Can my windshield damage be repaired?

Windshield damage is often caused by rocks hitting your windshield while driving thus, creating chips, and cracks. Today, we have very light windshield designs that allow for the glass to splinter into many cracks and splits that can actually be repaired. Most cracks and chips less than 6 inches can be repaired while ones that are larger than 6 inches may call for a full windshield replacement. It is important to understand that a repair is not just used to beautify your windshield. It is a bonding solution to restore the windshield’s structural integrity and increase its overall safety even after the damage has been done.

Why should I bother with a repair?

It is likely that a small crack or chip in your windshield will spread. If this happens while you are driving, it can cause a dangerous distraction. The most common causes of a chip spreading are hitting potholes, going over speed bumps, temperature changes, or the accumulation of stress on the windshield from everyday driving. Once the chip spreads, depending where it is on the windshield, can distort a driver’s view – it is important to repair the chip or crack before this happens for the driver’s safety.

How does the windshield repair work?

A vacuum is placed over the damaged area, the air, moisture and any dirt is removed, and the resin is injected penetrating and filling the little cracks that have formed. A UV light is used to harden the resin, getting your windshield looking as good as new.
