Here is another window that was saved after being vandalized. Graffiti was scratched into this window, the glass was large and of a unique shape. Replacement would not have been cheap, in fact we could resurface it again 4-5 times for less than it would cost to replace once (hopefully we don’t have to though!)
People often ask if removing scratches from the glass weakens it. Good question, but no, removing scratches doesn’t weaken the glass. Actually, having scratches in your glass weakens it, if something hits your glass with force, most likely the area where the scratches are is where it will break. This is how glass is cut to size, they don’t cut it with a saw like a piece of plywood, they score it and then tap it and the glass breaks along the scored edge. With this in mind, it’s easy to understand why removing scratches from your glass actually STRENGTHENS it rather than weakens it.
Make sure whoever you are considering to resurface your glass has plenty of Before/After photos and videos, references from happy customers and carry proper liability insurance. They should also be willing to do a demonstration on a portion of your glass before you commit to a large project.
When you need your glass resurfaced to as close to perfect as possible, call Glass Savers.
As you can see, we were able to get the scratches out, and without leaving any noticeable optical distortion or obvious sign of repair.
Over the years, we’ve run into countless scenarios like this one, where our client was told by the “other guys” that the scratches couldn’t be removed. Not only are we able to remove the scratches that no one else can 9 times out of 10, but we do it without leaving behind all of the obvious signs of repair that are common with most other glass “repairs”
When you need glass resurfacing, and you need it done right, we are the only ones you need to call.
Don’t take our word for it though, in addition to the largest online gallery of previous jobs we’ve done, we also offer no-obligation demos of our services because we know you’ll be thrilled with the final result we deliver.
