Atlas Glass Repair Company is one of the premier glass companies in Philadelphia Pa. We serve the city and suburbs seven days a week and offer commercial glass repair and home glass repair.
From time to time we detail a typical work week for the Atlas Glass Company:
Monday - The whole crew at Atlas Glass Company worked together on a new aluminum storefront and entranceway for a gym on Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia. The actual framing the the storefront was pre-built at the shop during the previous weekend. We showed up the job site at 6 am, did the demolition on the existing storefront (it's always fun to break out the sledgehammers on a Monday morning), installed the new frame out, then essentially plugged in the new storefront and glass door. Despite the complexity of the job we were finished entirely by 2pm. The last part of the day was doing a door glass repair in center city Philadelphia on Spring Garden Street by the Philadelphia Muesem Of Art.
Tuesday - We did a plate glass repair for a pizza shop in South Philadelphia not far from the stadiums. This was a fairly large window (eighty-four inches by seventy-two inches) and had to be angled in under a set of roll down security gates, something we see a lot of in the city of Philadelphia. It takes two glaziers to actually lift the plate glass and two more at the top to handle the lean of the glass and guide it under the gates. It's a precision type operation but something we done literally hundreds of times over the years. Other than this job it was fairly slow day as the phones were quiet. Sometimes that can be a good thing.
Wednesday - Today was a strictly residential glass repair day. We replace six fogged double pane windows in a really cool townhouse in Society Hill in downtown Philadelphia. It was one of those contemporaries with literally walls of glass that overlooked the Delaware River. Atlas Glass Company in Philadelphia is almost certainly the leading Philadelphia glass company when it comes to fogged window repair. With a three-man crew the job took about six hours to complete. The owner was very satisfied.
Thursday - A busy day, indeed: We started at 5am with an emergency board-up in center city Philadelphia. This particular commercial window was a large insulated (double-pane) window with both panes broken. Made from a certain type of blue-tinted architectural glass it had to be custom ordered, which we did. The owner of the building had called several glass companies in Philadelphia Pa and Atlas Glass Company was the only one to answer the phone at that hour. Next up was glass door repair that was also in center city Philadelphia. After a short lull in the action the emergency glass service calls started again - An older storefront window glass repair on Frankford Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. Older commercial storefront windows can be quite an ordeal sometimes and this one did not disappoint. After a three-hour job we headed back the the glass shop. Before we made it back we took a call for the same type of commercial window in Southwest Philadelphia on Elmwood Street. The glass repair was even more difficult and occupied the rest of the day. We finally made it back to the shop at 7pm.
Friday - Rain and high winds made it impossible to do any plate glass repairs so we boarded up one on Broad Street. We did do a glass replacement on a small residential window in South Philadelphia, though. Other than that it was a rather slow day.
