Clean loose glass, dirt away from the repair area. Decide if drilling a hole in the glass is necessary. Damage is vacuumed and pressurized with our injection pump. Once the resin has entered the entire crack the pit area is touched up with a super hard resin and finally taped up.

The resin is cured with UV light from the sun until it has completely hardened. The excess resin and tape is removed with a razor blade. The windshield is cleaned up with glass cleaner and paper towels. Inspect the smoothness of the glass, making sure the wiper blades aren’t going to be harmed in the future.

We have the knowledge and expertise to solve all of your windshield repair problems. We have repaired many windshields and we don’t mind explaining what were doing during the repair process. It’s best to repair rock chips and cracks right away before longer cracks form and become dirty.

The chip or crack has to be completely dry and free of moister in order for the repair process to work properly. If it is raining outside or you just washed your car, you’ll have to wait until the damage is completely dry, usually in a few hours. On rainy days were usually closed, so call before you come if you think its raining. 

Try to keep in mind that a chip under stress will crack. If a small stone hits an area already under stress it will crack out immediately. So be careful not to slam the door to hard or turn the defroster on. If you just received a chip, place some clear scotch tape over the damaged area, that will keep dirt and water out and possibly strengthen the area.
