Windshield Repair and Replacement
In a rollover accident, your windshield provides up to 60% of the structural support of your car. However, if your windshield is already damaged, its architectural strength is compromised, putting you and any occupants at a higher risk of serious injuries. For this reason, if your windshield suffers a crack or chip, take advantage of Glass Doctor® of Wichita’s windshield repair and replacement services.
Glass Doctor of Wichita provides customers with exceptional workmanship and uses the highest quality materials on their vehicles. Our auto glass specialists are professionally trained and use the industry’s best practices to ensure successful windshield repair or replacement. Call us today or schedule an appointment online.
Windshield repair involves removing debris from the crack or chip, sometimes with the use of a drill, and filling the damaged are with a special resin. Our specialists at Glass Doctor of Wichita will then cure and polish the resin to create a clear finish. Repairing a windshield usually takes less than an hour and can be performed at a location that is most convenient for you.
Windshield repair, an effective way to cease the spreading of cracks, is usually the preferable option for the following benefits:
- It is less expensive than windshield replacement.
- Due to its lower cost, many insurance companies are willing to pay for the entire service, waiving your deductible.
- It is the environmentally friendly option, minimizing your contribution to landfills.
Windshield replacement is a more extensive procedure, although you will be able to drive your vehicle just one hour after the work is complete. The process involves carefully removing the old windshield and replacing it with new glass that meets the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality standards. At Glass Doctor of Wichita, we only use Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) approved adhesives and follow all standards set by Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards® (AGRSS).
If your new windshield suffers from any damage within 12 months after replacement, we will repair or replace the glass free of charge with our G12® Windshield Breakage Guarantee. This one-time only warranty does not include the cost of labor, materials, molding or clips. Glass Doctor of Wichita also offers the G12 Full Service Plan for an additional fee that includes labor, materials, molding, clips, wiper blades and the application of Clear Choice™ protectant. For more information on our 12-month warranty, visit our G12® Windshield Guarantee page.
Which Is Right for You?
Glass Doctor of Wichita considers a few factors to determine if windshield repair or replacement is the best solution for your vehicle. If the damage is smaller than a quarter and measures less than three inches, our auto glass specialists will be able to perform a successful repair. However, a windshield replacement is necessary if the damage is in the driver’s line of vision or if the crack is located at the edge of the glass.
Safety should be your utmost concern when driving. Eliminate potential risks and repair the damage to your windshield. Glass Doctor of Wichita specializes in windshield repair and replacement. Call Glass Doctor of Wichita today!
