If you’re ready to cover a wall with mirror glass, team up with ABC Glass and Mirror for the quality, expertise, and courteous service your project deserves. Our team can work with very large sheets of mirror glass, and we also provide small mirrors in stock and custom sizes. So whether you prefer a seamless mirrored wall or a tiled look, we can work with you to create the desired effect.
It’s important to work with trusted professionals when creating a mirrored wall because properly fitting mirrors are vital to the overall look. Many homes include small structural irregularities, and a gap between the mirror and the wall perpendicular to it will detract from the beauty of the space. However, ABC glaziers make a detailed inspection of the walls and take exact measurements. This data is then used to cut your mirrors to the exact dimensions needed for a proper fit.
Customers can choose either polished or beveled edges when creating mirrored walls. On a polished edge mirror, the entire surface of the mirror is flat and level, and the edges are machine-polished to a safe and aesthetically pleasing degree of smoothness. The edges of the surface of a beveled mirror are cut to gently angle down to a thin polished edge. In addition, we offer mirror with metal trim around the perimeter.
If a “seamless” look is desired, we will cover the wall using as few separate pieces of mirror glass as possible. We can supply and install very large mirrors, such as 60” x 120”. In fact, what usually limits the mirror size is the access to the room – the mirror has to fit through the door! If a tiled effect is preferred, your wall can be covered with numerous small mirrors.
Additionally, ABC offers diverse installation methods for your mirrored wall. Most mirrors are attached to the wall with glue called mastic. This strong adhesive keeps the mirror in place, but the weight of the mirror glass also needs to be supported from below. At times, mirror glass extends almost to the floor and rests on the trim. When this is not desirable, we install L-bar or J-channel at the appropriate height and rest the mirror on this. L-bar yields a frameless look, while J-channel leaves a thin metal strip visible along the lower edge of the wall mirror.
For installations where weight is of special concern, ABC Glass and Mirror also offers 1/8″ and 3/16″ mirror glass. This thinner glass is lighter, which makes it suitable for applications where the mirror is being attached to a less hardy structure. For example, 3/16″ would be the best choice for mirror-covered sliding closet doors.
