Was that repairable? Not all rock chips and long cracks are repairable in your front windshield. Sometimes it's better to either leave them alone or replace the windshield if it interferes with the driver's field of vision.


REPAIR 1st

Quality: Our mission repair first and replace last.

VISION:

We do not guarantee or say we can repair your windshield in 15 minutes as a Quality repair takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. A drill hole would increase the speed of the repair, but the outcome may not look appealing.

Although, sometimes we must drill due to the type, impact, legs that won't fill in, and location on the windshield. We drill only when necessary on rock chip repairs and always on a long crack repair.

Rock Chip Questions & Answers

Click your question below:
A rock chip is usually round or star shaped and may have lines radiating from the center. It has a black or silver color to it. Hint: If your rock chip looks like a white speck in the glass and has no dark areas, then this should not be repaired. It is only a nick.
Normally a rock chip appears after a rock or other flying road debris hits your windshield.
In almost all cases you should have it repaired unless the rock chip is in the driver’s line of sight, is over one year old or it has already been repaired. After the rock chip appears, do not put anything on the windshield except water or window cleaner. You may be tempted to apply cleansers, rain repellents, soap, baby oil, foreign chemicals, glue, garlic juice, vinegar and finger nail polish, but these products will only make it more difficult to repair.
We can repair rock chips from the size of a Pea up to the size of a Quarter and in some cases up to the size of a Silver Dollar. As long as the glass missing from the center of the rock chip is less than the end of pencil eraser, we can do the rock chip repair.
Your rock chip should become noticeably clearer when repaired. However, clarity is dependent upon the size, age, amount of glass missing from the center and the quantity of fragmented glass within the break. Note: chemicals applied to the rock chip may prevent the windshield repair resin from adhering to the glass.
The possibility of your rock chip forming into a crack is greater now if not repaired. But if you repair the rock chip before it turns into a crack it will not spread under normal conditions. A rock chip could form a crack if there is a drastic change in temperature (ex. washing you car on a very hot day with cold water) or if internal or external stress occurs to the windshield.
In the months of May thru September the sun UV Rays are at it strongest here in Houston, TX. If your windshield has gotten wet please, allow your vehicle to set in direct sunlight for 3 hours prior to repair. The rest of the year may take several days to a week depending on the weather. Please note there is always a chance your chip can spread into a crack while drying in the sunlight. However, if there is any water in the break that’s not visible by the technician then the repair may appear more visible. In most cases the rock chip damaged area will turn milky white forever when water is in the break.
Typically it takes about 30 minutes but could take an hour depending on the individual rock chip being repaired.
If it is smaller than a Dime 10¢, it would cost $49.95 and Nickle 5¢ to Quarter 25¢ Size $54.95 anything larger that is repairable would should cost $59.95 For additional chips price may vary. See store for pricing. *For long crack repair see FAQ Cracks.
Should a crack spread further than the original end points, a refund shall be given upon inspection. This windshield is guaranteed against defective material or workmanship as long as the present owner continues to own this vehicle.

Common crack questions with answers

Click your question below:
A crack in the windshield looks like a black or silver thin line in your windshield.
Most repairable cracks form when a rock hits within an inch or two from the edge of the glass. When the windshield is Hot, and Coldwater or cold air from your air conditioner comes in contact with the windshield, it may cause thermal expansion, causing the rock chip to turn into a crack. The opposite is true. When the windshield is Cold (ex. ice on the windscreen), and Hot water or Hot air from your Heater/Defroster comes in contact with the windshield, a crack may form.

You should have your crack repaired if you would like to retain your windshield's integrity. Having your windshield repaired is your preference. It could save you hundreds of dollars over replacement. Your crack will most likely continue to grow if left alone. A rule of thumb: if you expect your cracked windshield to disappear entirely or your damage is within the driver's field of vision, we recommend replacement as soon as possible.

If your main concern is to keep it from spreading and you would like to improve the visibility, you should have it repaired. The best time to have your crack repaired is with the first two weeks after it forms. The best repairs are new, never washed with soap or wiper fluid.

The longest crack we can repair depends upon the size of your windshield. We stop at 12 inches on most windshields. The impact point needs to be the size of a dime with minimal lines coming out of the chip.
When standing at the front of the hood, your crack should become less noticeable, looking at the windshield. However, clarity depends on the size, age, amount of glass missing, and the quantity of fragmented glass within the break. Note: chemicals applied to the crack may prevent the windshield repair resin from adhering to the glass. In most conditions, the damage is unnoticeable, or you may see a hairline above and below the area.
There is a small possibility your crack may continue to grow or may reopen after the repair. Your chances will increase if an extreme change in temperature or stress applied to the glass. Should this happen, we still guarantee the work and will stop the crack from spreading further. *Please see the warranty question below.
In May through September, the sun UV Rays are at its strongest here in Houston, TX. If your windshield has gotten wet please, allow your vehicle to set in direct sunlight for 3 hours before repair. The rest of the year may take several days to a week, depending on the weather. Please note there is always a chance your crack can spread into a further while drying in the sunlight. However, if there is any water in the break that’s not visible by the technician, then the repair may appear more visible.
Typically it takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the individual crack repair.
Under 6 inches, then the cost is $59.95. Anything over 6" and less than 12" for 64.95. Most insurance companies will waive your deductible if the crack is under six inches, which is the length of a one-dollar bill, not in the drivers' direct field of vision, and with full insurance coverage.
WARRANTY FOR LONG CRACKS Should the crack spread past the endpoint, we offer a full refund for the first 30 days or attempt to stop the damage again. The remainder of 11 months, we'll issue either a 50% refund should the crack spread past the endpoint, or we'll attempt to stop the damage again at the customers' discretion.
