Having one in your home is great but the problem with these wonderful table tops is that they get broken and need to be replaced. When carrying out a glass table top replacement there are a few factors that should be considered.
In making a replacement of the glass table top, you need to know where to look for the glass replacement only. Looking for the replacement alone will offer you the opportunity to continue using table’s base which you already have and this will mean that you will save by replacing the glass alone because you don’t have to buy a completely new table.
Because the tampered glass is strong, when it breaks it shutters into small fragments instead of sharp pieces and ensures that the chances for severe injury or deep lacerations are mineralized. Consider making the glass replacement tampered because of such advantages that tam it will give you over the glass that is not tampered. There are different kinds of shapes for glass tables including the rectangular, the oval, the square, the round and the octagon shaped ones with some tables having rounded corners.
You can have other peculiar and unusual shaped table tops but you will have to get these cut before the tampering process is done. All fabrication thus must be done before tampering is done and if you want an oddly shaped table top you will have to consider that so that your table top is cut into the exact shape and then customized and then given the heat treatment in the tampering furnace that enables it to be hardened.
Another factor to consider in glass table top replacement is the edging. The finishing of the edges is to ensure that they have an equable and polished finish. There are many types of edges and the more complicated the design the more expensive the replacement will be. You need to get the correct dimensions and take note of the thickness of the glass. The larger you go, the more expensive it will be. Further, you need to consider special features such as tinted or non-tinted glass or any drilling required for accommodating any additions to the glass. The cost of replacement for your glass table top will depend on all the above factors.
