A question that’s commonly asked is how long does putty take to dry.

Believe it or not it actually takes between 8-12 weeks before its dry enough to be decorated. Some people don’t leave it this long but we recommend you do.

One of the reasons putty has been used by glaziers for so long is that if painted it never really goes hard and dries out completely.

Putty is used as a sealant more than a fixative, and after it has been painted will remain reasonably flexible and a good sealant for years to come, not hard not soft.

If you see a derelict house where the paint has dried and peeled off, you will usually see the putty has dried out completely too, it has cracked and fallen away, all the natural linseed oil which keeps it as a good sealant has dried out.

If you have any putty queries or would like to buy some putty please do not hesitate to contact us.


When companies like us, Waller Associates do a marketing campaign we promise certain different services that encourage new customers to come to us and existing customers to stay with us.

You can promise a customer the world, but the important thing to do is to see your promise/service through.

For example, on one of our flyers it says we can guarantee supply only stock glass cut to size next day. It is vital that if we have said we can do it with a next day delivery that we pull out all the stops and deliver it.

If we don’t deliver the consequences are that we get a bad reputation, that the customer does not return again and most importantly that that customer will not pay.

Another aspect that we try to think about when promising a service via marketing is workload and the workmen.

Does your work force know what is expected from them, when they get an order of works do they know it needs to be cut and out by the end of the day?

Talking and discussing workload with your work men is also important.

Maybe even discussing with them before the promotion goes out, for example letting them know what you propose to do and asking them if they have the right equipment, stock and staff.

We ensure we do all of the above and continue to please our customer with our reliable service

7mm Pyroguard FD60 and 7.2mm Pyroguard FD30 – Waller Glazing Services trading under Waller Associates Ltd is known in Kent for its competitive prices and its efficient service including very fast free local delivery. Lately, due to our website being continuously updated many companies big and small from London have been using our service.

This is something that we stock and can cut the same or the next day.

Word is slowing getting around and we are thankful for all our new and existing customers. The fire glass we stock is definitely more of a specialist product than we thought and this shouldn’t be taken for granted which is why I am writing this blog.
