Florida Contractors and H.B.S., Inc.

 

As a contractor, you’re the first to get a call from a homeowner complaining that their window or door is leaking. And you’re also the first to get hit with a construction defect lawsuit when damages occur as a result of an inferior product. At H.B.S., Inc., we want to be in your corner to help you avoid these outcomes.

We have a lot of experience working with contractors, and we know how to help you get the best out of the window and door products you choose. You’re focused on building a home that meets your client’s needs. When it comes to windows and doors, you’ve got to balance a number of factors, including:HBS Glass CAD Drawings

  • Energy efficiency
  • Aesthetic appeal
  • Code compliance
  • Structural requirements
  • Budget

H.B.S., Inc. can help you with these considerations, and a few more. You can depend on our deep knowledge of windows and doors to help you make the right choice for every home you build.

Our engineering background provides us with the technical expertise to advise about the product performance of windows, doors, and other glass products—everything from water resistance to energy-efficiency. Consultations with our engineer have proven to be a great design resource for contractors in the past.

We’re Experts in Windows and Doors

H.B.S., Inc. can help you plan window and door openings in building walls with detailed shop drawings that include information about wall opening sizes, head height and interior trim alignments, and much more. These drawings have proved invaluable to contractors we’ve worked with in the past.

We can also offer expert installation from our highly trained craftsmen. They’ll install the windows and doors correctly the first time, meaning no call-backs and no surprise issues down the line.

We’re Your Code Backups

The buck often stops with the contractor when it comes to building a safe and functional home—for everything from plumbing and electric to structural and emergency egress. But no contractor can know every code, especially in Southern Florida, where our climate and extreme weather often leads to refinements in hurricane requirements.

You can depend on H.B.S., Inc. to know the relevant codes backwards and forwards. We stay up-to-date with the ever-changing wind and waterproofing codes and know exactly which products can meet and exceed the codes in which settings.

We Can Do What the Competition Can’t

A recent customer came to us asking for a 10’ tall sliding glass door beneath a 2’ transom. We immediately knew there was a potential for sagging with such a tall door and transom. And we weren’t interesting in putting in a sliding glass door that wouldn’t open after a few years. Most manufacturers won’t produce anything taller than a 10’, and so many distributors would’ve stopped there.

At H.B.S., Inc., we worked with the engineers and sliding glass supplier to design and build a 12’ tall door that met the clients’ needs as well as the technical requirements of the space. We love a good engineering problem, because it gives us an opportunity to show off the skills and knowledge we’ve developed in the industry. And we love meeting our clients’ needs in creative and innovative ways.

We even have a Florida Professional Engineer on staff to review structural strength issues for windows and doors which may relate to size limitations and assembly mullions that must meet the Florida building code.

We’re True Professionals

When you work with H.B.S., Inc., you’re not getting the “lumberyard” experience. We’re a professional window and door company that can advise you on the best product choices for every product—not a warehouse staffed by unqualified salespeople.

We have a large showroom where our knowledgeable team can assist the contractors and owners during the product selection process. They’ll be able to tell you about the advantages and disadvantages of each product when it comes to code, energy-efficiency, waterproofing, and more.
