Why do insulating units
constructed by Tory Hill Glass make a custom project
Tory Hill Glass
believes the custom millwork companies know what
they require to complete a finely crafted
project. We suggest receiving daylight opening
sizes as well as glass sizes.
For other projects
Tory Hill Glass can offer advice on glass types
and construction for residential and renovation
projects requiring specific dimensions for new
or replacement units.
Do you require a minimum quantity of units?
No project is
too small but larger projects have greater
flexibility ordering special glass types and
some spacer selections.
What if I have a few larger
than 3-square feet units on a mostly all under
1-square foot unit project?
Tory Hill Glass
strives to provide a single-source liability. In

When should we order our custom insulating glass?
insulating is slightly different than ordering
production glass. Tory Hill Glass strives to
produce the required units in a timely manner.
We work on projects as they are ordered,
however, glass types and specialty spacer can
add time to completing projects. We suggest
checking our schedule at the time of project
Do you have your insulating units tested?
Yes. Tory Hill
Glass continually has units in various stages of
testing. Regular customers have been sent copies
of the most recent results. In addition to these
results, Tory Hill Glass performs other testing
of the products used as well as the overall
longevity of their units.
How do you select the length of warranties?
We base our
warranties on industry standards. Though our
units have time and time again shown they will
continue to perform beyond these periods, we
keep the millwork and contractor in mind.
Typically, they do not want to be tied to
unrealistic warranty periods requiring the
possibility of returning to a job twenty years
later. After all, their work is much more
demanding at the time of a replacement.
