A glazier cuts, replaces, smooths and selects glass for various projects, from residential and commercial to industrial. The glazier mounts the glass using suction cups and secures the glass with putty, rubber gaskets or metal clips. It is required that glaziers be able to handle power tools (grinders, drills and saws) and smaller tools that are used to cut the glass like glass-cutters and knives. Many glaziers use computers to help with the layout, which in turn leads to less glass being wasted. Must have 5 years experience as a commercial Glazier.
