Home Glass Replacement Services: Answers to Common Questions

In this article, I answer the most common questions relating to glass replacement services in your home.

What is the Most Feasible Lead Time?

The most common questions about glass replacement services in your home are usually based around lead times. When people break windows, they think it is of the utmost importance, and it is really urgent that they need to get that window replaced as soon as possible.

Now, as with a lot of glass products, we have stock glass in our factory, and we can cut fresh glass on the side of the truck and then replace the damaged one almost immediately.

But, when it comes to toughened safety glass or those odd items that we do not stock, we would need to order it. Sometimes, we have lead times of seven to ten days.

It is always quicker, so long as it is possible, that you can bring that frame into our workshop. If it is standard glass, we can repair the panel straight away.

What Kind of Information is Needed to Ensure Smooth Service?

One more important thing to take note of is that a lot of people come to us, requesting our services, without having the correct information, to begin with. This limited information makes it very difficult to quote your job. If you are reaching out to a glass replacement service, please ensure you include some helpful photos and some accurate measurements of the window or door that you need to be repaired. This helps us to have more of an idea of the work, and quote you quickly and efficiently, saving you time and money.

How Important is Clear Communication Between You and Your Glazier?

Over the years, we have done a fair amount of research on what a homeowner expects when a glazier comes into their home. First and foremost, they want you to be on time. They need to arrive when they say they will, and also keep you informed. Clear communication is of absolute importance here.

What Should You Expect Your Glazier to Be Like?

The glazier should be well dressed; they must be clean and tidy, and also provide homeowners with great and impressive knowledge and advice so that the homeowners can ensure that they have got the best product that should be installed in their windows, to ensure maximum security and safety.

In a Nutshell

All You Need To Know About Glass Replacement for Schools

Glass replacement services for schools is very important for our business. In this blog, I am going to discuss everything you and your school need to know about glass replacements in the Western Suburbs.

Timing

First and foremost, one of the major things that your school needs to consider when working with a local glass and glazing expert is timing. It is of the utmost urgency to get the glass replaced as soon as possible after a school window breaks.

Ensure Regulatory Compliance

Secondly, you will need to think about compliance and make sure that the business you choose to work with has all the appropriate documentation and insurances to undertake work on your school premises.

Ensure Adequate Knowledgeability

The third thing to look out for in your local glass service expert is knowledge. The glass company needs to be able to provide you with enough knowledge that can help you minimise glass breakages in the future.

Strict Adherence to Laid Down Policies and Acts

Any contractor or glass and glazing company that works at your school needs to adhere to the appropriate policies and acts. The first policy is health and safety. Staying safe and healthy should be front and centre on the list of priorities.

This entails that you should have a professional company that is fully aware of the risks involved with the work that they are taking on and completing. Also, the glazing company staff should all have Working with Children and all other relevant police checks. This is very important because these guys will be working in your school with your children and students. Do not for any reason underestimate that.

Then there’s the matter of insurance. Ensure that all of their work is fully insured and that they are completely compliant. You’ll also need to ensure that your glass services expert adheres to the relevant glass and glazing standards or building standards associated with the work that they are going to undertake.
