Even with our kiwi attitude to DIY around our homes, replacing broken glass or installing double glazing is probably beyond the handyman skills of most of us. Hiring a glazier to do the glass jobs we need doing is the smartest move in saving us time and money, as well as avoiding glass related injuries.
Auckland glaziers are professional tradespeople who can do a variety of glass and glazier work for you including emergency glazing work, replacing broken window panes and custom cutting of glass. They can arrange the manufacturing and installation of coloured glass splashbacks and frameless showers. Pets are not left out as they can even install a cat or dog door. Because of their wide variety of skills, glaziers are easy to find and hire within our region, especially here at Builderscrack where you post your job and the tradies will approach you.
Using A Professional Auckland Glazier
Whether you live in Mount Eden, on Waiheke Island or in Silverdale, there will be a glass repairer near you or one willing to travel for your job. Finding the right glazier depends on the type of work you are wanting done. A specialised job replacing a large cracked high rise apartment window requires different skills and safety requirements than custom crafting a panelled stainless glass window for a front door. It pays to check if your job is within the stability of your glazier before hiring them.
There are professional associations for New Zealand glaziers, but they are not as well-known as the ones for builders. The Window Association of New Zealand, the Glass Association of New Zealand and the New Zealand Joinery Manufacturers’ Federation are all professional bodies which a glazier may be a member of. Members of these associations must meet and conform to the ethical, moral, experience and skill levels required, offering you as the consumer peace of mind about their ability to do their job.
