Some Common Questions
What is windshield repair?
Windshield repair is a process that combines modern technology and skill to fill a damaged area on a windshield with special clear adhesive resin. When this resin is cured the damaged area’s strength is restored as is the clarity.
Why repair my windshield?
Any chips or “bulls-eyes” should be repaired immediately. If not, most windshields will develop cracks and will lead to having the entire windshield being replaced. Some insurance companies will pay the deductible to have your glass repaired. It is basically cheaper for them to absorb a $40 repair bill than to pay a $500 windshield replacement bill. You may want to contact your insurance company to verify that they will pay the deductible.
Repairing a damaged windshield makes sense for several reasons. Repairs save money by preventing the need for costly replacement, and it is very convenient taking only a few minutes. Repairs are also safe, as the glass is never removed so the original factory seal is maintained. With the rising price of modern automotive windshields and high rate of faulty installations, repairing is a very economical and convenient alternative to replacing.
Which damages can be repaired?
At Glenwood Auto Service we repair stone bruises and replace windshields if needed. Best results are obtained when the damage is repaired right away, before it gets contaminated from car washing, road grime or inclement weather. It is also better to get it done before the damage spreads.
What does a repair cost?
A fraction of what you would pay for a replacement! The windshield on a modern car or SUV can cost from $300 to $500 dollars, even more if it has an antenna, defroster, sensor or other technology built into it. The average cost to repair a windshield is less than $40 dollars.
