Auto Glass Care
Discovering a chip or crack in your vehicle's windshield can be extremely frustrating. Many drivers choose to simply live with the visible blemish and keep driving until the dent grows and becomes too big to ignore. However, the windshield of a vehicle is designed as an integral part of the structural system, providing protection and safety for the occupants. In a front-end collision, the windshield plays a major role in the overall structural integrity of your vehicle. In a rollover accident, its role is increased to about 60%.
Fortunately, it is a very simple process to have the chip or crack in your windshield repaired by Glass Doctor® of Island County in Oak Harbor.
Auto Glass Repair
Windshields are manufactured with laminated glass, which will crack or break into shards when it is damaged. If the damage is minor, applying a special resin can repair it.
Our specialists at Glass Doctor of Island County are able to repair most chips or cracks in a windshield. Our process is quick, easy, and thorough - with the entire repair completed in an hour.
Auto insurance policies offer glass coverage, which typically does not include any deductible and can be used to cover the cost of a windshield repair or replacement, making our services free for you. We work frequently with insurance companies, and we will be able to take care of the paperwork required by your insurance claims department.
Auto Glass Replacement
Glass Doctor of Island County will always repair, rather than replace, any damaged auto glass, but there are some situations where repair is not an option. One situation is when the laminated glass of your front windshield has sustained too much damage to be safely repaired. Another situation is if any tempered glass has been broken.
For the safety of all passengers, tempered glass is designed to break into small, rock-like chunks when it is damaged. This safety feature has saved many lives. Tempered glass, however, cannot be repaired when it is broken and must be replaced entirely.
Extended Protection Guarantee
Every time we replace a windshield at Glass Doctor of Island County, we automatically include our G12® Windshield Road Hazard Guarantee. If the new windshield breaks within 12 months of our installation, we will provide a replacement windshield for free. Exclusions apply.
For additional protection, we also offer an extended G12 Value Package. This extended protection plan will attach itself to the basic Guarantee, and will provide the additional services of: labor costs, windshield wipers and Clear Choice™ protective glass treatment.
