What is Windshield Repair?
Windshield repair is a term used to describe a process that involves the injection, curing and polishing of specially formulated resins into a damaged area of the windshield. The process stops damage from spreading, restores structural integrity, and improves clarity. Only laminated glass can be repaired. While the vast majority of repairs are successful, it is possible that the windshield may crack further during the process.
Why Windshield Repair?
Windshield repair is a less costly but effective alternative to windshield replacement that extends the useful life of and restores beauty to many damaged windshields. And a repaired windshield is “green” because it doesn’t end up in a landfill!
