Skylights & Roof Glazing
Montrose Glass provides professional emergency glaziers for all height work, including skylight glass replacements, conservatory roof glazing, Velux’s and commercial glass structures. We are a nationwide company, available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! We promise a 30-90 minute response time, but if you prefer, you can book a local glazier at a time and date to suit you.
A lot of glass is up in the air. Height work is a major part of a glazing company’s business, so it is essential to have experienced glaziers and the correct insurances. For commercial jobs, method statements and risk assessments are mandatory. With roof and skylight glass replacement, it all depends on access and a lot of the time you have to rely on the knowledge of the glazier to work out the best option. Therefore, many jobs will require a site survey.
Roof Glazing & Skylight Installation Process
Sometimes with replacing glass in windows on the second floor or higher, it is possible to remove the frame from the inside, or where safe, it can be accessed by leaning out of an adjacent window to complete the job. On other height work, and trickier skylight installations, access equipment will be necessary.
We can attend your property to do an emergency survey to assess the risk and gain an understanding of what equipment may be necessary for the initial making safe or any further roof glazing works. Please note, an emergency access survey is required to begin the glazing or height work process. Access equipment will usually include ladders, scaffolding, cherry pickers and specialist cranes.
Don’t forget, all services are available 24 hours a day! We might be a family run company, but we are big enough to cope and small enough to care, wherever you are in the UK! We adhere to all regulations and British Standards, as roof glazing is fitted under strict legal parameters. This will always be a type of safety glass, which includes wired glass, toughened glass and laminated safety glass, whether double or single glazed.
Whatever the glazing spec, it will not be something that our glaziers haven’t come across before, as we can handle anything to do with the glazing industry whether on the ground or in the air.
