Fabricating Debris Repair – Custom Home – Park City, UT 09-29-2010

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Here’s another beautiful home one of our best guys is working on.  Approximately 400 sq. ft. of fabricating debris repair.  Amazing home with spectacular views.  Obviously, the windows get direct sunlight.  The widespread scratches in these large picture windows are very prominent in the direct sunlight.  There is almost no room for error.  If the scratches in these large windows aren’t removed flawlessly and the glass restored perfectly, the view will appear distorted, wavy, and hazy and will also show swirls.  We are one of the only companies in the U.S. that can actually perform this very unique service. When it comes to scratched glass repair and glass restoration, don’t take chances.  “When your view matters – Call Unscratch The Surface!.”

Widespread Glass Scratch Removal + Restoration – Biloxi, MS – Glass Resurfacing

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Fabricating Debris Removal (Resurfacing) Completed – On Schedule!

7,000 square feet of actual fabricating debris scratched glass restoration was completed in 16 days.  All the glass was also cleaned and polished with a special glass protectant.  While we did run into some scissor lift and boom lift issues, we still managed to complete this large glass restoration project only one day off our target date.  Yates Construction is a very large national commercial builder who was very pleased with the quality of our work.  More importantly, the owner of the Mississippi Coast Convention Center was also extremely pleased.  We will most likely be doing another smaller glass restoration project in the near future for Yates construction.   Some of the issues we had to deal with were waiting for the condensation to dry off before we started on a few days.  Needless to say, we always are able to adapt and finish our large scratched glass repair projects on schedule.  Our guys were averaging around 125 sq. ft. per day each.  We lost a few men for a few days because of being ill.  In addition, we lost quite a lot of time because of the lift issues.  The boom lift starter went out on Thursday and wasn’t working again until Monday!

We know of no other company able to restore and resurface heavily scratched and damaged glass at anywhere near this rate.  I have added some additional pictures that show the severity of how scratched this glass really was.

After six days, we are moving along well.  We have a four man crew with two rookies.  Still, we are averaging about 100 sq. ft. per man per day.  We made some adjustments after day three and are increasing our averages.  We had a scissor lift die on us one day and ran into general slow down problems, which usually happens the first few days on these large scratched glass repair projects.

Grinding crew is averaging about 500 sq ft per day (250 ) while the polishing/cleaning 2 man crew is averaging about 420 sq ft per day (210 sq ft each).

Here are a few pictures.

Scratched Glass Repair on 96 Kolbe Doors – Palos Verdes, California

Resurfacing 96 Scratched Glass Kolbe Doors – Terranea – Palos Verde, CA

This was an interesting glass restoration job we did.  This was at the beautiful Terranea Resort. Apparently the painters didn’t use a very good quality masking tape because when they sanded the edges of the trim before painting, they scratched right through the tape and scratched 95 Kolbe French doors!  Unfortunately, the scratches were so deep and so close to the edge, we had to have the trim removed and replaced so that we could aggressively grind and polish all the damage. That extra 1/2 inch really made all the difference between a mediocre repair and a great repair.   Of course, they thought it couldn’t be repaired!  We did a little demo and made scratched glass repair believers out of them all.   No other companies would touch it because of the depth and proximity to the edge.  When it comes to glass restoration and scratch removal, very infrequently do we find any type of glass damage that we can’t fix.  The only thing that even comes to mind was some very heavy welding damage.  Some of the molten metal burrowed so far into the glass that you could stick a pen tip easily into the glass damage!

Scratched Glass Resurfacing – Fast, Neat, and Flawless!

The challenging part about the Terranea job was the fact that all the damaged glass had an ocean view!  Therefore, distortion, waviness, or any haze would show up very badly in the afternoon sun.  An interesting side point.  One day while working on this project, we actually saw a whale and her calf swim right by where we were working.  We were that close to the water!  It was spectacular!  Needless to say, we removed all the glass scratches and restored the glass to like new condition.  We saved approximately 75% over replacement cost.  When it comes to glass repair, glass restoration, and most all types of scratched glass damage, we are #1!  Remember, “When your view matters – Call Unscratch The Surface!”
