Auto Glass Care
A cracked or chipped windshield can decrease your visibility as a driver, causing irritation and an increased risk of accident. If your auto glass has a crack in it, Glass Doctor® of Virginia Beach can help. We provide auto glass repair and replacement services for windshields, side and back windows, sunroofs and even mirrors.
Our specialists follow Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS®) when working on your vehicle, making sure that our glasswork meets and exceeds industry requirements.
Windshield Glass Repair & Replacement
For most drivers, a cracked or chipped windshield is a minor annoyance at worst. However, the front windshield plays a 45% role in the architectural strength of a vehicle during a head-on collision. In the case of a rollover, it plays a 60% role. A compromised glass surface greatly reduces its ability to protect the driver and passengers in case of an accident.
Glass Doctor of Virginia Beach will fix most chips and minor cracks that appear on windshields within an hour. For full windshield replacement, we use the safe installation methods directed by the AGRSS and ensure that the architectural strength and clarity of your windshield is fully restored. We will also make sure that any of the technology on your windshield, including: radio antennas, temperature gauges and humidity or rain sensors, are also in working condition.
Many auto insurance policies cover windshield repairs or replacement, making it a free service for drivers in the Virginia Beach area. Our team will take care of the paperwork required in an auto glass claim, making it a seamless, easy process to get your vehicle back on the road.
Tempered Glass Windows
The passenger windows, quarter glass, back windshield and sunroof of most vehicles are made out of tempered, rather than laminated glass. Laminated glass breaks into shards when it is shattered. Tempered glass, on the other hand, crumbles into rock-like chunks when it is broken. Tempered glass, on the other hand, crumbles into rock-like chunks when it is broken. It is a safety feature to protect passengers from glass injuries.
Unfortunately, because of the way it is made, it is not possible to repair tempered glass. Damaged windows with this type of glass will require full replacement.
