Often, we take for granted the convenience of a clear windshield. However, in instances when a chip or scratch occurs, we experience the annoyance of having our vision of the road disrupted. A windshield repair is an inexpensive alternative to having the windshield replaced. The repair will stop cracks and chips from spreading, which leads to the compromised safety of your vehicle and its occupants. Windshield repairs are carried out by removing the debris from the area of impact. This is done by using a drill to make a clear path for the mending resin. The resin is then injected into the damaged channel, using a special tool that attaches to the glass surface. Once the resin is injected, it is cured. This restores the strength of the windshield. It is then polished to provide a bright finish. Why repair instead of replace? Repairs are convenient and quick. Depending on the damage, a windshield repair can take as little as an hour. This allows you to be back on the road to continue with your day. Windshield repair is inexpensive. You do not have to replace the entire windshield. Because windshield repairs are economical, many insurance providers will pay for the repair and waiver the deductible. When you repair your windshield, you are also protecting the environment by preventing dumping of non-biodegradable materials. The size and severity of chips and cracks are the main factors that determine whether repair is possible. A chip that measures the size of a quarter and cracks that measure up to six inches in length are repair candidates. Touch base with Clear Vision Auto Glass today.
