Your windshield is one of the most important features of your car. Not only does it protect you from wind and weather (and bugs!), it is an important structural component of your vehicle and keeps you and your passenger safe in the event of a collision.
Many things can damage your windshield, from hail and sandstorms to rocks, pebbles, and debris kicked up by other drivers – even a jealous ex. While a small chip or crack may seem like only a minor inconvenience, it is actually very dangerous. A chip or crack will eventually grow with time and ultimately require replacement, which costs more money. But more than this, if you are involved in a car accident, it weakens the safety structure of your vehicle and leaves you vulnerable to more serious injuries. Watch this video to see how important your windshield really is.
In fact, your windshield is so important that most insurance companies will cover a rock chip repair for free. Repairs only take about 30 minutes, but it is important that you schedule a repair as soon as you possibly can. If you wait too long, dirt and debris build up in the chip. If so much builds up that it can’t be cleaned efficiently, the resin used to seal these chips will not be effective and your windshield will be compromised and in need of replacement.
One of our certified AGRSS technicians will examine your crack or chip to see whether or not it can be repaired. If it can be repaired, the tech will use a specialized tool to inject resin into the damaged area, filling the crack or chip completely. The vehicle is then left exposed to UV light, which allows the resin to harden and restore the glass to its factory standard.
For as little as $50 (costs from a reputable shop will depend on the type of chip or scratch you have), you can have your chip or crack repaired, which is far less expensive than replacing the glass in its entirety. Just call your insurance company to see if your deductible will be waived, then tell them that Team Acme Inc. in Henderson will be doing the repair and they will dispatch a free insurance claim to our shop. It doesn’t get any cheaper than free!
We stand behind every chip repair we do. If the chip ever spreads, we will credit your paid invoice to cover the cost of a new windshield.
All rock chips are different and, as such, all completed repairs will differ in visual reduction. Some disappear and some are still visible. This is due to its size and the light as it refracts off the crack from different angles. But as long as the resin is fully injected the repair will last.
Our warranty is not transferable if the vehicle is sold.
