Repairs and Replacement
Depending on the degree of damage to your windshield, a simple repair may be an option over full replacement. Our professionals always look to repairs as the first and foremost options in a windshield repair situation, because repairs take less time, are more cost effective and are much simpler. In most cases, repairs can be covered through your insurance, saving you money and frustration.
Repair is often easily managed, provided the damage meets certain requirements:
- Does not exceed 3/8’’ in length.
- Chip or crack is not spreading, encroaching on the edges of your windshield
- The damage is not too old, and does not harbor excessive debris that would make successful repair impossible
Cracks that appear along the edges of your windshield may make repair an improbable option if they have spread, or could potentially lead to spreading. If a chip is particularly old, it can complicate or make repair unavailable due to a buildup of debris and dirt in the chip. We encourage you to address a crack or chip immediately.
If the safety or structural integrity of your vehicle is in question, our professionals will always choose replacement. Traveling with weak, chipped, cracked or structurally unsound window glass in your vehicle is extremely unsafe, and presents a multitude of dangers. Your windshield accounts for more than half of the structural integrity of your vehicle, meaning that in the event of a collision, a faulty or weak windshield could dramatically increase your risk of injury, and may have an effect on the overall damage to your vehicle.
