The GANA guidelines for cleaning tempered glass, are a big concern for me. I live in a very liberal state where the courts tend to view the business as the villain and the customer as the poor victim. I have been told that a glass waiver may not always hold up in court. A liberal judge could say I ignored the GANA guide lines and acted in an unprofessional manner. I should know better than to scrape a customers tempered glass with a razor.
I have been thinking about following the GANA guide lines and using only very fine steel wool. Of course I would charge accordingly. I have heard that it can take up to 5 or 10 times longer to remove paint from a window with steel wool instead of a 6 inch razor.
THIS IS MY QUESTION FOR THE GROUP
In a typical NEW house 2,500 to 5,000 square feet how many tempered glass windows would there be? Could all the windows be tempered or just a few around door ways and near the floor? If all the windows are tempered the price would be way too high ($10-$20 extra per window?) but if it’s only five or ten windows and a couple doors it might be feasible to use steel wool just to be safe. What do you think?
