Unsightly scratches on external or internal glazing can ruin the appearance of a new building or impact on the overall building façade condition and impact on its appeal.
We’ve all come across damaged glass from time to time, from car windshields and mirrors to scratches and cracks in windows. Having a scratch on your glass is often annoying and can, if untreated, cause deeper problems. This often happens when seasons change, as hot and cold temperatures cause glass to expand and contract, exacerbating scratches. We can fix this!
There are two main methods of dealing with scratches in glass. The first one is to buff them out. We apply wax to a sander (specially designed for glass) and just file the rest of the glass so it’s all smoother. If the scratch is left untreated it may develop into a crack, so smoothing this over makes it less likely to happen . The other method is to apply a resin to the scratch, which will fill in any holes and leave the window a little bit thicker and stronger.
To start, we’ll need to know where the glass scratches are, and how deep they go. This means that we might need to do an assessment before we begin to fix the problem, but this shouldn’t be an issue because we can usually bring all of the necessary equipment with us and fix any issues in the same day. If you’ve got a bigger job- such as a glass curtain wall that’s been a bit battered and has several scratches- it will take longer, but we’re confident that we’ll be able to solve the problem and it’s likely that you won’t have to worry about replacing the glass.

We don’t just remove scratches from commercial glass, we also clean windows, protect glass, and provide a range of specialist services to help maintain the external building fabric, ensuring the building is a true reflection of vision. We regularly inspect the building fabric as part of a cleaning programme, reporting defects and plans of action back to you to help provide a platform for a pro-active maintenance solution.
We take great pride in helping clients protect their complete building envelope, helping them manage the condition through-out, not just the quality of the glazing, we use specialist access methods such as rope access, abseiling, cradles and MEWPs to access all sections of a building envelope. We provide regular condition and performance inspections to the building façade, assessing materials such as cladding, curtain walling, stainless steel, and window gaskets.
The work provided by Building Transformation was excellent. Their product and building exteriors knowledge is detailed, comprehensive and practically applied to the client’s needs. They offer a professional, detailed, high-quality and customer- focused service which meets the short, medium and long-term needs of the client, and provides practical, cost-realistic advice.
Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site. The quality and level of support provided by Building Transformation is priceless to any client/contractor.
The approach and advice on setting up the works at the Wolverhampton Civic Centre were first-class. Building Transformation’s attention to detail was excellent and the RAMS were followed meticulously to every detail. We were delighted with the works and service, and would not hesitate to use them again, nor hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.
A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight to deal with the traffic issues, while the site remained open throughout. The project took around three weeks to complete and went exceptionally well; the Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work round dynamic operational issues. The clean was of a high standard and has made a significant different to the image of the building. A very difficult job done well.
I am very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. Also the level of cleaning provided and attention to detail is much appreciated.
I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping slowly win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Needless to say Building Transformation is a name that is now becoming known and respected.
Building Transformation gave great communication throughout our projects.
It will be my pleasure to recommend Building Transformation.
Just signed off the job with Richard. Myself, the bosses and the tenant all are very pleased with the work. It definitely looks rejuvenated just a case of painting the concrete window surrounds in the new year to finish it off. Have found your company and staff very professional and helpful which has facilitated a project with minimal inconvenience and disruption to our in situ tenants.
I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far. Dave and the team have done a great job.
I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.
At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.
We are very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. The operatives on site were very professional and communicated to us at all times.
The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.
Thank you for all the work that you carried out in cleaning the outside of our school. We are delighted with the results. You have managed to completely remove heavy staining from many areas around the building.
We found you extremely easy to work with: your quote was reasonable, you carried out the work quickly and you were very flexible in terms of timings.
We will definitely be working with you again! Your engineers were very polite and accommodating every time they visited site and have done a first class job. I will be recommending Building Transformation to everyone!
