In cases of minor breakage, a windshield repair – instead of a full replacement – can often restore the integrity of the glass and prevent it from spreading, and improve optical clarity. Once a repair is complete, there will be some residual scarring where the glass was filled with the bonding agent but for the most part the repair will be 80% less visible depending on the type of break. Windshield repairs are less expensive and take less time than full windshield replacements. They are covered by most insurance companies, most of which will waive the deductible if the windshield can simply be repaired instead of replaced.
Safety will never be compromised for cost and convenience, so if there is any question whether a windshield should be repaired or replaced, Affordable Auto Glass will insist on a new windshield and work with your insurance Company to make sure that it is replaced with out additional cost.
