Glass has its drawbacks, however. It breaks when accidents happen. Breakage or damage should not deter you from continuing to use glass material in your house. A professional glass repair company can help.
Tips to Consider When Fixing Damaged Glass
Repairing cracked window glass or other glass structures can be complicated or dangerous if you aren’t sure how to deal with it. Before attempting to fix any damaged glass, here are a few important things you should remember:
- The first step is to analyze the severity of the defect and try to identify its cause.
- Homeowners should not try to repair the glass to avoid accidents and more serious problems from happening.
- Different types of glass defects require different repair methods.
- Cases, where glass damage can be repaired, are not many. There are glass defects that are beyond repair.
- For the most part, temporary fixes that may be helpful can be done while you decide who to hire to replace the glass or window.
- While there are defects that can be repaired yourself, it’s important to be aware that this may only be a short-term solution depending on the damage that’s been done.
Some of the cases where repair is not possible include cracks longer than an inch, double-paned glass that have holes in both panes, or glass that’s broken into pieces. It is important to remember that cracked glass must be repaired as soon as possible, as small cracks can become larger in a short amount of time if they’re exposed to changes in temperature, moisture, or misuse.
In situations like these, it is best to get the service of Kelowna glass repair specialists to ensure that your broken glass fixtures will be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

What Glass Defects Do Our Kelowna Glass Experts Repair?
At New Town Glass, we repair a number of glass damages and problems, including the following:
Chips are little dings or blemishes on the glass. They are not quite the size of cracks but can become cracks if they are not resolved early. Chips can be caused by either impact or temperature, though the former is more common. They may remain chips but can sometimes spread across the rest of the window.
There are different types of glass cracks that can appear in your home’s windows, doors, etc., each with different root causes. Recognizing them can tell you what they mean for your windows and other items and how you can make sure that they are repaired properly.
An impact crack is the most common idea people have when they think about a window crack, for example. A baseball or stone that accidentally hits your window with a lot of force creates an impact crack. For this reason, repairs can be difficult and risky. Be extra cautious if you attempt to do an temporary repair on glass with an impact crack.
A stress crack is a small defect that usually starts at the edge of a window, door, or other structure. The crack has the potential to progress and do a lot of damage. It develops with opposite extreme temperatures on the interior and exterior. It can likewise spread across the glass over time as great variances in temperature between the outside and inside, as in the case of windows, occur. Stress cracks are common in areas with cold winters where the homeowners keep the house exceptionally warm. Stress cracks can also appear and worsen with the application of continual force such as slamming the window or door.
Detecting the stress crack early is important for a greater chance of repairing the glass. Delaying your action will make repairing the glass nearly impossible and you’ll have no other recourse but to replace the glass or window unit.
Pressure crack is the least common type of crack. It is the result of an intense or dramatic shift in pressure such as a swift change in weather or improper installation of the window or door. You’ll recognize a pressure crack from its curved shape similar to an hourglass.
