Should I Fix my broken windshield?

How to fix my broken windshield?

There are so many DIY projects and information out there that allows us to take care of many things that professionals usually do. Repairing a broken windshield is no different. First we have to ask ourselves is the money and the time we spend worth doing ourselves or hiring someone.

We get quite a few calls asking us to come out and assess the damage done, and most of the time it is beyond repair. We also witness some of peoples attempts at doing things themselves, ultimately rendering an easy crack seal to needing a brand new windshield. If it is insured, your incur only the cost of the deductible. If it isn’t insured you can cost yourself 100’s of dollars.

In this instance just calling us in the first place would’ve been quite a bit better than attempting it yourself. Of course there are successful attempts that we of course wouldn’t document because we are no longer needed.

What’s Wrong with DIY Kits?

The instructions and tools are there, but what you are missing is years of experience in repairing cracks just like this. Also knowing in what situations to use what tool and when repair is beyond hope.

Our professionals:

Know the correct amount of pressure to apply to the windshield to keep it from breaking..

Know the proper procedures for …star breaks, bullseyes, blend breaks, and splits.

Use the perfect blend of glues, with the right bead for the temperature the replacement is done at.

We can finish the job in as little as 10 – 15 minutes. (Where most DIYers say on average it takes them 1 – 2 hours.)

Appropriately filling the pit and making sure the windshield wiper cutting edges don’t get on the excess dried adhesive.

If you have full glass coverage why would you even consider doing it yourself?

We take care of all paperwork and documentation for the insurance company so you have no worries.

If you don’t have insurance or full glass, we can also recommend the best solution at the best possible price including crack repair and used windshields.

Have you Tried DIY and failed?

If you attempted a DIY Windshield Repair Kit and the crack didn’t totally fill, it could spread and make for a dangerous situation and the windshield would need to be totally replaced. If this is the case call us today. Sometimes we can save the repair, or at least keep it from spreading.

We see failed attempts all the time, we don’t judge. The DIY industry makes millions off people trying to save themselves money. Advertising that it is easy is their job. Ours is to fix things for the people that they mislead.

We will always assess the damage and give you the options for the next course of action.
