REPAIR OR REPLACE YOUR WINDSHIELD?
Modern technology makes it possible to repair windshields that would have previously been scrapped. Be aware however, that even the most advanced glass repair techniques have their limits. So if your windshield is severely damaged, new glass may still be in your future.
HOW DOES WINDSHIELD REPAIR WORK?
Trained glass technicians can repair nickle-sized rock chips and keep them from spreading. When a chip is repaired properly your windshield will retain its full strength and integrity –and save you plenty of money.
B&D Autobody injects of a special resin into the damaged area using a tool that attaches directly to the glass. Once injected, this resin is then cured and polished to restore clarity and strength to the glass.
When a chip occurs, it often spreads into the windshield’s inner layer of plastic, which is sandwiched between two layers of glass. In some instances, a drill is used to make a clean passageway to the plastic, where the resin is injected to repair the damage.
It’s always advisable to have chips repaired quickly. Procrastinating only allows them to get larger and for dirt to work its way in, affecting the effectiveness and clarity of any repair.
