Unless you live in a tent or a cave you are probably going to need the services of a glazier at least once in your life. For many people, it will be shortly after a bad kick of the footy ending in a loud crash, or in the unfortunate event of a break-in.

Glaziers carry out all styles of glass services including installing new glass, repairing broken or cracked glass, and replacing damaged or older glass in homes, businesses, and strata buildings.

Windows

Many glaziers specialise in one or more areas such as shop fronts or window repairs, glazing for highrises and large commercial buildings, smaller commercial work, domestic glazing services, new installations, glass replacements, or glass services for the automobile industry.

How can a glazier help?

Your glazier can help with glass in a huge range of applications including:

  • windows
  • doors - glass panels as well as glass doors
  • mirrors
  • tables and benchtops
  • shower screens and doors
  • office partitions
  • shelving
  • shop fronts
  • balustrades and staircases
  • skylights
  • pool fencing
  • splashbacks
  • glass cabinet doors or panels
  • signage

Many glaziers also offer specialist services like the installation of pet doors or glass cabinetry manufacture, fit-outs and repairs.

What happens during glass repairs?

When you call to have a piece of glass replaced your glazier will carefully select the glass required making sure it matches the existing pane. Depending on the size needed or the style of glass, they will either custom cut the glass onsite or order the glass from a supplier.

If the glass is not able to be immediately installed the glazier may secure the window or door with a temporary covering.

Your glazier will securely fit the glass in place using the existing frame or structure. When replacing a pane of broken glass the glazier will ensure all the shattered glass is safely removed.

When to call a glazier?

Glass breakages can happen at any time of the day or night for many different reasons from a break-in to a stray cricket ball which is why many glaziers will offer an emergency glass repair service. The security of your home relies on secure windows and doors so call your glazier as soon as a break occurs to ensure repairs can be carried out as soon as possible.
