Often people call us to ask if we do glass repairs and if we can heat the glass back up and melt it back together? The answer to that question is yes and no.
Yes, we do many different types of glass repairs, and every repair offers a unique solution. Most commonly we grind and polish chips out of the rims of glass pieces, and if your piece of glass has a clean break, it may be possible to chemically bond the two pieces back together once again. In some instances, we may make a replacement part to bond together with the original.
Unfortunately, it is technically impossible to heat a cold piece of glass up and to fuse it back together. In some instances, when breakage is severe, it may be advised to remake the piece if that is possible.
Call us to schedule a consultation for your piece of glassware. Be sure to bring all pieces with you for your consultation.
Minimum fee for repairs is $99.
