Top Glass Cutting related questions
You can use glass cut to size for a variety of implements and fixtures. In general, the most common application for custom glass would be for home window fixtures. Although traditional window frames are still quite typical, it's becoming an increasing trend to use a bespoke glass cutting service to improve the curb appeal of a home. Decorative glass for stained glass mosaics are also trendy, as well as custom glass walls for bathrooms and pools.
Technically, you can do the glass cutting process on your own with the use of a traditional glass cutter that you can get from any hardware store. While that may be the case, it's still highly recommended to have a professional glass cutter to handle it for you instead. With an expert on-hand, you can assure that the result will be perfect while reducing the possible risk of shattering and breaks.
The time it takes to complete a glass cutting service depends on the extent of work required. Usually, glass cutting takes around 10-15 minutes, especially for standard-sized pieces. If you need to have more than one glass sheet cut, and they're also substantial in size, then it may take longer to finish as well. Feel free to approach your Tasker for a more accurate time frame.
Not necessarily. Your Tasker can bring their own set of tools for a glass cutting service, especially if you don't have any supplies on-hand. If you were already able to prepare the necessary materials beforehand, you could lend them to your Tasker as well. Should the service require any specific tool, you can indicate this when posting your task so your Tasker can prepare everything before going to your location.
You don't really have to be around when you have a Tasker over for a glass cutting service. However, it may be best for you to be within reach of your Tasker. This way, your Tasker can directly communicate with you to assure that the process goes along smoothly and according to your liking.
We can connect you with Taskers who can handle just about any home improvement or refurbishment task. If you're having electrical or plumbing problems, get in touch with tradies who can install light fixtures around your home or fix leaks and broken pipes. In case you just moved houses and need someone to put your furniture together for you, we have skilled assemblers who can lend a hand as well.
What do glass cutting services include?
Many local glass companies now provide various types and sizes of glass sheets, like tempered glass, safety glass, and laminated glass to fulfil almost any building and construction need. If you're looking for local glass cutters near you to produce some custom cut glass for you, then Airtasker can lend you a hand! We have plenty of expert glass cutters available to handle any cut-to-size glass request.
Here are some of what to expect when getting a glass cutting service done through Airtasker:
Glass sizing and measurement
Upon arriving, your Tasker first sets up the preparatory steps required of any glass cutting request. It typically includes jotting down the specifications of your needs, down to the last millimetre. Once done, they will prep and mark the glass sheet based on the glass thickness and measurement taken. This way, you can make sure that the resulting cut-to-size glass will be according to the given parameters.
Unlike what most people believe, glass cutting doesn't actually involve what is commonly thought of as a "cutting" method. It's a two-part process that entails scoring and breaking. Glass scoring would have a knowledgeable tradesman create an outline of your needed specifications on a sheet of glass. This is done through the use of a glass cutter, which makes a straight break. It also serves as a guide for the second step of the process.
The glass breaking process will quite literally involve breaking the sheet of glass to separate the unwanted excess, leaving the desired cut-to-size glass alone. There are numerous approaches to this, with the most common involving the use of the glass cutter once again. At the other end of the blade is a weighted ball, which your Tasker could use to create the breaks along the scored line.
Glass sanding and polishing
Your Tasker can proceed to the sanding and polishing process once your glass piece is already down to your desired size and shape. They can run the glass through some sandpaper to remove all the jagged and imperfectly cut edges. In doing so, you get to avoid any dangerous accidents from the sharp corners, while reducing its chances of breaking from potential weak spots.
More often than not, your cut-to-size glass is part of a more significant project you're having constructed for your home. To have an easier time, you can use Airtasker to connect you with a skilled handyman who can install your glass fixtures for you. Whether it's a custom window or a glass wall, an experienced handler will know how to proceed for the best results.
