At Auto Glass Canada, we always first check to see if your windshield can be repaired, so that you can save time and money. Windscreen chip repair is simple and safe when carried out by our experienced technicians.
Do not ignore chips in the glass- they can crack anytime, and then a replacement will become an urgent necessity. If the chip cracks while you are driving, then you may be in for a bad accident. The windscreen repair prevents further cracks and improves the cosmetic appearance of the windshield. Our technicians are very experienced at rectifying windshield stone chip or windshield rock chip damage.
Sometimes the size and position of the chip will make it impossible to be repaired, and a replacement will be necessary.
If your windshield is cracked or scratched , we can still take a look and tell you if it can be repaired. Our technicians are skilled in the most modern windshield technology, and as long as there is no severe damage we will try to repair it. Repair work preserves the original structure of the windshield fitting, and we advocate repair rather than replacement wherever possible.
In cases of very severe damage, though, usually the glass cannot be repaired, and may need replacement. Call us to get a free evaluation of the damage , today!
At Auto Glass Canada , we are experts at the repair of long cracks on the glass. Windshield crack repairs are our core areas of expertise, and our special methodology enables single line crack repairs up to 10" in length. This repair restores the structural integrity of the windshield as well as improves the visibility in the damaged area. We only repair single line cracks, and not multiple cracks. These cracks typically come from the edge of the glass and show little or no evidence of any other damage, except the crack itself and a small impact point.
Remember that your safety is of paramount importance to us! – so Auto Glass Canada will only undertake crack repair only when it is absolutely safe to do so. The best results for chip and crack repair are obtained when the damage is repaired as soon as it occurs. This will eliminate the possibility of any contamination entering the damaged area.
Typically, our car windshield repairs take about half an hour and are done before you even realize it. Each additional chip may take about fifteen minutes each on the average.
Windshield repair costs are usually covered by the comprehensive portion of your insurance policy. All major insurance companies encourage and have recognized the benefits of windshield repair.
All our crack repairs come with a written guarantee on workmanship.
