Custom Glass For Vinyl Windows

vinyl windows in your Tucson, AZ homeIf you’re installing new vinyl windows in your Tucson, AZ home, you have a great opportunity to add custom glass. From style to function and many other benefits, custom glass is a wonderful addition to any home. There are lots of different kinds of custom glass out there for vinyl windows including privacy, safety, decorative and etched.  

  • Privacy glass is a lightly blurred glass that prevents people from seeing into your home without filtering too much natural light. There are privacy glass options that have an obscurity rating of 9 or higher, meaning its almost impossible to see through for ultimate privacy. Privacy glass can also be decorative, with patterns like frosted leafs, pebbles and rain.  
  • Safety glass is a tempered option that is more resistant to shattering and breaking that standard replacement window glass. Typically, window glass breaks into either big, dangerous pieces or tiny shards that can cause serious injuries. Tempered safety glass breaks into small, round pieces with no sharp edges, greatly reducing injury risk.  
  • Decorative glass can come in almost any color, size or shape. Add grilles and grids for added support with the look of individual panes, or stained glass for color and personality. You can even order glass to fit unusual replacement window shapes like round, triangle, or diamond to fit unique spaces around your home.  
  • Etched glass is another kind of decorative glass. It comes in eight common yet distinctive patterns including single, double, diamond, petal, trellis and more. Etched glass is also available in different etching styles like shadow, frosted and polished. Combine different patterns and styles for unique replacement window looks that match your home décor and personality.  

You can use custom glass for vinyl windows all around your home. Each type has different uses and different ideal locations. Privacy glass is a great option for bathroom windows, as it boosts privacy but still lets in lots of natural light. You can even use privacy glass inside your home for shower doors or dividers.   

Safety glass is perfect for any vinyl window in your home, but especially for those in potentially unsafe areas. For example, use safety glass in windows around wet or slippery areas in case you fall and hit the window.   

Decorative glass is a great choice for any window that you want to add interest or make a focal point. Use stained glass in your entry way windows to greet guests with personality, or put etched glass in your kitchen windows to cast fun shadows on the counter.
