WACO, Texas (April 18, 2014) - Glass Doctor® of Heart of Texas installed windows at a house in central Texas that was being renovated and was featured on the HGTV program “Fixer Upper.”
Glass Doctor of Heart of Texas faced an exciting challenge when they installed 26 large windows in the turn-of-the-century home.
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,” said Doug Dotson, owner of Glass Doctor of Heart of Texas. “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 install required a mechanical lift to assist the Glass Doctor specialist 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,” said Dotson. “We used a mechanical lift to assist the glass specialist with installing the windows.”
The entire project from ordering of the windows to installation took a total of 10 days.
