Is there any way to fix scrathes in glass (store front) windows? A customer of mine has a few windows with scratches (not deep but not shallow either). He asked me how to fix it and i told him i'd look into it. Thanx in advance for all the help.

you would start with a coarse grit and progress to a fine grit. If claims of a magic way to move the glass molecules around to fill in the scratch sound unbelievable--they just might be. Just polish the glass two three times it would go away.

Apply polishing or jeweler's rouge to a lambs wool buffing pad. You can either buff the scratch by hand using a circular motion or with an electric buffer on medium speed.

I have always wondered the same thing but never got around to finding an answer. I have a small scratch on a front window at my home and tried silver brasso and unless you knew the scratch was there before you would never know it now. While it is not completely gone it is very minute and almost invisible to the naked eye.

My advice stay well clear, i used to woork in the motor trade and we had a kit for taking scratches out of glas consisting of an abrasive paste specialised ssanding disks and a eletric polisher, takes hours and doesn't always work

Worth remembering that your insurance probably wont cover you for glass repair, so if it goes wrong it may well end up coming out of your pocket.


A local window cleaner here tried polishing out a scratch - did not realise there was a coating on the glass - which made the window look really really bad when some was scratched off - had to pay for a replacement.
