tri City Car Wash Winshiled RepairWhen you get a chip or a crack in your windshield, you have options to consider in taking care of  your problem. The most common option that people first consider is replacing the windshield completely.  But most people do not have the time to make an appointment and wait for their windshield to be replaced. Even if you make an appointment with a mobile auto glass replacement company, you may still have to wait days for a technician to be available and for your windshield to be in stock.

Are you certain that your windshield needs to be replaced? Full windshield breaks will obviously create the need for replacement. But if your windshield is simply chipped or cracked, then you can benefit from using an auto glass repair organization. If you are watching a small crack slowly turn into a larger one, or if you are constantly being distracted by that small chip in your windshield while you are driving, then you need to get in touch with a professional windshield repair organization that can help you get the service you need and get your windshield back to the way it is supposed to be.

Call us to set up an appointment. Each repair will take  roughly 20-30 minutes.

Crack & Chip Repair

Glass and Chip Repair Tri City CarwashChips and cracks are the two most common types of damage to a windshield although sometimes a combination break develops which has the characteristics of both types of damage. Chips appear when something hits the windshield. The weight, shape and velocity of the object determine the degree of damage; a bullet causes more damage than a piece of gravel. The different shapes of damaged areas have specific names in the industry and your technician will usually refer to them by the “official” name. If you familiarize yourself with these terms, it will help us understand your problem a little better when you call us about windshield chip repair in the Austin area. Insurance companies consider these events to be no-fault occurrences because in most circumstances the driver couldn’t avoid the impact.
