Windshield Repair and Replacement
When it just so happens that the glass on your car needs to be fixed, Glass Doctor® of Aberdeen will help you with almost any kind of damage. We perform windshield repair within an hour, and are your local go-to expert for auto glass. We will fix everything from windshields, sunroofs and mirrors, to back glass and side windows on your vehicle.
We specialize in windshield repair and replacement and will help you determine how serious the damage to your vehicle is. By following the strict guidelines drawn up by the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC), we strongly recommend that windshields with cracks larger than three inches, cracks located at the edges of the windshield or big chips measuring larger than a quarter need to be replaced immediately.
Other indicators that can influence the decision to replace or repair the windshield are the location of the damage and how much time has passed since it occurred. If the crack is located directly in the line of sight of the driver or if you have a large chip on the window obscuring your side mirror, an immediate replacement is required.
If too much time has passed since the chip or crack occurred, dust and debris will accumulate, making any attempt to repair the glass more difficult. If you leave the damage unattended for too long, a successful repair maybe impossible, making a replacement necessary.
Windshield repair is a budget friendly, as well as ecologically friendly, alternative that is covered by most American insurance companies. Glass Doctor of Aberdeen works with all the major companies and will even handle all the insurance paperwork for you. Although the repair is most likely covered by your auto insurance, we advise you to confirm the repair with your local agent before we begin.
At Glass Doctor of Aberdeen, we always recommend a windshield repair when possible, instead of a replacement. This recommendation is based on convenience, cost and benefits in terms of insurance and environment. Our team of glass experts is capable of repairing your windshield within an hour. It is an inexpensive procedure, in most situations your insurance will cover it and you are keeping your old windshield out of the garbage.
The AGSC has established that the windshield alone determines up to 45-60% of the architectural strength of your vehicle in the event of an accident. Factors that affect the percentage are carmaker, production year and type of accident.
Following the guidelines recommended by AGSC, we promise to give you a peace of mind, windshield replacement.
- Carefully removing the damaged windshield, we avoid that any damage occurs to the paint or bonding surface. This could cause subsequent leaks or corrosion to your vehicle.
- Installing a new windshield of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality.
- Only using adhesives and material approved by the AGSC.
- Allowing at least one hour for the adhesive to cure after the replacement is completed to ensure safer driving.
