broken glass

“I’ll see if they will bring out a new door to replace this one,” said my husband.   He knew he would have to carefully preserve all the broken pieces to prove his point.  If all the pieces were in place, it was obvious that there was no contact point from which it broke.  Sometimes the twisting of the frame even if only slight puts pressure on the middle panes and caused them to break.

Fortunately we had done business with this company before and knew they would stand behind their products and service.

Know those with whom you do business.


This is fiction.  But this situation came to my mind, because my husband does replace glass and he does guarantee his service.  Sometimes glass breaks because there is tension at some point.  Often the glass company we do business with will replace the glass; husband re-does the work.  I think.  The situation is true as far as I know.  If not, I’m at home and don’t know what I’m talking about!  I plead innocent and dumb.  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      If you can find family owned who do not use expensive machines and tools, you get best service at least cost MHO. We have been in the glass business since the late 80’s. My husband retired from teaching in the early nineties. The business mostly belongs to our son now, but Sammy still puts in windows. Fortunately we do not have to do many do-overs.

        They would have to take the door apart, insert new glass where broken… and unfortunately, I can’t seem to find a place where they would do it!
        Why aren’t you near me? 😀

          I don’t know about the “door apart” but they would have to replace the whole window unit; the individual panes can not be replaced. And it is probably a thermal unit which means the whole unit has to be manufactured with a vacuum between the glass panes. No fun for sure. Sometimes when only one side of the pane is broken, people really try to get only that side fixed. Can’t do. Hope you get fixed satisfactorily. Broken glass is not what most people like to budget for!

    Sounds like you’re a woman who knows her glass. I learned something here today besides that I enjoyed you take on the prompt..

    Kind of lends to the adage, “if it can’t be fixed with duct tape it can’t be fixed.”

  4. Nice little tip, I didn’t know that although I did know glass can break under strain having worked for a while in a double glazing factory

  5. ohh put in a stained glass window!
