Wellington glaziers can do more than replace broken or cracked glass in your timber and aluminium windows, damaged as the result of hail stones or a neighbour’s wayward cricket ball! When renovating your home, glaziers can also install glass splashbacks and frameless glass showers. Having double glazing retro fitted is very popular during property renovations. Their multitasking abilities are why they are one of the most sort after tradies in the region!
Wellington glass repairers, or glaziers as they are commonly known, are often members of a New Zealand professional glazier association such as the Window Association of New Zealand, the Glass Association of New Zealand or the Joinery Industry Training Association. Non-member glaziers may have plenty of experience, professional development and training up their sleeves.

Is A Glazier From Wellington Your Best Choice?
Wind is a common factor within the Capital, no matter if you live in Eastbourne, Johnsonville or down the road in the Hutt Valley.

With frequent rain and the high potential of earthquakes due to our multiple fault lines, a glazier from the Wellington region is going to have the most knowledge about where you can safely install glass features such as glass balustrades, glass stair treads, glass doors and even skylights in your new or existing property.
Types Of Jobs A Glazier Can Do
Some glaziers are owner operated and may just have themselves or one or two employees. This means that they have probably specialised or are limited in the type of glass repair or replacement work they do. Quite often called a mobile glazier, a single operator business will operate from their trade van and home. Although they will not have a showroom for you to visit to see a range of glass products they could supply, you can still discuss and their experiences with using different types of glass or features.
Smaller glazing businesses will be able to do a wide range of jobs from replacing glass panes, installing frameless showers, cutting glass to custom fit a door or window or installing a cat or dog door.
Large regional or national glazing companies will have more employees, which broadens the range of skills and experience they bring to their jobs. More detailed jobs such as stained or patterned glass making and installation, custom built large window panes, automotive glass replacements, double and triple glazing and emergency glazing (depending on the circumstances) will usually be carried out by glazing specialists.
