What is a glazier?

How a professional glazier can help you

A glazier is a highly experienced tradesperson who specialises in a range of glass services including cutting and installing glass, glass replacements, and glass repairs. Glaziers must have exacting attention to detail to take accurate measurements ensuring a perfect fit, cut glass to size, and carry out the glass fitting.


Glazier skills and services

Glaziers are also skilled in selecting the right style of glass for each application in line with the relevant Glazing and Glass Industry Australian Standards, whether it be a new installation or repaired or replaced glass. Choosing the correct type of glass can assist with insulation, shade, and security, as well as provide long lasting repairs.

If you have a broken window your glazier will carefully and safely remove the broken glass, measure, cut and fit new glass. A professional glazier can also fit locks, hinges, door handles to the glass, and work in all styles of frames including timber, aluminium, and steel.
