"Emergency glass repairs can only be done when the broken glass to be replaced is either a plate..."

Emergency glass repairs can only be done when the broken glass to be replaced is either a plate glass window, or a standard tempered glass window.

Regarding residential glass repairs, if the window glass to be repaired is plate glass, the glass company can cut size the window glass to fit the opening on site. You will have to wait 3 to 4 days until your window repair can be delivered if you have an insulated window.

You will need an emergency board service until glass repair service can be installed. Patio door glass or any door glass for the fact by law needs to be safety glass. Safety glass can be either tempered glass, or laminated glass in which case tempered glass will have to be ordered and usually takes 2 to 3 business days to receive.

Some tempered patio door windows are standard sized, and are stocked by emergency glass services. When the patio door glass is insulated more variables come into place when determining whether or not the broken glass repair can be done immediately or not. Grids patterns need to be matched, also identifying if the broken glass is low-e or not can cause delays in getting your door glass repaired.

If the overall dimensions and thickness of the broken window glass are off even by the tiniest fraction, the glass repair service can be compromised. If the new door glass window is too small the glass will not seal to the frame, and water will leak through the opening causing water damage.

Finding an emergency glass service that is actually an emergency glass company can be difficult. We’ll save you valuable time, and if an emergency window glass repair is an option, we will gladly give you some emergency glass company telephone numbers that actually answer their calls.

If you can’t get your window repaired right away, The Board up Company will provide you with an emergency board up until glass repairs can be scheduled.

Commercial Glass Repairs

Commercial Board Up Service Usually emergency commercial glass repairs can not be done safely after normal business hours.

Emergency commercial glass repairs can only be done when the broken glass to be replaced is either a plate glass window, or a standard tempered glass window.

For example regarding commercial glass repairs, if the window glass to be repaired is plate glass, the glass company can cut size the window glass to fit the opening on site.

If you have an insulated window, you will have to wait 3 to 4 days until your window repair can be delivered. You will need an emergency board up until the glass repair service can receive the glass to install.

Any door glass by law needs to be safety glass. Safety glass can be either tempered glass, or laminated glass in which case tempered glass will have to be ordered and usually takes 2 to 3 business days to receive. If your door glass is not a standard size, you may opt for laminated glass unless you have a mail slot in the door.

Any broken glass to be repaired that is set within 18" of the ground will have to be tempered, or laminated.

Commercial Board Up ServiceAny broken glass that is set next to a door will also need to be safety glass.
Tempered windows will take about 2 to 3 days to receive. You will need an emergency board up service until that time.

The measurement of the glass thickness and spacer thickness in the window glass frame has to be precise. The glass repair service can be compromised if the overall dimensions and thickness of the broken window glass are off even by the tiniest fraction. If the new door glass window is too big it will not fit into the frame. And water will leak through the opening causing water damage if the new door glass window is too small the glass will not seal to the frame.
