Windshield Repair and Replacement
A cracked or chipped windshield isn't something you can ignore. The damage weakens the glass, decreasing its ability to keep you safe if you get into an accident. Instead of continuing to drive, your best option is to call the professionals at Glass Doctor® of Bismarck. We take pride in handling auto glass care in a timely fashion and use only the highest quality products for our windshield repair and replacement work.
Windshield Repair in Bismarck
The most affordable solution to restore a damaged windshield is repair service. Instead of having to replace the entire windshield, a small crack or chip, which isn't in the driver's line of sight, can be cleaned up and filled in with resin. This reduces the cost of time and parts. In order to be repaired, chips cannot measure more than 3/8 of an inch and cracks cannot be longer than three inches.
Before repairing your windshield, our experts thoroughly clean the damaged area to remove dust and dirt. Then, resin is injected into the crack or chip. The resin cures quickly, so your windshield repair will be completed in less than an hour.
Windshield Replacement in Bismarck
When severe damage makes windshield repair impossible, Glass Doctor of Bismarck will replace the entire windshield. Specialists will remove the broken windshield from your car and match its specifications when selecting a new windshield to ensure a perfect fit. When replacing the windshield we follow the Auto Glass Safety Council's procedures, the only standard for auto glass replacement in North America.
According to the procedure, new windshields must cure for at least one hour after replacement is complete. So, while you wait, we go over our windshield replacement guarantee. The G12® Road Hazard Guarantee ensures if your windshield is damaged within 12 months of your replacement service, we'll replace or repair the glass for free.
Windshield Service Factors
Damage factors influence our specialist's decision to perform a repair or replacement.
Damage that extends 3 or more inches or chips larger than 3/8 of an inch are characteristics of severe damage that usually result in windshield replacement.
Location of Damage
More often than not, when the outer edge of the windshield has splintered, the windshield will need to be replaced. The same is true if the crack or chip is in the driver side of the windshield disrupting their visual zone.
Age of Damage
The longer you ignore the damage; the greater the odds we'll need to replace the windshield. Dirt and water in the damaged portion of the windshield further compromises the windshield's integrity.
Glass Doctor of Bismarck will always opt to repair your current windshield if it is a safe option.
