Learning More About Windows

Hi there, I’m Michelle. I am excited to talk to you about windows. The windows in my home were all custom selected for their strength, durability and beauty. The windows allow me to look out beyond the walls of my home to view the world around me. I enjoy watching the sunrise through the windows while I eat breakfast and enjoying the way the light reflects off the glass. I hope you can use the information on this website to develop a love for windows as well. Thank you for visiting my site today. I will see you again soon.

How To Repair Scratches In The Glass Of Your Sliding Glass Door

Dogs often jump up on glass doors when they see something outside that they want to get to. When they jump on the glass, their claws can sometimes scratch it and damage it. Over time, the scratches can make it difficult to see out of the glass door. Fortunately, it is not overly difficult to repair the scratches in the sliding glass door, if they are not too deep. The guide below walks you through the quick and easy process for repairing scratches in a sliding glass door.

Clean the Door

The first thing you need to do is clean the door. Mix equal amounts of rubbing alcohol with warm water in a spray bottle. Spray the door from top to bottom with the mixture and then use a clean rag to wipe away any dirt and grime that may be stuck to the door. The alcohol mixture removes everything quickly and easily, without leaving a film on the glass.

Sand the Scratches

At a home improvement store, you can purchase a small sanding disk that attaches to your drill that is designed to lightly sand glass. The disk will have a small peg that can be inserted directly into the end of your drill. Use the drill at the lowest setting that you possibly can and lightly sand the areas of the glass that are scratched. You do not want to hold the disk in one area of the glass at any point. Constantly move it around so that the glass is sanded down evenly.

Clean the Glass Again

Once the scratches are sanded down, you will want to clean the glass with the alcohol mixture again. This will remove any fine dust or debris that is on the glass.

Fill Small Scratches

Once you are done with sanding the glass, you may still see very fine scratches left behind. These were deep scratches that could not simply be sanded away. At a big box store that sells many different items, you should be able to find rouge that jewelers use to repair scratches in jewelry. Apply the rouge onto a clean, dry cotton cloth and rub it into the scratches in a circular motion. Once the rouge has filled the scratches, use another clean cloth dipped in the alcohol mixture to wipe away any excess rouge.

Repairing the scratches in a sliding glass door should not take too long. If you try these repairs and do not see the difference you want to see, contact a local sliding glass repair company and see if they can handle the repairs for you.
