When it comes to home fixes and solutions that absolutely cannot be achieved via DIY means, the repairing and securing of glass is definitely one of them. Whilst you can put up a shelf and paint a room with the best of them, glass repairs of any kind require a higher degree of skill and training.
Here at True Blue Glass, we have that essential training, and we are dedicated to making sure that all homeowners don’t have to live with dangerously fractured or broken glass in their properties. The sooner you can get things fixed, the better. So that you are more comfortable and abreast of the situation, here are some of the steps that we take towards repairing glass.
Glass Repair Steps:
- The first step is to remove the broken glass in question. This is done safely by taping up the pane before moving it to avoid any shafts coming away and causing injury. If the pane is on an upper level of a property, then it’s usually procedure to remove any sash as well.
- We always strive to match the kind of glass that is being installed with the kind of glass that is being removed so that is still matches the rest of the glass on the property. In order to achieve this, we may take a shard away after the first appointment to compare it to our stock.
- There will be lots of newspaper and tarp taping to the inside and outside of the window area in order to catch any small fragments that might come away during the removal process. Regular fragments of glass need to be disposed of in the general trash, as window glass usually cannot be recycled.
- For more simple scratches and blemishes on glass, a less drastic approach is taken in the form of applying clear nail polish and other dedicated substances to fill in surface dents and bring them back to a brand-new looking condition.
