Windshield Repair and Replacement
A cracked or chipped windshield isn’t just a nuisance; it’s a safety hazard. If your vehicle’s windshield has been damaged, it’s time to call your local Glass Doctor. From windshield chip and crack repair to full windshield replacement, our local experts will get you back to cruising in no time.
Windshield Replacement or Repair: What’s Best for My Car?
Glass Doctor can repair most chipped windshields and cracks. Typically, cracks longer than three inches indicate an immediate need for windshield replacement to protect the structural integrity of your car and the safety of its occupants.
When deciding if you need to have your windshield repaired or replaced, it’s important to consider these three factors:
- Size: Though there are a few exceptions, chips larger than 3/8 inch and cracks longer than three inches generally require windshield replacement.
- Location: Cracks that have splintered to the edge of the windshield typically require replacement, due to their tendency to spread. Chips or cracks directly in your line of vision require replacement as well, as a repair often does not cure clearly, leaving a slight outline in the repair area.
- Timespan: The longer you leave chips and cracks unaddressed, the more likely dirt will build up, making it difficult to perform a successful repair, and requiring a replacement.
Of course, a member of our team will provide our professional recommendation and reasoning during our consultation.
