Windshield Repair and Replacement

No matter what your unique situation is, our auto glass specialists can help. Whether it's restoring your glass or repairing it, Glass Doctor takes great pride in making sure that you can be safe on the road again.
If you’re not sure whether your windshield needs to be repaired or replaced, Glass Doctor of Kansas City will help determine what’s best for your vehicle. Our auto glass specialists consider:
- Size of the chip or crack: For the most part, chips larger than 3/8 inch and cracks that are more than three inches long will require a complete windshield replacement. Glass Doctor of Kansas City will carefully consider every possible option in order to make sure that you receive the best solution and the best service.
- Location of the chip or crack:If a crack runs right through your field of vision, or if it's located near the edge of the windshield, then windshield replacement will be necessary. This is to ensure your safety and keep the structural support of your vehicle intact.
- Timespan: Whether or not you'll need to have your windshield repaired or replaced also depends on how long you have had the chip or crack. The longer you have had the damage, the more difficult it is to repair the windshield due to dirt built-up. It’s recommended that you contact Glass Doctor of Kansas City as soon as possible after you notice windshield damage.
Once Glass Doctor has determined that windshield replacement is necessary, our specialists carefully remove the windshield, select a replacement that matches the original equipment manufactured (OEM) quality, and installs it using adhesives that are approved by the Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC).
Our windshield replacement procedure comes with a Windshield Protection Plan - if the new windshield is damaged in any way within the first year, we will repair or replace it for free.
Windshield repair is convenient, inexpensive, and comes with an added insurance benefit: there's a good chance your insurance company will waive your deductible and pay for the repair themselves.
The windshield repair process involves removing debris from the affected area and then injecting a unique resin into the crack or chip. This resin is then cured and polished to create a clear finish that is as strong as the original windshield. Windshield repair is one of Glass Doctor of Kansas City's specialties, so you can count on us to get the job done correctly.
We work with every major auto insurance carrier and we will even file all the paperwork for you. You already have enough on your mind when you bring your car in for windshield repair or replacement - you don't need to worry about insurance too. Glass Doctor of Kansas City will happily take care of it for you.
