Windshield Repair and Replacement
Ignoring windshield damage is tempting, especially if you aren't sure if the damage will weaken your vehicle's safety performance. Of course, you're running the risk of a small ding growing into a major crack and a critical safety hazard. Trust Glass Doctor® of Shreveport to devise an affordable solution to your auto glass needs that restores your safety.
Glass repair is a quick and efficient way to eliminate the hazards of a damaged windshield. A Glass Doctor of Shreveport specialist begins the process by preparing the surface and removing debris from the damaged area. In some cases they drill a clean passageway to create a smoother repair surface. Once the windshield damage is properly prepared, our repair specialist injects a special resin into the damaged area. After injection, the resin is cured to restore windshield strength. A final polishing step gives the repaired glass a clear finish.
When your windshield is severely damaged or there’s a crack in a crucial visibility zone, replacement is the only safe option. Fortunately, the flying pebbles and road debris you encounter every day usually produce only minor dings. These are easily repairable and the process offers a number of benefits:
- Affordability: Repairing a minor chip or crack is far less costly than replacing the whole windshield.
- Insurance Benefits: Because windshield repair is an economical way to help keep you and your passengers safe, many insurance companies will waive your deductible if you choose the repair option.
- Safety: Repairing your windshield helps maintain your vehicle’s original structural integrity and safety.
- Green Technology: The glass repair process leaves your windshield intact and produces minimal debris. When you replace your windshield, the old glass becomes trash that will sit in a landfill forever.
- Convenience: Glass Doctor of Shreveport specialists usually repair your windshield in about an hour.
As the Auto Glass Safety Council™ explains, depending on a vehicle’s make and model, a windshield provides up to 60% of its structural integrity. This is particularly important during a rollover accident where a windshield problem could contribute to serious injuries.
