Auto Glass Repalcement
To get your auto glass replaced, call us FIRST, we can take the headache out of filing your insurance claim. Then we'll schedule your replacement at the location of your choice. Typically, we will start replacing a windshield or other auto glass by removing the damaged glass and cleaning the area where the new glass will be installed. We will be sure to remove any bits of glass that are left behind from the break (if there are any) and clean the area thoroughly to ensure no debris will obstruct the new seal. Then the new glass is installed. It's basically as simple as that. After the adhesive that bonds the glass to the frame of the vehicle has had the proper time to cure, you will be back on the road, usually within an hour! Your windshield installation comes with a Lifetime No-Leak Warranty.

How Long Do Windshield Repairs Take?
The average windshield repair can take about 30 minutes.
How Does The Windshield Repair Process Work?
If the damage to your windshield can be repaired, our technician will start by cleaning the damaged area and vacuuming out debris. After the area is cleaned, we will inject a special resin into the chip or crack to "fill" the damaged area. This resin is then subjected to ultraviolet light which causes it to cure, or bond to the rest of your windshield. After the curing process is complete, the excess resin is cleared away from the glass. The windshield's strength has now been restored and the visible damage drastically reduced (sometimes even invisible to the naked eye). Get A Quote
