Windshield Repair and Replacement

A ding, chip or crack in your windshield may not seem like a big deal, but each blemish may compromise the safety of your car. Many drivers are surprised to learn there are dangers associated with driving a vehicle with a damaged windshield, even if the damage is small and does not obstruct your view of the road.

If your windshield was recently damaged, it’s important to act quickly to have it repaired or replaced. At Glass Doctor® of Durango we want to ensure that your car window repair service is a positive experience. Protect yourself and your family; allow our specialists to restore your windshield to ensure your safety.

Windshield Care and Repair

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.

The most common types of damage are chips and cracks. Chips are usually caused by road debris and do not extend completely through the windshield. Cracks extend across the interior or exterior of the windshield in a straight or crooked line. In most cases, chips that are less than one inch in diameter and cracks that are three inches or less long, 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!
