The Importance of Repairing Minor Windshield Damage

AllStar Windshield Centers provides windshield repairs for chips and cracks that are smaller than a quarter and not in the direct line of sight for the driver. That is why it is so important to get your windshield repaired as soon as damage appears. We are able to repair these small chips or cracks with our high-grade Clarity® Resin. This clear liquid filler keeps the damage from spreading and solidifies the glass. However, if these cracks or chips spread and become too large, we will have to completely replace the glass.

It is essential to get your windshield repaired right away, even if it has only suffered minor damage. Minor windshield damage will spread over time, resulting in you needing to repair it as soon possible.

AllStar Windshield Centers performs high quality windshield repair and replacement services throughout the greater Chicago, IL area and beyond. Please contact us at 800-900-1505 to schedule an appointment.

Will I be able to see the damage after a windshield repair?

One frequently asked question we receive at AllStar Windshield Centers is if you are able to see any evidence of windshield damage after the repair is complete. Our windshield repair technicians use our Clarity® Windshield Repair Resin for every job. The goal of our repair resin is not only to create strong and long-lasting repairs, but also to provide the clearest view possible. The damage after a repair is virtually impossible to find. Yes, you can technically see the damage, but only if you’re looking for it.

Our goal with windshield repairs is to create a strong seal while also giving the driver the most optimal driving clarity. Our windshield repair resin matches the refractive index of your windshield, meaning that the windshield will be completely clear after the windshield repair. While it will technically be possible to see the place of repair, the result will be virtually indistinguishable from a new windshield.

Other Vehicles Serviced by AllStar Windshield Centers

AllStar Windshield Centers services more than just automobiles. The windshield is an important safety feature for more than just autos. Also, auto glass is important for the security of larger vehicles like mobile homes and buses. We provide windshield repairs and replacements to tractor trailers, buses, and mobile homes.

Mobile homes are often used for long trips. This makes it more likely that they will suffer some auto glass damage over time. Our windshield repair and replacement specialists are trained to repair this type of auto glass so that the mobile home is returned to its original structural integrity.

Tractor trailers use high quality windshields, but they are also on the road more than almost any other vehicle. This makes it almost inevitable that they will suffer windshield damage at some point in their lifespan. We provide auto glass replacements and repairs for tractor trailers, as they wear out significantly over time.

We also provide windshield and auto glass repairs and replacements for buses. Buses take frequent auto glass damage because they are on the road so often and have many sections of glass that can get damaged.

Contact AllStar Windshield Centers today at (800) 900-1505 to find out if we can service your specialty vehicle.

 

Why you Should Repair Minor Windshield Damage

Repairing minor windshield damage is highly recommended by everyone here at AllStar Windshield Centers. It can be dangerous to put off repairing minor windshield damage for several reasons. Minor windshield damage can quickly become a serious problem if it is ignored. The weather, stress from temperature changes, and general wear and tear can increase the severity of the damage to the point where windshield repairs are not possible.

For minor windshield damage, we can do a windshield repair, which is both faster and more affordable than a windshield replacement. If the windshield crack is shorter than the length of a dollar bill, we consider this to fall under the category of minor windshield damage. Also, if it is circular damage, anything smaller than the size of a quarter around is also considered minor windshield damage. Minor windshield damage falling under these scenarios also must not be in the vision of the driver. Any damage directly in front of the driver cannot be repaired; in this scenario a full replacement is necessary.

If a windshield repair is possible, you shouldn’t wait until the damage spreads. Many insurance companies completely cover the cost of windshield repairs, while windshield replacements will often require an additional payment from the individual.

Don’t delay when it comes to windshield damage. Book an appointment today or call us at 800-900-1505.
