Being New Zealanders we love to do our own DIY around our homes. With our ‘she’ll be right mate’ attitude, most of our projects turn out fine! But where there is a safety aspect involved and specialist knowledge we can’t learn from using Google, hiring the right tradie for the job is vital. That’s why when you live in shaky Christchurch, you need to hire a local Canterbury glazier who is able to complete your job safely, professionally and at an affordable price.
Whatever type of glass repair or replacement job you need doing, there will be a local glazier who can do it for you. Replacing broken or cracked windows in wooden or aluminium joinery, installing a semi-frameless shower screen, putting in a cat flap, installing a skylight or glass balustrade are all jobs a glazier can do. However with the wide range of self-employed mobile glaziers, small local glass companies and nationwide glass replacement companies within Christchurch, you may find that they specialise in specific types of jobs.
Choosing The Best Christchurch Glazier For Your Job
Often asking a glazier before hiring them for your job is a great way to find out the skills and experience they have, but so is checking out the reviews and testimonials that other customers such as yourself have given them. Here at Builderscrack we strongly support the move for creating a community of trust where each one of our users leaves a review of the work their glazier did for them on our website. This provides everyone including the tradie with feedback upon their work, communication levels and price, making it easier to pick the best local Canterbury glazier for you.
There is nothing wrong with asking to speak to previous customers and visiting their properties (with permission) to have a look at the work the glazier did for them. This is especially important where you have a large and costly job you want done, such as the manufacturer and installation of double glazed windows.
Many glaziers will also be members of the national associations available for their trade, such as the Window Association of New Zealand, the Joinery Industry Training Association or the Glass Association of New Zealand. While these associations are not as widely recognised and accepted as the building ones, they can help you find a glazier who takes pride in the level of professional work they do. Members of these associations are required to meet certain moral, ethical, educational and or experience levels, which give you piece of mind in that they are not trade cowboys.
A local Christchurch glazier will have first-hand knowledge and experience in dealing with earthquake damaged properties and will also be up to date in understanding safety requirements needed for the installation of new glass features and products within the region. But not only will they know the earthquake requirements for glass in Canterbury homes and businesses, they will also have knowledge about sourcing materials and products locally, cutting down on the transport costs passed onto you.
