Auto Glass Care
A crack or chip in your auto glass ruins your car’s appearance and may even distort your vision while driving. However, there is no need to worry - auto glass repair and replacement is just a small job for our specialists at Glass Doctor® of Carmi, IL. We work with every type of glass in your vehicle, including windshields, sunroofs, back glass, side windows and mirrors.
Our specialists at Glass Doctor of Carmi either repair or replace windshields, depending on the extent of the damage. We are usually able to repair small cracks and chips, which involves cleaning the impacted area, filling it with resin, waiting for the resin to cure and then polishing the repair site to a clear finish. Windshield repair is often the best option because it is inexpensive, fast and better for the environment.
To receive a repair, you must bring your vehicle to us as soon as you notice any damage. If you keep driving, cracks may spread and become too large or chips may fill with debris and become too difficult for us to clean.
With the extensive damage that requires a full windshield replacement, there is also no time to delay. Your windshield accounts for a significant percentage of your vehicle’s structural integrity, contributing to occupants’ safety in an accident.
We follow the Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) standards for all our windshield replacements. This includes using only AGSC-d approved adhesives, training our specialists in industry best practices, and replacing the glass only with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality glass, bearing in mind features such as humidity and rain sensors, antennas and temperature gauges.
G12 Windshield Guarantee
If you receive a windshield replacement from Glass Doctor of Carmi, you will automatically be eligible for our G12® Road Hazard Guarantee, which entitles you to a free repair or replacement if your windshield suffers any damage due to normal road hazards in the following 12 months. Our auto glass customers may also like to consider upgrading to our G12 Value Package. This provides you with extra protection for your windshield along with coverage of labor costs, new windshield wipers, and Clear Choice™ protectant, making your glass resistant to scratches and stains caused by weathering, pollutants and mineral deposits, thereby improving your visibility when driving and reducing the risk of damage.
Other Auto Glass Replacement
Modern vehicles only use tempered glass for their windows, sunroof, quarter glass, and back windshield. This means that, unlike the repairable laminated glass of your windshield, the only option for fixing the damage is an auto glass replacement. The good news is that tempered glass is very safe - in the case of impact, this glass breaks into small chunks that will not cause you injury. Bring your vehicle to Glass Doctor of Carmi and our specialists will provide you with an accurate cost estimate before we start work.
As soon as you notice any cracks, chips or other damage in your auto glass, contact us at Glass Doctor of Carmi. We will solve your problems right away, even work with your insurance company to file your claim and have you back on the road, driving safely.
