The following process is carried out to repair a scratch:

  • To start the area that is damaged is inspected and assessed carefully for the best method of treatment. Sometimes it can just be polished but on deeper damage it may have to be ground out first. The work area will also be marked and cleaned.
  • The scratch is removed from the windscreen by a specially controlled grinding process.
  • Then the ground area is carefully repolished to a finer grade of surface finish  to restore most of the optical clarity.
  • Finally, specialist polish is used to remove all traces of grinding.
  • The result is glass in “as-good-as-new condition.”

“I was mortified when I noticed my brand new car had a chip in the windscreen right in my line of vision. I had a repair done by another company and it made it worse!!! I called Glass Doctors who came to my house and re-did the repair and the result was fantastic. I can barely see where the repair is, so instead of driving along and being distracted by that irritating chip, I can now look through a clear windscreen!!”
