All The FREE Home Improvement Info You Could Ever Want

For anyone in the Rochester area that is even considering any type of home improvement, this is a great, free opportunity to shop around the local companies without making a dozen phone calls.  With exhibitors covering every facet of home improvement, outdoors and in, you can ask questions and get some face to face answers from experts in a variety of fields.  We are looking forward to discussing some of our most popular residential glass services with Rochester area residents, and helping them save a few dollars in the process.

One of those popular residential glass services is our “Get the Fog Out” procedure, which can repair windows in which the seal has failed and caused a permanent foggy appearance.  We are really thankful that we have been able to offer this service which has saved our Western New Yorkers thousands upon thousands of dollars over the years, not to mention the tons of glass that is effectively insulating homes, instead of rotting in landfills.   If you have fogged windows in your home, please come talk to us (for free) before you even consider the costly and inconvenient process of window unit replacement.  We may just be able to help you out, the green way, at a fraction of the cost!

And before you head out for the home show, don’t forget to tune into Jim Salmon’s morning home repair clinic on WHAM 1180!  Ray Sands Glass’ General Manager Dave Burns and Sales Manager Chris Green will be on the show discussing our residential fog removal process – how it works and how it saves you money.  You can tune in between 7am and 8am to hear all about Get The Fog Out, and you can catch us at the Fall Home Show Saturday from 10am to 8pm or Sunday from 10am to 6pm.

We look forward to talking to you this weekend, whether it’s over the airwaves or face to face!

What Else Would You Like to Find at Ray Sands?

Over the years, we have expanded our services from our roots in windshield replacement and chip repair to include many other auto and residential services that we thought could benefit our community.   With the introduction of more services we can now remove those dents and dings from your car’s body as well, or apply a protective film to your newly installed windshield and top of the line window tint for side and rear windows.  We can even restore your car’s headlights to a shiny, bright, like-new condition – and don’t forget the windshield wipers!

One of the more recent additions to our residential roster, our residential window repair, has saved our customers tens of thousands by repairing fogged windows that would have otherwise needed replaced.  And our visually clear residential tint can help protect from harmful UV rays and improve your home’s energy efficiency, while still complying with strict HOA policies.  We also provide any type of custom cut glass you may need, from patterned glass shower doors to tempered safety glass for sliding glass doors.

But we can’t take credit for all of these ideas, many of them came from our community!  Whether it be our Rochester locals, our online readers, or our friends in the auto glass business – sharing ideas helps businesses work better with their community.  Idea sharing  is why we do this blog, and now we would like to hear from you…

Today we want to find out if there is anything else we can do for you.  Are there any services that you think are lacking in the Rochester area, that we may be able to provide?  A certain brand or type of auto product that you would like to buy locally?  A service you heard about elsewhere, that isn’t available here?  Let us know what you want in the comments below – all ideas will be considered!

2011 Rochester Home and Garden Show

Ray Sands Glass is excited for the Rochester Home and Garden Show next weekend, March 26th and 27th at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.  We have lots of great residential services to discuss this year for your home’s windows and other interior glass as well.

This year we have seen a lot of interest in our residential window film, with people becoming more aware of the amount of energy being exchanged through their windows.  Some are looking to keep out the sun’s harmful UV rays, and some to reduce their monthly energy bills (and therefore their carbon footprint.)  Whatever their motivation, we are delighted at the opportunity to discuss the benefits of residential window film, answer questions and show off some of our most popular home products!

Another residential window improvement service that we have seen a growing interest in, is our “Get the Fog Out”  window restoration process.  This technique clears the existing window of moisture and uses specially made valves to prevent future moisture buildup, while preserving the insulation value of a double pane window.  All without the hassle, expense or wasted glass of  of a window pane replacement.

This year we will also be presenting a display of some of our work with framed and custom mirrors, which we haven’t featured at home shows in the past.  But we have really enjoyed this more artistic aspect of working with glass, and some of our recent projects show how fun and beautiful it can be to think outside the box!

And of course we will be exploring some of the home uses for Aquapel, everyone’s favorite water repellent for glass ,on exterior windows and glass shower doors.

So while you are out next weekend perusing the variety of home improvements, don’t forget about your windows!  Hope to see you there!

In this spirit, Deals has launched a new website, to make getting windshield replacement or residential glass repair easier than ever!   Along with their easy-access glass quote request form, there is information that helps drivers with damaged glass make informed decisions about what is best for their automobile.  It’s great to see another shop that is encouraging a greater knowledge about the value of OEM glass and top quality adhesives.

Deals Glass Services can provide customers in their North and South Carolina service area with many of the same services we provide here.   Deals does windshield repair and OEM auto glass replacement with the same types of top quality adhesives, installed by well trained, NGA certified technicians.

They also provide a similar residential window repair process, which can remove the fog that develops inside the glass due to seal failure.  And for those who have waited too long for the repair process to be feasible, Deals can replace just the glass in your home’s windows, saving you the cost and trouble of replacing the entire window.
