After talking with an incredible client, builder John Ellis, you can understand just how dedicated Complete Glass are:

“In building, we’ve got windows, and then we’ve got windows, so this is a window. I’m John Ellis, I’m a builder by trade, we build bespoke homes around Sydney, it’s literally 60 millimetres thick. So this glass is full on walkable, trafficable glass. Not every company is going to have the capability of actually delivering this type of glass because there’s a lot of risk involved in it you know, for Campbell, he specialises in these pieces of glass.

It was just a seamless operation to actually, logistically get it from the factory to site and then open the air and then into place. So Campbell was able to deliver all of that in a seamless fashion, which for me is a lot less stressful, I’ve got a lot of things to worry about on site. This is one of those things handing it over to a very competent subcontractor like Campbell and his team. It’s just very, very efficient, very cost effective way to do it. With Campbell, the line of communication was really easy, he responded to every question that we had, and he was able to come to us with solutions for what we had to do here.

This is the first time we’ve worked with Complete Glass. It’s been a great experience and I look forward to working with him again in the future. Consider him a part of the team now.”

In response, Campbell proudly had this to say:

“We go out and do a site inspection, we walk through the process with the builder John, make sure that everyone’s on the same page, so that on the day, the plan goes perfectly. Working with bespoke builders, like John from Structure Building, we can offer a personalised service with clear communication, we can work together as a team to achieve an excellent finish.”

Complete Glass has been delivering premium glazing solutions to Sydney for over 10 years!

Complete Glass Projects works closely with Sydney trading companies to give you the most appropriate glass for your business.

Vision 3 are loyal and cherished clients of Complete Glass, and what they have to say displays the passion and commitment we strive for:

Michelle Hurley, Account Manager at Vision 3

“We’ve got clients where they, you know, ring us up and thank us. For using such a great company such as Complete Glass. And that reflects really well on us as window endorsed suppliers.

The point of difference with Complete Glass, is that they are super organised. What struck me in those first sort of, two or three weeks was the level of communication that he had and the knowledge that he had about the jobs. It wasn’t just another job get a subbie to do. It was all about actually having the result at the end, was that the client was really happy and that the glazing did the window justice.

Lisa works for Campbell and, she is always updating us with what’s happening. Whether it’s… “Yes we’ve ordered the glass,” “we’ve booked in for this day”

 

Omar Rutherford, Director at Vision 3

“We first started to work with Campbell and Complete Glass about three and a half, four years ago. Along the way of fifteen years, we’ve obviously had a lot of glaziers that, we’ve employed on and off. I dare say probably about half a dozen at least. Campbell is by far the most professional.

When Campbell’s involved especially in the sight glazing aspect of it. More importantly it’s probably the high end housing that we do, on the beaches. He does what he says he’s going to do. He’s always on time and does a great job.”

 

Campbell very proudly had this to say in response:

“I love working with Vision 3, because our communication is so clear. We get to talk everyday by phone or text or email, and Michelle and Omar just are always looking to improve the system for their clients. Making sure that their clients are happy at the end of the day. And they’re always happy to take on some suggestions. If it’s to install larger glass or use a crane for better safer installations, it’s never a problem.”

About Complete Glass

Complete Glass has been delivering premium glazing solutions to Sydney for over 10+ years!

Our commitment to quality finishes, professional craftsmanship and friendly service has seen our business grow rapidly in the past five years.

The proud Project Manager, Campbell Hyde, had this to say:

“I love seeing how the finished product comes together with the glass and the natural light and knowing that we’ve created something special for their client. At Complete Glass, we offer the feel of a smaller company with the capacity to handle the major works. The moment that everything clicked for my purpose was when I became a father and the stresses of business changed because I went home and I realised that I was going through these day-to-day challenges for a reason, and the reason is to provide for my family. I want to leave my clients with the highest finish as I would leave it for my family.”

What our clients had to say about their experience with Complete Glass:

John Ellis, Builder at Structure Building

“Well looking at buildings we’ve got windows and we’ve got windows. So this is a window, it’s like a massive piece of glass. Not every company is going to have the capability of actually delivering this type of glass because there’s a lot of risk involved in it. For Campbell, he specialises in these pieces of glass. He’s able to deliver these, get them installed and bring them in on budget. That’s what I really liked about it.”

Heather Rollo, Homeowner

“When we had a big house in Turramurra and we had a very difficult window problem to solve and Campbell was like, yeah, can do attitude. And the one thing that I really loved about it was that he said to me, “we’ll make this look really nice”.

Campbell’s loving wife, Kelly Hyde, also had something beautiful to say:

“When I met Campbell, I noticed that he was a very driven person. He is very passionate, when he likes something he really goes for it, and he is very approachable. Campbell is an amazing dad. He loves making people happy. He loves hearing that recognition of people being satisfied with the job that he does and feeling proud of the work that he can say, oh, I did that.”

Types of Window Glass: What’s Best for Your Home?

Complete Glass are Sydney’s expert Glaziers. We’ve been servicing Sydney for over 10+ years with fast, efficient, and affordable glassing solutions.

If you’re interested in new glass windows for your home or replacing your existing glass windows, you naturally want to do your research and make sure you’re picking the right kind.

While you don’t need to be an expert, it is helpful to understand common terminology and the various types that are available. So without further ado below is a detailed list on the various types of window glass, so you can choose what’s best for your home or project.

Float Glass – Float glass is named for the process of forming molten glass into large, flat panels. During the process, molten glass is floated on molten tin, producing the smoothest possible large, thin glass panel. This is a basic sheet of glass before it is cut, treated, upgraded and set into a frame – a starting material for your window. This is low-cost, colourless glass as the starting point for what will become quality windows, glass doors and panels.

Safety Laminated Glass – Laminated glass is an extra-strong, security-enhanced glass created by fusing at least two panes around an inner layer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral). This process uses a high heat and pressure fusion process to create a super-strong panel.

If you need glass to stay put in the frame if it’s broken, for safety or security reasons, this would be one of your best choices. After all, it’s laminated glass technology that you’ll find in your vehicle’s windshield: ensuring that an object colliding with the glass does not strike the occupant and spray glass shards inside.

Obscured Glass – Obscured glass is any type of glass which allows light to come in, but can’t be clearly seen through. Obscured glass patterns may be frosted, etched, coated or otherwise designed so that you can’t look through it and see more than vague shadows of what’s behind. That’s why this is the most popular type of glass for bathroom windows, shower doors and entry door areas.

While there’s some debate on whether it truly affords enough privacy for bathrooms and showers or not, obscured glass is usually worth it to anyone who wants more natural light indoors.

Annealed Glass – Annealing is the slow, meticulous and controlled process of cooling a panel of float glass. The purpose of this process is to strengthen the glass by reducing the stress caused to it by quick cooling.

This is usually the next step for float glass, and now further upgrades can be done. Annealed glass is not the ideal choice for windows, as it’ll leave shards and large, sharp pieces if it is broken.

Tinted Glass – Tinted glass is any kind of glass which has coloring added. This can be done for several reasons, including design aesthetic, privacy and reducing heat from sunlight. Tinted glass can also be a form of protection against harmful UV rays.

You usually see tinted glass on vehicles, skylights and decorative panels, but you can also use it for external windows to bump up your privacy factor a little bit.

Tempered Glass – Tempered glass is annealed glass – only with quadrupled strength. Tempered glass can’t be cut, so the tempering process takes place only after the annealed glass is cut and finished in the desired size. The glass is heated to above 1200 degrees and then quickly cooled. To make heat-soaked tempered glass, the panes are baked at 550 degrees.

If the glass is unstable, it’ll break. This method tests the glass before it’s used in any real-life applications. You probably have tempered safety glass in your car, so that you can break them out in case of an emergency.

Insulated Glass – Insulated glass windows come in a unit that is optimized for energy efficiency. They may be two or three panes of glass, with argon in the spaces between the panes. The glass panes in an insulated unit are typically laminated or tempered security glass.

An insulated glass window unit also has a desiccant component, ensuring that condensation won’t form in between the panes where you can’t wipe it off. Insulated glass windows are a great choice for exterior glass that’ll help you keep your heating and cooling costs down. Not all insulated glass units are created equally, so be sure to compare your options for the best energy efficiency ratings.

Mirrored Glass – To create mirrored glass, a panel is given a metal coating on one side. This coating is sealed with an extra protective sealant, creating a mirror effect. You usually find mirrored glass being used in a decorative capacity, such as on walls, furniture and doors. Mirrored glass is pretty, but it’s not usually used for exterior windows.

Low-E Glass – Low emissivity glass is specially coated to reflect thermal radiation. The low-e coating keeps out infrared rays, while light still filters through. Why is this so beneficial for homes? During the summer, heat is directed away from your house, and in the winter, your indoor heat is reflected back in the house and won’t escape through the windows.

This translates to lower heating and cooling costs. Low-e glass can be a pricey investment, but the savings in the long run can make it worth it. Some types of low-e coatings cause tinting, so be sure to check out some samples in person to make sure you’re okay with how the glass will look installed in your home.

Wired Glass – Wire glass isn’t necessarily considered a security glass, but it’s a fire-resistant glass. That’s why it’s most commonly used in schools, hospitals, and other commercial buildings. The grid of wires built into the panes will actually hold the glass in the frame if it shatters under high heat – such as a building fire.

It can also withstand a blast from a firefighter’s hose without blowing shards out everywhere. While wired glass works great for many commercial applications, you don’t often see it used in residential home design.

Heat Strengthened Glass – To make annealed glass panels twice as tough, it’s reheated above 1200 and then cooled. It’s not cooled quite as quickly as tempered glass, so it’s not as strong. Heat strengthened glass is tougher than lower grades of glass, but it can still shatter and break into sharp pieces. It’s not often used for exterior windows until it has also been laminated.
