Glass repair company cracking it with affordable service

Local emergency glass repairs company Glass and Allied Industries has received praise for their great service and affordable prices.

CapeTalk listener Anik wrote in to compliment the Cape Town business for their comparatively low rates for repairing the broken side-mirror in cars.

Instead of removing the entire fitting unnecessarily, the company replaces only the broken glass at just R195.

The Salt River-based business is celebrating 26 years and has grown their service offering over the years.

Owner Sinclair Broadhurst says they started off only offering glass repair, mirror installation and window tinting.

Glass and Allied Industries then expanded into a niche market, offering special services for aluminium windows and doors.

Broadhurst says his company is now well-established and marketed as a result of a strong referral system.

They offer commercial, residential and industrial services and opened Monday to Friday from 07h30.

We are also willing to accommodate anyone who needs repairs done. There's no job too big or too small for us to handle.
