Whether you are looking to replace all your glass to a more energy efficient product or just wanting a small mirror for your bathroom – we can help!
We offer an onsite service where you can arrange a suitable time to meet one of our qualified tradesmen at your home to discuss options, or; for all of you DIY-ers, if you provide us with the product and the sizes you require, we can arrange to have the glass cut to size for you to pick up from our office.

Below is a list of residential services we regularly provide:

  • Removal of existing single glazed glass and replace with energy efficient products*
  • Replace outdated glass to a more modern style
  • Change awning/sliding windows to fixed panels of glass or vice versa
  • Adding dog or cat doors to existing window or door glass**
  • Add a balustrade to an existing deck, stair case or pool area – see our balustrade page
  • Update old shower screens, wardrobe doors or mirrors – see our products page
  • Glass for furniture protection
  • Changing solid timber doors to frameless sliding or hinged glass doors
  • Dividing panels
  • Replacing glass in fire or oven doors

The list can go on! We will endeavour to assist you with most glass related enquires; if you require something that is not mentioned on our website, please don’t hesitate to give us a call to discuss in more detail.

*NOTE: We can only change single glaze glass to a thicker style in timber frames only, not aluminium 

**NOTE: Holes for dog and cat doors can be cut directly into your existing lower pane window glass, however, cannot be cut into existing door glass, we will need to replace what is there to a toughened safety glass

We also offer onsite repairs and maintenance to many shower screens, doors or windows. If the product didn’t come from us originally, we of course cannot guarantee that we can fix the problem for good but we can assess the work to the best of our ability and provide you with our professional advice.

Below is a list of repairs & maintenances we regularly provide:

  • Shower screen services – i.e. replacement parts, new parts, adjustments, new frames
  • External or internal sliding doors that may be jamming
  • Sliding Wardrobe Doors that may be jamming
  • Glass that has dropped in windows, doors or shower screens
  • Re-seal/rubber windows or doors that are leaking or letting through air
  • Replacing one off panels in existing shower screens

*NOTE: We hold no warranty on any of our repair or maintenance work. We will provide a service as best we can to prevent the issue from reoccurring but we cannot guarantee this. In most cases, a lot of older parts are no longer in production so we can only provide a temporary fix for something that may need to be replaced altogether in the near future.
