Why repair a windshield?
Repairing a damaged windshield makes sense for several reasons. Repairs save money by preventing the need for a more costly windshield replacement, and are very convenient taking only a few minutes. Repairs are also safe, as the glass is never removed and the original factory seal is maintained.
What kind of damage can be repaired?
Edmonton Windshield Service repairs stone damage or stone "rock chips" up to the size of a loonie. Edmonton Windshield Service does not recommend fixing any longer cracks more than 6 inches.There are other companies who would fill in these long cracks for you and charge you for it. This type of fix won't last and shortly you will have to replace the windshield and also have to pay for that additional cost. We will only fill in rock chips that make sense from a safety stand point as well as being economically feasible for our customer.
For rock chip best results are obtained when the damage is repaired right away, before it gets contaminated from the car wash, road grime or inclement weather.
As soon as you get a crack we recommend you bring it to us right away.
It's also better to get it done before the damage spreads.
