Technology advancements in windshield repair now make it possible to avoid expensive windshield replacement!
But our sophisticated technology is not without limitations and we can’t repair every windshield. At Glass Doctor Ann Arbor, our engineers strive to repair your cracked windshield. However, for your safety, we recommend replacement when needed.
How do technicians decide whether to repair or replace a damaged windshield?
When windshield chips and cracks spread across an area of the glass that is too large, then replacement becomes necessary. Windshield repair cannot always return the structural strength to your vehicle.
Did you know your windshield protects the structural integrity of your vehicle?
The windshield provides almost 60% of the vehicle’s structural integrity in the event of a rollover.
At Glass Doctor Ann Arbor, we will implement a complete windshield replacement strategy that will boost the structural strength of your car and return it back to its former pre-cracked condition.
What do Glass Doctor technicians look for when they inspect a damaged windshield?
Breadth and stretch of the crack: If the length of crack is relatively large, then the best option is to replace it rather than repair it.
