What is an After-Hours Shutter Service?
Most glass repair experts will offer emergency services and although these features will commonly be taken advantage of by commercial business owners – that’s not to say that home owners can’t stand to benefit as well. Just imagine how stressful things could get if you suddenly come home from a long day at work, only to find your windows or shutters have been damaged; either by accident or as a result of vandalism.
In Australia, burglars are responsible for about 15% of all crimes and whether your commercial property has been damaged, or if it’s your home in question – the last thing that you’ll want is to keep your property exposed. That’s where a glazier can come in handy, even if you don’t want them to replace your windows there and then.
But what can you do if your windows or shutters have been damaged in the early hours of the morning? Well as mentioned above, most good glaziers will offer emergency call out services, but how do they work?
What is an after-hours shutter service?
After-hours applies to any service that takes place ‘outside of the regular hours of operation’. In most cases this just means 9am to 5pm. So, what can you do if you’re a property owner that has a break-in at 3am? Well, the first thing to do will be to call the police, but secondly you will want to ensure that the property is safe and secure as soon as possible.
Where regular glass repair services might not be available at these times, an after-hour service should be. We like to call these experts emergency repairmen (and women) and in most cases they will monitor a particular number 24 hours a day, just in case they should find themselves needed for an urgent situation.
Who can use these services?
Literally anyone at all! If you have a window in your home that’s been smashed, then an emergency glazier can help. If it’s your place of business that has suffered with damage, then one of these experts can help here, too. But as you might have guessed, windows and shutters are two different things and not only do they vary, there are also alternative types that are used within stores, garages and homes.
For instance, if a window has been damaged, it can be temporarily fixed by applying boards to restrict access, or to stop people from harming themselves on any shards that are still attached to the frame. If the shutter of a store has been damaged, then a good glazier will be able to take care of any repairs, or even fit a new replacement if the need arises.
The fact that they offer emergency features means that a window or a shutter won’t have to be left open to the elements all night – and as you might imagine, this can be a huge advantage. Rather than leaving things as they are, why not get in touch with a 24/7 glazier that can come to your property, evaluate the situation and then implement the most effective installation, repair, or replacement solution to suit your needs in next to no time?
