When times get tough and you are in a financial bind, often we roll up our sleeves and do most of our home repairs ourselves. Where there are a lot of tasks around a home and even a business you can do yourself, there are certain areas of the home or business you will always want to seek a professional’s service for. One of those areas is glass. Glass repair or placements, is not a DIY kind of job. There are a number of elements that can go wrong and have longer term consequences. Today, M & M Glass would like to share why glass projects should stay in the hands of a professional glazier.
Dangers of DIY Glass Replacement
When you need to replace a broken window, shower enclosure or glass door, you may order and try to replace the glass yourself. Working with glass, especially large pieces of glass and the situation becomes very dangerous. There is a number of special equipment and tools used to safely work with glass. Handling glass alone can be very dangerous. Not only is working with glass filled with hazards, but if the glass is not installed properly, it can also prove to be a hazard. Improper installation of glass can also lead to leaks and improper sizing. To ensure safe and reliable installation, glass should be installed by a professional.
Handyman vs Glazier Replacing Glass
A glazier is a person who professionally cuts, fits and works with glass. A handyman is not a professional glazier nor are they licensed. When looking for a professional to replace broken glass, you may run into a handyman service that will offer to install your glass. However, there are risks of using a handyman service and not a licensed glass service. A handyman will not guarantee their work and often there is no warranty. If something goes wrong, you will find yourself paying for new glass and another installation. When hiring a professional glass service they not only guarantee their work, but there is also warranties. When hiring a glass service they also have access to a variety of glass types and have the ability to size and cut the glass to fit just about anything. Whether you need a glass door, window, railing or glass enclosure, a professional glass service will be able to measure and cut the glass to fit perfectly. Along with properly fitted glass you can get glass windows sealed to prevent air leaks which provides better home insulation. A professional glass service has a wide range of glass services including emergency glass repair. If a window to a door has broken, naturally you will need to have the glass repaired quickly. You cannot leave broken glass or a hole in your home or business. When you need glass repaired quickly and properly, a professional service is the best option.
