Your Windshield Won’t Chip Away After Our Repair

How Do You Know if Your Windshield Can be Repaired?

Not all cracks or chips are created equal. Some are worse than others, and those can’t be repaired without breaking the entire windshield. We use the following criteria to determine if your car’s windshields can be repaired or need to be replaced:

  • Is the chip smaller than a quarter?
  • Is the damage located away from the edge of the windshield?
  • Is the crack or chip only within the first layer of glass?
  • Is the glass still intact where the chip occurred?
  • Is the blemish out of the driver’s line of sight?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, then your windshield can most likely be repaired.

How Does Windshield Repair Work?

So you’ve called us and set an appointment. Our technician meets you, and once they determine the damage is fixable, they’ll get to work.

  • The technician uses cleaning pads to gently remove any small bits of glass from the damaged area.
  • With a special injector tool, they’ll center over the damage to create a seal over the area of missing glass.
  • They then fill the injector with high-quality resin and carefully push the resin into the chip or crack. This resin is what reinstates the integrity of your windshield. It’s vital they get this part right.
  • Once the resin has had time to sit, they remove the injector. Now it’s time to fill in the missing glass to give it a smooth finish.
  • They use a filler to cover the chip and let it sit until it’s dried, then scrape off the extra.

And they’re done. The whole process takes less than hour, and after it’s done, your windshield is back in business. It’s important to note that repairing a crack or chip does not mean the blemish can’t be seen. The job is meant to keep your windshield functioning, not make the damage disappear entirely.

While you’re giving your windshield a make-over, you might want to take a look at those wiper blades. We’d be happy to install a new set for an additional charge.

Why Should You Fix a Cracked or Chipped Windshield?

Besides the crack or chip potentially being illegal, here are three more reasons you should get that chip fixed.

  1. It’s quick, easy and cheap. Repairing your chip or crack can be done in a snap, and you don’t even have to leave your driveway or parking lot to have it done. Plus, it’s a lot cheaper than replacing your entire windshield in the event that your windshield breaks.  In most cases, your insurance company will cover the entire cost of the repair with no deductible.
  2. Over time, your windshield will break. When the integrity of your windshield is compromised with a chip or crack, over time, that crack will get bigger. One good bump in the road or hit from an object can cause it to spider out.
  3. Simply put, it’s your ticket to safety. A compromised windshield can’t do its job – and it has a big job to do. Find out exactly what role your windshield plays.

It isn’t just about how the glass looks, though that’s important. It isn’t only about keeping bugs out, though that matters. Ever wonder why your windshield goes through a safety inspection in the first place? Because your windshield is vital to the performance of your car during an accident. It breaks, you break.
