Northern Arizona Auto Glass Repair
If your windshield was chipped by a rock, pebble, flying road debris, a stray baseball, or some other damaging event than it requires immediate attention. However, that does not necessary mean that the entire windshield needs to be replaced. This is certainly is good news for your bank account due to a few factors. Most auto insurance policies cover auto glass repair and replacement, however the insurance companies would much rather pay for a less costly repair instead of the more expensive windshield replacement.
That being said if the damage is minimal and can be repaired your insurance company would most likely waive the deductible. On the other hand if they are required to pay for a windshield replacement they will typically charge you a deductible. That means you will end up paying a portion of the replacement cost out of pocket. That is exactly why it is so important to work with a professional auto glass specialist, like Diamond Auto Glass, that provides both repair and replacement services.
In that situation you will be given honest and trustworthy advice on the best way to proceed. For example, if the chip is small enough length wise to fit under a credit card, and or the circumference is smaller than a United Stated Quarter than it may be a good candidate for repair. There are some other mitigating factors that determine the eligibility of a repair. The chip must be located outside of the driver’s line of sight in order to avoid impeding the view out of the windshield, as well as distracting the driver.
Vehicle Windshield Repairs and Replacements
Our philosophy is whatever is easier for you works for us. The process is the same. One of our highly experienced and well-trained technicians will begin by determining if a repair will be adequate or you need a full windshield replacement. If a repair is acceptable than they will thoroughly clean the area of the windshield where the damage occurred. A clear resin is then injected into the chip. Ultra violet lights are used to dry the resin. Once it fully hardens the resin should blend in with the windshield and be hardly noticeable to the human eye.
