Rock Chip Repair
All automotive windshields sold in the US are made of “laminated safety glass.” Your windshield is two pieces of glass laminated with thin layer of plastic sandwiched in between them. If a rock hits your windshield and damages it, we can seal it with our rock chip repair system before it cracks requiring you to purchase a windshield. (Rock chips must meet certain criteria to be repairable.) Here at affordable auto glass we can do mobile windshield repair in orange county either we can come to you, or you can come to use, and receive a free car wash.
The repair system we use is a “vacuum system” and has been successful all over the country for over a decade. The system removes the air from the rock chip and seals it with a clear resin preventing the chip from turning into a crack. This whole process can be completed in about 15-20 minutes. We can repair rock chip up to the size of a quarter.
Rock chips will sometimes have splinters or circles like a bull’s eye and can often start larger cracks in your auto glass. By getting a rock chip repaired, you may not be able to get all of your clarity back, but you will be able to re-bond the glass so the crack does not spread.
In extreme hot or cold, rock chips tend to start to spread through the glass. A perfect example is when you get in your hot car and turn on the air conditioner. When a crack exceeds the length of a dollar bill, the windshield will require replacement, which normally costs 3-5 times the price of the rock chip repair. This is why timely rock chip repair is more important in the summer and winter.
There is no real way to tell if or when a rock chip will start to spread. Before it starts to spread, you’ll really want to take action unless you want to pay more. Lifetime warranties are included in every rock chip repair at no additional cost.
