Unfortunately   the   majority   of   customers   that   have   had   this   type   of   maintenance repair   done   on   their   windshield   by   our   competitors   are   expecting   the   crack   to   be totally   invisible   after   the   procedure   and   that’s   simply   not   the   case.      In   the   end they   are   not   happy   with   the   result   and   end   up   here   at   our   service   center   to purchase   a   new   windshield   so   due   to   a   lack   of   customer   satisfaction   Phoenix Glass does not offer that service.
If   the   damage   is   in   the   direct   line   of   your   view   on   the   driver   or   in   the   center   acute   area that   the   drivers   side   windshield   wiper   wipes   off   or   if   it   is   larger   than   a   quarter,   Most insurance companies will suggest that your windshield be replaced.
Any area outside the drivers 9.5 x 11 acute area is safe to repair
If   your   shopping   for   a   new   windshield,    you   need   to   be   aware   that   depending   on   the   type and   size   of   the   break,   your   windshield   may   be   able   to   be   repaired   instead   of   replaced. Windshield   repairs   help   retain   the   structural   integrity   of   the   glass.      A   windshield   repair   is   a permanent   process   that   removes   air   from   the   break   and   fills   it   with   a   durable   resin.   The process   bonds   the   glass   to   the   resin,   restores   strength   to   the   windshield,   improves   the break’s   appearance   and   prevents   the   break   from   spreading   and   are    more   convenient   in   that   they   can be   done   in   as   little   as   30   minutes.      Having   your   windshield   repaired   instead   of   replaced   can   also   help save   you   and   your   insurance   company   a   significant   amount   off   money.      In   the   long   run   this   will   help   you help   your   insurance   company   to   be   able   to   keep   your   insurance   rates   at   a   minimum.      Another   added   benefit   of having   your   windshield   repaired   instead   of   replaced   is   that   your   vehicle’s   original   factory   windshield   urethane   adhesive   seal   will   remain untouched and if your into thinking green your old windshield won’t end up taking up space in a land fill.
Examples of different types of windshield breaks or chips that can be successfully repaired
Bull’s Eye break
It   is   not   necessary   to   repair   an   minor   impact   spot   (otherwise   known   as   a   minor   pit)   in   your windshield   as   long   as   it   doesn’t   have   any   crack   legs   emanating   from   the   pit.       There   is   a   procedure that   can   be   done   to   make   it   look   better   for   a   short   time.      It   involves   grinding   the   pit   to   a   much   larger diameter   and   adding   a   special   pit   filler   resin   to   level   the   spot   out   but   the   bond   usually   fails   a   short time   later   allowing   the   resin   to   pop   out   of   the   pit      at   a   late   so   we   do   not   recommend   it   for   our customers.

A   windshield   glass   repair   is   much   less   expensive   than   a   replacement   but   if   you   wait   to   long   and   the   damage   has time   to   spread   a   windshield   repair   won’t   be   an   option   for   you.      Personal   safety   is   also   an   important   issue   as   a   faulty windshield   can   compromise   your   safety   and   that   of   your   precious   passengers.      If   you   have   a   break   in   your windshield   its   ability   to   withstand   an   impact   is   substantially   reduced.      In   todays   vehicles   the   windshields   are   an important   component   of   the   vehicles   overall   structural   integrity   so   it’s   not   something   you   should   put   off   for   another day.
