Atlanta Glass and Mirror at Quality EnclosuresConstruction Resources’ Atlanta Glass and Mirror is always staying on the latest trends in our growing industry. Recently, team members visited Quality Enclosures in New York to find out more about sand blasting on glass and its capabilities.

There, the team learned that new automatic blasting technology can create endless designs and achieve great detail. Quality Enclosures also taught the group that public demands for thicker glass, such as the new 1/2-inch Starphire glass doors, over the standard 3/8-inch glass is growing. In New York, customers are requesting the Starphire brand, also known as Ultra Clear, because it has a clean and clear edge instead of the traditional edge found in 3/8-inch standard glass. The team saw that this process was achieved by lower iron content in the substrate.

Atlanta Glass and Mirror is excited to share this information with customers that have already been interested in Starphire glass doors and with those that do not yet know about the brand. Benefits include a very clean and crystal clear surface, added integrity and a straighter installation because the product has less of a chance of bowing. Additionally, Starphire glass doors are outfitted with solid brass eight inch handles over the six inch hollow handles. Again, this gives a new experience of excellence over the standard 3/8-inch glass units.

In New York, the group also underwent a training session on HydroShield. This is glass protection that closes the “micro pores” and makes the glass super slick, not allowing water and soap containments to attach to the glass. Also, HydroShield glass protector on the front and back of the door assures that the door will stay bright and haze free, with proper care. Atlanta Glass and Mirror will now be offering HyrdroShield in its premier line, so ask for it on your next order!

Atlanta Glass and Mirror appreciates Quality Enclosures for allowing their team to stop by for a visit and looks forward to sharing new products with customers. For more information on Atlanta Glass and Mirror and Construction Resources, visit www.crhomeusa.com.

Virginia-Highland Tour of HomesConstruction Resources is excited to announce that its kitchen and bath products will be showcased in Virginia-Highland during the 20th Annual Tour of Homes Saturday, Dec. 6 and Sunday, Dec. 7. Celebrating interior design and architecture, the tour will feature eight gorgeous properties, seven homes and one historic church.

Construction Resources contributed to three of these homes. In one, the company installed black pearl honed granite in the kitchen and laundry room and white Carrera marble on the island and in the bathrooms. In the second, lagos azul limestone was put in the kitchen while white Carrera marble on the island and in the bathrooms makes the home bright. The third home has mineral black soapstone in the kitchen, Colorado mist marble on the island, jet mist granite in the laundry room and boy’s bathroom and Carrera marble in the additional bathrooms.

Each stop on the tour boasts a unique history, enhanced by the personal touch of each owner. One of the most memorable homes, 1141 Lanier Blvd, is a custom, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Prairie style home with a brick and limestone exterior, complemented by extensive interior woodwork, a gourmet kitchen, wine cellar and fully equipped gym.

Part of the beauty of these homes is the range of new construction paired with history, making each home completely unique. 789 Brookridge Drive has been completely remodeled and has quadrupled in size since its construction in 1925. Now featuring three floors and nearly 4,000 square feet, this home has preserved its original front façade and other structural features, allowing it to span the decades as a modern home with a vibrant history.

Local restaurants and vendors will offer tastings at each home Saturday and Sunday between noon and 4:00 p.m. Tickets are available online for $25 each and may be purchased through Friday, Dec. 5.

The Virginia-Highlands Tour of Homes is organized by the Virginia Highlands Civic Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to community development. Funds raised by the Tour of Homes go toward construction or improvement of neighborhood parks, sidewalks, safety and other community projects.

To buy tickets, view a map of featured homes or find out more details about this year’s Tour of Homes, visit www.VaHiTourofHomes.org. For more information about Construction Resources and the products and services it offers, visit www.CRHomeUSA.com.
