Fixing scratched glass – Malwarebytes office – San Jose, CA

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Here’s a unique scratched glass situation we did recently.  The company that built out the new office for Malwarebytes in downtown San Jose, CA called us to repair 15 scratched glass office panels.  I assured them there were closer glass repair companies but they “didn’t want to take a chance” since none of them showed much experience or track record.  We stayed right in downtown San Jose which was beautiful.  Everyone was very nice at Malwarebytes and the work took about 6 hours and everyone was quite pleased.  San Francisco is much closer to San Jose than we are and there are quite a few glass fix companies that advertise scratched glass repair but cannot do flawless repairs. Don’t take chances with your expensive glass if it gets scratched.  Go with the leader in glass scratch removal, Unscratch the Surface!  Staying far ahead in glass restoration.  “When your view matters”

Scratched Tempered Glass Resurfacing – Lexus Dealer – San Diego

Tempered Glass – Resurfacing Large Scratched Glass Panels

Here’s another fabricating debris repair job we did in Escondido, CA, near San Diego, CA.  This was a huge project where they found quite a few areas of bad tempered scratched glass that got scratched when the window cleaners came through and scraped the glass during construction cleanup.  It’s hard to determine if it was carelessness on the window cleaners part or just fabricating debris.  Either way, we were able to completely resurface the damaged and scratched glass areas, restoring the glass to perfect clarity again, and without leaving any distortion.  While many other scratched glass companies are claiming they can do this, again, we were called in to actually do the glass restoration, even though there are companies much closer than we are.  If you have a large area of glass with scratches, especially tempered glass, please make sure that you have us or another company perform at least a 10-12 square foot area of glass resurfacing that will get afternoon sun.  This will really show the true quality of someones glass resurfacing skills.  Check and see how long it takes them to completely restore the glass back to clear.  10-12 square feet should take an hour or less.  You don’t want some company taking up residence in your business, commercial project or custom home!  You want them to get in, get out.  These are just some things to look for when seeking out a scratched glass repair company or Window Replacement Fort Collins.

Scratched Glass Repair Professionals – Glass Restoration Experts

We have done our homework and there aren’t any other companies that can equal our speed, neatness and quality.  We stand behind that statement and have proven it many times over now.  We’re not the cheapest but we guarantee we will save you around 70% over replacing the scratched glass on most  resurfacing projects.  We are the best at what we do, which is restore scratched glass to look like new glass without any scratches, haze, cloudiness, or distortion – guaranteed!  Here are some pictures of the project we recently completed in Escondido, CA.  If you need someone to remove graffiti from your glass, there are many companies capable of doing this adequately.  However, I would recommend someone who is using the glass repair tools that I designed.  Call us if you need someone in your area to remove graffiti from your storefront glass.  You definitely don’t want distortion in your glass.  That will be much more noticeable than the scratches.  You might be able to see the scratches from 15 feet away but a bad glass graffiti repair is visible from 100 yards away!

Glass Restoration – Orange County – CA – Bulgari – South Coast Plaza

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

When Bulgari of South Coast Plaza in Orange County CA needed glass restoration, they found Unscratch the Surface!

What happened was, when the vinyl displays were getting trimmed in the storefront windows and display cases, they needed to be trimmed with a sort of scalloped edge.  Apparently one of the blades acted just like a glass cutter and really gouged the glass pretty deeply…everywhere!  They had another company come look at the glass and of course they wanted to replace the scratched glass!  We traveled down to beautiful Orange County, CA to check out the scratched glass and access the damage.  It was surprisingly scratched worse than we even imagined.  This wasn’t glass graffiti damage, it was just accidental glass scratches from a film trimming blade.  The pictures don’t really do justice to how deep the scratches were in the glass.  They actually were as deep as some scratched glass graffiti repair jobs we’ve done in the past.  Of course, this job, being a very expensive storefront, with bulletproof glass, had to be as close to perfect as possible which meant, no distortion whatsoever, no swirls and no haze.  What made it even trickier was that there were many halogen lights overhead in the ceiling.  If the scratched glass repairs weren’t absolutely perfect, the swirls and haze would light up like …..they were lit up! Overhead lighting really shows up scratches and incompletely polished scratches in glass.  It did take longer than we expected but they did come out as the pictures do attest to.  What was funny was that we felt like we were on display in some sort of scratched glass repair zoo!  There must have been at least 25 people who just stopped right in front of the glass and just watched us grind and polish.  At first, it was a novelty, but after awhile…well, I felt like an animal on display!  Lots of little kids would tap on the glass and get my attention and wave.  That was cute actually but the people that just stopped and stood there and watched..that was interesting to say the least.  Bottom line, the scratched glass was flawless repaired, leaving no distortion, no swirls, no haze, and for a fraction of the price to replace that very expensive bulletproof storefront glass.  If you ever find yourself in need of glass restoration in storefront glass, custom home windows, yachts, classic car glass, or any other glass surface, call the experts in glass restoration, the company that started the glass restoration revolution, Unscratch The Surface, Inc – we’re here to help with your glass repair needs.  When your view matters – Call Unscratch The Surface. 888-986-7272

(50+) Scratched Window Resurfacing – Custom Home – Agoura Hills, CA

Monday, October 31st, 2011

“Windows and Doors, Meet scotchbrite pad”.  Now, scratch, rinse, repeat….49 more times!”

October 2011 – Glass Resurfacing is when over 75% of a piece of glass has scratches, usually from careless window cleaning or excessive fabricating debris.  Glass scratch removal or glass scratch repair is more of singular or smaller areas of scratched glass repair.  The vast majority of companies that fix scratched glass DO NOT and CANNOT resurface scratched glass.  The latest trend for our company personally is that we have been hired by our counterparts in glass restoration (not really competitors since they cannot effectively resurface scratched glass) to remove the haze and swirls they have left in some glass resurfacing jobs.  This only supports what we have been saying all along, that other glass restoration systems, or at least the ones we designed in the past are not designed for large area glass resurfacing.  We recently completely resurfaced a scratched tempered 3×6 tempered window in 38 minutes, from start to finish.  We are always striving to improve the speed, neatness and quality of our proprietary glass restoration system.

Here’s what we’re working on.  A beautiful home in Agoura Hills, Ca, just north of Los Angeles.  What apparently occurred took place on the interior glass.  The windows have interior wood trim stained and varnished.  What seems to have happened, since no one really knows, was that some stain and varnish seeped under the masking tape onto the glass surface of each window that was stained.  Normally, a simple razor blade could easily remove any stain, and spots on the glass.  Yet someone, apparently took a scotchbrite pad and proceeded to remove the excess stain and varnish from the “edges of the windows” but also much of the central areas of the windows too!  Anyone who has ever attempted scratched glass repair  knows that removing scratches from the edges is difficult at best.  There are about 30 French doors (tempered) but about 20 windows that are completely scratched that are NOT tempered which makes things extremely precarious.  Tempered glass is about 5 times stronger, not harder, than annealed glass which makes it much more resistant to breakage from heat or vibration, which occurs during glass resurfacing.  If all the windows that needed repairs were tempered, this would be an easy resurfacing job.  It’s approximately 500 sq. ft. of glass resurfacing.  So far, we’ve done 7 windows that were not tempered – no breakage!

Glass Resurfacing – What it is and what it isn’t

“Glass resurfacing” is a term that is getting thrown around the internet a lot these days.  Here’s what glass resurfacing is and what it actually means to us.  We use the term “glass resurfacing” when we “completely resurface”  or resurface 75% or more of a glass window or door.  We do not feel that doing a small section, less than 25% of a piece of glass, constitutes glass resurfacing.

Why do we bring this up?  Mainly because very few companies can effectively resurface an entire glass window or door.  Here’s what happens when most scratched glass companies attempt to resurface glass (here’s what you see when you look up into many other scratched glass repairs) .  So far, literally every window we have had to repair on this project was at least 80% resurfacing, plus, almost edge to edge, to about 1/4 and closer to the wood trim.  Impossible?  Not at all.  Time consuming? Yes.  Difficult?  Not really.   But only because we have tools specifically designed both for resurfacing but also for tight glass restoration “right up to the edge” .   Another glass repair company came and looked at the scratched glass and informed our client that ” the scratches could be removed but the windows will look wavy.”   The worst part is that we even hear that from people who claim to be able to perform “no distortion” scratched glass repair!  One more thing I forgot, many of these windows get late afternoon sun and the scratches really looked bad when the sun in on them.  If they are poorly resurfaced, you would still see haze and swirls like the picture linked to above.  So, if you need glass restoration  or resurfacing, make sure to check the “demo” window when the afternoon sun hits it and make sure you “look up into the light” to really examine the quality of the repair to make sure the glass has been thoroughly polished back to flawless clear condition.  Then call us!

Check out the scratched glass pictures.  We’ll put up more as we get them.

Glass Restoration – At Famous Landmark Hotel – Anaheim, CA

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Scratched glass makes people very unhappy, especially if it’s in beautiful Anaheim, CA. Here are a few pictures illustrating what we were repairing.  The glass had been previously partially repaired but we were called in to complete the  scratched glass repair and resurface scratched window glass.  There was some haze and swirls which can happen in poor lighting conditions or from not being able to view the glass scratch repairs from multiple angles.  Even when we were working on it, many times, the repaired areas looked 100% complete but when viewed from the ground and looking up into the sunlight, some areas of haziness could still be located.   This experience shows that glass restoration is definitely a combination of art and skill.  Different tools are designed for optimum results for different scratched glass scenarios.  We just happen to have a much larger variety of tools for removing scratches in glass.

Scratched glass repair video – Severe scratches completely removed! Ventura, CA

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Glass restoration video update – Scratched glass graffiti repair – DEEP!

Scratched glass vandals seem to be getting smarter these days.  The latest glass restoration project on 454  Main st. in beautiful, sunny Ventura, CA,  was severely scratched throughout.  It was either from a diamond or a carbide.  Either way, you can see in the video the jagged edges of the glass scratch which is usually from a diamond scratching glass.  Unlike any other glass scratch repair kits out there, we are able to grind the damage out very quickly, which is the only way to minimize any possibility of distorting in the glass.  The longer a person grinds and polishes glass, the more likely they are going to put distortion in the glass.  We have been doing this type of repair longer than anyone in the Los Angeles – Orange County – San Diego – Santa Barbara area!  Don’t take chances.  Stick with the scratched glass experts!  Please share this article and video with others.

When glass gets scratched, windows need resurfacing, not replacing! – Riverhead, NY

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Even expensive glass gets scratched – Professional restoration, not replacement is the solution

This exclusive golf and country club in Riverhead,  N.Y. near The Hamptons in eastern Long Island, N.Y. caters to the rich and famous.  They boast a beautiful golf course which I had the privilege of playing at and it was spectacular.  However, they too discovered a common problem in the construction and glass industry, scratched glass problems.   They went with the most expensive glass and windows, which was also the best that money could buy.  Yet, still, because of careless window washers, hundreds of these windows have become severely scratched.  We did a demo and are now working out the logistics of the best way and time to perform the repairs with the least amount of disruption to the members of this exclusive golf club, since many of the damaged windows are in the public areas.  Therefore, distortion absolutely could not be an issue.   Many of the scratched windows have amazing views of Long Island Sound.  We happened to be there on one of the nicest days of the year and it was simply breathtaking!  Looking forward to returning for this amazing scratched glass repair project.

Glass resurfacing polishing video – 1 sq. ft. per minute

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Here is a time lapse video we did.  It’s very short only because the whole video only took about 13 minutes, including a 1:30 phone call!  We were testing some new polishing pads, backing pads, and polishing compounds (anyone notice the price of cerium oxide lately??)  The speed is definitely up there with our other polishing combinations.  The nice thing is that this isn’t just a partial polishing like other dry grind systems.  This is completely polished out, no haze, no swirls, no distortion. All other dry grind systems are guaranteed to leave swirls and haze after the polishing step.  This is verified by getting down below the repaired area and look up into the light overhead.  If you don’t believe me, check it yourself.  We have received lots of calls from these other dry grind guys and they always want to know how we are able to get these swirls completely out.  There is no other system like ours that is both super fast and able to completely remove all the signs of the grinding and pre polish steps.  We also receive emails from guys asking us what system we are currently using.  We aren’t using any commercially available glass restoration system.   It’s definitely not GlassRenu, GlasWeld, SRP, ScratchHog, GlassGuru, or any other scratched glass repair system – period.  So if anyone tells you otherwise, they’re lying!  If you are interested in seeing a demo on a commercial scratched glass repair project, please call us.  Based in Los Angeles, CA – commercial or specialty jobs performed throughout the US and abroad.  “When your view matters – Call Unscratch The Surface”  888-986-7272
