Get rid of window woes with the 5 best window repairs in Johannesburg

  • Credibility and Experience - I chose companies that have at least 10 years of window repair experience or are associated with reputable associations like the South African Glass and Glazing Association and the Building Industry Bargaining Council.
  • Scope of Services - I selected companies that offer a wide range of window repair services that includes seal replacement, pane installation, glazing, and frame repair.
  • Range of Products - I selected companies that offer a range of window products for their repair services. This includes safety glass, laminated glass, putty, tempered glass, float glass, and more.
  • Customer Service - I made sure to include companies that respond well and promptly to their clients. I also included companies that hire knowledgeable technicians who are happy to help their clients and finish repair jobs at a reasonable time!

Until a few weeks ago, I never thought much about my windows. They’ve been in great condition for many years, even serving as an escape route during nights I sneak out of my childhood home past my curfew (sorry, Mom!). 

Sadly, my bedroom window broke after the seal deteriorated and the slider jammed. I quickly searched for “window repairs near me in Johannesburg” to get it fixed, and to my delight, there were a number of them I could call in within the day! 

After telling my family and friends about the incident, they quickly called window repair companies nearest to them for a check-in. Out of all the companies we called, here were the best of them all!

Our Glass Window Repairs in Johannesburg has been in business since 1980, catering to Joburg residents and business owners. They do all sorts of window services on different types including framed or frameless windows, glass fitting, and glazing. 

Safe to say, they’re a trusted brand in the field, especially since their technicians have a combined experience of 105 years. 

They can also do custom window repairs in case you want to remodel your home or commercial property and upgrade the frames. 

You can choose from tempered glass, laminated glass, bulletproof glass, or wired glass panes, and the quotations for each service can be consulted for free via phone or email. 

While they do offer emergency window repairs, they can only accommodate clients during their office hours. It would be nice if they could promptly respond to repair queries at any time of the day, especially when it’s an emergency! 


  • Offers free quotations 
  • Over 105 years of combined window repair experience


  • Emergency repairs are only available during office hours
  • Slow response to queries

Friendly service 

“I can’t thank our glass enough. From so much searching and calling our Glass, Lorieka and the team were an absolute delight. The friendliness of service to hear what I need for a glass cat flap in my aluminium door frame was outstanding. The team completed the measurement and delivered and installed the glass and cat flap attached for installation without any concerns.”

Prompt and efficient technicians

The Glass Merchants is a company you can rely on for aluminium window repairs in Johannesburg. When my grandparents needed to repair theirs, the company was very hands-on with the whole project. 

A highlight of the experience was the team’s trip outside Johannesburg to repair my elderly grandparents’ windows. Their service covers all towns in the Gauteng Region.

They offer various window services, including putty glazing, glass replacements, and fixing jammed sliders. Their standard glass is 4-mm thick but can be upgraded to 6.38-mm laminated shatterproof glass.

The only thing my grandparents were iffy about was that it took them a while to get back on their initial query. They don’t offer emergency repairs, and because my grandparents needed to get their windows sealed for safety, this was a letdown. 

The company, however, responded the next day and arrived shortly after to complete the repairs. No complaints there! 


  • Wide range of services
  • Specialises in aluminium window repairs


  • No emergency repair services
  • Slow response

Great work quality

“My insurance company sent these guys to me after a glass sliding door shattered. I was impressed with their prompt service and the quality of their work. The cost was less than I’d expected (after browsing doors from building stores) and I was able to withdraw my insurance claim for the materials. Very happy and would use them again and recommend them to others”

Very professional technicians

“Very professional. Alex knew what we needed. The quote came in at a good price. Ben and Justice were very professional and did their work very well. Thanks so much guys, really appreciate it.”

If you’re looking for a window repair company that can get the job done in a jiffy, I recommend Fast Glass. As the name suggests, their goal is to complete quality window repairs as fast as possible, and they deliver in that regard. 

The company is a member of the South African Glass and Glazing Association and the Building Industry Bargaining Council, so they have a large network of suppliers for their glass, steel, aluminium, and metal products. 

You can also order products from them if you need only certain parts for your windows, but I highly recommend hiring them to install them because they’ve worked on different kinds of windows for many years. 

My only complaint is their slow response to queries, especially for quotes and after-sales requests. They complete the job quickly but need to improve customer communication and satisfaction.


  • SAGGA and BIBC member
  • Fast turnaround time


  • Slow after-sales service

Efficient repairmen and staff

“I recently replaced some broken glass at my home and want to compliment the really good, efficient and very pleasant staff that came to do the job. Thank-you.”

When it comes to window repairs, it’s always useful to know a company that can repair car windows, too. Car windows are susceptible to damage due to bad weather or wear and tear, and I recommend NST Auto Glass to take a look at their condition. 

Their auto repair expertise is evident in their meticulous work and quality. They specialise in tempered and laminated glass, which, though excellent, can be pricey.

While their workmanship is unquestionable, more options would be beneficial, especially for different car models.

The benefit is upgraded safety and style for your car windows and windshields, as they are smash-resistant and more durable than regular types.

And because they specialise in car window repairs, they’re not a company I’d recommend for building windows. It’s still nice to know you have an expert to call in case your car windows break! 


  • Best for car window repairs
  • Promptly responds to queries


  • Offers only two types of glass panes 
  • Not suitable for home or building window repairs

Best for windshields

“Amazing Service and price from the guys at NST Glass. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in need of fast friendly service when looking for a windscreen replacement. Thanks Guys”

Kerwin Nathanial David, Google Review

Good value for money

“I’m so glad that I found this place. They were the most affordable for the best quality glass. They were professional and gave me great service. Thank you NST Glass.”

Linden Glass Works has been in the window and glass repair services for over 25 years, making them a go-to for residents living in the Randburg area. A few of the services they offer are safety glass installations, window glazing, and replacements.

They’re more known in town for their safety glass and glazing services, though, but the same expert technicians are also well-versed in repairing broken window panes and frames. 

They’re also well-versed in installing all sorts of window types, from aluminium to steel, as well as custom glass pane sizes. They can even cut them according to your preferences and needs if you need them to! 

Reaching them can be difficult unless you visit their store near Delta Park, as phone customer service can be rude. Their website is also outdated, so you can’t refer to it for relevant info.

For custom window repairs, visit their store (where they’ve operated since 1996!). 


  • Over 25 years of window repair experience
  • Best for safety glass installations and glazing 


  • Rude customer service
  • Website has outdated info

Good service

“Good service. Had an issue with a pane that had been incorrectly measured by us thankfully it was larger rather than the requisite size. The kind lady re-cut it without a fuss or a bother without charge. Recommend to anyone who wishes to have a pane cut immediately.”

Devan Singh, Google Review

Quick to respond

“Wow – what incredible service! Tracey was so quick to respond to my query and send her team out to collect my mirror that needed replacing. It was collected, fixed and returned to me within less than 18 hours – highly recommended Linden Glass.”
