Windshield Repair and Replacement
We consider several factors when we decide whether to repair or replace your windshield, including the size of the chip and its location. Repairs are always preferred over a replacement because of the convenience and price.
Windshield damage of any kind calls for a visit to Glass Doctor® of San Antonio Even the smallest cracks and chips may jeopardize your visibility and accident safety, and only a certified glass specialist is qualified to assess the damage and determine whether a full replacement is necessary. Our team of talented glass experts provides the following services throughout the San Antonio area.
Your windshield bears up to 60% of the responsibility for maintaining your vehicle's structure in the event of a rollover accident or head-on collision. If cracks or chips compromise your windshield, your vehicle is vulnerable to a variety of threats. Over time, small imperfections also fill with dirt or expand and contract, widening the gap and making repairs more difficult.
Our windshield replacement services are available onsite when ready or by appointment. We provide emergency windshield replacements in the event of extensive overnight damage, and we'll work with your insurance provider to make sure the proper claims are filed.
At Glass Doctor of San Antonio, we replace every broken windshield with a pane that matches the automaker's original glass, including any temperature-sensitive features or tints. Every windshield installation is protected for the next 12 months with our free G12® Road Hazard Guarantee.
