After many years and innumerable E.G.S. doors being installed on the island of St. Croix, we were visited by 2 Category 5 hurricanes in 2 weeks. We saw winds well in excess of 200 mph with sustained winds over 180 mph for over 12 hours.
I will tell you this: When you are in your home and you think the world is about to end, and you do not think you are going to survive, and your neighbors house is coming apart and flying past you, and every tree on the island is mangled, broken and totally devoid of leaves, and flying past like you are in the wizard of OZ, you will be glad that you chose to have E.G.S. Doors .
Every door we installed came through unscathed.
After the storm when there is no communication and you are trying to get around, and every person you see that you put doors and windows in their home comes up to you and hugs you so tight you can’t breath, and thanks you so profusely it is humbling, that the only reason they made it and still had their house was because of the doors and windows you installed in their home and that they were worth every penny they paid and would gladly pay it again it makes you proud to be in the business we are in. It is all worth it after that.
I have had people tell me that during the fiercest part of the storm they would put their hand on the glass and it was void of any movement and they felt as though they were standing behind a steel wall and the noise reduction made them wonder if there was a storm outside. I have one customer whose house sits the closest to the eye as any house here, and it’s about 100 feet from the beach with the pool in between. It is up about 12 feet above sea level to the area where we installed 4 big sliders the waves were about 20 feet and were crashing upon the doors, and not only did they hold strong but they did not leak. They did have sand packed in around them so we had to take out the panels and clean out the sand and they are as good as new.
I want you to know that the word is spreading that this door is the Rolls Royce of sliding glass doors. Nothing else compares to it.
We have customers and architects that will put nothing else in their homes and are telling their friends who lost doors -and there at many- take a look at mine and go see Castle Glassworks. We look forward to what the future brings working with you and your staff in providing comfort and security to our brothers and sisters in our island home.
We are V.I. Strong and we will survive. Thank You for allowing us to represent your fine product.
Thank You, again.
When my husband and I selected EGS International’s Atlantic Series impact sliding doors for our condo remodeling (six sets of sliding doors including several fixed panels) 10 years ago we were confident that we chose the best impact sliders on the market because it was a decision backed by data. EGS’ impact doors were the hands-down winner in a point by point comparison of competing brands done by a friend, an engineer who chose EGS Atlantic Series sliding doors for the building in which he resided in Pompano Beach, FL.
We have had no worries about peeling or flaking paint on our doors. After 10 years the finish on the doors is the same beautiful finish as the day they were installed.
We thought we made the right decision 10 years ago. Now, after 10 years of satisfied ownership, we know that we did!
I happily write this testimonial for EGS International LLC. For the last 20 years I have installed EGS’s Sliding Glass Door systems in many Condominiums and Homes all over the Florida Coast from Palm Beach County to Miami-Dade County-High Rises installations such as the Venetian, Grand Bay, Casa Del Mar, Island House, Key Colony, The Sands, Grove Isle, Mar Azul, The Tiffany etc. I have seen close up the effects of two storms Katrina and Wilma battering homes and condominiums for hours and can attest to the benefits of an EGS installed product.
EGS door and window systems do what they promise in terms of wind protection and enable me as a contractor, to offer a luxury door solution to homeowners at a competitive price.
Multiple customized options like two-tone doors, luxury hardware, and screens make it a door that can appeal to every discriminating taste.
Designed specifically for the coastal condominium market, easy to install and manufactured locally makes their door an easy choice for me to offer to customers.
Again my thanks for what I consider the best quality sliding hurricane-resistant door patio door on the market
To whom it may concern:
EGS has completed three (3) projects for Coscan Homes, Inc. at the Point of Aventura. We have found EGS to be extremely responsive, timely, and flexible and to have demonstrated a high quality of care and workmanship.
Coscan was very pleased with EGS’s performance on the above jobs and would recommend them for any project.
WE LOVE WHAT WE DO,
