Why consider a protective glass table top? Protective glass table tops can benefit young families in the Fairfax area as well as anyone with a treasured wooden table. Of course, a glass table covering shields the vulnerable wood surface. This is attractive to parents who want their children to be able to paint or color at the dining room table without staining the wood. Even if there are no toddlers in your household, you may be concerned about an antique or specialty table top. If you want to use your valued piece without worrying about damage from spilled food, cups of hot coffee, and so on, consider adding a layer of glass. Why else might a glass table top be added? Glass table tops can also be used to give new life to old or worn tables.

  • A glass table top can serve as a replacement for finish that has been worn down, leaving the wood susceptible to water damage.

  • A covering of glass can freshen and update the appearance of the table.

  • A glass table top will add brightness to a dull surface.

This is a distinctive look that is appropriate for a variety of applications and interior design themes.

Is annealed glass or tempered glass used for table tops? Glass table tops that serve as coverings for other surfaces are usually made out of regular annealed glass. This is suitable for an application where the glass is supported by another surface. On the other hand, if you need glass that will function as a table top in its own right, we will use tempered glass, which is stronger. Tempered glass differs from annealed glass because it has undergone a heating and cooling regimen that enhances durability and causes it to form less dangerous fragments if broken. Are there any other variations in table top glass? Glass table tops can be further customized to match the décor of your Fairfax, VA home when you choose from our assorted thickness and edge options. Depending on the specific application, we offer thicknesses including –

  • 3/16”

  • 1/4" (most common)

  • 3/8”

  • 1/2"

  • 5/8”

  • 3/4"

Moving on to edge choices, we can do polished edges, pencil edges, beveled edges, and more. The combination of your choices for glass style, glass thickness, and edge contour coalesce to form a glass table top that is personalized to add just the right burst of elegance to your room. Where in a house might glass table tops be used? Glass table tops are found in many different rooms. Where to use one in your home depends on your practical needs and the style of the dwelling.
