WINDSHIELD CHIP REPAIR
Our windshield chip repairs are guaranteed not to crack or spread for as long as you own your vehicle. If you’re not 100% satisfied with your repair at the time of the service, it’s on us.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we now offer a convenient, contactless service. There’s no need for you to leave your home. We accept contactless debit, credit and e-transfer payments.
HOW IS MY WINDSHIELD CHIP REPAIRED?
We inspect your windshield and identify any damaged area(s). This prevents a hidden rock chip from being missed and expanding later on.
We remove any surface debris using a specialized tool. Clean access to the rock chip or crack 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 is mounted directly 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 and the bridge is mounted, a high bond strength acrylic resin is injected into the damaged area. The bridge’s injector pin will gently push resin into the break.
Afterwards, vacuum and pressure cycles are alternated to help remove the air and push the resin.
After the rock chip or crack has been filled, it is covered with a pit filling resin and a finishing film is applied.
The break is then exposed to a specialized lamp using ultraviolet (UV) light. The UV cures the repair resin outside of the break and the glass inside the break.
Once the windshield chip and pit resin has cured, the excess is removed. A straight edge razor blade is used and a glass cleaner is applied. This crucial step is done to ensure that the pit is filled and that the surface of the impact point is perfectly smooth with the rest of your windshield.
We will buff the surface damage with pit polish which will help reduce the visibility of the exterior of the pit repair.
