Glass Repair In Australia

Posted on: 9 July 2015

Quite often, most home owners think that when a glass is broken, the only solution is to replace the whole window. This is, however, not true as it easy to replace the panes of glass quite easily. Scratches and cracks can also be repaired easily. Glass or window repair is not only limited to windows that open and close.

Below a few glass repair types you may not have heard about have been discussed in brief:

Front door Glass Repair

Besides standard windows, front doors with glass panes can also be repaired from time to time. Front door glass panes can break or crack as a result of weather-associated conditions, accidents, and even invasions. The good news is that the front door glass or any other glass door can be repaired without necessarily buying a complete replacement. To save more money, a home owner can also decide to go for glass that has been recycled.

It is important to note that glass can be broken down and recreated so many times without reducing its strength. This can therefore be a good solution for home owners who want to save money when glass repair is involved.

Fogged Window Repair

Some homeowners prefer their windows and doors to have a textured or fogged glass so as to increase their privacy and to give their homes a unique look. The fogged glass is usually refractive and reflective of light and the arrays and textures in the glass changes the lighting of a house. These are some of the reasons why most people choose this type of glass.

It, however, becomes devastating when the glass gets a scratch or cracks making it unappealing to the eye. The good news is that this type of glass can be repaired thus restoring the original appearance of a house.

Kitchen Glass Splashbacks

Glass splashbacks are now the common trend in modern kitchens as they complement any new kitchen or kitchen repairs. Kitchen glass splashbacks are preferred by most homeowners as they are easy to clean and adds elegance and personality to the kitchen. Kitchen glass splashbacks are made from a material that is resistant to scratches and does not fade as the preferred color of the homeowner is applied to the surface next to the wall.

This makes the glass last for a long time. This, however, does not mean that the glass splashback cannot break. The good news is that it can be repaired and restored to its original look.

When considering glass repair, it is prudent to get professionals to do it. This is where a glazier comes in. A glazier is a person who deals with all types of glass work be it artistic, commercial or residential. Do not do the repairs on your own. Let a professional glazier do it for you.


Glass: Function, Form, Beauty and Design

Hi, my name is Shawn. When I was ten, I loved making mosaics, and as my dad worked with stained glass, we always had lots of small pieces of coloured glass around the house to use for my mosaics. When I was at uni, I took my glass passion a different direction and began blowing glass pipes. Eventually, I got older and begin thinking about glass from a functional standpoint as well as an artistic standpoint. I am one of the rare type of people who is just as interested in buying energy efficient double-pane windows as I am making glass vases, pipes or mosaics. If you want to read about glass or anything related to it, this is the blog for you. I hope you like my posts!
