Your vehicle's windshield is critical to the safety of you and your passengers. If it becomes cracked, chipped, or damaged, you could be at risk. Small cracks and chips will also grow over time causing what was once a simple repair to become an entire replacement. Drivers in Mount Vernon, Mount Carmel and Benton can count on Glass Doctor® of Mount Vernon, IL to deliver superior windshield care.
Most small areas of damage are repairable in under an hour. If you have a crack that is less than three inches long, or a chip that is smaller than a dime, let Glass Doctor of Mount Vernon, IL get you back on the road quickly and safely. Not only is a windshield repair less expensive than a replacement, it also spares the landfill from another broken windshield. Most insurance companies will cover the cost of a windshield repair. Plus, we will even help you fill out your insurance paperwork to make it even simpler for you.
Glass Doctor of Mount Vernon, IL will always check to see if a repair is possible first. We consider these factors when recommending a replacement:
- Location: Cracks and chips that are on the edge of the glass cannot be repaired. Any damage that is in the driver's line of vision or across any features such as radio antennas also point to a replacement.
- Size: Most cracks must be shorter than three inches to be repairable, and chips must be smaller than 3/8 inch; anything larger than that requires individual inspection, but usually will lead to a replacement.
- Age: Time is of the essence when it comes to damaged windshields. Heat and dirt will cause small areas of damage to expand and turn a quick repair into a complete replacement.
Glass Doctor of Mount Vernon, IL uses only Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) approved adhesives when replacing your windshield. We will choose a windshield that matches the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality and follow strict Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS®) to ensure your glass is replaced perfectly.
The AGSC recommends waiting one hour after your windshield is replaced to give the adhesives time to cure properly. While you wait for your vehicle, we will review our Windshield Protection Plan with you. If your new windshield becomes damaged within 12 months of installation, we will repair or replace the glass for free. Opt to upgrade your protection to cover installation materials and labor.
