Plate Glass Repairs

Have you ever seen a BB hole in a storefront window and wondered if it is repairable? Despite the cone-shaped plug of glass missing from the large side of the break (usually on the inside of the glass), this type of damage is often repairable.

Discussions about plate-glass repair are not common within the windshield repair industry but do deserve acknowledgment. It is one more inexpensive way for you to expand your current business and earn extra income. The material cost for a plate-glass repair is approximately $8, and it is not uncommon to charge $100 or more for a single repair. Commercial plate-glass windows sometimes cost hundreds, or even thousands of dollars to replace depending on the size and location of the window, so repair is very attractive, although an often overlooked option.

Repairable SOLID plate-glass damage is generally a “bullseye” type break which looks like a small hole, about 1/8″ in diameter on one side of the glass (commonly caused by a BB or Pellet gun), and a cone-shaped hole about ¾” to 1 ½” in diameter on the opposite side of the glass. The smaller hole is on the side of the glass hit by the object causing the damage.

If the cone-shaped plug of glass can be found and is intact, it can sometimes be united with the hole that it came from using a light coat of Magnibond resin, followed immediately by a generous coat of Delta Kits’ Plate Glass resin. After the plug has been secured to its proper position, 2″ wide, clear box sealing tape is placed over the repair on the larger side of the damage to hold the plug in place during the curing process. Next, cure the large side of the damage for 5 minutes.

The Next Step

After bonding the plug back in place, fill any voids around the edges of the plug with MagniBond followed by Plate Glass Resin. Cover with a curing tab and cure for 5 minutes. After curing, scrape the repair with a razor blade at a 90-degree angle and buff out with pit polish. Keep in mind, that use this option if the plug is flush with the surrounding glass surface.

If the cone-like plug of glass is not found or does not fit in the hole; the plate-glass repair process is a bit different. Place a piece of clear box sealing tape over the large side of the damage. Leave a small space at the top of the void. This will allow the tip of the resin dropper access to the area. Place another piece of clear box sealing tape on the small side of the break. Completely cover the hole so that resin does not leak out the side. Once resin fills the area of the break, place a curing tab over the space. Then cure, scrape, and buff the repair following the same process as above… Continue Reading
