Contact Glass Renu (PM on WCR) or I believe it is SRP and find out who in your area has a system. From there flatter the hell out of em, maybe scratch their back (clean the carpet or gutters).
We had an issue this year where we were accused of scratching the glass. I found a local company who had a system explained my situation and they did the work and charged me employee hours. Worked out well, best of luck to you.
There are some simple facts to remember when you think the glass is scratched. If it’s not tempered/heat strengthened FD won’t be present, scraping dry glass won’t scratch it, and if there isn’t any rust on your blade the razor/scraper won’t damage the glass.
Can you post a pic of the damage?
If it’s an insert (like a storm window) just take the thing to a local glass guy and have him replace the glass. Should cost about $15 to $20. The amount of time you are going to spend fixing it yourself might not be worth the 1 hour it will take a guy. I took a broken storm to a company here and had the thing replaced and back in the customers home in 1 hour.
Hello Mr. Clean,
I’m Dangerous but you can call me Dange if you’d like…Say If you still have residue from the sticker per Mistersqueegee’s question then your razor should still be able to move it, but some oil flow can help move that stuff if you have any.
A small 1" razor is handy if you keep it on top of your ear like a pencil…makes things quick. Using it in the slicing motion works quick for small stickers or bug stuff,or any small crap that needs a quick razoring.
I know others on this forum might be critical of the razor on the ear trick but I’ve been doing that for years, sometimes I even forgot that I had it on my ear because it’s unobtrusive, people are always telling me “yooooooooouuuuu have aaaaaaaa razor in your ear” ! I say oh that’s why my wife’s pillow has blood on it in the morning…LOL !
Really though an old time “Son of ETTORE” showed me that trick…Try it !
I think the Jugg-Man made a good point if that is the issue.
Also describing your thoughts by you using information helps others to understand what it is you are trying to lay out for others to visualize and understand, it’s called communication. Ergo your point was well made…
Say I’m loving your avatar…are you an organic gardener ? Up there in Saskatchewan you must have a short growing season but outrageous soil EH ! The new start in your hands shows that your endeared to new growth. I’m an organic gardener !
ALWAYS… even if I have to lick my finger to wet the window. (I wouldn’t let a customer see me do that) There’s just too much friction otherwise even on a window you just squeegeed. I never take chances with scratching glass and yes a scraper will scratch glass, I’ve done it.
There are only a handful of ways for a scratch to occur while using any razor. Rust on the blade, fabricating debris, other trapped grit (like sand) under the blade. Using a razor on glass dry will not scratch it unless one of those other elements is present and then it wasn’t the razor it was the other element.
I know all that, I’ve been cleaning windows since I was 18. Wetting a window minimizes the chance of a scratch. If you ARE scraping, then there is some sort of debris. The more debris the more you better rinse the the window like in after construction cleaning. Why would anyone want to take the chance? and then what? blame the scratch on the window?
How could you even scrape a sticker off a window if it was dry? It would smear all over, it’s glue.
