One flawed stone or a single malicious or clumsy fool can ruin your day and your home or shop window. Let Solano Glass save your day when a pane of glass becomes a pain in the glass.
Located on Air Base Parkway and Clay Bank Road, Solano Glass Company has served Solano County’s residents and businesses for more than six decades.
While six decades may seem like an ancient story to many, over time even something as timeless as the basic technology of window glass has changed.
“All new windows in residential and commercial buildings (buildings) must meet strict criteria for Title 24 with extremely low-e glass products and thermally defective systems. These items definitely help with lower energy costs, ”says Curtis Branson.
Title 24 has to do with government building codes and energy saving requirements by requiring all windows to meet certain criteria.
Solano Glass Company specializes in many different types of glass, including glass for shop windows, living room windows, mirrors, shower doors, screens and patio doors. They are also specialists in government regulations that many homeowners and business owners would find confusing.
“We have years of experience and are very detail-oriented,” says Branson. “We pride ourselves on our professionalism.”
One way the Solano Glass Company’s business has changed is that they don’t cut as much glass and frame windows on site.
“We do less manufacturing because of more competitive manufacturing companies,” says Branson, a 1976 Fairfield High graduate. “Many manufacturers also deliver products directly to a construction site.”
As has been the case for years, the Solano Glass Company has been awarded an “A +” by the Better Business Bureau. This is the eighth year in a row that the longtime local business has been recognized as a front runner in its industry by readers of the Daily Republic.
The Solano Glass Company, like many building and construction companies, faced challenges in the face of changing economic conditions. But it weathered the storm and Branson’s guess for the future local economy is good.
“I see it as positive. People want to save energy and go green. This improves the market, ”says Branson. “We can assume that this will continue to be the case in the future.”
The company makes all glass except auto glass, which it discontinued in 1996 more than 20 years ago.
Branson thanks his customers for keeping an eye on him during the pandemic.
“Our customers are so important to us,” he says.
