As you drive around in your car, you might notice that your windshield has sustained some minor chips and pits. This should not come as a surprise, as your windshield often must contend with pebbles and other debris that are kicked up during high speed drives. You could ignore these small defects if you choose, but leaving them as is could compromise the durability of the entire windshield. Over time, with repeated wear and tear chips can grow and form cracks that can weaken the glass.
You should consider having your windshield repaired with the help of Xtreme Auto Glass Pros, LLC. Our capable technicians have the tools, materials, and expertise necessary to restore the noticeable chips, pits, and dents in your windshield. Let us help you prevent cracking and make your windshield road-worthy once more.
Minor windshield damages can be repaired with the use of a vacuum injection device. The device pours a clear resin that fills in the damaged portion, making the part smooth once more while restoring the glass’ clarity. This device can only mend small chips, however, and cannot fill in large cracks—you must settle for a full replacement, if that is the case.
Our repair services are strictly available only to motorists whose windshields meet criteria. Since windshield chips can quickly turn into windshield cracks, if you get a windshield chip, get it repaired as soon as possible. This may help you avoid needing a windshield replacement.
If the damage on your windshield fits certain criteria, you can have it fixed through Xtreme Auto Glass Pros, LLC’s windshield repair services. If you can answer “YES” to all the following criteria, your chip can most likely be repaired. This can save you time and money. Some insurance companies will waive your deductible if your windshield is repairable. Most windshields can be repaired in 30 minutes or less.
The main and most important criteria is that the crack not be on the driver’s side. These are illegal to repair and you will not pass inspection with a repair done in the driver’s line of vision. Not only is this a hazard for you, but a hazard to other motorists on the road. The crack or chip must be less than the size of a quarter. This means the whole crack or chip must fit underneath the quarter. The crack cannot have created a hole all the way through the glass. If so, we cannot repair it, it must be replaced.Chips or dings that occur inside the glass are not repairable, it must be replaced.
