Glazier

A Glazier is responsible for selecting, installing, replacing, and removing all types of glass. Work in the glazing field can involve both residential and commercial projects. Residential projects may include replacing a home’s window glass to improve energy efficiency, installing glass mirrors, shower doors and fitting glass for tabletops and display cases. Commercial interior glazing projects include installing items such as heavy, decorative room dividers or security windows. Other glazing projects may involve replacing storefront windows for establishments such as supermarkets, auto dealerships or banks. In the construction of large commercial buildings, glaziers build metal framework extrusions and install glass panels or curtain walls.
