What Do They Do
Glaziers engaged in construction work cut and install all types and sizes of glass, such as plate glass of all kinds and thicknesses, clear and heat absorbing window glass, obscure glass, mirrors, leaded glass panels and insulating glass units; also they fabricate and install aluminum entrances, sidelights and show windows. They fit and install plastic and porcelain panels in metal and wood frames.
Glaziers work both indoors and outside depending on the job. Window fabricating and some installations are done indoors; however, glaziers do much of their work outdoors or in unheated areas. Glaziers do a great deal of standing, lifting and carrying with some work at heights.
