Residential Window Replacement
When you experience a glass breakage at your residence, time is of the essence. Our windows and glass sliding doors are an essential aspect of home security, keeping inclement weather, creepy crawlies and unsavoury characters out!
The sense of panic around fixing a breakage can lead us to make snap decisions when choosing a residential window replacement service. Do your due diligence when selecting a glazier as it is necessary to secure your residence.
For the same reasons that you want your windows fixed promptly, you’ll want your replacement service to be completed to the utmost standard, using the finest quality glass. You don’t want to pay for another callout and window replacement at your residence when that recently-replaced window cracks or shatters.
To answer the titular query: no, not all glass and window replacement providers will be insured, or have suitable qualifications. Anyone with an incomplete apprenticeship can apply for an ABN and start trading as a glazier, placing a few bogus referrals on their Facebook page to give an air of legitimacy.
So, how can you ensure that your residential window replacement will be up to par? There are some tell-tale indicators that your glazier is highly-trained and experienced in the field.
