CUTTING-EDGE RESTORATIONS

Pioneers in Glass Restoration, The Glass Guru was the first company in the US to offer a money-saving Foggy Window Repair process for failed dual-pane windows. In fact, when our founders started the business in 2004, Foggy Window Repair is all that was offered.  Although our business model has greatly expanded since that time, our Foggy Window Repair service continues to fuel the growth of the organization locally and nationally. The Glass Guru is the only franchise that offers this cutting-edge service which continues to be a huge differentiator and competitive advantage for us in the market place.

 

Foggy Window Repair

Window seal failure is a common problem for aging windows and an inevitable issue for almost all residential and commercial buildings with insulated glass. A failed seal around the insulated glass of a window allows moisture-laden air to get in between the panes. This can lead to condensation between the panes and the glass looking foggy, wet or dirty as well as degrading the window’s insulating ability. Utilizing cutting-edge window restoration technologies, The Glass Guru can help our customers solve their foggy window problems at a fraction of the cost of replacement.

Our unique foggy window repair process quickly and permanently eliminates moisture and residue from failed thermal panes while also restoring the insulating “R-Value” and preventing future damage. Unlike glass or window replacement, our moisture removal service provides fast, effective, on-site window restoration without removing the glass! Not only will customers see and feel the difference, but we back it up with a fully transferable 10 year warranty. As an organization, The Glass Guru has successfully restored over 75,000 windows, saving millions of dollars in replacement costs and many tons of non-recyclable glass from going to the landfills.

Our Moisture Removal Process:

  • Is non-disruptive and efficient. Can be done quickly, so you will not lose valuable time.
  • Is economical; a fraction of the cost of replacement.
  • Restores the window s insulation (“R”) value, so energy costs are reduced.
  • Is environmentally responsible. No worries about glass disposal.
  • Is backed by a fully transferable 10-year warranty.
Scheduling a window repair is streamlined since there is no glass to order or install. Most restorations can be done in 20 minutes or less. No one knows Foggy Window Repair like The Glass Guru.

Stain Removal

Residential Water Stain Removal

Water-stained windows can impact customer’s view as they become increasingly unsightly over time. Customers can forget about cleaning water stained glass on their own with off-the-shelf products that don’t live up to their claims. Our skilled technicians utilize the latest water stain removal technologies to clean water spots off glass, restoring it back to like-new condition. We do the difficult work so our customers don’t have too!

Most windows can be restored in 15-30 minutes depending on the size and severity of the damage. After the stains have been removed, we can help prevent the stains from coming back with an optional protective coating that allows customers to easily maintain spot free glass for the long term.

Commercial Window Stain Removal

Commercial buildings, hotels, restaurants, sports arenas, autos, trains, boats and more. If it’s water stained or spotted glass, chances are we can restore it to like-new condition at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Customers don’t have to live with hard water spots on their windows. We can help make the glass on homes or businesses look like new again. No job is to big or small for The Glass Guru.

Wood Rot Repair

Window sill and frame rot is a common problem in wood windows. As water leaks in around the paint/caulk, heat from the sun warms creates a perfect environment for rot fungi. As the fungi spreads, it deteriorates the wood and can cause significant visual and structural damage to the window sash and frame.

Others use epoxy or hardened wood putties to patch the problem. This is just a short term fix to an internal wood rot problem. We prefer to remove unwanted wood rot and replace it with new wood for a lasting repair. We can remake a portion or all of the wooden sash, jamb or sill to replace just that portion instead of having to replace the entire window. Our goal is to save customers money and earn future business.
