Architectural windows are subjected to severe conditions which may result in damage to the surface of the glass. This damage is unable to be removed with standard window cleaning procedures, and requires glass restoration in order to remove the glass stains and spots. Etched windows have a cloudy appearance that makes the windows look dirty from both the interior and the exterior of the building despite having your windows cleaned on a regular basis.
After the damaging elements have corroded the surface of the glass, often referred to "stage 2 corrosion" the glass should be resurfaced to effectively remove the damage. A word of caution. Inexperienced glass cleaning companies often damage the surface of the glass while attempting to restore the glass. It is important to restore a sample window in order to ensure that the desired glass restoration results are being achieved. One should examine the test area in direct sunlight from a variety of angles in order to ensure that the glass is not burned or scratched prior to having the windows restored on the entire building.
When scrapers are used to remove paint or caulking from glass windows, they often get scratched. Improper glass restoration products, or improper use of glass restoration products can also inflict scratching to a glass surface creating a stainless steel look for glass. Scrapers used during the construction clean up process can also scratch glass. In our experience the majority of window scratches occur during the construction phase, and are usually not noticed until later. We can even remove deep scratches that other contractors are unable to remove.

We use high performance glass protective treatments and or glass protection that can be applied to architectural window glass surfaces that will help to prevent the further development of glass stains as well as glass scratching. One such product called Glass Defender MD will install a rubberized, silicone protective coating, that will last on the surface of the glass for many years to come - helping to prevent stains and scratches. When stains such as minerals come in contact with the glass surface they will reside on the protective coating instead of easily adhering to the microscopic cracks and crevices of the glass surface. As well, this rubberized coating will resist scratching much better than unprotected glass because the surface at a microscopic level is flexible. We always recommend applying a glass stain and scratch protective treatment to newly restored glass especially in New York, New York.
In 2002 glass restoration was performed on a property that was stained by sprinkler systems. As part of the procedure, a glass protective treatment was applied to the glass in order to prevent the stains from redeveloping. The property owners elected not to maintain the building, and the stains redeveloped. However, in 2006 when a new owner of the building called us to propose a solution to the problem at the building, we were able to easly remove the stains from the areas that were previously restored and treated. The picture to the right shows where the stains could be easily removed with a towel. Our glass protection process protects the glass from intense damage and yields easy cleaning for the future.
For more information, we have included "Is Your Building Green" (PDF), a cost analysis from an actual building, demonstrating the savings possible when comparing new technologies with technologies typically used to maintain commercial properties.
