If your vehicle has recently encountered windshield damage, you may be wondering whether windshield repair or windshield replacement is necessary. While expert auto glass can repair most chipped windshields, cracks typically longer than three inches indicate an immediate need for windshield replacement in order to protect the structural integrity of your car and the safety of its occupants.

Timely windshield replacement is essential to your safety. According to the Auto Glass Safety Council, a windshield makes up to 60% of the structural integrity in a rollover accident, although the percentage varies depending of the car’s make and model. Expert auto glass performs a series of steps to ensure the proper windshield replacement.
The windshield is carefully removed to avoid damage to the paint and bonding surface, which can cause leaks and corrosion.
- A windshield matching the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) quality is selected for installation.
- Only Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) approved adhesives are applied to cars during the windshield replacement.
- The new windshield is replaced following procedures recommended by the AGSC. The recommended one hour drive-away time for passenger safety is then observed, allowing the adhesive to cure for safe driveaway time.
- We review our G12®Road Hazard Guarantee, which states if your new windshield is damaged within 12 months, we will repair chips and cracks free of charge. If the windshield is broken beyond repair, Glass Doctor will replace the glass for free.
If your windshield is damaged or broken, you can see why it is important to more than just the driver to get your windshield repair.
