Auto glass repair may not be the correct solution for each and every situation. On that note the following information will help determine if you are eligible for an auto glass repair verses a full windshield replacement. Diamond Auto Glass provides both services. We are more than qualified to determine which is the best method for your vehicle.
If the damage can fit under a dollar bill or a credit card than auto glass repair may be a viable option. If you have three chips or less than auto glass repair may be a viable option. If the damage is not n the edge of the windshield than auto glass repair may be a viable option. If the damage is not in your line of sight than auto glass repair may be a viable option. However if the damage is larger than a dollar bill, there are four chips or more, the damage is on the edge of the windshield, or the damage is in your line of sight than a full windshield replacement will be required.
Vehicle Windshield Repair Process
You may be curious as to how the repair process works. One of our highly qualified repair technicians will clear out any air or fragments from the damaged areas. He or she will then inject a clear resin that fills the space that is caused by the damage. Once the chip or small crack is completely filled in, the clear resin is cured, or hardened from a less technical term. Typically sunlight or ultra violet light is used to cure the clear resin. Once the resin is fully cured the area is polished. The process strengthens the bond and stops the chips or small cracks from breaking any further.
Since the clear resin is inserted between the two layers of the windshield glass the repair procedure can only be performed on layered glass windshields. There is always the slight chance that the auto glass repair will not be completely invisible. In some cases it will appear as a slight smudge as if a bug hit the glass. However your visibility will be significantly increased, and the structural integrity is returned to the windshield. The bottom line is that it will be as safe to drive your vehicle as it was before the chip or small crack occurred.
