Repair of Windshield Chips, Cracks Can Save the Windshield and Money Too, Expert Says
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- You've looked through it, looked around it, and tried to ignore it -- it's that chip or crack in your windshield. After all, you may think -- it hasn't gotten any bigger -- how bad can it be? It can get a lot worse -- and cost you a lot more, according to John Barlow, President of Safelite AutoGlass, the nation's largest auto glass service company. Barlow says a simple test can determine whether that chip can be repaired, and save you money. For more information about windshield repair, see www.safelite.com . "Most people ignore chips, thinking that they are not a problem. Now is the worst time to have a chip in your windshield," says Barlow. "Changing temperatures cause the glass in your windshield to expand and contract, causing that chip to spread until you need a new windshield!" Barlow says that a dollar bill can tell you if your windshield can be repaired or should be replaced. If the bill can cover the chip or crack, it's likely that a Safelite repair specialist can fix it for you (for just $59.95). Barlow points out these benefits of windshield repair: * Most insurers pay 100% for repair, so there is no cost to you. * Repair is fast and easy - it takes just 30 minutes. * Safelite will come to your home or office at no extra charge. * Repair helps you avoid replacing your windshield. * You retain your windshield's "factory seal." Windshield repair is a simple process. The repair technician removes dirt and moisture from the damaged area of the windshield. Once the area is clean, the technician injects a clear, strong resin into the chip or crack. Then the resin is cured with an ultraviolet light. The completed repair is cleaned and polished -- and your car is ready to go! "Repair may not cause the damage to disappear," Barlow says. "But repair will stop the damage from spreading, and restore the structural integrity of your windshield." If you have a chip or crack in your windshield, don't wait -- repair it today!
