Why Windshield Repair is Vital
Windshields are constructed from layers of laminated glass. Most people are not aware that the force applied to their windshield while driving creates a pressure strong enough to cause the windshield to shatter if happens to be struck by even a small pebble. When the crucial top layer of your windshield suffers a chip or crack, it compromises the rest of the glass, making it imperative that you have the damage repaired or the entire windshield replaced as soon as possible.
Factors Affecting Windshield Repair
Most chips and some cracks can be repaired, but it depends on their size, shape and depth as well as where the damage is located. If a chip or crack obstructs your line of vision while driving, it’s likely a windshield replacement is in order. Otherwise, repairs can generally be done to chips up to one inch in diameter and cracks three inches or less in length. The only guaranteed way to know if a repair or replacement is needed is to have the windshield inspected by one of our specialists.
If you want to quickly restore the integrity of your windshield, repair can be a great option. Our windshield repair specialists work quickly and make repairs onsite. Before setting an appointment with our team, be sure to check if your insurance carrier provides windshield repair coverage with no deductible. Many carriers cover the cost of windshield repair to encourage drivers to quickly repair small chips and cracks that could otherwise become big problems. We’ll even help you with the paperwork!
Every windshield repair specialists undertake begins with injecting a clear, glass-like resin into the outer layer of the glass. The resin is then cured and polished. This process strengthens the chip or crack and keeps it from spreading further across the windshield. Repairs will still be visible on your windshield, so damage within your sight line usually calls for replacement.
When repair is no longer an option, Glass Doctor of Stafford County will provide fast and courteous replacement. We replace windshields on nearly every vehicle type, and we offer free estimates and high quality parts, making the work quick, easy and affordable!
