What to Look for in a Glazier

by | May 4, 2018 | Glazing

Everyone wants the glass windows in their home to look as nice as possible. For those of us that want this while also having slightly heftier wallets than most, there are the glaziers. These are people specially trained for fitting and customizing glass pieces around your home. Whether it’s adjusting the glass that’s already present or fitting brand new windows or other assorted glass where such is required. Installing or repairing glass is a very risky task, very easy to mess up and result in injury, and should thus only be handled by trained professionals. But what should you look for in a Glazier? If you’re wondering that as you scan through the various glaziers in Farnham, let this article serve as a handy guide.

#1. Fair price
Take a good hard look at the prices offered by the glazier you’re currently considering. Does the price of the service match that of the service itself? Glaziers are expensive, yes, but not so expensive that the smallest installation job should cost hundreds of dollars on its own. At the same time, since the price will sometimes be up for discussion and negotiation, try to offer a fair price to the glazier if you’re genuinely satisfied with the work they’ve done.

#2. Professional demeanour
When you approach a glazier to speak to them about the job, ensure that you are strictly approaching a professional, who takes the job seriously 100% of the time. This does not mean you should end a discussion if the glazier in question keeps good humour about their job, as humour can be a sign of maturity and professionalism. However, when it’s business time you should expect your glazier, like any professional, to get right down to business. So, if you want to ensure that you’ll be working with a professional when hiring your glazier, there are few more effective methods at deciding this, than a face-to-face meeting.

#3. Able to answer questions
By far the most effective way to determine if a glazier, or any professional really, is worth your time, is to ask them any question about their work that comes to mind and gauge the quality of their answer. A professional, experienced glazier will be able to answer all your questions without batting an eye. Turning on a dime to any subject your questions bring them to, and, forgiving the occasional stutter and slip of the tongue (they are still humans after all), able to answer them clearly and specifically. If they are unable to do any of this, then that should serve as a clear sign that you are not dealing with a professional, and you should take your business elsewhere.

If you want a glazier that passes all three of the above gauges with flying colours, and are thoroughly skilled at what they do, look no further than the professionals over at Allways Glazing Works.
