Storm damage? Vandalism? Accidents? There are many reasons why larger areas of glass can be damaged but what usually matters most is making the property secure before sorting out the who and why of how it all happened and what to replace the damage with. We will get to you straight away and help you decide the best and quickest strategy for getting your property back to perfect condition. That could mean boarding up, it could mean temporary panels, or it could be on site cutting of new glass – we don't believe in a one size fits all strategy because we know that every property is different and we respond accordingly.
Instantly securing your property against unwanted entry or accidental injury to your family is usually done by means of our emergency boarding up service. We fully understand the urgency of getting to your property and making it secure again but as window repair professionals we have also seen the damage done by over hasty boarding done by amateurs. Hammering a sheet of plywood into place by putting nails or screws straight into the door frame is only going to add insult to injury when you get the bill for replacing those aluminum frames. We avoid any further damage to your windows or doors by a system of wood patches fitting into the frame and secured by two by four to ensure nobody is getting through that. Once you're boarded up you have the breathing space to sort out ensuring that your property or commerce is safe while sorting out more extensive repairs at your leisure.
The problem with boarding is that while secure it is ugly and it doesn't exactly shout 'business as usual'. One solution we can deliver is a glass patch where we use a temporary replacement pane to fill the gap in the broken area while we prepare the final glass replacement. We'll help you decide whether to board or not the moment you call us.
Complete Clean Up
Part of our emergency repair guarantee is that we will totally clear up the damaged window or doors taking great pains to ensure that there is no hazard posed to family or clientele from shards of glass or even small pieces of glass splinter that may have resulted from the damage. We don't go home until it's spotless.
The unexpected happens in any walk of life and you don't need vandalism or an auto crash to damage your glass – a stray bird or golf ball will do the job surprisingly well. What you can do is plan for it which is essential if you are running a business that simply has to stay open. Talk to us about our tailored damage limitation plans in which we conduct a full risk assessment, advise on upgrades to your glass, and note the size and type of your panes so that if the worst happens we can simply call out your personal pane from the store room and get that glass fixed and ready for work right away.
