When it comes to auto glass replacement, the process can seem daunting. But with the right guidance, you can easily understand the steps involved and get your car back on the road in no time. The first step in the windshield repair process is for the technician to prepare the area around the damage for the actual repair. This includes covering the hood of the car and cleaning the glass.
The windshield cleaning process involves sucking air out of the broken windshield to ensure a successful repair. To repair a small crack, a mechanic will fill the chipped area with a material that mimics glass. This material is known as resin. It is poured onto the small chip and then allowed to dry.
The final look won't be noticeable at all, and you won't notice that the windshield has ever had a crack. We will exchange your windshield for second-hand glass or you can request an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) glass. The general rule for windshield repair is that if a crack is less than a quarter and less than three inches long, the glass can be repaired rather than replaced.
