Replacing a piece of glass and restoring your tabletop consists of some important steps including:
Measurement: Your glass technician will measure the tabletop and the space where the glass will rest to ensure that the end result is nothing short of a perfect fit.
Cutting: With measurements in hand, the technician will then cut a piece of glass to the right size.
Shaping and edging: Once the glass has been cut, it will then be shaped to fit and the edges polished and smoothed for safe handling.
Testing: Your glass technician will test for fit, making absolutely certain that the glass mounts perfectly.
Tempering: If the glass fits perfectly, it may then be tempered for added strength and durability.
