Your Safety Comes FIRST

Your windshield does much more than keep out wind and rain.

Did you know that the windshield in a vehicle is actually a federally recognized safety device? Your windshield protects passengers from flying road debris, provides stability for the deployment of the passenger side air bag, and provides structural integrity to protect occupants in the event of a rollover accident.

Windshield Safety

Your windshield is composed of several layers of glass that has been laminated together. These layers of glass allow the windshield to absorb impacts without shattering and give the glass the strength needed to protect you during an accident. When your windshield is impacted by a stone or other debris, the outer layers of laminated glass must be repaired to restore the windshield's' strength and structural integrity. If left untreated, the damage will spread and will eventually be irreparable. Any impact that penetrates all the layers of laminated glass cannot safely be repaired.

Cleanliness is the key to a safe windshield repair. If glass, dirt and other debris are left in the damaged area, the windshield repair resin will not bond securely to the laminated glass layers leaving gaps, bubbles, and imperfections in the bond. This type of improper repair will not effectively stop the spread of damage and will most likely result in a larger chip or crack over time.

Common Repair Questions

Can My Windshield Be Repaired?

The longer you wait, the more time the damage has to spread; and it will. Small changes in temperature, additional impacts from road debris and small bumps in the road will eventually cause that small chip to spread. If left untreated for too long, you may have to replace the entire windshield.

If your windshield has multiple impacts (5 or more deep chips), the glass usually cannot be repaired safely as the damage is to extensive. Other situations that leave a windshield irreparable include:

  • Cracks over 6" long
  • Chips that pennetrate the glass, leaving a hole
  • An area on the windshield that has already been repaired

How Do Windshield Repairs Work?

When your windshield is damaged, the impact causing a chip or crack actually removes glass from the windshield. This loss of material is what you perceive as the chip or crack. The windshield repair process is NOT designed to eliminate the damage. The process makes the damaged area invisible to the naked eye but, more importantly, prevents the damage from spreading. It is this preventative measure that makes windsahield repairs a time-tested, reliable way to extend the life of your windshield.

In addition to preventing additional cracking, the repair also restores clarity, reduces added glare, and, let's face it, just looks better! Want to know how the repair process works?
