Broken Window/Door

Hi all.

So we are living in a relatively new apartment blocks and we are requested to air out the room daily, so no damp sets in the building.

Well today, I had the door open, came back and the door has swung open from which i can only assume wind and smashed against the pole that is used for closing the blinds. It wasn't folded down, which is unfortunate.

It is quite a big piece of glass, only one side of the door, now we don't have any insurance for glass, but for weather damage. Does this work for us?

If not, whats the best advisable option to get it repaired? Has anyone experienced this and had a good experience replacing the glass without being over-charged?

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

As to repairs, best to ask your landlord. Mine has several companies they prefer to work with.

Re: Broken Window/Door

To me it sounds as if you have insured the landlord's building for him!

Don't you have a policy covering damage to a 3rd party, up to something like SFr 2 million costs?

The first photo needs to be rotated 90 degrees.

Agreed with Roegner, report it to the landlord and ask him to send someone.
