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!

Scratched Glass – Large Window Resurfacing – Beverly Hills, CA

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Beverly Hills, CA – When a young CEO of an extremely popular health drink company discovers large areas of scratched glass all over his beautiful Beverly Hills home, he doesn’t freak out.  He contacts us.  “We are Unscratch the Surface, We ARE Scratched Glass Repair!”

There was approximately 1500 sq ft of damaged glass. The majority of the exterior had some kind of strange widespread fine scratching on the glass.  Some of these pieces of glass were 12′ high.  Some were only 7’x7′ Fleetwood doors that would all slide out of sight to open up the home to an exquisite view of the ocean in the distance.

Also discovered were deep scratches on the master shower.  This was quite an amazing shower, especially since you could see the outside view while in the shower!  Almost like being outside!  The scratches in the 1/2 inch tempered glass came out quickly and easily without any distortion whatsoever.

The exterior did have a few areas with significant pitting from either grinding or possibly cutting masonry.  This type of glass restoration is a little more difficult and time consuming but repairable nonetheless.  While we did not reach any solid conclusion about what really caused all the glass scratches, we were able to renew the glass to like new condition, thereby restoring the awesome view.

Scratched Glass – Glass Table Resurfacing – Newport Beach, CA

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

This table was quite unique.  The base was carved from a 200 year old Italian tree stump.  Unfortunately, that didn’t prevent the beveled fine glass table top from acquiring numerous deep scratches.  With this type of glass restoration, there are a number of things to consider.

  • Use caution when removing glass scratches near the bevel.  If you’re not careful, you can change the bevel and ruin the table by creating an uneven bevel.
  • Care must be taken to not leave any haze, swirls, or distortion.  These are extremely easy to see when you are almost always staring down thru the glass.
  • Glass table tops are not usually tempered.  When working on scratched glass that isn’t tempered, temperature must be monitored to ensure the glass does not break.

This custom home in Pelican Hill, CA was beautiful with exquisite views, both inside and out.  Unscratch the Surface took steps needed to make sure the view looking through this stunning rare glass table stayed that way!
