There certainly is a great deal of risks that vehicle operators face on a daily basis. For example, you could be driving down the road minding your own business when a rock falls out of the dump truck that is right in front of you. Perhaps the tire of a nearby car flings a pebble or other road debris directly at your automobile. This is an unavoidable phenomenon. Anyone and everyone that drives a car, truck, van, or SUV will encounter some bad luck at one time or another. If the rock or road debris in question happens to hit your windshield than it will most likely cause a bit of damage to the glass.
In a best case scenario the damage is limited to a small chip or crack. You may not actually notice that your windshield is damaged unless you look carefully, however you will know that it exists in an instant due to the loud, crunching or popping sound that is made on impact. A great deal of people tend to ignore small chips and
cracks unless they are in spots that obstruct their view. Although the damage may seem minor it is incredibly important to have the windshield repaired as soon as you can. The weather and even your windshield wipers can imbed dirt into the chip or crack.
If this occurs than the repair will be considerably less effective. In many cases a repair will become impossible to attempt. When the repair job is eventually performed the results may not be as good as it would have been if the situation was dealt with earlier. For example, the repair may look cloudy, or smudged as if a bug hit that area of the windshield. For the best results the repair should be made within a day or two of the damage occurring. That way your windshield has a far better chance of looking clear and smooth, as if the damage never happened.
If you leave the damage untreated for an extended period of time a small chip or crack will eventually grow larger. In essence it will turn into a large crack, or even a series of spider web cracks. At that point you will need to have the entire windshield replaced. Windshield repair in Winslow, Arizona is typically a quick and extremely effective procedure when performed by a professional windshield repair technician. Our first step is to inspect your windshield. That way we can determine if it is a good candidate for repair, or if it would make more sense to replace it.
The inspection evaluates the type and size of the chip or small crack, and the severity of the debris that may be embedded into the area that is damaged. Our next step is to clean the damaged area in order to avoid sealing in any debris, dirt, or moisture when the repair is made. Last but certainly not least we will seal the chip or small crack with a specially formulated resin that dries clear and is matched to the tint of your windshield glass. The resin is hardened with an ultraviolet light. Once the resin fully dries it should blend in with your original windshield glass.
