FAQ

Repair or Replace?

In general,

most chips and cracks can be repaired, but it always depends upon four factors: the size, type, depth, and location of the damage. Results will vary based on age, amount of contamination, location & severity of the damage.

A qualified auto glass repair technician must evaluate a number of factors before deciding whether your windshield is repairable. Each case is assessed on an individual basis, and a determination is made based on the technician’s evaluation & Size and Depth.

 

Damages that usually cannot be repaired:

  .on inside of the windshield deep damage on both layers of glass

  .damage over rain sensor

  . driver’s critical viewing area complex multiple cracks very long cracks

   (i.e. over12 inches long) 

Provided the chip can be repaired, then yes it is safe. After your windscreen is repaired, it will be restored to full structural strength and you will be able to drive the car immediately. Only a faint mark at the point of impact will be left.

 

We'll assess the chip and recommend the best course of action. A repair is best in situations where:

  • The damage is recent

  • The point of impact is small

  • The cracks around the damaged area are minimal

  • The damage is not in the driver's direct line of vision

Some chips can never be repaired properly due to the way the glass has been fractured. We'll offer you the most affordable solution without ever compromising your safety.
