When windshield repair is not an option

Our windshield repair process

What to do

Before your windshield repair is scheduled:

  • Damage area cleared of debris and broken glass

  • Apply injector over the impact area - used to remove air from the break - vacuum cycle

  • Glass specific resin is injected into the break via the impact point - process known as pressure cycle

  • The above vacuum and pressure cycles are repeated until air is removed and resin has penetrated all voids of the break.

  • Cure resin using ultraviolet light - ensures the integrity of the repair

  • Clean, dry breaks make better repairs. Cover the chip A.S.A.P. to avoid contaminants that can hamper the repair. Place a small piece of clear plastic tape (approximately 1/2-inch by1/2-inch in size) over the impact point on the exterior of the windshield. Do not place tape that will block or obstruct your vision while driving. The tape will not prevent the damage from spreading, but will keep dirt from getting into the cracks while you await repair.

  • Repair the damage immediately to keep it from spreading.

  • Repairs cannot be performed outside in inclement weather. Keeping the vehicle inside overnight prior to repairing is optimal.

  • Refrain from using your defroster. The rush of hot or cold air could cause the ding to crack.

  • Don’t wash your vehicle. The water will contaminate the damaged area and could cause the crack to grow.

  • Don’t touch the ding with your finger or any tool. You could cause the damage to spread or even contaminate it.

  • Don’t slam your door shut. The excess pressure combined with the impact could cause the ding to continue to crack. Leave a window slightly open when shutting doors.

  • Don’t dig a surface scratch in the glass over the tip of the crack. This seldom prevents a crack from running and only causes additional surface damage on the windshield that cannot be repaired.

  • Don’t use fingernail polish or super glue to fill the damaged area! The microscopic passages within the break will become clogged and impossible to repair properly.

  • Avoid parking in the hot, direct sun. Leave a window slightly open to reduce temperatures inside the vehicle. Hot windshields are weaker and tend to crack more easily.
