Aluminium Window Fabricators vs. Glaziers: What Is the Difference?

Winter is almost here, and your outdoor pergola area that’s been in use all summer is starting to look like it could be an excellent fit for the cold months as well – if only there are a few ways you could utilise this space during the winter.

To achieve this, you may want to get quotes from glaziers or aluminium fabricators. Also, you might need help picking between an aluminium fabricator and a glazier.

In this article, I’m going to share tips that make the process of getting quotes easier and the difference between an aluminium fabricator and a glazier.

Quote Hacks

To get quick and accurate quotes from any company, it is essential to have the following:

  1. Know Exactly What You Want: Many people don’t have a clear idea of what they want at the time they call a construction company. This can lead to delays in getting the quote as the staff tries to find out exactly what you want, or a misquote, where they don’t get the picture clearly.
  2. Have Exact Measurements: In this business, size matters. The size of the products you need to inform their prices, so if you don’t have exact measurements, you can get a delayed quote or a wrong one.
  3. Know What Your Budget is: When you don’t have a figure in mind, it’s easy to get swayed by sweet talking construction staff. You end up saying yes to everything and get a quote you can’t afford. When you know your budget and state it up front, the staff is going to give suggestions based on your budget without any unnecessary delays.

Aluminium Fabricator or Glazier?

Now that you know how to get a quick and accurate quote, let’s move on to which of the two handymen you’ll need. This distinction goes back to having a clear picture of what you want.

An aluminium fabricator is best if you want opening windows and doors because they’re set up to complete this task. They’re used to making open-able and operational windows so that they will work perfectly with your outdoor pergola area.

A glazier, on the other hand, is the best option when you’ve already built your door and window frames and need some glass installed into the opening. This is the primary function of a glazier; supply and installation of glass. We can help you with that; we can cut the glass up and install it for you.
