The Important Work of Glaziers

Glaziers are professionals who have received special training to work proficiently with different kinds of glass. Glaziers are responsible for modifying glass from its crude form into the one which we are accustomed to use. Glaziers are also professionally trained as glass fitters who insulate and treat glass, as well as prepare glass for cutting and installation for various purposes.

Prominently, glass is used for its condensing and sound qualities, while also giving the property a stylish look. Glass also provides the home with a bright and inviting appearance, when used creatively. Many types of glass can provide you with all of the various comforts that you need and want in your home. Using a professional glazier will insure that you have years of satisfactory performance from the glass products that you have installed in your home or business.

Key responsibilities of glaziers

  • Residential Glazing: This category includes all types of specialty work for the home: replacement of a glass in windows of a home, installation of glass mirrors and bathtub enclosures. Glaziers also fit glass for tabletops and display cases, thus conveying the message that any glass installation work in a home should be done only by the qualified glaziers. It is very important that you hire a skilled glazier; if you attempt to do the glass fitting work yourself, you could cause a good deal of damage to your home and perhaps, to yourself.
Other Products:
  • Commercial Glazing: The basic responsibilities of glaziers are the same in commercial glazing, with the only difference being that they install and replace glass in commercial properties. This includes, but is not limited to, activities like installing etched and decorative windows. Glaziers are often required to replace shop front windows of supermarkets and other commercial establishments. Glaziers also find work in building extrusions and installing glass panels in large commercial buildings.

The responsibilities of Glaziers do not start and end with glass. They are also trained to work on plastics, and with other materials used as substitutes for glass.

Glaziers and their working conditions

Professional Glaziers hardly ever work indoors. Most of their work requires them to endure the harshest weather conditions. As their main job responsibility requires them to actively deal with glass, they are prone to cuts and injuries. This warrants glaziers to wear several types of protective equipment before they start working on and with the glass materials.

Get trained to become a glazier

There are a limited number of vocational schools offering specialized training courses for individuals who aspire to become glaziers. Most glaziers acquire their skills through on-the-job training, working with contractors. There are a select few who get educated in glazing for three years at technical schools and step into a work role. Glaziers opting for on-the-job mode of training begin their education at this craft by starting as an assistant to skilled artisans. Slowly, they become proficient at all the levels of expertise and move up the ladder as an experienced glazier.

Glaziers need great eye-hand coordination, good body balance, and should have good physical fitness. More importantly, individuals would need to be extremely passionate about their profession; after a period of time, glazing does get to be monotonous and physically tiring.
