When your car or vehicle takes minor windshield damage, you are fortunate to have the option to get your windshield repaired right away. Minor windshield damage can be defined in several ways. One way that makes the damage “minor” is if it’s in the form of a crack that is shorter than a dollar bill, “the long way”. Another kind of minor damage is circular or star shaped damage that is smaller than the size of a quarter. Another requirement is that the damage is not in the line of vision of the driver, because our safety standards require that we must replace windshields that have any damage directly in front of the driver.
If your damage meets these requirements, and our repair specialist signs off on it, you can get your windshield repaired instead of replaced. However, many drivers do not take advantage of this situation. Many drivers simply put off taking care of their damaged windshield because it is so minor. This catch-22 ends up costing people added money, because in most cases minor windshield damage does not stay that way. Minor cases of windshield damage often spread and become more serious over time. With weather, changes in temperature, and other elements, the glass can get warped and the damage can spread past the line of “minor” into a major case of damage.
Our windshield repair services are fast and affordable. A repair can be done in 20 minutes, versus an hour for a replacement. Many insurance companies will completely cover the cost of a repair, while some replacements require you to also put down a deductible. Also, it is much more safe to get your windshield repaired right away, instead of waiting.
