Windshield Repair DIY Kits & Why You Should Not Use Them

windshield repair DIY kits

Certain fixes are best left to the professionals. Sure, you may be a handy person who enjoys repairing things on your own - but when it comes to your vehicle’s windshield, DIY is not the way to go. Let’s take a look at the ways your windshield can get damaged and why fixing it the right way is crucial.

Whether loose gravel or a piece of hail lands on your windshield creating damage, it’s not something to ignore. That very small chip can quickly become a large crack creating a safety hazard for you and your fellow drivers. The glass of your windshield expands with temperature changes. If your windshield has a crack, the longer it goes unrepaired, the bigger the crack will get. That damaged area is now the weak point and is more prone to future cracks and chips.

Repairing your windshield crack ASAP keeps you safe and prevents you from needing to do a complete windshield replacement. It may be tempting to use a windshield repair kit yourself, but we do not recommend it. Here’s why: If a repair kit is used incorrectly, or on a crack that does not fit the parameters of the kit, it will cause further damage, and prevent future repairs to the chip – which could force a replacement of the entire windshield, a much costlier option.

When using a kit, a mistake in the repair cannot be undone. Once the chip or crack is filled with the repair adhesive, it becomes impossible to seal correctly in the future. Our professional auto glass technicians perform windshield repairs and windshield replacements that are accurate, fast, convenient, and affordable.

We understand the insurance billing process and we have an outstanding reputation with insurance companies and agents throughout the country. We handle all the insurance payment and reimbursement paperwork and make sure your claim is processed properly and expeditiously.
