You have a lot of choices for glass repair and replacement in Kansas City. Let us make this an easy decision for you –  Janssen Glass has the experience, the service, the products, the expertise, and the customer service you want. Here it is in a nutshell. You will be happy with the service you receive from us. Our 99% Customer Satisfaction Rating gives us the confidence to say that without any reservations. Here are the reasons we are so popular for glass repair and replacement in KC

Local & Family Run 

We are a locally owned, family-run business that has been around since 1984. We have the employees and the experience to be the best in the business. From shower doors to glass tabletops, shelves, cabinet fronts and mirrors on the residential side to storefronts, custom entryways, and curtain walls on the commercial side. There’s no glazing job too big or small. 

Commercial and Residential Glass

We serve both commercial and residential glass customers. When it comes to commercial service, Janssen is king. For over 25 years we have been providing glass for entrances, storefronts, interior offices, and more. In our years of experience, there’s no building type we haven’t worked on from retail and low-rise commercial to institutional buildings like schools and hospitals to industrial buildings. We are members of ABC (Association of Building Contractors) and NGA (National Glass Association). All of our installation crews are OSHA 10 certified. While other glass installation companies bid on drawings and may not catch a mistake, if we see something that looks wrong, we ask the engineers at the manufacturer to be sure there are no design flaws. Catching it early can save our clients thousands and thousands of dollars. When you need experience and quality, you need Janssen Glass of Kansas City.

Because we have a residential glass division as well, we can create custom glass products for office or retail store spaces. For homeowners, we can repair glass quickly and customize any kind of tabletop, shelves, or mirrors you need. We also specialize in custom shower enclosures with frameless shower doors. From design to installation, we have you covered.

24-Hour Emergency Service

Our emergency glass repair services are available 24 hours a day. Break-ins, vandalism, cars crashing into the building, hail, etc. – no matter what happens, Janssen Glass is ready and waiting. We don’t just show up, we show up ready to repair the problem. We stock the most popular sizes for fast turnaround times. We stock standard commercial doors, frames & hardware, and keep a deep inventory of different types of glass for fast repairs. We can also cut glass on-site for custom sizes. In most cases, we can replace the glass immediately rather than board up the building.  In the rare case that we can’t fix it immediately, we have a 24-hour turnaround time on most common products. 

Best Products 

We use only the best materials from top manufacturers like Tubelite, Kawneer, Efco, Manko, and more. We have come to rely on their quality to bring you the quality we demand. Plus, you can expect the highest quality workmanship from Janssen Glass. We won’t disappoint.

Customization

Customization is our specialty. Whether for commercial or residential projects, we can create a solution that’s best for you. We can customize solutions for store entrances and doors. We will come to you, measure, discuss options, finalize a solution, create it, and install it. When it comes to residential, we shine there too. Whether you need glass tabletops, glass shelves, mirrors, shower doors, glass cabinet doors, or something else, Janssen Glass can make it happen. We can custom design any shape or size of glass or mirror you need. We will come out and measure the space, cut holes in the mirror for outlets if need be, and install it for you. Check out our mirrors, tabletops and shelves page to see examples. We custom design mirrored walls, complete exercise rooms, shower enclosures, and more.  

Speed

We work closely with our suppliers to provide the materials on time so your project doesn’t get held up and cost you more. We stock common sizes of commercial entry doors for fast turnaround. We also provide sliding and swinging doors and custom solutions, so we can provide any kind of door or door system you need. 

Because we stock a wide variety of glass (types, thicknesses, patterns, etc.) and we cut it right here in our full-line glass shop in Overland Park, turnaround time is impressive. We can usually have most residential projects finished within a few days.

Free Estimates 

We provide free estimates for any project, so give us a call, speak to our friendly staff and let us get started creating whatever it is you desire.

Decorating Mirrors for the Holidays

Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? This holiday season, forget about who’s looking in the mirror and focus on the mirror itself. Mirrors represent a wonderful opportunity to spread the holiday spirit throughout your home. Whether it’s a mirror above the mantel, in your entryway, or even your bathroom mirror, there are plenty of ways to add a little whimsy or make an elegant statement. It all depends on your home’s decor and your personal style. 

Amazing Mirrors in Minutes

We took to Pinterest to find the best examples of beautiful holiday decorated mirrors and we’ve gathered them here to share a little inspiration with you. The great thing about decorating mirrors is that you don’t need to spend a ton of money. Sometimes a simple evergreen bough and a bow will do the trick. Go as simple or as fancy as you like. See how many different ways you can add some seasonal style to your home.

Elegant Entryway Mirrors

Entryway mirrors make a statement the minute guests enter your home. Create a merry message, hang some ornate ornaments, or drape some gorgeous greenery. No matter how you do it, your guests will feel more festive and holiday spirits will soar. Check out these warm winter welcomes:

Mirrors on the Mantel 

The stockings are hung by the mantel with care, but there’s no reason to stop there! The mantel is the centerpiece of most living/family rooms where people gather to celebrate, share stories, and open gifts. Mirrors and mantels are a match made in heaven. Decorate an existing mirror or add one just for the holidays. Square, rectangle, or round, simply add some fanciful ribbon, greenery, ornaments, or lights and you’ve got a festive fireplace! Coordinate with other mantel decor like candles, garland, reindeer, and more. Make the most of your mantel this year with these great ideas:

Seeing Is Believing – Enhance Your Business with Glass

As a business owner, you take pride in helping the customers you serve each and every day. Whether you are a small business store selling clothing, candy, or computer equipment, the appeal of your store for consumers can be the difference between them stopping in and potentially converting into sales, or simply passing you by. 

Glass Doors and Windows Increase Foot Traffic

If your business relies on foot traffic, having glass doors at the entrance of your building or in front of your store, will help to pull those feet inside. It’s easy. Interest in your products starts with the eyes. If no one can see what you sell, you’ve just lost potential customers. The fact that the door is glass makes it possible to tempt that passerby to come see what caught their eye. By installing a glass door, you will be able to display your most popular or newest products immediately to those who are passing by. This is especially helpful for businesses that continually change their product offerings for varying seasons or holidays. 

Glass Doors Make Your Business More Attractive

Let’s face it. When a customer comes to your business, one of the most noticeable features is the front entrance. Every customer has to physically walk through the entrance to be able to explore the goods that you offer inside (we’re talking brick and mortar businesses here, obviously). You have to make a good first impression. You want to make it as inviting as possible to your type of customers. Because they are clear, glass doors have the added benefit of providing natural light which creates a welcoming ambiance that will beckon them inside. There are many different types of glass doors, so you can customize the look to fit what your business is about. From sleek and modern to country chic, your doors can say much more than you think. 

Glass Doors and Windows Help Signal That Your Store Is Popular

Another benefit is that with glass doors, other people will be able to see that your store is becoming popular when people shop there. Stores that appear busy will attract more shoppers, because they will be victims of FOMO (fear of missing out). All they have to do is look inside to see not only what you sell, but that it’s popular too.

Here at Janssen Glass, we specialize in providing beautiful and often elegant doors and windows for our commercial clients. We are happy to work with your business to install the perfect style door or windows that really speak to your customers and increase foot traffic and sales.

Call Janssen Glass & Door at (913) 677-5727 in Kansas and (816) 472-5330 in Missouri.

Top 3 Shower Door Styles

Your shower is your sanctuary. It’s your refuge from the chaotic busyness of the world around you. It’s where you wash away sleep’s residue or the stress of a long day. It’s your personal mini-spa, where you go to relax, unwind, and recharge. The timeless design of our specialized glass shower doors can be customized to match the fit and style of any shower. Our three most popular shower door styles include frosted, patterned, and heavy glass. 

Frosted Glass Shower Doors for Privacy

Our top shower door style for privacy is the frosted glass shower door. These doors are light enough to allow light to pass through the glass, preventing a darkened shower experience, yet the blurred visual effect provides a degree of privacy regardless of your home’s foot traffic. Our frosted glass shower doors can be customized to create a unique look for your bathroom. Whether you’re looking for fully-frosted glass, half-frosted, or patterned frosted, we’ll combine your imagination and our experience to create the perfect look for your shower.

Patterned Glass Shower Doors for a Unique Style

Your playful personality or unique sense of style will appreciate the look and feel of these patterned glass shower doors, with designs ranging from extravagant floral patterns to simple ripple designs. With a broad array of patterns to choose from, we’ll find the perfect fit for your bathroom’s personality. The pretty patterns offer just a touch of privacy and a whole lot of personality. 

Heavy Glass Shower Doors for an Open Modern Look

If you’re searching for a timeless look that won’t go out of style, heavy glass doors are what you need. Our heavy glass shower doors are our most popular style. Because these doors are made of thicker glass, they don’t have to rely on a metal frame for support so they offer a modern, minimalist appearance. Sometimes referred to as frameless doors, the open, clean, look that they provide adds an upscale feel to any bathroom.  

Call Janssen Glass & Door to help you create the custom bathroom that you’ve always wanted. You can reach us at (913) 677-5727.

4 Hacks for Cleaning Up Broken Glass

Here’s the lowdown on cleaning up broken glass. First of all, no one enjoys doing it. Let’s be real: facing the possibility that you’ll be picking shards of glass out of your feet, toes, hands, etc., is not the best way to put a smile on your face and brighten your day. Fortunately, the second thing you should know is that there are some simple hacks using household items that can help you clean up broken glass safely and effectively. Before we get into that, though, here are some things not to do:

Glass Cleanup No-Nos

  • Don’t use your bare hands to clean up.
  • Don’t walk around the breakage area in bare feet. Be smart, and protect yourself.
  • Don’t forget to thoroughly inspect the room where the breakage occurred for remnants of glass. When glass shatters, the force can propel shards further away than you’d think. Be sure to move around pieces of furniture in the vicinity for a more complete inspection.
  • Don’t use a broom to sweep up glass if you can help it. Pieces of glass can easily get caught in the bristles. If you have to use a broom, be sure to thoroughly clean it afterward so all of the pieces are removed.
  • Don’t dispose of the glass in the inside trash can. Take it out to the big dumpster. If you do use the inside can, let other household members know so they don’t accidentally cut themselves pressing down the trash with a foot or hand.

4 Simple Hacks for Cleaning Up Broken Glass:

  1. Use a Piece of Bread
    Stick the bread against the glass shards & they should cling to it. It’s an easy cleanup solution.
  2. Whip Out the Potatoes
    Another way to get the glass pieces to stick is using the fleshy insides of your standard russet potato. Simply cut the potato in half, clean up the glass, and wipe down the floor afterward.
  3. Something Else Duct Tape Can Do!
    As with so many other problems, duct tape can be the solution in this case as well. Carefully wrap the tape around your hand, with the sticky side facing outwards. Gently dab up all the glass shards, and carefully discard the tape. Voila!
  4. Vacuum It Up
    Using a vacuum cleaner, especially one with flexible extensions can save you a lot of time. It can also keep you safe as you clean up the breakage.

Feel free to use any of these four hacks the next time you have to deal with broken glass cleanup! If you would like to add glass to your home in the form of glass shelves, mirrors, tabletops, or shower doors, give Janssen Glass a call at (913) 677-5727, or contact us online.

What to Look for in an Emergency Glass Repair Company for Your Business

Emergency Glass Repair CompanyWhether you have a cracked window on the seventh floor of your office building or the front door of your store is shattered, broken glass often requires emergency services. When you have a situation with glass, you want to know that you can rely on a competent company that will show up at your Kansas City business within a reasonable amount of time, and they will be able to repair the problem as quickly as possible. The following are three things to look for in a commercial glass repair company for your business:

Common Sizes Always in Stock

When you have an emergency, you don’t have time to wait for someone to buy material for the job. You want a company that has a decent amount of inventory for most standard types of glass, doors, and hardware that might be needed to complete a job.

Ability to Do On-Site Glass Repairs

For sizes that aren’t standard, you want a company that can cut glass on site, and fix your problem immediately. If the display window of your storefront breaks, you don’t want to hear that your service repair company has to go back to their shop to cut the glass to size while your store remains exposed.

24-Hour Emergency Glass Service

If you have an emergency in the middle of the night, you shouldn’t have to wait until morning to call for assistance. A reputable glass repair company should provide 24-hour services for security, employee, life or loss, and other emergency situations.

At Janssen Glass and Door, we understand the issues that are involved with broken glass. We stock standard commercial doors, frames, and hardware as well as a deep inventory of different types of glass. We can even cut glass on-site for custom sizes. We offer our services 24 hours a day.
