Every now and then, everyone will run into the unfortunate situation where their glass artwork, window panes, or other glass features are cracked, broken or completely shattered. As unfortunate as it is, not all glass can be fixed or restored to its original condition.
Listed below are a few alternatives that you can use to bring your broken glass to near-perfect condition. In some cases it’s easier to replace the glass though, so keep this in mind.
“Is the broken glass a piece of art that is expensive and/or valuable?”
Not all glass can be repaired, but expensive pieces of art may be worth trying to seam back together with glue or by having professionals try to melt portions of it back together. Investigate your options and check with your insurance company to see if they will cover this type of repair.
“Is the glass a part of a family heirloom or otherwise holds significant value to you?”
If the piece of glass is part of a family heirloom or is otherwise very significant to you, then like an expensive piece of art, you may want to consider a repair option to restore it to a near-original condition. Your insurance company should be able to help you figure this out as well.
“Can it be replaced in any way?”
If the piece of glass or art is not significant to you and your family nor is it a piece of highly expensive or valuable art, then you may want to consider completely replacing it. The skill of repairing glass can be an expensive process and damage can be done to the glass if completed incorrectly.
Replacement of Glass
Due to the complexity of glass in certain features and installments, it’s not always that easy to repair glass. In those cases, it can actually be more expensive to have a piece of glass professionally repaired than it would be to replace it all together with a fresh installment.
