There are a lot of different types of glass in your home, from windows and doors to tabletops, shower screens and picture frames. There are also a number of ways that glass can get damaged, from a chip or scratch right through to being completely shattered.
Very often glass can be repaired, if it’s not a completely shattered pane of glass or other extreme damage. That said, glass repair isn’t a job that we’d recommend as a DIY job, if you want the glass to be sturdy in the future.
DIY glass repair
There are certain types of broken glass that can be repaired at home, using an adhesive and epoxy – but it’s important to choose the right products and to take a lot of care when handling broken glass. Nobody wants a slashed finger when you’re trying to repair glass.
If your broken glass is more than just a chip or doesn’t have a clean break then we’d always recommend hiring a professional glazier to repair the glass for you. Fixing broken glass can be dangerous as you’re dealing with glass shards and very often there are tiny fragments of glass that are almost impossible to see.
