Abrasive Scratches - 'Brillo Scratches'

Types of damage to glass

More commonly found on shop front windows and especially fast food restuarants and high street banks, abrasive pads scratches, as the name may suggest, are caused by using abrasive pads such a billo pads, and in some cases wire wool, to remove marks and stubborn stains from glass. 

Glass does not react well to abrasive pads, but then you never find these things out until its too late.


The good new is that it can be repaired quickly and easily, leaving no distortion, restoring your glass to its original clarity.

Repair Solutions: Professional Technician

If you have a large area or multiple units to repair, our advice would be to call a professional glass polisher. As they say, time is money and this includes your time.

It would be misleading to try and give a general cost of repair on a website as each scratched glass situation is different, but for large areas of scratched glass or for multiple units, our services offer genuine savings, often in excess of 80%, on the cost of replacing scratched windows and doors.

For areas greater than 32 sheets of A4 we would recommend you ask for a senior technician to visit your site to assess the works required and provide a written quote. We do not charge for site assessments.

A quick note about D.I.Y Kits. There are a number of kits on the internet that claim to remove scratches from glass. Please be careful. Kits with just a felt pad and polishing compound will not remove anything other than very, very fine hairline scratches. The same can be said for kits containing 'Jewellers Rouge', polishing powder, usually pink, which you mix with water.

We have spent 3 years developing our D.I.Y Scratched Glass Repair Kits. They contain the same abrasives that our professional technicians use to acheive outstanding distortion free repairs on all types of glass, which is why any D.I.Y kit sold by The Scratched Glass Repair Company comes with a DOUBLE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.
