Glazing contractors

The word glazing originated between the 12th and 15th century and refers to a section of a wall or window made of glass. Glazing refers to the type of work done by specialists known as glaziers or glazing contractors. These professionals are responsible for selecting, cutting, installing, replacing and removing both commercial and residential glass in South Africa.

Glazing contractors are also able to mount aluminium frames commonly found in store fronts and entrances. They can help you install glass handrails, shower enclosures, glass balustrades, shower doors as well as glass and mirror walls. Laminated glass, tempered glass, tinted and clear float glass are common types if glazing, typically used in architectural work. There are also a number of coated glasses which can all be glazed (single, double or triple) by glazing contractors.  A professional glazing contractor is able to work on both residential and commercial work easily, and produce work that adheres to industry standards.  The majority of glass merchants are able to assist you with any glazing work that you might need, and you can use the YellowPages to find one close to you. 

There are a number of institutions that offer training for glazing contractors, and it takes about four years to complete both the course as well as on the job (apprenticeship) training. Once the training is complete the trainee then qualifies as a journeyman glazing contractor and this opens the doors to work on industrial and commercial glazing projects, which have the potential to earn more money.
