Glass Repair Contracting Team Saves Hawaiian Vacation Home
June 22, 2009

GlasWeld recently completed a contracting job on a custom, interior glass walkway in a Hawaiian beach home. The home's stair system and walkway features glass panels set into hand-carved mahogany channels. The glass had become scratched during installation and replacing it would have destroyed the custom mahogany, costing the
homeowner thousands.

"Because of the way the home's stair and walkway system were constructed, removing the glass would have been next-to-impossible," said Shawn Mart of GlasWeld, who worked on the project. "Using the Gforce System, we were able to work around the existing structure and repair the hundreds of scratches in this focal point of the home."

R.S. Weir General Contracting, the construction company for the home, initially contacted GlasWeld about purchasing the Gforce scratch removal system for its own use. After consulting remotely with GlasWeld's contracting team, the company decided to bring in two of GlasWeld's glass restoration experts to complete the job. While there, the team also polished damage from a custom shower door in the home's master bath.
