Windshield Repair and Replacement
Cracks longer than three inches can compromise your safety and the structural durability of your vehicle. When windshield damage has occurred, you need immediate windshield repair or replacement. Your safest option is Glass Doctor®of Beaufort County, located in Hilton Head. We will repair your cracked windshield using the industry’s best practices.
When we examine your windshield damage, the size and location of the damage are the first indicators that replacement rather than repair might be necessary. When your windshield chip is smaller than a quarter and not in the driver’s line of sight, most companies will waive the deductible for windshield repair.
You should contact your insurance agent to verify your coverage as soon as the damage occurs. In South Carolina, if you carry comprehensive auto insurance, you qualify for free windshield repair or replacement. The auto insurance companies are more than willing to ensure your safety with free windshield repair or replacement, and your Hilton Head glass specialists at Glass Doctor of Beaufort County will handle the paperwork.
In Hilton Head, our fair prices take away the stress about windshield repair expenses, so it’s all about your safety. Your car’s windshield is part of the vehicle’s structural support, reinforcing the car cabin, which ultimately protects you and your passengers during an accident. During a front-end collision, your windshield gives you 45% of the car’s total protection.
When you delay windshield repair, dirt build-up will accumulate, making repair difficult and replacement your only option. Glass Doctor of Beaufort County recommends repair over replacement because:
- Repairs are faster than replacements; most can be completed within an hour.
- Repairs are the economical, eco-friendly choice.
- Insurance companies appreciate an effort to keep their costs lower.
Our glass specialists will carefully clear debris from the area to prevent damage to exterior paint or interior dash. After creating a clean passage on the windshield, a reparative resin is inserted. After the resin is cured, the windshield glass is polished to a clear, seamless finish.
If windshield replacement is necessary, there’s no need to delay. Our team will coordinate the damage assessment and schedule your vehicle’s windshield replacement to accommodate your timeframe.
Our experienced team works quickly, and we follow a proven process for windshield replacement. Your replacement windshield will be a perfect match to your original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) installation. The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) must approve every windshield and all adhesives we use.
To reduce risk of damage to the exterior paint or interior dash, your windshield is carefully removed. After we replace your windshield, there is a one-hour drive-away time so the adhesive will properly set. Glass Doctor of Beaufort County offers a G12® Road Hazard Guarantee, which guarantees if your new windshield is damaged within 12 months after replacement, we will repair it for free.
There’s simply no good reason to jeopardize your safety by driving with a cracked or chipped windshield. Call Glass Doctor of Beaufort County today at 843-548-0037 to schedule your appointment, or contact our glass professionals with questions about your service options.
