“One of the windows on our front porch got broken,” Dan said. “So I went down to the local big box hardware store to see if they could cut me a piece of glass in the size I needed. They tried sending me home with a big piece of glass and a glass cutter.” He laughed. “If I knew how to cut glass, I wouldn’t be in your store asking you to cut glass for me!”
Custom Cut Glass & Window Replacement Glass: The Best Local Source for DIY & Home Repair
“After that experience, I was talking to a buddy who is kind of a mentor to me. Not that he’s a professional builder or anything, but he does a lot of his own work around the house. And he said to me that there’s a South Shore glass replacement company any time you need glass for windows, cabinet doors, even mirrors. It’s all cut to size, and if you want some kind of special glass, they’ll hook you up.”
“So I took a drive over there. I brought my measurements and a piece of the broken window glass so they could see what I wanted.” Dan said. “It was super easy. They cut me the glass I wanted, and when I got home, it fit perfectly in place. They also told me that if I ever needed them to come measure or even install the replacement glass, they do that as well.”
Custom Cut Glass: Different Sizes, Different Shapes
In addition to needing glass cut to custom sizes, people sometimes need glass and mirrors cut to custom shapes. A common example of this is the protective glass sometimes used on top of fine furniture like tabletops. Custom cut mirrors are very popular for bathroom installation as well as throughout the home.
