There are countless reasons why you may need to replace or repair a window, but how much does it cost to repair a window? Anyone with kids will understand that a smashed window is inevitable. You can never predict when a rock might fly out from underneath a lawnmower to create a small ship in a pane of glass.
Once a window is damaged, it’s a good idea to look at repairing it as soon as possible. You might be able to prevent a smaller chip or crack from spreading. Attending to a smashed window will help secure your property sooner, whilst making the area safer for family, pets and the public.
It’s a hard question to answer because every repair job is different. While we try to give you great advice here, the only way to really know is to contact us for a quote on 0407 577 787.
How Much Does It Cost To Repair A Window?
Unfortunately every repair job is unique. While there may be standard sizes, you need to remember that your home is different to your neighbor’s house. And within your home, there are windows of all shapes, sizes and set around different materials. Different areas of a home often require a certain style of glass from frosted in a bathroom, safety glass in sliding doors, and double-glazed windows in living areas.
The time of day and week will also need to be considered. At Big Kev’s Glass, we offer a very competitive 24-hour, 7-day Emergency Service, where we can usually repair a window, or at least make your property secure in only a couple of hours. However, like with most after-hours work, there may be an additional cost involved.
We’ve touched on the fact that different glass repairs are priced differently. Before giving you a detailed quote, we’ll need to know the type of glass that’s being repaired and the frame in which the pane will sit. Older or damaged frames may need to be replaced before a new piece of glass can be installed. Some frames suit different styles of glass and the location and size of the window may mean that certain skills or equipment may need to be used.
Why not upgrade?
You never have to wait until a window is damaged to update it, but it is a good excuse! Changing regular glass to double-glazed glass can help lower your energy costs. This is thanks to the design that reduces heat transfer through glass. Depending on the condition, replacing a window frame may also reduce droughts.
You may also like to change the style of your window. Divide a window up into smaller windows. Remove smaller pieces of glass and replace it with one large window. We hope that we’ve helped to clarify a few things about how much it might cost to repair a window. Unfortunately we can’t give you solid figures here because, as you now know, there are so many variables at play.
