What to Do If You Need to Get Glass Replaced on Your Property

Even if you are a hardcore DIY-er, there are still a few things that you cannot do on your own and shouldn’t attempt to. Glass installation is one of those things. When looking for a professional, don’t forget to go over their experience and reputation in the market, and it’s also important to research your local area for the right team to look after the job.

Getting an Accurate Quote 

Glass installations and repairs don’t come with a flat fee. A professional, like Simon’s Glass, will first have to inspect what’s going on and write you a quote based on the glass’s size, the location, time needed, etc. 

If you’re on a budget, you can compare quotes from a multitude of companies and go with the one you’re most comfortable with. If the replacement is urgent though, make sure not to miss out on the minor details when getting the right team to do it.

What’s Involved in a Replacement

Precision is key. Double-checking measurements for panels is the trickiest part of the task, but getting it right streamlines the replacement process. Some of the most important tools & PPE used by glaziers are: 

  • Rubber coated gloves
  • Tape measure 
  • Cotton towels and glass cleaner 
  • Caulking Gun
  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Denatured Alcohol
  • Clear Silicone Sealant
  • Straight-edged Razor Blades
  • Closed Cell Double-Sided Adhesive Glazing Tape

Vandalism, accidents, and extreme weather conditions can leave you with broken glass doors, windows, etc. For this, you may need to use an emergency glass installation service.  Emergency contractors will give a quick assessment of the property, with a swift replacement and installation. It’s dangerous to have broken or shattered glass around but also a worry that no one wants to have.

 Repairing Scratches and Chips in the Glass 

While you can repair scratches and chips in the glass, it depends on several factors like the depth of the scratches, age of the glass, etc. In some cases, it is often best to replace the glass instead of repairing it. At Simon’s Glass, they are happy to help you with your glass replacement inquiry, even if it is as small as a chip or scratch, as these tend to only get worse and in some cases, scratch removal may affect the visibility through the screen.
