Best Glass/Window Replacement (Residential) 2022: Solano Glass Company

A stray stone or a single mischievous or clumsy moron can ruin your day and the window of your home or store. Let Solano Glass save your life when glass becomes a pain in glass.

Solano Glass Company, located near Air Base Parkway and Clay Bank Road, has served Solano County residents and businesses for more than six decades.

While six decades may seem like ancient history to many, even something as timeless as basic window glass technology has changed over time.

“All new windows in residential and commercial (buildings) must meet strict Title 24 criteria with ultra-low-e glass products and thermally broken systems. These items definitely help reduce energy costs,” says Curtis Branson.

Title 24 addresses state building code regulations and energy conservation requirements by requiring all windows to meet specified criteria.

Solano Glass Company specializes in many types of glass, including glass for storefronts, residential windows, mirrors, shower doors, screens, and patio doors. They are also specialists in state regulations that many homeowners and business owners would find bewildering.

“We have many years of experience and are very detail oriented,” says Branson. “We pride ourselves on our professionalism.”

One of the ways Solano Glass Company’s business has changed is that it doesn’t do as much glass cutting and window framing on-site.

“We’re doing less manufacturing thanks to competitive manufacturing companies,” says Branson, who graduated from Fairfield High in 1976. “Plus, many manufacturers deliver their products directly to a jobsite.”

As it has been for years, Solano Glass Company is rated “A+” by the Better Business Bureau. It’s the ninth year in a row that the long-standing local business has been recognized by Daily Republic readers as the best in its industry.

Solano Glass Company, like many building and construction companies, has faced challenges related to changing national economic conditions. But it weathered the storm, and Branson’s guess for the future of the local economy is a good one.

“I see it as a positive. People want to save energy and go green. It improves the market,” says Branson. “We can expect this to continue in the future.”

The company makes all glass except automotive glass, which it stopped making over 25 years ago in 1996.

Branson thanks his customers for keeping him in mind during the pandemic.

“Our customers are so important to us,” he says.

These customers are quick to praise Solano Glass Company.

“Curt and the team at Solano Glass are amazing. I’ve used them to replace all the windows in my house over a three year period and I can say the job is outstanding,” says Loli Martinez Lonso. I’ve had no problems with any of the windows and I can see a difference in my energy bill and the temperature of my house. Their customer service is above and beyond. I highly recommend Solano Glass. Support the locals.
