Windshield Repair and Replacement
Whenever a small crack or chip surfaces on your windshield, get it repaired or replaced by our auto glass specialists. To avoid a full windshield replacement, come to Glass Doctor® of Indianapolis as soon as possible.
The longer you leave a damaged windshield, the more difficult it becomes to repair. Cracks more than three inches long and chips bigger than a quarter are too big for repair. They will only grow in size as time goes on, perhaps reaching the edges of your windshield, which always requires a replacement. Plus, if you continue driving your car, debris will build up in the damaged area that may prove impossible to perform a successful repair.
Windshield repair is an effective way to stop cracks and chips from spreading. At Glass Doctor of Indianapolis, we prefer repair to replacement due to its lower environmental impact; windshield repair avoids sending old glass into a landfill where it will never decompose. Windshield repair involves removing dirt from the crack or chip, sometimes with a specialized drill, and then filling the gap with high-quality resin. When the resin has cured, we polish the area to a clear finish that is barely noticeable. Our specialists are able to perform this entire service in under an hour.
We work with all major insurance carriers and are able to file your insurance claim for you. However, we do recommend contacting your local insurance agent in advance to confirm your coverage. Many insurance companies will pay the entire cost of repair service, even waiving the deductible, due to the much lower expense compared to windshield replacement.
Contact us at Glass Doctor of Indianapolis as soon as possible if you know that you need a full replacement service. Even if you don't know, contact us anyway! The slightest damage to your windshield can impact the entire architectural strength of your vehicle.
Our specialists are able to perform the delicate job of a windshield replacement without scratching the paintwork or bonding of your car, which could otherwise lead to leaks and corrosion. We replace your current glass with a windshield that matches the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality glass and seals it with Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC)-approved adhesives. Everything is completed to AGSC standards, including a one-hour drive away time to allow adhesives to seal.
The good news is that if you receive a windshield replacement from Glass Doctor of Indianapolis, you will be eligible for our Windshield Protection Plan, which entitles you to a free repair or replacement if your new glass is damaged due to normal road hazards within the following 12 months.
