Windshield Repair and Replacement
Find out whether your recently damaged windshield needs a simple repair or total replacement. The vehicle safety system of your car depends on the right choice. Glass Doctor® of Bell County employs knowledgeable specialists to serve the residents of Temple, Killeen and Belton. We consider a few factors before deciding between repair and replacement:
Size: Usually, cracks that exceed three inches in length and chips larger than 3/8 inch cannot be repaired. However, our specialists know every case is different and use their expertise to properly assess the damage.
Location: Your safety depends on a clear view, but repairs leave a noticeable outline. For this reason, chips or cracks directly in your line of sight call for replacement. Cracks that spread to the edge of the windshield also demand more than a repair; their likelihood to spread makes replacement the only safe option.
Duration: Ignored chips and cracks welcome weather damage and dirt. These factors make it difficult to successfully repair your windshield.
Contact your local insurance agent to discuss coverage before bringing us your vehicle. Glass Doctor of Bell County will handle the insurance filing so you can focus on stopping windshield damage from threatening your safety.
Advantages of Windshield Repair
Windshield repair remains the preferable choice for manageable chips and cracks. Our specialists advocate it whenever possible for the following reasons:
Speed: Expect our specialists to repair your windshield in an hour.
Price: Save money with a repair before your damage demands a costly replacement.
Coverage: Most insurance companies pay for windshield repair.
Conservation: With a repair, scrap glass won’t end up in a landfill.
Our specialists clean cracks and chips before repairing your windshield. This ensures the repair resin adheres to the damaged area. After its application, we cure and polish the resin to achieve a crystal-clear finish.
