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 is scratched glass” – $5000.00 Lamborghini windshield glass restoration

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

We had been doing glass restoration for over 5 years when we were called on to restore a windshield that cost $5000.00 to replace!  The car is a 2008 Lamborghini that came in from New York, the land where I was born and raised!  When we first looked at the windshield scratches, they looked medium in severity, as if someone may have had some sand on a towel and inadvertently dragged it and scratched the glass.  There were about 6 – 6″ long scratches that we could easily see.  The majority in the drivers view.  Then we moved the car more into direct sunlight and we noticed long arching windshield wiper scratches also on the drivers side.  By the time we got done grinding out the scratches, we were more than 3/4 into the entire windshield.  So we ended up just resurfacing the entire windshield, to everyone’s surprise, without any distortion.  Grant Johnson, the service manager at Lamborghini Newport Beach was planning on just replacing the $5000.00 windshield when he found us and decided to give us a shot.  When we were half way done, he went next door and brought over some buddies from the Ferrari dealer next door to show off our specialty glass restoration!  I must admit, it came out quite lovely!  We really scrutinized it in the direct sunlight, making sure there were no, swirls, haze, or distortion.  Everything looked absolutely fine.  Now this wasn’t a new Lambo but it’s still worth around $150K so I may have felt a little nervous touching it!  But then after jumping in, I realized that “scratched glass is just scratched glass”.  Once you understand how it works, you can pretty much fix any kind of glass scratches.  It took a little longer than we though but we really wanted to make sure it was as perfect as possible.  So if anyone tells you, “you can’t get scratches out of glass without distortion”,  give them our number!  While this may have been a more challenging scratched glass restoration, it was certainly satisfying.  The pictures really fail to capture the detail of all the scratches we saw in the sunlight but hopefully from the pictures, you can tell they were pretty much all over.  These are beautiful cars that really move.  We just helped to make sure that no windshield scratches were to distract the driver of this Lamborghini.  Enjoy the pictures.  And remember, “When your view matters – Call Unscratch the Surface”   Based in Los Angeles.  Free estimates.  Nationwide availability.

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!”

“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!
