Windshield Repair and Replacement
Your vehicle’s windshield is crucial to protecting you and your passengers. In front-end collisions and rollover accidents, the windshield accounts for at least 45% of the car’s structural integrity, so keeping it in tip-top condition is imperative. Allow the specialists at Glass Doctor® of Central Houston to restore your windshield to ensure your safety.
The most common types of damage are chips and cracks. In most cases, chips that are less than one inch in diameter, about the size of a quarter, and cracks that are three inches long or less, and that do not obstruct the driver’s view, can be repaired within an hour.
The repair process for chips and small cracks can be completed at any location in approximately 30 minutes. After inspecting the damage, one of our specialists cleans any debris from the area to be repaired. We fill the crack or chip with a special resin, which is cured and polished to ensure a smooth, clear finish.
Most insurance policies cover the cost of windshield repair. We’ve worked with most carriers and will gladly help you with the paperwork!
If we determine your windshield cannot be safely repaired, our specialists will replace it following industry standards set by the Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC).
Our Replacement Process
- The windshield is carefully removed, with special attention given to protecting the vehicle’s paint and bonding surfaces.
- A special AGSC-approved adhesive is applied.
- A windshield meeting the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard® (AGRSS) is inserted.
- The AGSC recommended one-hour drive-away time is observed.
While the windshield adhesive cures, we’ll review with you our Windshield Protection Plan. This standard guarantee promises we’ll repair all chips and cracks that might occur in your new windshield within the first year after replacement!
