FAQ

Yes. This program works especially well with steel and most fiberglass doors.

To determine if your door is steel, simply place a refrigerator magnet on it. If it sticks, you have a steel door. If the magnet does not stick, measure the center panels of your door from outside edge of the left panel to the outside edge of the right panel. If the measurement is 23" or less, you probably have a fiberglass door.

Wood doors with square panels or carvings or some type of glass in it require some modification to the door slab before glass can be installed. Extra materials and labor are required.

All of our glass has at least two and most have three panes of glass thickness. The outside two panes are tempered safety glass. While they can be broken, the effort needed to break out one of these glass inserts exceeds the time and noise levels most crooks are willing to spend. They will simply give up and go to a less obvious location.

The manufacturers of decorative glass understand your concerns, and have addressed the issue.

While there are varying degrees of obscurity, even the clearest glass has some type design that obscures the vision. The person walking down the sidewalk, or mowing the lawn usually cannot see through the glass with enough clarity to determine if anyone is even home.

We suggest you install a screw in motion detector on your outside porch light, set to turn the light on when people approach your front door. This will back light the outside, and make the glass even more difficult to see through, especially at night.

Absolutely. For decorative door glass and between-the-glass-blinds, it is ten (10) years on the product. Labor is covered for the first year.

We think it is important to note that our warranty is not prorated as with some. If your glass or frame fails anytime within the ten-year period, we will replace the unit at no charge to you (except for a change out fee after the first year).

Additionally, our glass frames are of a high performance design that does not require painting, but can be painted if desired, even a dark color. Beware of those that require the frame to be painted but only a light color. You may even place our frames behind a storm door!

As a custom door manufacturer, we have the ability to build and install doors as quickly as anyone in the industry. 

One thing we have learned in our 41 years is to UNDERpromise, and OVERdeliver. 

With the historic supply chain issues we are experiencing, our timeline for full prehung custom door units is 6-10 weeks as of 5/19/2022.

Dream Makeover Glass can be done in a matter of a few days, but most of those projects have a 2-6 week timeline for completion. Once we are to the jobsite, this DreamMakeover takes less than 90 minutes from start to finish. 

Custom units from other manufacturers vary. We have some door units that can take 30 weeks or more. We will provide you with the widest selection of door units and manufacturers, and will let you decide which one becomes your new Dream Door.

If you are a realtor serving the northeast Florida market, we may be able to help you increase your customer's market appeal by increasing the home's curb appeal. It's no secret that a decorative entryway adds approximately 6% to the perceived value of a home (Fenestration trade magazine, October 2002) but what may not be known is how affordable it is to upgrade a home entryway.

Most home improvement projects cost thousands... but for just hundreds, Dream Doors and More can add decorative glass to your customer's existing door, adding market appeal, curb appeal and value.
