What do you need to know about window glass repair or replacement?
Repairing window glass is more economical than a replacement. Issues like scratches, chemical damage, cracks, graffiti and so on can all be repaired, within reason. Depending on the nature and size of the problem you may be expected to pay around £40 per panel. However, keep in mind that a call-out service may charge extra outside of normal working hours and on weekends.
When it comes to replacing window glass you should be aware that depending on the type of window you have it may not be possible just to replace a single panel. For example, with a sealed unit the entire thing will need to be replaced, not just the panel with the issue. Replacing a unit can cost between £30 and £80, depending on your location in the UK. You should obviously expect to pay more if your window is of a valuable make or design. However, you may well be covered by the warranty from when the window was originally installed, so be sure to check this.
It is important to look over the qualifications and experience of your tradesmen. They should be able to provide evidence of this, along with reviews from their previous clientele. Ask them about getting a warranty for your windows if you do not already have one. It is also important to make sure a tradesman is fully covered against accidental damage and liabilities before you agree to hire them.
