Orange County Glass Repair: Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s a list of some of the most common questions asked about our Orange County glass repair services. If you aren’t able to find your question on this list, feel free to give us a call!
Will the glass be weaker after you remove the scratches?
No, and actually, we’ll make your glass stronger. We use the same technique that is used to restore the windshields on jet planes, which, as you can imagine, have exacting standards for safety. The scratches in your glass actually create a structural weakness which makes it much easier to be broken—a method called “scoring” is actually used to cut glass, in which small scratches are strategically applied. During our Orange County glass repairs, we’ll remove less than a hair’s width of the damaged area and restore what is called the “uniform surface strength” of the glass.
Can you remove scratches that were not caused by graffiti?
Of course! No matter what the cause, we can make sure that the scratches are gone and the glass is fully restored. It doesn’t matter if it was done by a vandal or a pet!
Can you get scratches out of mirrors or other glass?
We can remove scratches from just about any type of glass. We repair scratched mirrors, scratched auto glass, glass partitions, glass tables, and nearly any other glass structure you can think of.
Is there a special way to clean glass that’s tinted or has anti-graffiti film?
It’s very important that you don’t use any abrasive cleaners or cleaning pads on window tint or anti-graffiti film. But as long as you use a mild cleaning agent and a squeegee, you should be able to clean it like any other glass. If you’re having your windows cleaned professionally, be sure to tell your window cleaner if you have anti-graffiti film. It can be difficult to notice it, and professionals often use razors and abrasives.
How long will anti-graffiti film last?
Sometime after three years you might start to notice a deterioration in the clarity, at which time you may want to replace your anti-graffiti film. The exteriors of buildings are harsh environments, and it’s difficult for anything to last terribly long outside. But fortunately, we use only the best anti-graffiti film on the market, which happens to come with a three year warranty.
