So spring is just around the corner. The ideal time to clean the garden and you’re about to set the dining area ready for the summer barbecues and outdoor parties. You find the table top has been damaged by high winds, or something falling onto it. Is this you?
What are you going to do?
You ring the local garden center or shop where you purchased the Patio Dining set and they suggest perhaps
buying another table set or if they are really good, they might be able get hold of another table in 12 weeks or
however long it takes to get a shipping container over when all you need is just the table glass.

What thickness do I need for my Patio Table Glass Replacement?
Typical thickness in UK glass production is either 4mm or 6mm, commonly when replacing customers opt for 6mm for a bit more integrity than the standard 4/5mm which most tables are supplied with. We advise having the edges polished, as the toughening furniture stamp can be neatly applied to the edge. Unpolished edges on the glass won’t cut you, but unpolished glass is commonly used if the glass is being recessed into the frame. Also if unpolished, you will have a ‘face’ toughening stamp on the glass.
What if I need a hole in my glass for a parasol?
Of course if you need a new hole for your parasol, they are typically 50mm in diameter and placed centrally in the glass, however some are larger, so please contact us if they are, as the cost increases.
My Garden Table Glass was a solid Black or Brown colour before, what are my options for replacement? Back paint your glass with our DIY tips, save money!
Many patio table sets have coloured or tinted glass, we commonly assist in offering black, brown and other solid colour options if needed. The tinted colours are either a bronze of a smoked grey, contact us directly for a price as these are only available in 6mm thickness and are more expensive than clear toughened glass.
We do suggest that customers can save money buy purchasing the clear glass, then back painting when you receive it. This not only saves money, but will mean the production time on the glass is lessened. To paint the glass we advise purchasing an oil based eggshell paint, apply several coats over a few days (or until you’re happy with the result) with a gloss roller or similar. You won’t see any brush or roller marks once the layers have been built up.
Once painting has ended, consider applying a varnish to help seal the paint, this also helps to protect against weathering on the table. As the painted side is the underside of the glass, so it will look as new once you’ve finished. Simple, and cost effective for replacing your rattan table glass. As a comparison, the cost of production facility back painting is typically a minimum charge of approx £120. Exact prices are based on the area of the glass required and so vary accordingly.
