How to repair a broken glass window – we have all wondered about this at some point or the other. Door and Window glass has come a long way in terms of strength. There are now strict regulations to ensure that glass used in windows and doors is strong enough to sustain everyday thumps and thuds. In spite of this, there is always the odd accident that ends up in crashing a glass window or door.
The first thing to do in case of a broken glass window or door is to ensure that yourself, and the kids in the house stay away from the shards. Carefully sweep the area around the broken door or window and collect the shards that may have fallen around.
The next step is to make the broken door or window safe. For amateurs, the best way to do this is to tape the affected area with strong duct tape. When doing this, it is important to be very cautious and gentle with the broken glass. If the task of taping the broken glass is not performed gently, and with care, it may result in further breakage of the glass, and even injury.
After the area around the broken glass window or door has been cleared and made safe, contact glaziers in your area to ensure that your broken glass window or door is repaired in a professional manner, and is safe again.
