This is the worst possible scenario. Its Mid May and June is fast approaching. Your kids are playing in the room and next you hear the sound of a window smashing!! First thought obviously is all that broken glass with you kids there! Worrying about their safety you find that they are perfectly fine and playing as far away from the glass shards as humanly possible. Next you worry about the winter weather. This is the kids bedroom after all and you cant afford to have them free to death especially in those early hours of the morning.

Determine The Extent Of The Broken Glass

Before deciding to call an expert to replace the broken glass, first assess the damage by physically looking at the window and carefully removing any loose shards of glass. If you have a tape measure or ruler lying around use that to measure out the length and width of the window frame. This is done on the outer edges of the frame just towards the glass. Thereafter quickly take pictures of the damage so you can get a quick quote without much explaining and to enable the experts to come prepared.

Warm Up The Room

Now that you have checked the broken glass window damage, warm up the room so that while you wait for experts you are not facing major inconveniences. Firstly board up the windows as best you can with plastic or board and tape. This enables the internal warmth inside the room to be maintained. After this you can place a heater in the room if it is going to be used. Lastly, carefully clean up the shards of broken glass on the floor or window ledge.
