Windshield replacement vs. repair.
Your windshield is designed to absorb a lot of force, but after an accident may require replacement. Luckily, if the damage is only a few inches long, it can usually be repaired rather quickly. Windshield repair is much more affordable and faster than a full windshield replacement.
Minor glass damage can be caused by objects like gravel or hail that can hit the glass at high speed or even by car accidents. When these things happen, we always recommend you take the car to your auto mechanic for a checkup.
It can often be impossible to spot a crack in the glass with your naked eye, so it is a good idea to leave the assessment to our trained technicians to find and repair any less visible damage.
Window cracks may seem small and insignificant, but a compromised windshield is more likely to blow up in your face the next time you need it to withstand great force. Due to this, we urge you to give us a call and schedule your service today 404-458-9019
Things to consider when deciding between repair and replacement
– Chip or crack needs to be only a few inches long
This is important because the more significant the damage is, the more danger it poses to you and other passengers. Longer cracks are impossible to repair entirely and will remain a weakness in the windshield. Any further damage to the glass is guaranteed to re-open said cracks and potentially blow chunks of glass in your face.
– Many chips, even if small posses a treat
Chips weaken the specific area they are in and poses a severe threat to anyone in the car. If you were to get into an accident while driving a car with a badly chipped windshield, the glass could likely burst into many smaller pieces.
– If the damage is in front of a sensor or a camera, replacement is needed
For your safety, there should never be anything other than the clear glass in front of any of the sensors in your car. Likewise, if the damage is in front of the camera lens, we cannot leave it muddy and will always opt for windshield replacement.
