air bags engage, they could very well go right through the weakened windshield. Worse yet, the passenger could be ejected through the weak windshield, along with the airbag.  Also, in the rare, unlikely case that you could ever roll over your vehicle, the windshield serves as a support system to keep the roof from caving in on top of you. You have a better chance of sustaining an injury only and not being crushed under the weight of you car or truck when you have a strong windshield.

If you have a cracked windshield, you may not realize it, but your auto insurance may cover part or all of the cost to replace your windshield. However, money should not be the factor that keeps you from replacing what seems to be a simple part of your car or truck. Your windshield is a big part of your car or truck's existence and even a bigger part in your safety and the safety of your passengers.  Don't wait another day to get your windshield repaired or replaced!  Your safety as well as the safety of your family members and friends is important, so make sure you get a new windshield as soon as possible!  A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door specializes in windshield repair in Tulsa as well as windshield replacement.  If you are in need of windshield repair, A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door offers the best Tulsa windshield repair services!  If you feel that your windshield is damaged beyond repair, A1 Glass also provides customers with the greatest windshield replacement in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  For all your windshield needs, don't hesitate to call or visit A1 Glass Metro Mirror & Shower Door today!

Winter Windshield Care Tips - A1 Glass of Tulsa, OK

As the cold season has currently come upon us. People are very quick to get their heaters checked, wrap up their outside hose spigots, and keep their winter coat collection handy - but they forget about their car! In addition to keeping your car running beautifully, there are a couple tips you need to keep to heart to keep your windshield prepared for any winter weather. 

Keep up with repairs. 
scraping ice off windshieldGlass is very susceptible to damage with temperature change. What could have been a minor defect in the warmer months can be made worse with a sudden temperature change. By keeping up with repairs to chips and cracks in windshields as they occur, you can greatly extend the life of your car's windshield. 

Patience, Grasshopper. 
When de-icing or defrosting your car's windshield, don't use any knuckle-headed tricks to quickly get rid of the ice. Pouring hot water and other hot substances on your windshield can be just the temperature change it needs to turn a chip into a crack. For the best results, just plan ahead and use the car's own defrost function as well as an ice-scraper to get rid of ice.

The normal hardware will do. 
Most ice-scrapers on the market are specifically designed to take the ice off your windshield without damaging it. The plastic cannot put scratches in the windshield because of the material. Metal, however - such as from a knife, ax, or car keys, can definitely scratch your windshield. If you don't feel your ice scraper is doing a good job, it just sounds like you need to be a little more patient. 

Check your wipers. 
The functionality of your windshield wipers can be a matter of life and death. By ensuring that your windshield wipers are in good shape, you can save yourself a lot of grief down the road as well as on the road. When the cold months roll in, invest in some cold-weather windshield wipers. Though you'll think you're getting taken for a ride on the price, they'll pay off during the winter season when bad weather hits. 

Don't wait - get it fixed or replaced!
If your windshield is cracked in the winter, it is only going to get worse as you leave it overnight to get cold and then heat it back up again when you drive. Even storing it in a warm garage won't help as you'll be taking it right back out into the cold again the following day. To provide a potentially fatal situation, consult a windshield replacement expert about auto glass replacement in Tulsa, OK. A Tulsa glass specialist as opposed to just a car specialist is more familiar with how glass behaves once damaged or in varying temperatures.

Be safe and keep your wits about you on the road - you may be one of the only one who does!

How It's Made: Mirrors

You see them every day.  You probably carry one in your purse.  You most likely stare at one while washing your hands.  You look at one in your car while changing lanes.  Soulja boy said it best when he said you "hop out the bed, turn your swag on, take a look in the mirror and say 'What'sup?'"  You guessed right.  I am talking about the pocket mirror in your purse, the mirror on your bathroom wall, and the side mirror on your car.

Mirrors are everywhere.  They are all around us.  But have you ever stopped and wondered how mirrors are made?  Have you ever thought about what the process looked like that went into creating the mirrors that are so often around you?  Mirrors used to be made by a polishing process, but now they are made by condensing liquid metals on a sheet of glass.  If you want to learn more about how mirrors are made, you can search the web and read more about it!
