Windshield Repair and Replacement
Windshield damage is one of the most common forms of damage to cars; stones are thrown up from the road chip or crack your windshield, hindering your vision and reducing the structural integrity of your car. If your windshield just has a small chip our specialist will perform an on-site repair. Larger chips and cracks often require a full windshield replacement in-shop.
If you suffer an accident or collision while driving, your windshield is designed to soak up most of the impact damage your car sustains in a crash. If your windshield has already been damaged it will absorb less energy, and it’s more likely you and your passengers will sustain an injury. Glass Doctor® of Kearney, NE is fully equipped to repair most chipped windshields and to perform a windshield replacement when necessary to ensure that you and your family are protected.
Choosing your Service
When looking at a chip or crack there are three main factors that impact whether we perform a windshield repair or must replace the entire windshield: the size of the chip or crack, the location on the windshield and how long it has been there.
Our specialists will access your windshield to determine what your best option is but typically we may have to do a full windshield replacement if one or more of the following is true:
- A chip is larger than 3/8 inch (about the size of the eraser of a pencil).
- A crack is longer than 3 inches (approximately the average length of your index finger).
- The crack is located nearer to the edge of a windshield where it is more likely to spread.
- The chip is in your line of sight when driving since even when repaired this could still impair your ability to see the road.
- The damage was done a long time ago and dirt and debris have built up inside the damaged area, limiting the chances of a successful repair.
