Windshield Repair and Replacement
Your car is a major investment, and caring for it is important. Any unexpected scratch or crack in the windshield is cause for alarm and a threat to maintaining the value of your vehicle. A damaged windshield also puts you at risk during a collision. Glass Doctor® of Sarnia / Lambton County is your local auto glass repair professional. We quickly repair minor cracks and replace more serious damage.
Your laminated glass windshield supports the structural system of your car. Any damage to it weakens the role it plays as a structural element. It is important to get the damaged windshield repaired or replaced quickly because exposure to the elements will make the damage worsen. Exposure to daytime heat and the cooler air at night will cause the glass to expand and contract. When it does, the crack in your windshield will grow larger.
Factors to consider:
- The size of the chip
- The location of the damage
- The amount of time since the damage happened
A Glass Doctor of Sarnia / Lambton County specialist will carefully examine your windshield and determine if repair is the best course of action. There are several factors that we carefully consider when working on your vehicle. The major considerations are the size of the chip, its location and how much time has passed since the damage happened. It is important to act quickly so that dirt and road grime do not build up making it more difficult to repair the glass. Often, we have to replace windshields that could have been quickly repaired because the damage wasn’t addressed in a timely fashion.
Any damage that is in the driver’s line of sight or near the edge of the windshield typically requires replacement of the windshield. Our auto glass specialists go through a careful process to replace your windshield with an exact match. We pay special attention while carefully removing the damaged windshield and installing your new one using Auto Glass Safety Council™ approved procedures.
During a windshield replacement it is important not to damage the bonding surfaces, which is why professional installation is key. Even slight damage to the surface could cause water leaks. We only use council-approved adhesives and windshields that match the manufacturer's original equipment.
