Big Builders
Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal Looks at the
Nation’s Top Contract Glazing Firms


Ask most anyone in the construction industry and they’ll likely tell you that 2012 proved to be a better year than the recent years before. It’s certainly true for the majority of the firms ranked as part of the Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal magazine’s listing of the nation’s top contract glazing companies. In fact, many companies reported an increase in their backlogs for last year and are generally optimistic about what’s to come in 2013.

The information listed comes from a number of sources, including submissions from the companies themselves, industry interviews, as well as our own estimates. Annual sales listed include volume for commercial work only and backlog change refers to the increases or decreases in reserved projects since last year. This is included only when provided by the company. *When not available, annual commercial sales were estimated.
