Should you repair your windshield OR replace it?
The cost of a repairing your windshield is only a fraction of what replacing it would be. Most insurance companies will cover this charge (without requiring a deductible) because it is a lot cheaper to pay for a repair now then a replacement windshield down the road. A big bonus to repairing your windshield is saving a windshield is environmentally friendly since windshields are not recyclable.
WHAT CREATES THE NEED FOR WINDSHIELD REPAIR?
Road debris often strikes a windshield and creates damage in the glass. Unless the cracking process is stopped, it will continue until the cracks or breaks expand to cover large areas of the windshield.
These damages range from small nicks to large shattered areas. Most of the smaller damages can be repaired without removing or replacing the windshield, and thus stopping the cracking process.
Yes indeed, Vivid Detailz will improve the cosmetic appearance of the damaged area to between 80 and 98 present, which it will look like it was never there… For more information and tips on how to protect your windshield, and for a free, no obligation estimate on repairing your windshield, please call Vivid Detailz at 530-604-7380.
HOW DOES THE WINDSHIELD GET REPAIRED?
First call Vivid Detailz at 530-604-7380.
The windshield repair is accomplished by injecting a clear adhesive bonding agent into the damaged area. The bonding agent fills the damaged area of the windshield and prevents it from further cracking, breaking or spreading.
HOW WILL MY WINDSHIELD LOOK AFTER THE REPAIR?
The most important purpose of windshield repair is to restore the strength and integrity to the glass. Next is to stop the cracking and breaking process before the cracks or breaks cover too much of the windshield. Once the windshield is repaired the optical clarity of the area is improved from 80% to 98%.
Even though many stone chips or cracks look similar in nature every one has its own distinctive character. Since every crack is different it is important to remember that after a repair is completed, the appearance of the broken area improves, but it does not always disappear from sight. There is potentially some scarring where the break was filled and it usually can be seen by looking at the glass and focusing on the repair area. Sometimes it is visible, sometimes it is almost impossible to remember or find where the damage used to be.
IS WINDSHIELD REPAIR EXPENSIVE?
Did you know that those ugly rock chips on your windshield can be repaired, without replacing your windshield and usually “at little or no cost to you”? If you qualify!
Most insurance companies would rather have you repair your windshield than replace it. This includes rock-chips, bulls-eyes, stars, and combination breaks. A small repair now prevents a windshield replacement in the future. All the major insurance companies recognize the benefits of a repaired windshield over a replacement because of cost, safety, convenience and major problems that occur when a windshield is replaced.
Ninety-five percent of all Insurance Companies will waive your deductible (comprehensive portion), on a repair (and only a repair). Even if your insurance company does not waive the deductible the cost of the repair, is significantly less expensive then the cost of replacing the windshield down the road. It is important to remember that if you have like so many other people have chosen to increase your deductible (between $500.00 and $1,500.00) to lower your insurance premiums, no part of the windshield replacement is covered by your insurance company.
Beware: Windshields save lives by preventing you and your passengers from being thrown out of the vehicle. If the windshield replacement is not done correctly, it could mean the difference between life and death! Your windshield is an essential part of your vehicles air bag system and the structural integrity of the vehicle that helps prevent your roof from caving in the case of a major accident. Some replacement glass may be inferior than the stock windshield your vehicle came with. Sometimes the glass is thinner and weaker, or is not fit properly for your vehicle causing distortion severely affecting visibility and optical clarity.
