A typical emergency service call on a Friday night:
A call from a pizza shop with a commercial door that had its glass completely broken out. According to the owner the place had a break-in the previous night. I resisted the urge to ask him why he waited till 6pm to call a glass company to get it fixed and told him I'll be there in 30-40 minutes depending on the traffic as I had to make my way from center city Philadelphia to East Oak Lane (The Schuykill to the Roosevelt Boulevard extension during rush hour on a Friday - Ugh).
I pulled up in front of the place just before 7pm. And yes, the glass in the door was completely gone. This, however, was a good thing in my point of view - apparently it had been temperred dpor glass, the kind of standard sized door glass that all our glass trucks carry with them. After a quick measurement (31 3/8 x 76 11/16 x 1/4) my initial hope that it was a standard-size glass door was confirmed. I would be able to make the glass repair right there and then instead of returning to the shop to cut the new glass.
There was one slight technical problem though - several pieces of the aluminum trim which holds the door glass in place were twisted like a pretzel. Straightening out aluminum trim is possible but can be very time consuming. What should have been a fairly straight-forward, relatively easy job turned out to be a two and a half hour ordeal. However, when I was finished you couldn't even tell the trim had ever been bent. The owner of the pizza shop was very pleased with the job.
The owner seemed like a nice enough guy so at this point I gave into temptation and asked him why he waited until 6pm to call a glass company to get it fixed. He told me that they don't open until 2pm and that he had called two other Philadelphia glass companies and had left several voice messages.
It was raining pretty hard earlier that afternoon so I assume that had something to do with it, as many Philadelphia glass companies close during inclement weather such as rain, snow or high winds. Atlas Glass Repair stays open during bad weather but glass installations are at the discretion of the responding workers - we are a safety-first glass company.
