We wish to give our customers the best glass solutions. As part of this effort, we like to ensure that you are getting the right service at the right price. Therefore, we don’t want you to spend extra on replacement when repair could get you the same result. In cases where the glass has a minor damage, glass repairs are cheaper than replacing the entire pane. Our trained staff will be able to advise you on whether you need a replacement or if glass repairs would be enough to fix your issue.
Glass Repair for Scratches, Etched Graffiti, and Other Surface Flaws
Surface scratches on glass generally don’t extend all the way through the width. However, these do affect the visibility as well as the appearance of the pane. In some cases, scratches on glass can worsen over time, giving you an even more obscured view. A high number of scratches can even make a glass pane look cloudy and unattractive. In such case, glass repairs can help you restore your glass to its former glory.
We offer our skills in glass repairs and polishing to give you sparkling and scratch-free glass for your home. Polishing is a process that removes a thin layer off the surface of your glass. We polish off the glass until we reach the depth of the scratch. As a result, the surface of your glass becomes smooth again, making it look clear and sparkling.
Polishing can be effective for all kinds of glass repairs. This includes graffiti (both etched and acid), damage to due scraping or sandpaper, mineral marks, and even concrete or grinder spatter. In all these cases, removing a fine layer can help clean up the surface of the glass. Then, a final polish makes it look as good as new.
Glass Repairs for Chips and Cracks
In some cases, the damage to the glass is not limited to the surface. For instance, when there is damage to the pane due to impact, there can be a chip or a crack that extends all the way through the width of the glass.A chip can be dangerous if the surface is exposed. For example, a chipped corner on a glass table will have jagged edges. These edges can snag fabric or scratch your skin. Depending on the extent of the chip, it can injure you quite badly.
Even a crack can be more of a problem than just looking unattractive. Deep cracks have a habit of spreading. They tend to grow and become bigger. If they grow enough, the pane of glass can split and fall out.
Cracks and chips are deeper than surface scratches and are more of a hazard. In such a scenario, polishing is not enough to clear the problem. It may seem that glass repairs are not possible with such damage. However, with our experience and expertise, even chipped and cracked glass can be repaired!
We fix chipped edges and corners, deep scratches, and cracks with special resin
s and compounds. These are clear ‘glue’ that are used to fill up the crack or gap. The compounds act as a binding agent as it gets inside the damaged area and dries there. Our glass repairs skills even extend to recreating the chipped edges with these resins. As a result, any damage can be reversed, giving you undamaged, crack-free glass.
Protective Treatment After Glass Repairs Are Done
Once we have completed your glass repairs, we can also give your glass surfaces a protective coating. Protective films, coatings, and surface treatments can keep your glass from further damage. Such surfaces are less likely to get scratched or chipped. In case of films, you are also protected from shards in case an accident causes the glass to shatter!
Additionally, such coatings can give you additional features like protection from UV radiation, solar glare, or tinted and coloured glass. Furthermore, your glass is also able to effectively resist graffiti, impact, and much more, so you don’t require glass repairs as often!
