Glass Doctor of the Heart of Texas installed 26 windows at a newly renovated house in central Texas that will be featured on the HGTV program “Fixer Upper” May 22.
The installed windows, which replicated windows of the period home, are seven-and-a-half-feet tall and 36 inches wide. The 26 windows took four days to install and required a crew of three Glass Doctor specialists.
“The install was a little strange with all the cameras and film crew members around but it was a great project and we enjoyed being a part of it,” says Doug Dotson, owner of Glass Doctor of the Heart of Texas.
The turn-of-the-century home has 10-foot ceilings, making the installation on the second level of the home the most difficult part.
“The windows were very heavy and we had to go up to the second level of the home,” said Dotson. “We used a mechanical lift to assist the glass specialists with installing the windows.”
The entire project from ordering of the windows to installation took a total of 10 days.
