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

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

Million Dollar View – Ruined by Scratched Glass | Laguna Beach, CA

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

This house was truly impressive with it’s massive windows and stunning ocean and mountain views from high above Laguna Beach, CA.  The residents were extremely nice also.  We managed to repair 26 fairly large scratched tempered windows in 3 days.  However, we had a new guy who was scared to attempt any glass scratch removal.  Too much pressure and no room for error on this one.  So one person managed to remove all the glass scratches, then proceeded to polish the scratched glass.  The new guy, Evan, handled all the cleanup and did quite a bit of assisting but no grinding and no polishing on this one.  He just wasn’t ready yet.  What was interesting about this job was a scratched glass repair company from Orange County, CA,  I believe, also was bidding this job.   It really illustrated just how far ahead we are when it comes to the competition out there.  Now, I’m not at all implying the other glass restoration company couldn’t have completed this job with similar results.  The amazing part was how much they charged, but also how many men they were going to need and how many days.  Now remember,  ONE man did ALL the grinding and polishing in 3 days.  The other company guessed they would need 4 men and take 3 days!  After we started the job we were informed that this other company from Orange County was going to charge DOUBLE what we had charged!  And we gave a price without even having any idea what the other company charged.   We don’t price match or try and beat others prices for one simple reason.  We have yet to find anyone who can match our speed or quality, so why should we match their price??!!  Apples and Oranges!

Anyway, it’s a beautiful house in a beautiful area. The sunsets would sink into the silhouette of Catalina Island, it was amazing.  The majority of the really bad scratched glass was also in the windows with the awesome views.  Distortion was not an option.  There were 2 or 3 other glass guys who attempted to remove a few scratches but gave up and determined they were too deep and there were way too many of them.   We did not subscribe to their point of view!

Here is a quote from the owner of the property I received in an email two days after we finished, ”

“Hey Rick! My windows look so good! The architect stopped by with his students and was in awe. Thanks for being so careful and doing such a wonderful job!”

It’s hearing things like that from satisfied clients that make this work truly rewarding.  It’s nice to be appreciated for a job well done.  It’s about more than just making money.  It’s about helping people solve, what seems to many, to be a problem with no realistic solution other than to replace all the scratched windows and that’s just not a financially realistic possibility many times.  And when you do a job for appreciative people, and get to enjoy the amazing views for three days, it really makes for an enjoyable time.  Work doesn’t seem so hard under those circumstances.  Hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we did experiencing the views live.  We also hope you’ll call us if you ever encounter any scratched glass fiasco’s.  All we can promise is that you’ll get an excellent job at a truly affordable and reasonable price, completed faster than any other company is capable of.  What you won’t get is, distortion, haze, or swirls – even in late afternoon sun – guaranteed!  So remember, “When Your View Matters – Call Unscratch the Surface!”

High Profile San Diego Restaurant Glass Tagged with Graffiti – San Diego, CA

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

When someone scratched glass graffiti into 7 windows at “Searsucker” Restaurant in the Gaslight District in historical San Diego, CA they called the glass restoration company with more experience than any scratched glass repair company in Southern California,  they called Unscratch the Surface, Inc. Los Angeles.  We drove the 178 miles on Saturday morning the day before the Superbowl since Searsucker would be closed until 5:00 pm.  Although some of the scratches in the glass were extremely deep, we were testing out some new abrasives and polishing pads and compounds which were amazingly faster than we had experienced before.  Just when we thought we had everything all “dialed in”, we made some huge leaps forward and improved the most sought after scratched glass repair system known to man!  We are keeping pace with the latest technology, never resting on our laurels, or anybody else’s laurels!  Always striving to stay ahead of the back when it comes to scratched glass repair,  It appears we just lunged ahead of the pack again.  We actually performed a very deep diamond scratched graffiti repair of about 6 sq. ft. in about 30 minutes, complete!  Even thought the glass scratches were extremely deep, there was little to no discernible distortion.  One of the biggest advances we have made has to do with the fact that we are currently producing our own custom backing pads.  The density of the backing pads can either cause the pads to vibrate and bounce,  causing deep swirls, haze, and distortion.  We actually created a unique dual density pad that gives our technicians both amazing “feel” while the work but also allows them to get amazingly fast results.  After talking to a few other scratched glass guys out there, we found out that we are about twice as fast as most glass scratch repair companies out there.  When it comes to large glass resurfacing projects, we are currently able to resurface scratched glass between 3 and 5 times as fast as other scratched glass companies.  I didn’t think it was possible to improve on our system but we did.

Therefore, we hope that if you ever find scratched windows or storefront glass in need of glass graffiti removal or just plain old scratched glass repair, that you will do as Searsucker Restaurant in San Diego, CA did, remembering that, “When Your View Matters – Call Unscratch the Surface, Inc.”

P.S. Unfortunately, we inadvertently deleted the pictures of the repairs before we were able to upload them on to the website.  Sorry.

Scratched Tempered Glass Resurfacing – Pacific Palisades, CA

“Scratched Glass Repair? – We ARE Scratched Glass Repair!”

This job looked like fabricating debris again.  These very large tempered windows were in need of some serious glass restoration!  They would catch the morning sun and the only words that came to mind while looking outside were, “scratched glass“!  The scratches were literally over the entire glass surface.  As you can see in the picture, we resurfaced almost the whole window/door.  They were approximately 48 sq. ft. each and there were seven of them.  We resurfaced around 350 sq. ft. in 2.5 days.  A little slower than usual but we had a new guy still learning.  Glass restoration on windows that get early morning/ late afternoon sun have very little room for error.  If not done flawlessly, there will be swirls and haze, only visible in the low light.  When the sun is overhead, the hazy windows might look fine.  We know of no other glass repair / restoration company able to accomplish this type of glass resurfacing that can match our results.  There is also no other scratched glass repair system that can perform at the speed and effectiveness of our specialized system.  We have made so many adaptations, adjustments, refinements, and improvements, that our glass repair system now truly stands alone on its own, with no competitor even close by.  To date, we have never lost a job out to a competitor.  We recently came to the conclusion that, we do not and will not get into a price war with any of our so called competitors.  The reason for this was simply stated.  Why should we match their price when they can’t match our quality?  The old adage has been proved true again and again, “You get what you pay for.”  So remember, “When Your View Matters – Call Unscratch the Surface!”  Often imitated – Never duplicated!
