WINDSHIELD CHIP REPAIR
Windshield damage usually happens when you least expect it.
Sometimes a full windshield replacement is the only solution. But at Dynamo, if a rock chip is 2 inches or smaller, a quick windshield repair may be all that you need.
When can Dynamo repair my windshield?
Dynamo can usually repair your windshield when:
- The rock chip is 2 inches or smaller
- You have four chips or less
- The damage is not on the second layer of glass

Windshield repair is good for the environment. Most windshields are non-recyclable and end up in landfills every year. We help save the planet by reducing the amount of windshields sitting in landfills.
How is my windshield repaired?
We inspect your windshield and identify any damaged area(s). This prevents a hidden rock chip from going unnoticed and expanding later on. We remove any surface debris using a specialized tool. Clean access to the rock chip is essential. If required, we will use a fine tipped carbide drill bit to access the center of the break.
A specialized windshield repair bridge mounts over the damaged area. The bridge uses a “vacuum” to remove the air inside the break. This will prevent air bubbles and prepare the break for the repair resin.
Once the damage is free of debris, a high bond strength acrylic resin injects into the damaged area. The bridge’s injector pin will push resin into the break. Afterwards, vacuum and pressure cycles help remove the air and push the resin.
After the rock chip repair is complete, a pit filling resin fills the impact point. The break is then exposed to a specialized lamp using ultraviolet (UV) light. The UV light cures the repair resin outside of the break and the glass inside the break.
Once the pit resin has cured, we remove the excess resin with a straight edge razor blade. This ensures that the pit is full and the surface of the impact point is smooth with the rest of your windshield. We will buff the surface damage with a pit polish. This will help reduce the visibility of the exterior of the pit repair.
