The construction industry is one of the most common places where we can discover glass scratching problems. In recent years protection measures are gaining popularity. Unfortunately there are some building companies who are still not very careful when working with plasters, bricklayers & welders. Project managers and construction superintendents know that manufacturing defects, blemishes from handling, subcontractor damage or cleaning scratches to the brand new glass on their jobsite can wreak havoc with the budget and schedule.
Construction debris is one of the things that does window damage which is most difficult for repairing. This includes paint, varnish or texture overspray, materials like cement, plaster, stucco, concrete, mortar or grout, silicone, waterproofing materials, glue or stickers.
In terms of difficult removal, graffiti damage ranks right up there on top . It’s one of the worst kinds of window damage. If we already have such glass damage, we need the most experienced technicians with the best professional equipment and tools to restore the glass without the risk of breaking it and minimizing the distortion.
When a technician is inexperienced, they may damage it further more rather than repair it. Improper professional restoration techniques can cause unnecessary distortion of the glass, which will be very noticeable and spoil the window’s appearance. Protecting glass during construction is vastly superior to repairing it after damage occurs. Attempts to remove stucco residue, concrete splatter, paint or joint compound can destroy thousands of dollars of glass in a few hours. We can install a temporary film on glass both interior and exterior to protect it from most such damage during construction. Upon completion of the project this film can be easily peeled away to reveal clean, factory fresh glass.
Should your glass become damaged on the job, having an experienced repair professional to call on can give you the peace of mind and information needed to move forward in dealing with an otherwise bad situation.
