Glaziers
Description: Glaziers cut, install, and remove all kinds of glass and plastics in doors, windows, showers, and baths. They often use glass that is precut and mounted in a frame. They may use cranes to lift large, heavy pieces into place. Once the glass is mounted, glaziers secure it with bolts, cement, metal clips, or wood molding. Glaziers work outdoors in all kinds of weather. They sometimes work on ladders and high scaffolding.
