Expert Windshield Repair and Replacement for Your Vehicle
Auto glass damage due to vandalism, road accidents, or extreme weather conditions can be expensive and inconvenient. Still, it doesn't have to be. Glass Doctor® of Battle Creek, MI, can quickly provide an assessment and windshield repair or replacement. Don't get talked into unnecessary windshield replacement; our auto glass specialists can generally repair cracks and chips in your vehicle that measure three inches or less.
Professional Windshield Repair or Replacement
Glass Doctor of Battle Creek, MI puts your safety first; our windshield specialists only replace your car or truck window if necessary. Here are the key elements that determine if you need new auto glass:
- Position: A splintering windshield crack reaching the window edge will likely worsen and could be a danger on the road. If your windshield damage interrupts your line of sight while driving, we recommend replacing your glass.
- Dimensions of damaged area: Car window cracks over three inches generally need replacement. The same applies to a chip of more than 3/8 of an inch.
- Duration: If your windshield has been cracked for a while, debris in the cracked area may make auto glass repairs ineffective. In that case, we recommend replacing your car's windshield.
Windshield Repair Saves Money
Glass Doctor of Battle Creek, MI, typically advises customers to have their windshield repaired by our glass experts rather than getting a whole new windshield for their vehicle. When it's safe to do so, we recommend repairing the windshield because it's:
- Quick: We complete most windshield restorations in less than 60 minutes.
- Effective: Windshield repair is a safe alternative to car window replacement that stops cracks in their tracks and keeps chips from spreading.
- Economical: Fixing a windshield is inexpensive compared to replacement.
- Earth-Friendly: Every windshield repaired means one less piece of glass in landfills.
- Deductible-Waived: In our experience, many auto insurers waive deductibles due to the cost savings when you choose to repair instead of replace your windshield.
