Customer reviews for Glass Restoration services

Here's a review from yesterday :

All too often we are prone to comment on what we perceive to be the failings of service vendors who don't "measure up".  In this case I do believe Glass Restoration did  the job and did it well!  Thus, I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to avail themselves of their service.

One sloppy sub can make a builder look bad.

I learned this the irritating way, and I see it happen again and again. A builder does a great job of building a home, only to have a sloppy sub ruin the glass. Fortunately, I also learned to fix scratched glass. It saved my rear on a big Siesta Key job, then I put the skills to work for others. I have come to realize that people are not going to stop scratching glass, because it is so easy to do, and slowing down to do their work right is not competitive.

Silicone staining on butt glass windows

We polish stains from Glass. The joints on butt glass windows have to be sealed, and it is usually clear silicone that is used. Cleaning excess silicone is harder than it looks. Left over silicone shows up later and needs buffed off.

Glass scratch repair in Waterlefe, Bradenton FL

Thanks for the recommendation Fox Mirror and Glass. Every time I get a recommendation from a Glass shop, my job is to make them look good. After all, the glass shop solved the customer's problem by knowing who is able to do the needed work. Since we specialize in glass repair, not replacement, we have honed our craft to the highest level. Few people are able to achieve the quality work that we do every day. Thanks again, Fox Mirror and Glass.
