Did you know that an small rock chip* on your windshield can easily turn into a long crack that could require complete windshield replacement? In many cases if the chip is not repaired right away,  temperature variations, such as turning on your defroster on a cold morning or getting your car washed on a hot afternoon, road vibration, and even weather conditions  could go to work on it to create a crack that spreads across the windshield.

* What exactly is a chip? a chip usually occurs when a rock hits your windshield. It  can range from the size of a pencil eraser, to dime or quarter size and larger in some cases.  However, to be noted,  anything the size of a grain of rice or smaller are usually “surface nicks” and usually do not require repair.   If you ever have a question as to what type of damage you have  feel free to stop by and we will give you an honest assessment of your damage. We are not in this business to charge you nor insurance for anything that does not need to be repaired.

*What are cracks? Cracks are when the chip “runs” and can be single (sometimes double)  lines ranging anywhere from 1 inch to 24 inches. We repair these also, yet the damage needs to be “fresh” for ideal repairs. (meaning quickly after it has happened).  any damage that has sat on your windshield for months will not render as a “clean” repair as if you had brought it in right away. However we can still repair the older cracks they just won’t look as good as a fresh one.

A few tips and info about windshield repair… The purpose of a repair is to prevent damage from spreading, many repairs become much less noticeable, and some may almost disappear, yet others, due to the severity of the damage will not.  In all cases you will see an improvement.  The guarantee is to prevent your damage from spreading.

get it repaired fast…

If you can not make it in right away place a small piece of scotch tape over the damage to keep it clean and moisture free.

A chip or a crack repair turns out best when repaired right away, while the glass is clean and dry. try to bring it in within a few days for best results. Damage that has sat on a windshield for months can still be repaired, yet it may inherit dirt and other chemicals (such as rain-x) in it over time. not good.

Avoid rapid temperature changes like the defrosting you windshield, or washing your auto with cold water in the afternoon of a hot day before you get it repaired, rapid temperature change cracks windshields.

•Windshield glass repair is the environmentally-friendly choice. Because auto glass can’t be recycled, millions are piling up in our landfills.  Windshield chip repair instead of auto glass replacement is one more way to go green!

•We carry a lifetime repair guarantee on all chip repairs. We  guarantee your auto glass repair will not crack or spread for as long as own the vehicle or w e will refund the original price of the windshield chip repair.
