How to Repair a Cracked Windshield

A cracked windshield should always be addressed as soon as possible to avoid spreading. It’s easy to spot a crack on your windshield, and with the right tools, you can be driving safely within an hour.

  1. The first step in repairing your cracked windshield is inspecting the area and cleaning.
  2. Dust and debris is removed from your damaged windshield thoroughly, and could require drilling if your windshield is chipped, nicked, or gouged.
  3. Once a smooth pathway is created, a clear resin is injected, cured, and polished to restore your car glass to a clean, transparent finish.

Improperly sealed chips and cracks may lead to more extensive damage in the long-run, so it’s always best to leave your cracked windshield repair to professionals to ensure a safe restoration. Check out the auto glass specialists at Glass Doctor for quick, affordable service.

Do I Repair or Replace My Cracked Windshield?

Cracked windshields and auto glass cracks can easily be repaired if the crack isn’t too wide and is identified early. Location and timespan are also important factors in determining whether or not your windshield needs to be repaired or replaced:

  • Cracks that extend past three inches and chips larger than 3/8 inch usually call for a replacement of your windshield.
  • If your windshield crack blocks your line of vision in the driver’s seat, you should replace it.
  • Temperature variations may cause the crack to spread, as the glass windshield will expand and contract with different weather conditions.
  • If there is a chip or crack near any edge of the windshield, the adhesive layer between the glass and your vehicle may be at risk and should be properly inspected.
  • Over time, dirt and debris will build up in a crack, making it more difficult to repair. Repair your windshield at your earliest convenience.

If you have comprehensive coverage for your vehicle, your auto glass repair will most likely be taken care of by your insurance company. At Glass Doctor we’ll consult with your auto insurance provider to make sure you’re getting the best deal for your cracked windshield repair cost.

Advantages of Windshield Repair

If auto experts determine your windshield crack can be repaired, you’ll save a lot of money from an expensive replacement.

  • Repairing your cracked windshield is convenient. Typically, Glass Doctor specialists will fix a cracked windshield in under an hour.
  • The price of a cracked auto windshield repair is at least half the cost of replacing an entire windshield.
  • Saving your original windshield will maintain the factory seal between your car frame and the glass windshield, which is ideal for safety since the adhesion is strongest when first applied to the glass and the vehicle.
  • Repairing your windshield protects the environment. Scrapped windshields often end up in overflowing landfills where they take up valuable space.
