What is a Windshield Repair?
Windshield repair is a modern process that utilizes resin technology to repair, rather than replace a damaged windshield. Repairing a damaged windshield saves money by preventing the need for costly replacement. Road debris often strikes a windshield causing damage. This damage can range from small chips to large shattered areas. Most of the smaller damages can be repaired without removing or replacing the windshield, thus stopping the cracking process.
Why Repair a Windshield?
If a rock chips your windshield and the damage is smaller than an inch in diameter and not in the driver’s line of vision, we can typically repair it to prevent the crack from spreading. If you catch it early, a repair could be all you need and repair is a fraction of the cost of replacement. A chipped windshield could be dangerous and almost all chips will spread eventually.
When you call Window Welder, we will dispatch a certified technician to remedy the issue quickly and professionally. We can dispatch a technician to your location of choice or have you come into our service location and have you back on the road in no time.

What Kind of Damage can be Repaired?
The size should be smaller than a quarter. Best results are obtained if the repair is done before the damaged area is contaminated. The longer it sits there, the more air/water/debris can fill in the hole. If the damage area is contaminated, the chip can still be repaired, but the overall appearance of the repair may be affected.
How is a Damaged Windshield Repaired?
Basically, the process consists of injecting a resin into the damaged area. When the resin fills the damaged area, it is covered with a sealer and exposed to an ultraviolet light which cures the resin. This process bonds all of the tiny cracks together and prevents the cracks from spreading.
How will the Windshield Look after Repair?
After a repair is completed, the appearance of the broken area improves, but it does not always disappear from sight. There is always slight damage where the chip was filled. When looking through the glass, vision should not be impaired. If vision is impaired, the windshield should be replaced. The whole gain from this is to glue the windshield crack back together and bring back integrity to the glass. The main objective of repairing a chip is to extend the life of the windshield. Repairing a chip is about 95% effective in preventing a chip from turning into a major crack that would require replacement.
