(Don’t take our word for it – explore testimonials from our happy customers!)
Glass repair isn’t something you have to think about often, thank goodness, but when you do need glass repair you might be feeling frazzled both by the situation you’re in (for example, a serious adverse weather event, a burglary or vandalism), by the idea of letting a stranger into your home to repair your glass door, window, etc. and finally, by not knowing the yardsticks on how to decide who is or isn’t a good glass repair contractor.
First things first: if you haven’t already done what you need to in order to keep safe until your glass repair contractor arrives, check out our blog on how to clean up the glass from a broken window so that you can keep the area safe until your glass repair technician arrives (or if you’d prefer, just keep away from the area and we will do this upon arrival!), and contact a glass repair company to assess the situation and find out whether you require emergency glass repair (more information here: Glass Repair – Is It An Emergency?). Even if the damage to the glass is minor chipping, it has potential to grow to something more major later, so your next step will be to choose a glass repair company; let’s talk about how to make the choice!
Are they qualified & accredited glaziers?
Not everyone who provides a service is qualified to do so, follows Australian standards or has training in the health and safety issues surrounding glass repair. Choosing an Australian Glass & Window Association (AGWA) accredited company offers the best protection for ensuring that your home or building is glazed according to the Australian Standards, and is an excellent way to protect you from financial cost of personal injury as a result of inadequate glazing work.
Glaziers in Australia will usually have completed an apprenticeship in Glass & Glazing and will hold TAFE-level qualifications in this field.
The Australian standards were introduced to ensure your safety, and they are an indispensable part of doing glazing work. We all know how dangerous broken glass can be, and without following the guidelines set out in the Australian standards your home might not be the safe environment that you expect it to be.
Security first and foremost
Safety 101: you wouldn’t let just anyone who knocks on your door into your home. So just because someone is on Gumtree saying they do glass repair or any other service, doesn’t mean that they are safe people to have in your home. Check that your glass repair contractor has a valid police clearance before letting them onto your property.
Westview Glass is very proud of the fact that all our our installers carry construction industry safety whitecards. This means that you can have confidence that your glass and aluminium repairs or installations are in safe hands. Our installers all have police clearance, as we know only too well that security is a concern for all our customers, and we do not let any of our glazing and installation team onto your property without them having a valid police clearance first.
Experience and reputation
Choose a glass repair contractor with many years of experience, and with great reviews. Not all glass repair contractors will be of the same quality, and what customers have to say is an important guideline for what to expect. Don’t leave this important job in the hands of someone who is inexperienced: cutting and fitting glass is a precise job that requires experience and skill.
Fast, reliable service
Especially in the case of emergency glass repair, you don’t want to be kept waiting – you just want the glass repair contractor to show up, act professionally and do a great job!
