Why should you use an expert Glazier to install Glass?

Whether you are working with glass for domestic or commercial purposes, the end result of your project heavily relies on the workmanship involved. As when it comes to glazing, the quality of the end result doesn’t just refer to how it looks when the glass is installed, but also the strength and stability of the glass in the long run.

We highly recommend choosing a qualified glazier to repair or install glass into your home or business. O’Brien® Glass professionally trained glaziers strictly comply to high service standards and protocols, will consider individual requirements, and can provide a comprehensive service – solving your problems with ease and care.

Glaziers without qualification or proper training are more prone to mishandling of glass products and could compromise the quality of the glass installation. For instance, glass breakage may occur if the glass panel is not handled properly during shipment and installation, which may lead to minor damages to the glass such as nicked or chipped edges. Without glazing knowledge, you may not be able to spot this until the glass is exposed to a number of factors including fluctuating temperatures, where they could develop into a chip or crack.

Reputable glazing companies should also have a strong working relationship with leading manufacturers. This ensures that the glass you’re getting is carefully selected and installed for AS1288 compliance. While a cheaper alternative may seem to be a better deal at first, it cannot ensure you great quality. For instance, internal glass defects that are not visible to the naked eye may develop during the glass-manufacturing process. When heated, the defects can change the structure and size, creating internal pressure that may cause shattering of glass. The glass replacement will probably cost more than getting a quality glass product and installation in the first place.
