Your local Glaziers in Cardiff

Window repairs are some of the most common issues to address within your home. Unfortunately, they can also be quite challenging. Our glass service addresses all of these needs; particularly in relation to double-glazed units. Please note that these very same areas can be addressed regarding a commercial property.

So, what types of glazier services are available through Decorative Glass & Glazing Company Ltd. and why we have a growing number of residents chosen our team of trained experts to address their individual needs?

Replacement Double Glazed Units

From time to time you’ll find that glass units will have to be changed to an increase of moisture or breakage. A lot of problems are caused by atmospheric conditions exerted on the unit through its lifetime. Sun will cause the air within the unit to expand and with constant expansion and contraction along with weathering will force the seals apart, causing moisture to get sucked in when seals eventually fail. All of our sealed units have a dual seal, which helps prolong the lifetime of the unit, one reason to Choose Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd for replacements.

During winter months the opposite can occur, when units implode, this time the pressure is greater on the outside, condensing the inside causing parts to break. Whether your glass is in a window, door or roof, whether its energy efficient, acoustic, anti-sun or a stained coloured glass, Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd are able to suit your requirements and provide a clean, quick and efficient service. Customer service is our number 1 priority.

Stained Glass

If you have stained or leaded decorative glass and it gets damaged, Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd are able to repair or replace it. We always look at the most inexpensive and effective option. In the case of double glazed units, you may have one of two options.

  • A stained glass overlay, which can be colour matched & copied.
  • A leaded light insert (stain is inside the double glazing unit) which can be released from the window in question, and re-inserted into a new double glazed unit.

A lot of older properties still retain the original leaded lights (stains). Sometimes the individual glass panes break. Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd are able to replace these individual pieced effectively and inexpensively.

In cases where lead has perished and integrity of the stain has failed, we are able to take out & re-lead, and when replaced, will look good as new. Alternatively, you may just wish to spruce up your property, we offer a comprehensive design service, where we can tailor make your requirements.

Whether you’re looking to install crystal bevels into your conservatory, or feature stained glass on your hall or landing, Decorative Glass & Glazing Co Ltd will go through step by step.
