Textured Glass Options
GLASS PRESERVE™ PROTECTIVE FILM
A little added insurance for your new window investment. This optional removable protective film is applied to the exterior and interior glass surfaces at the factory to shield the glass from unwanted debris and scratches during shipping, handling and installation. Peels away when the job is finished to reveal clear unblemished glass.
NEAT® NATURALLY CLEAN GLASS
A special titanium-dioxide coating applied to the glass exterior reacts with the sun’s UV rays to loosen the bond of organic material to the glass surface. Dirt is easily rinsed away with rain. The extremely smooth surface of Neat Glass sheets water away promoting faster evaporation and reduced water spotting resulting in cleaner, clearer glass. Optional in Dashwood windows. Includes Preserve™ protective exterior film.
