Damaged windshields are a potential hazard waiting to happen in the event of an accident. Once you discover that your windshield is compromised, it is best to have it replaced or repaired immediately to ensure the safety of your family and the structural integrity of your vehicle. Over the years, as cars became more efficient, the structural integrity of a vehicle extended beyond frames to include the windshield as well. The windshield glass is installed using an insulating adhesive called urethane to help maintains its structural integrity and prevent water and air leaks. It is worth noting that the strength of a vehicle depends on the windshield to a degree.
Considering the nature and delicacy involved with installing a windshield, we take the safety and structural strength of our customers’ vehicles very seriously. Adhesives play a big role in the safe replacement of a windshield of a vehicle. Hence, we opt to make use of the Sika brand, who are industry leaders in adhesives that are suitable for glass.
It is truly our pleasure to deliver outstanding customer service, high-quality installation and the opportunity to get to know you and your vehicle.
Auto Glass Chip Repair
The Windshield chip repair process
Chip repair is quickly becoming one of the most popular repair services due to affordability and time of repair. In the hands of a professional with the correct tools, making a windshield look new is quite easy and fast. However, it is important to note that when structural integrity is a potential issue, windshield replacement is generally a safer approach.
Windshield chip repair involves resins having a similar appearance and feel to glass
The process involves using a special tool like a drill to bore tiny holes into the damaged glass to create a vacuum and remove the air in the windshields. Then the resin is placed in specific places on the glass.
Eliminate windshield air pockets with a high quality vacuum process
The vacuum also serves to release pressure that might have otherwise lead to cracks when resins are applied to the glass. The liquid resin is left to solidify when applied, and this will ensure that the glass is well repaired and the windshield regains its strength. The resin curing process can be expedited to speed up service if necessary, along with a final polishing of the resin.
