What do glass cutting services include?
Many local glass companies now provide various types and sizes of glass sheets to fulfill 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 cutting service done through Airtasker:
Glass sizing and measurement
Upon arriving, your Tasker first sets up the preparatory steps required of any cutting request. It typically includes jotting down the specifications of your needs, down to the last millimeter. Once done, they will prep and mark the glass sheet based on the sizing 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, 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.
