ClearShield Application Process at DGM

Dulles Glass and Mirror is an official partner of ClearShield Technologies, LLC.

We are the only authorized ClearShield dealer in the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area. We uses ClearShield to treat our glass. While it is more expensive than other glass treatments, it is by far the best in the industry. We know, because we have tested it ourselves.

Other companies use wipes or sprays that coat the surface of the glass, protecting the glass for only a few weeks or months, requiring reapplication to restore its effectiveness. ClearShield is a one-time application, permanent coating product, and we stand by it!
