Glass Options

Only glass allows you to bring the great outdoors inside.

Complete Window and Door Replacements offers a choice of glass options for its window and door products.

Glass plays an important role in the finish of your doors and windows since it directly affects appearance, energy efficiency and comfort.

Where you live is an important consideration in the selection of glass. Your location determines your climatic conditions and, in Melbourne, where the climate is cooler, most people seek to maximise solar heat gain for majority of year.

All glass is compliant with Australian glass codes.
