Windshield Repair and Replacement
Cracks and chips on your windshield may seem minor, but the damage could compromise the safety of passengers. If you are unsure of the best service for your pane, ask the Glass Doctor® of Annapolis expert team. Our specialists have the experience and skills to determine the best solution for your needs quickly. We offer on-site assistance, so we can determine the service you need without disrupting your day.
Based on decades of experience, the specialists at Glass Doctor of Annapolis consider several factors to determine whether windshield glass replacement or repair is the best option:
- Timespan: The longer cracks and chips remain unaddressed, the more likely dirt will accumulate, which makes it more difficult to repair the windshield successfully.
- Location: Once the crack or chip splinters to the outside of the windshield, it has a higher propensity to spread, which will require replacement. If the damage is directly in your line of vision, repair is typically not suggested because it will not cure clearly. Instead, it leaves a noticeable outline of the fixed area.
- Size: While there are always exceptions, most chips bigger than 3/4-inch or cracks longer than three inches require windshield glass replacement.
At Glass Doctor of Annapolis, we partner with all of the major insurance carriers. We will manage the claim process, including paperwork. However, we always suggest you verify your coverage with your insurance agent before having windshield glass replacement or repair.
We recommend our customers act quickly when their windshield is damaged. A repair service is more convenient and costs less than replacement. Our team will complete windshield repairs in less than an hour. Because our team can come to you, your schedule is not affected. Best of all, most insurance companies will pay for the repair and waive the deductible.
Our Repair Process
The process of repairing your windshield starts with removing all of the debris from the damaged area. The specialist may use a tool to make a new passageway for the resin, which is carefully injected into the impacted area. Afterward, we cure the resin and polish it to a brilliant finish. Our goal is to repair the windshield, so you will never know the damage existed.
If you need windshield replacement service, it's imperative to have it as soon as possible. The Auto Glass Safety Council® (AGSC) reports the windshield accounts for up to 60% of your vehicle's structural integrity in a rollover accident. Our auto glass experts follow all AGSC protocols when replacing your windshield, including using original equipment manufacturer (OEM) glass, to guarantee your windshield is replaced in the safest and most expeditious manner. We ask our clients to schedule a time to have replacement service completed at our shop because the work must be done in a controlled environment.

After the replacement is complete, we explain our complimentary G12® Road Hazard Guarantee, which provides 12 months of continuous windshield protection. If your windshield is cracked, chipped or damaged, we will perform windshield glass repair free of charge.
