Glass Repair Wizardry

Repairing glass is something that, seemingly, should be impossible. Glass is a precious snowflake of an object, and thus once its feelings are hurt (or it’s shattered into many pieces), that should be it.

Commercial solar systems are going to be done right this time, at least according to interviews with the writing team. They’ve done interviews with companies in Brisbane servicing all sorts of …
