Windshield Repair and Replacement
Dealing with windshield damage does not have to be an unpleasant experience. Glass Doctor® of Carmi, IL takes the stress out of windshield repair and replacement service. Our team will assess the extent of any damage to your windshield, and recommend the proper course of action for your individual needs.
Depending on the state of your windshield, repair service may be sufficient to restore the glass. Windshield damage cracks over three inches in length will typically require the windshield to be replaced. This is because cracks may compromise the strength of the glass, and increase the likelihood of structural failure if the damage is severe.
A vehicle's windshield is an important part of your vehicle's safety system. Windshields do not simply serve as a way to screen insects and debris; they contribute considerable structural stability during accidents. As such, ensuring that your windshield is in good repair will assist you in minimizing injuries during an accident.
Chips in your windshield are the other common type of damage that causes the windshield to need repairs. Several factors, such as the depth, diameter and location of a windshield chip may determine whether repair is recommended or not. Additionally, if the chip has been present for a long duration, it may be filled with dirt and grime that make the windshield more difficult to repair.
