  • Plexiglass: This type of glass is incredibly shatter-resistant and durable. 

  • Laminated glass: This glass is known to be very strong, and is even used in hurricane windows. 

  • Laminated glass: This glass is often used to develop bulletproof windows and windshields. It is shatter-resistant.

What's the Cost of Glass Replacement?

There is no set standard for how much it costs to replace a glass window. The price of the replacement depends on several factors and varies from case to case. Some of the conditions that determine the final cost of your window replacement are:

  • Type of window
    The type of window impacts several things, such as the kind of work required. Windows come in many styles, like double-hung windows.

  • Panes
    The number of panes that require work will impact the final cost. Naturally, replacing multiple panes will cost higher than working on a window with one pane.

  • Size
    The height and width of the window will affect the kind of work it will require. A large-sized window will cost higher to replace than a smaller one.

  • Type of glass
    The type of glass used in the replacement will also have an impact on the final price. Your glass may be tempered or laminated and coloured in different tints.

All of these factors come together to affect the final cost of replacement. If you’d like to know how much your glass replacement in Toronto will cost, please call us to speak to our team. They will assess all of these factors and give you an approximate quote.



How to Protect Your Glass from Damage?

Glass features like windows, storefronts and entry doors are long-lasting, provided that you care for them. Although glass is easy to maintain, you can avoid damage to it and keep it looking like new by:

  • Cleaning effectively: Whether it's a window or a storefront, regular cleaning with water, non-abrasive soap, and a lint-free microfiber cloth will prevent grime buildup. Not only that but paying attention to your cleaning materials will ensure that you don't scratch your glass unintentionally.

  • Using tempered glass: At Northstar Glass, we provide glass with various features to meet your needs. We can offer scratch-resistant glass for your commercial property.

  • Use coverage: While it might not be possible to cover your storefront glass or office glass walls during the day, you can protect them with covers during after-hours.

  • Attending to minor damages: Minor scratches on your glass are easy and inexpensive to repair. However, ignoring them can worsen the damage, necessitating extensive repairs or possible replacements later. We recommend getting any scratches on your glass repaired as soon as possible.

  • Are Glass Shower Doors worth It?
    Glass shower doors are completely worth it! A glass shower enclosure may seem like a big investment upfront, but it gives a good return. The visual appeal, durability, and functional benefits provide ideal value for money. So yes!
  • What Can You Not Put on a Glass Shower Door?
    While cleaning glass shower doors, never use an abrasive cleaner or scouring pad. Those products can scratch the surface. Instead, clean the shower glass with distilled white vinegar. Or use common household cleaning products that do not contain ammonia, because it will damage the hardware over time.
  • How Do I Clean My Shower Glass?
    The best way to keep shower glass clean is to wipe it with a squeegee after each shower. This will prevent any water spots or soap scum from building up. Another option is to use a daily shower spray like ShowerClean or a vinegar and water solution. If you maintain your bathroom right, it will look new for years.
  • What is a frameless glass shower?
    A frameless glass shower enclosure is made up of 3/8″ or 1/2″ tempered and polished safety glass. This glass has greater strength and does not require heavy metal framing around it.
  • What are the advantages of a frameless glass shower?
    A frameless glass shower enclosure is aesthetically superior to any other shower solution, allowing the tile and other room features to be highlighted. Frameless glass shower doors are easier to clean because they don’t have a metal framing. A frameless shower creates a more open look.
  • What Is a Framed Glass Shower?
    A framed shower is constructed with thinner 3/16″or ¼” glass. It relies on a metal frame to strengthen the enclosure.
  • What Are the Advantages of a Framed Glass Shower?
    Depending on the size and design, a framed shower would cost less because it uses thinner glass and is easier for a technician to install. Framed glass showers can be designed to have an elegant look by using a complementary finish on the frames.
