Smashed, cracked or chipped window

Smashed or cracked glass 

If the glass in the window is smashed or cracked, it's an emergency. Please always report an emergency by phone on 0800 3 282 282. You can contact us to report an emergency on this number 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

What to expect

We'll board up or tape the window to make it safe. We won't replace broken glass unless it's the result of a criminal act. If it was a criminal act you must report it to the police, and they'll give you a crime reference number.

Chipped glass  

If the glass in your window is chipped, it isn't an emergency. Please report this as a routine repair.

Help us fix it faster

When reporting a window repair, it's always helpful to tell us what the frame is made of, for example, wood or UPVC.

Extra help when it's needed

This toolkit is just a guide. If you or your household require extra support (for example due to disability, illness or age) and need to report this issue as an emergency, then please contact us to explain your circumstances and we’ll be happy to help.
