How do I know if the damage to my windshield can be repaired?

If your windshield damage is smaller than the size of a dollar bill, it may qualify for repair.


How long does it take to get my windshield repaired?

It’s fast – 30 minutes or less. There’s no waiting for an adhesive to cure. Once your repair is completed, your car is ready to drive.


Is a windshield repair safe/How does it work?

Windshield repair is safe and effective. The chip or crack will be filled with a special resin that is used to bond the damage. This helps prevent the damage from spreading. This process will also make the damage less noticeable.


Can you guarantee that the chip or crack will be invisible after the repair has been completed?

No. A windshield chip or crack repair is used to prevent further damage to your glass and to restore the structural integrity of the vehicle. While each incident of damage is unique, with most successful repairs, a slight blemish or imperfection where the impact occurred is normal. In most cases, you should expect the cosmetic appearance of the repair to show some improvement as compared to the damage prior to the repair.


How long will my repair or replacement take?

In many cases, windshield repairs can be performed in 30 minutes or less. Windshield replacements will often take 60 minutes or less, however, we recommend that you do not drive the vehicle for at least one hour after service is completed.
