Frequently asked questions

1What is our Warranty?
Truthfulness is our policy. Each product we offer carries a separate warranty. Once installed (shower doors, thermal units, etc.) we will stand by our installation for a period of one year. The product itself will carry a manufacturers warranty against defect for 1 to 5 years, depending on the product.
2Why do edges of a mirror turn black?
Most often it is in bathroom mirrors were moisture and contaminates in the air attack the silver backing causing discoloring and flaking. Soapy water or incorrect cleaning liquids accumulate on the edges of the mirror eroding the backing. At Commercial Glass and Mirror we try to avoid the deterioration by sealing the edges of the mirror.
3What is the best cleaner for glass and mirrors?
There are many good brands on the market. The most economical glass cleaner though is a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water and wipe with a newspaper. The newspaper does not leave lint on the glass. On mirrors do NOT use abrasives, alkali, ammonia or acids as these destroy the silver backing.
4What is the difference between tempered and laminated glass?
Tempered glass is a safety glass used in doors and windows where safety is a concern. It is manufactured by heating and then rapidly cooling the glass. This cooling process causes the outside surface to form a hard “skin” which is up to 7 times stronger than “annealed” glass. When broken, it shatters into small, less harmful fragments. Laminated Glass is both a safety and security glass. It is made by bonding two pieces of glass together with a plastic inner layer called polyvinyl butyl. The plastic prevents the glass from separating when broken, which reduces the danger of serious lacerations. However, laminated glass cracks much easier than tempered on impact.
5Why do insulated or thermal glass units fog up?
All insulated units will eventually fail. Insulated glass is made using two pieces of glass bonded together with a spacer creating an air space in the center that produces the insulation. Even when properly installed, heat, cold, expansion, contraction, uv-rays and moisture eventually cause seal failure. Commercial Glass and Mirror Christchurch provides a limited 5 year manufacturer’s warranty.
