We are careful to attend to every detail so that any chip or crack is repaired permanently.
In front of the driver is a section of the windshield called “critical vision area”. If there is a chip within that critical vision area, a repair will not resolve the issue. In that case a full replacement is necessary.
Very often cracks are the result of unrepaired chips that have morphed into a greater problem because of the air pressure that is felt when the car is driven. As damage progresses, the glass becomes weaker and with the high air pressure against it, the glass can shatter. Obviously this is a danger to both the driver and any passengers.
Scratches are sometimes erroneously thought to be cracks. Scratches are on the surface and do not penetrate the glass. Both scratches and small cracks are sometimes thought to be merely cosmetic. That is not necessarily so. With a resin injection and proper curing, these problems can be corrected before they become dangerous.
You may be tempted to purchase a kit and attempt the repairs yourself. It is always better to leave this type of skilled repairs to the experts. They can assess the extent of the damage and suggest and complete the repairs professionally. For more information take a look at our stone chip repair guide.
