Glass-topped tables can look very nice, and with proper care, they can last for a long time. However, at some point, you may need to purchase a new piece of glass to put on top of your table. Fortunately, this should be something that someone from a glass company can help you with. These are a few signs that it's time for you to purchase a new piece of glass for your coffee table, dining table or other type of glass-topped table.
1. It's Scratched
First of all, you probably want your glass-topped table to look nice. If the surface is scratched up, then you might not like the way that the glass looks. Fortunately, you can replace the glass so that you can give your table a like-new look. Then, being careful with your table can help prevent future scratches; for example, you may want to be careful about the way that you slide or move things around on top of the table. Additionally, when cleaning the table, make sure that you always use a clean cloth, since even a small piece of sand or debris that is wiped across your glass table can leave behind scratches and other damage.
2. There's a Crack
If your glass-top table has a crack, you should know that the entire piece of glass could be at risk of shattering if you aren't careful. Replacing the glass is important for both the appearance of your table and the safety of you, your family and anyone else who comes around the table. Handling the glass carefully and not placing overly heavy items on top of the table can help you avoid cracking the new piece of glass.
3. It Looks or Feels Flimsy
The glass on top of a glass-top table should generally be nice and thick, and it should feel durable. If the glass on top of your table feels thin or flimsy, then you could be worried about it moving or breaking easily. Replacing it with a thicker, more durable piece of glass can help you feel more secure and can help you ensure that your table is durable enough for daily use.
As you can see, in some situations, it can be a good idea for you to replace the glass on your glass-topped table. Luckily, you do not have to replace your entire table just because the glass itself is worn-out or flimsy. Instead, you can work with someone from a glass company, like Allied Glass & Mirror, to purchase a piece of glass that will fit perfectly on top of your table.
