Windows in a house in Høybråten, northeast Oslo in Norway, were renovated and protected with the Ritec ClearShield Eco-System®, saving the owners significant stress, time and money.
The homeowners had their old roof professionally refurbished. They were happy with the results but later discovered residue from fluids sprayed on the roof tiles had blown away and drifted on to glass on the front of the house, bonding to it and ruining the view. This inorganic contamination on the glass became impossible to remove using standard cleaning products.
The roofing company was contacted, but ultimately their only solution was to provide financial compensation to have the affected glass to the front of the house replaced. The homeowners had no option but to accept this, mindful that glass replacement would still be a hassle. But worse still, the homeowners later realised all windows around the house were contaminated so this also needed resolving, adding to the expense and stress.
OverflateXperten – Ritec International’s Marketing Partner in Norway – approached the homeowners with a fast, cost-effective alternative: the ClearShield Eco-System®. This is a unique and proven system specially developed to renovate, protect and maintain glass in situ. Rather than having to put up with the hassle and greater expense of having all the glass replaced, this was undoubtedly the better option. Additionally, any future contamination would not bond to the protected surface and would be easily washed away.
OverflateXperten’s proposal to treat all windows around the house was accepted and they got to work. In no time, the glass was renovated with specialist Ritec products so looked as good as when they were first installed. The next stage was to protect the glass with award-winning Ritec ClearShield® to provide a ‘non-stick’, easy-clean invisible barrier, upgrading the ordinary glass to ClearShield Eco-Glass® which has many benefits:
- Always easier to clean and keep clean
- Glass looks like new for longer
- Resists staining and discolouration
- Resists bacterial adhesion and growth
The homeowners were delighted with OverflateXperten’s glass renovation and protection work, saying: “Thank you for a great job! We literally see the world in a new way now!”
This project highlights the many benefits of glass renovation with the ClearShield Eco-System®. Not only does the process save time, manpower, hassle and money, it is greener to have existing glass treated and re-used in this way rather having to remove and replace with new windows.
