Finding a broken window makes you realise how much you take them for granted. They provide not just light but warmth and security, and when one is broken, suddenly things in your house or premises are not what they were before. If you’ve never experienced a broken window before, you might be a bit uncertain about how to proceed, but you’ll certainly want the situation fixed. You will want the glass replaced, and normality restored as soon as possible.

Prompt Response

When you’re looking for a glass replacement service, the thing you probably want to know is how soon they can carry out the repair. If it’s a small crack you might not mind waiting, but if on the other hand the whole window has been smashed, it’s the middle of winter, and the window faces the street, you need someone who can fix it straight away.

Boarding Up If Necessary

When a window has been broken, one of the most important aspects is security. Even if the glass cannot be replaced immediately, for whatever reason, you may need the opening boarded up. When doing this, you need to be sure that the boarding is secure and solid, and that the people carrying out the work can do it properly, and will be able to secure your property whatever the time, day or night.

Glass Replacement                  

A glass replacement service needs to be able to supply at short notice the appropriate type of glass for your property. Domestic, retail and commercial glazing can be quite different. Some companies might only have experience dealing with residential properties, for instance. A better quality glass replacement service will have experience in all sectors, and be able to provide suitable replacements for all types of glass. Even if your requirements are for a relatively straightforward home repair, a company with wider experience will have a better knowledge of the trade, and will provide a better service.


A quality glass replacement company will have properly qualified glaziers. Their services should be recognised by insurers. It’s reasonable to expect that they have a straightforward payment system and will accept major credit cards, for instance.

If you are in the London area, Emergency Glazier provide services to residential and commercial properties, and will attend when called, within 30 minutes, 24 hours a days, 365 days a year. They offer a 24-hour boarding up service, same-day glass replacement, emergency joinery services, and are recognised by all major UK insurers. If you need quality glass replacement, you can rely on them.
