Commercial glass replacement by a family of licensed glaziers
Speedie Glass are a family of licensed glass professionals who specialise in broken glass repair for cracked or smashed glass in windows, glass doors and storefronts and businesses throughout Brisbane, Ipswich and their surrounding areas.
Our licensed glaziers supply and install any type, size and thickness of glass, for replacement or upgrades to laminated safety glass. No matter what glass and mirror service you’re after, you want to make sure the company you hire installs to Australian Safety Standards to protect yourself from liability for future damages. We are a QBCC licensed member of Queensland’s Glass & Aluminium Association (GAAQ). You’re covered with us.
New glass installation requires precision and a thorough understanding of materials required. Therefore, we take the time to ask the right questions before we come to your place of business to make sure you’re totally satisfied with our work before we leave.
What to Expect When You Call Speedie Glass
When you ring us for glass replacement, please be prepared to answer a series of questions to help us save you time and money and ensure your glass is cut to size to fit properly into its frame. Questions asked include the following:
- Are you own the property or do you rent?
We need to know who carries the insurance and is responsible for paying for the repair.
- Is it a window or a door that’s been broken?
- In some instances, a window may look like a door, and a door a window. In our industry, a door is something you walk through. A window is a fixture that does not open in any way, shape or form.
- Whereabouts is the door or window?
There are national standards that regulate what rating of glass is to be used for different locations throughout a building.
- If the break doesn’t pose an immediate threat to your building’s security, is there any way you can close off the area until we can come out?
Be safe. Don’t touch the glass with your bare hands and don’t throw away any parts associated with the frame. We have equipment that will safely remove as much glass as humanly possible, and will use the saved parts when we replace the glass.
- Is the frame made of aluminium or timber?
- Are there steps leading to the door or window?
- What is the estimated size of the glass needed?
This is your personal estimation. However, the more accurate the info, the more accurate the cost estimate.
The answers to these questions affect the materials, time and labour involved. And sometimes it’s just too difficult to quote a job over the phone. In these cases, we’ll come out and investigate what’s needed before issuing an estimate.
How Long Will it Take to Replace My Glass?
It depends on where the glass is going and what type of glass is to be installed. Normal window glass replacement is a one-day service. Bigger glass may take longer to order and install.
Beware of Inferior Glass and Workmanship
Not all glass is actually glass. Some are inferior and do not travel well, exploding shortly after installation. We use only Australian-made, Australian standard glass and carefully inspect every piece before it leaves our shop.
Different types of quality glass serve different purposes for your safety and security. That’s why it’s important you hire a licensed tradesman trained to know the differences to handle your glass replacement. We are a QBCC licensed member of Queensland’s Glass & Aluminium Association (GAAQ).
Our work is guaranteed and every piece of glass is checked before it leaves our shop. However, if there’s a problem, we’ll come back and fix it at no extra charge as soon as possible.
If your safety is threatened by a cracked or smashed window in the middle of the night, we also offer 24/7 emergency glass replacement service, and owner Paul Neuman answers each call personally before dispatching sons Jason or Matthew to your home to repair your broken window or door.
