You know whether to schedule a glass repair or replacement when you find the neighbor kid's baseball in your bedroom. However, not all glass breakage is so obvious. Sometimes glass just cracks or breaks. Dubbed "spontaneous glass breakage", it's a lot more common than you may think, especially if the glass was poorly created or installed. It might seem like a poltergeist is at play, but there's a very reasonable explanation behind those mysterious cracks, chips and shatters.

For instance, consider that there are over 50 inclusion varieties in float glass. However, while nickel sulfide stone is the most common inclusion discussed in "glass circles", it's actually the most rare-and inclusion issues are just one reason for spontaneous glass breakage.
