Our Process

At M&M Glass, we’re proud to offer our customers more than three decades of expertise and experience when it comes to their glass needs. In 1984, Robert Mitchell had a mission: to provide Baton Rouge with the best shower doors at the most affordable price with lightning-quick service. It wasn’t long before Bob and his son-in-law, Chris Van Pelt, transformed M&M Glass Company into the region’s premier provider of shower doors.  

This success prompted an expansion into custom mirrors and other forms of glasswork. With the same principles of affordability, quality, and speed, we’ve expanded our product line, developed our technical capabilities, and built an outstanding team. We dispatch our employees all over southern Louisiana to bring you the highest quality glass and mirrors. 

Today, our specialties are still heavy glass frameless showers and custom framed mirrors, but we offer many other products and services that we hope you’ll explore. From glass wine cellars to cabinets and shelving, our Louisiana glass shop can create a range of timeless custom pieces for your home or business.

What We Do

Whether you’re building your dream home or renovating your bathrooms with a custom design, M&M Glass can help. We work closely with general contractors, homeowners, and builders to carry out each glass project with precision.

One of our founding principles is impeccable service in a timely manner. We understand that every new build and renovation has a timeline. Our goal is to help you meet deadlines and stay within your budget. Because we complete all of our work in-house, this is easier to accomplish. The M&M Glass team is in control of your project from start to finish.


Our glass services

We may have started with shower doors, but our team does much more today. You can now add clear lines of sight and openness throughout your home with our wide range of glass and mirror products. For every project, we offer a variety of designs, glass thicknesses, and finishing details. Whether you’re looking for ultra-clear glass or textured pieces, we'll work with you to find the right option for your space.

Some of the custom pieces we can design include:

Our team measures your space exactly to ensure the perfect fit, adding any customizations you want. We’re meticulous about this step to ensure a seamless fitting product every time.


Designing your perfect project

Because we offer fully custom work, nothing is out of the realm of possibility. We offer sleek frameless mirrors for a classic look or framed mirrors for an added touch of style.

The possibilities are endless.

We can also design and create custom glass showers for our clients. Frameless shower enclosures make today's modern bathrooms appear larger and more elegant. On the other hand, framed showers offer a traditional look with a range of customization options. No matter which route you go, you’ll also have a variety of shower doors to choose from, including sliding, inline, and pivot.

The M&M Glass Beveling & Polishing Process

Built for safety

Our products are built to last and built for safety. For example, all of our shower doors and mirrors (and most other glass products) are made from tempered glass for your family's safety. If this type of glass does shatter, it breaks into thousands of small pieces that are less dangerous. Further, all of our products are mounted and installed using only the safest hardware and materials to ensure a permanent fit.

Our standard thickness for shower doors is 3/8-inch glass. For taller or wider showers, we recommend ½-inch glass. For glass shelving or tabletops, we'll suggest glass that's at least ¼ inch thick. For high-usage areas, we may recommend using glass ½ inch thick or more.

When it comes to mirrors, several other factors will go into making decisions regarding thickness. For example, our J-mold mounts typically fit mirrors up to 1/4 inch thick. Since they're custom-made, we can also design mounts for thicker mirrors or glass pieces.


Installation in your home

As soon as your order is ready, we will contact you to schedule an ideal time for installation. Our skilled team is highly adept at ensuring the quality and safety of your order. Most installations will take only take a few hours. Larger custom projects may take a day or more. From the outset of your project, you'll know what to expect.

You can trust that our team will arrive on time and clean up before we go, so you can start enjoying your beautiful mirrors and glass products the moment we walk out the door.

Our Warranty

At M&M Glass, we are so confident in our craftsmanship that we stand behind every single product we sell. Simply put, your satisfaction is our highest priority. With this in mind, our products come with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Our repeat customers often praise our commitment to excellence, which means your product should last for years to come. If it doesn’t, we want to make it right. We invite our customers to reach out to us with any concerns regarding the products we’ve installed. We offer service visits on any glass pieces we've installed in the past.
