Presto is in the business of restoring architectural building window glass to its original luster. Glass restoration is
a highly-specialized service that requires the right technique, proper products and skilled technicians. Improper products and techniques can result in severely scratched and noticeably damaged glass including the use of abrasive chemicals in an attempt to remove the stains. Other common techniques include the use of harsh acids that can leave burns in the glass and surrounding architectural materials, creating a hazed look.This can mean an unplanned extensive restoration project which is costly and could have been prevented.

The products and techniques Presto recommends completely removes stains from the glass without leaving scratches, burns or harming the finish.The Presto Glass ReSurfacer System produces a highly-polished and reflective finish on glass and the products used are environmentally-friendly.


When restored glass is viewed in direct sunlight all imperfections can be seen. If you will notice the test area in the picture on this post of a glass restoration demonstration by Presto, you'll see a flawless finish.
