How Much Should You Anticipate to Pay for Emergency Glass Replacement?

Despite the ubiquity of glass in modern homes, not many homeowners ever think they will require emergency glass replacement services. Hence, when a bay window breaks or if one or more panes of your French glass doors are cracked, you could be stumped as to what services you need to enlist. While some homeowners automatically assume that glass repairs are the best course of action, you should know that in some instances, emergency glass replacement would be advisable, more so if you are dealing with double glazed glass. The reason for this is that double glazing becomes structurally compromised when it acquires cracks or breaks, making emergency glass replacement imperative. So how much should you expect to pay for emergency glass replacement?

Which glass will be utilised for the emergency replacement?

The first factor you need to bear in mind when enlisting emergency glass replacement services is the kind of glass you want the technicians to use for this project. A blunder some people make is simply replacing their broken windows with annealed glass, yet this material is not durable. Certainly, it is cheaper to install. Nonetheless, annealed glass is vulnerable to impact, stress and pressure changes. Resultantly, you may find yourself requiring emergency glass replacement services prematurely. If you are looking for durability, it is best to opt for tempered glass since. This material is reinforced against vibrations, force and more. Conversely, if you want energy efficiency from your new glass, you could consider glazed solutions. It is worth noting that tempered glass is heavier than its annealed counterpart is, so you should expect the labour costs to be slightly higher too.

What is the extent of emergency glass replacement required?

The second factor that the technicians will take into account when determining the cost of emergency glass replacement is the extent of the work at hand. To begin with, the size of the glass replacements needs to be considered. As an example, the cost of replacing clerestory windows will be much more affordable than replacing sliding doors. Secondly, the glass technicians will also consider the number of glass structures that need replacing. For instance, if your locality has recently experienced a storm and you need to have multiple windows replaced, this project would cost more than one that requires a singular glass door replaced. Overall, the more time that the replacement project takes, the more money you should expect to pay.
