Frequently Asked Questions
Are your glass products tempered safety glass?
All of our glass products are built to meet or exceed safety building codes. The glass panels in our doors
and sidelights include tempered safety glass, as required.
Why are you only offering Mahogany and Alder products? Why don't you offer more wood species?
Offering only these two wood species satisfies 95% of our market demand and allows us to be far more efficient.
This also allows us to ship faster and to offer much lower pricing on our products.
What wind load products do you offer?
We do offer touch-up kits for our different finishes.
Many of our current door and window products have wind load ratings for coastal installations.
Please visit our Product Performance Ratings page to find our current wind load information.
What stains do you offer? Can I get a touch-up or staining kit?
We offer two different finishes, Traditional and Distressed for our wood door products.
Go to our Mahogany and Knotty Alder Finish page to view the available finishes. For our Premium Fiberglass door,
the Estate and Artisan Collection, we have several different wood grains and color finishes available.
Go to Estate Fiberglass Finish page to view the options, and visit the Artisan Fiberglass Finish page

Can I have products drop-shipped from you directly to my customer?
We will only ship our products to our customer. This allows you to inspect and review the order, and ensure that each order
you receive meets your expectations and are free of freight damage.
If you prefer that we ship directly to your customer on your behalf, we can assist you in arranging for a third-party shipment.
At the time your order is ready to ship, our customer service staff will contact you with the shipping class, the weight,
and the number of pallets on your shipment so that you can notify your transportation company in order to prepare the bill of lading.
We will need you to fax to our attention, a copy of your bill of lading and anticipated pick-up date, so we can release your shipment
when your carrier arrives. We do not offer a pre-paid and add freight program for shipments drop shipped to a third party location.
How do I get a company customer number and password to participate in your e-Order, GlassCraft's online customer portal?
All GlassCraft customers are given a customer number once their account becomes active. Currently, all active customers with
an email address in our system have been assigned their own password to allow them access to our e-Order site. If you have not
received a password, please contact your GlassCraft Customer Service Representative.
I have not received a confirmation for the order that I faxed; nor do I see my order in my e-Order page. What should I do?
We have a process control system in place to ensure that all orders that we receive are confirmed by return fax within 24 hours
of our receipt, and the confirmations have been sent to the correct fax number. New orders are entered in our order processing
system within 24 hours of receipt. If it's been more than 24 hours, please refax your order and write a note on the PO information
us that you are resending the order.
