We are able to replace most types of broken glass and mirror from small frames to complex beaded glazed doors. We can reproduce and replace astragal mouldings and other glazing bars, too. Mouldings tend to be very fragile on antique bookcases and can often suffer damage when the glass is broken.
Old putty holding in the glass into the frame becomes almost rock-hard over time and the essential process of removing it is almost always tricky, delicate and frequently time-consuming.
We can supply bevelled or plain glass, shaped or mirrored and even toughened and laminated glass for shelving and table tops.
THINGS WE CANNOT DO WITH GLASS:
• We can't repair broken glass and glue it or put it back together. As far as we're aware, this is impossible.
• Unfortunately, there seems to be almost no one around who will re-silver mirrors these days.
• If you have simply broken a plain piece of mirrored glass in a standard frame, it's likely to be more cost effective going to your local glazier, than using us to do it.
• We can repair hand mirrors, but only if they're made from wood. We avoid working on silver, brass or other decorative metal hand-mirrors.
