A damaged windshield can turn a pleasant drive through East Orlando's landscaped greenery into a frustrating and risky experience. When your vehicle has a cracked or chipped windshield, your view and safety are compromised.  

Your windshield plays an essential role in helping to support your vehicle's structure — so much so that a damaged windshield can lead to failed airbag deployment in the event of an accident.

The professionals at Glass Doctor Auto of East Orlando know the importance of proper windshield repair and replacement. This is why we offer services to help keep you safe on the road.

Windshield Repair for Chips

Did you know that an untreated crack in your windshield can spread rapidly if it's not fixed right away? We offer repair services for windshield chips that are:

  • Located in an area that does not obstruct the driver's view
  • Less than 25mm

We also provide windshield replacement services for chips that are larger than 25mm or located in the driver's direct line of sight.

Windshield Replacement

At times, windshield damage becomes too extensive to repair, and replacement is necessary. If you need a replacement, you'll receive a Windshield Protection Plan at the time of installation.

The Windshield Protection Plan is valid for one year and includes a one-time repair or replacement for your new windshield in the event that additional damage occurs. If we cannot reasonably repair your windshield, we will replace it — replacement excludes the cost of labor, adhesives, and moldings.

Repairing vs. Replacing Your Windshield

The decision to repair or replace a windshield depends on the type of damage your auto glass has incurred. For example, if your windshield is cracked or has an older chip filled with debris, you may need a replacement; some smaller windshield chips may be eligible for repair.

We recognize that figuring out whether to replace or repair your windshield can be daunting. That's why our experts are trained to help you make an educated choice.

FAQ about Windshield Repair and Replacement

Can you fix a cracked windshield without replacing it?

No. Windshield repairs typically apply to auto glass chips less than 25mm in size, while cracks require glass replacement. Cracks compromise your windshield's ability to withstand external forces, increasing its susceptibility to further damage. Replacing your windshield preserves the structural integrity of the glass, maintains optimal visibility, and enhances driving safety.

Windshields serve as an essential layer of defense. However, when compromised, they become a safety risk — a deteriorated windshield can prevent your airbag from deploying, for example.

Windshield damage makes driving a hazardous task. Seeking local windshield replacement services is crucial to protecting yourself and your vehicle's occupants.
