The last couple of days have been pretty rough in your neighborhood. Unseasonable and extremely strong storm systems decided to move through for some reason, and the hail was the size of goose eggs. Nearly everyone in your town sustained some property damage, and all across the state of Connecticut windows have been destroyed by this system of terrible weather. |
Be careful you don't step on any glass. If you have pets or small children around, this would be a good time to keep a close eye on them. You should call a glazier as soon as possible, but the immediate concern is keeping everyone from cutting their feet. There are always little shards that you don't see until it's far too late.
Many glaziers work twenty four hours a day and offer extremely quick response times. They know that the glass is sometimes the only thing keeping the cold weather out of your bedroom. They understand that you don't necessarily feel comfortable going to sleep or leaving your home for any length of time while there are gaping holes in the side of it.
If you have any sort of plywood, or even large sheets of cardboard, you might try a temporary cover yourself. Don't nail anything up anywhere, but try to make it stay in place with a bit of masking tape or similar. The most important consideration is your safety, though. No matter what you think you can do, make sure you can do it without sustaining any injury or causing further damage to the house.
Whatever you decide to do, you aren't going to be able to replace these panes without professional assistance. Look in the phone directory or on the Internet to find the contact information of a good Connecticut windows repair company, and see what they can do for you.
