You have a small chip or crack in your window

If you have a small chip or crack in one of the windows around your house, then it can be more cost effective in most cases for you to have the window repaired instead of purchasing a whole new window because of a tiny bit of damage. The reason for having the repair done is to prevent worse damage. When there is damage to your window, not only can even a small impact end up causing the window to break, but you also won't have to worry about something like cold weather making the damage worse. 

You have a chip in your glass tabletop

If you have one or more chips in your glass tabletop, then you know how much it can ruin the whole look of your otherwise great-looking table. Not only will the chips be an eyesore that distracts from the look of the table, but the chips can also cause someone to accidentally get cut. They also make it harder for you to keep the table clean because anything that gets spilled on the table can end up going into the chips, where it will be hard to completely clean. 

You have damage in your shower door

If your glass shower door has a chip or a crack in it, then you can also have it repaired. Glass shower doors don't tend to be cheap. Also, you may have a shower door that has a custom design to it that helps you achieve just the look you want for your whole bathroom. Having it repaired will be a great way for you to go.
