Windshield Repair by Farmland Auto Glass

What you need to know about Windshield Repair:

  • Most windshield damage occurs when outside objects impact the glass, causing the crack or chip
  • The majority of windshields that get replaced started out with just a small, repairable rock chip
  • These chips when stressed (usually through a large temperature difference between the inside and outside of the windshield) can crack across your entire windshield
  • Windshield chips can be repaired for a fraction of the cost of a new windshield
  • The process of repairing a windshield is simple. The crack or chip is filled with a resin that hardens and restores the glass' original strength as well as limiting the spread of the damage

Factors that determine if a rock chip can be repaired

  • The overall size of the damage
  • The amount of glass missing from the surface at the impact point of the chip
  • The location of the chip in the windshield (the damage is still present after the repair process; an imperfection in the glass can impair the drivers view if in the direct line of sight
  • You!  Most people just want to prevent replacing the windshield while others want as little noticeable damage to the vehicle as possible

How visible will the repair be when completed?

  • Considerably less depending on the size of the damage before the repair.
  • The larger the area of damage (larger than a nickel), the more noticeable the repair will be.
  • The smaller the damage (smaller than a dime), the less noticeable the repair will be
