When to Repair the Windshield!

"Having your windshield repaired is the appropriate choice when the size of the damaged area on your windshield is smaller than a quarter"

Auto glass repair process

The windshield repair process involves injecting a clear liquid resin into your damaged area. Once the chip and all extending cracks are filled with a UV light, which causes the resin to cure and harden. This hardening process restores the structural integrity of your windshield and prevents the damage from getting any worse. In most cases, a successful repair will make that damage area look much better than it did before the repair took place. In some cases you won't be able to locate the damage at all.




Benefits of windshield repair


Having your windshield repair can save you money, especially if you are paying out of pocket for the work to be done. On average, repair is 75% less expensive than having your windshield replaced.

Size and depth


Repair of cracks up to 61cm (24in) is withing permissible limits, auto glass with more severe damage needs to be replaced.

Location


If damage is in the driver's line of sight or very near the windshield's edge, usually it cannot be repaired. Some damage are very difficult to repair, or cannot be repair:
  • On inside of the windshield
  • Deep damage on both layers of glass
  • Damage over rain sensor or internal radio antenna
  • Damages that reach into the driver's critical viewing area
  • Very long cracks (i.e. over 18-24 inches long)

  • In cracked windshield repair, air is removed from the damaged area on the windshield with a specified vacuum injection pump. Then using the injection pump, clear adhesive resin is injected to replace the air in the windshield crack. The resin is then cured with an ultraviolet light. When done properly, the damaged area's strength is restored, as is 90-95% of the clarity. Auto glass chip repair usually take about 15-20 minutes.
