A++ I called to get a quote on Thursday around 4:30 and they were here to change my windshield by 10:00 Friday Morning. The installers were incredibly friendly and intelligent not to mention speedy fast. I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to do the complete replacement in the time they did not to mention the cheapest around that I could find for quality work. I would recommend to anyone. Cannonism - "under promise and over deliver." Thanks guys for doing excellent work.

What is a Windshield Chip?

So what exactly are windshield chips, rock chips and windshield cracks? Windshield chips (aka "rock chips") are a very small cracks or chips on a windshield that can be caused by a number of fly debris. Generally a chip is a crack in the glass that is under .5 inches. Any larger would be considered a "crack." Flying debris can range from pieces of wood, gravel from trucks, and loose pavement from the road and can all cause rockchips. Even bad weather such as hail and falling tree limbs can crack windshields. There is no real prevention of rock chips except watch you're driving distance behind other vehicles and keep an eye out for severe weather. Unfortunately sometimes even with taking precautions rock chips can still occur. Luckily there is a fairly easy procedure at a low price that can patch up a cracked windshield.

Rock Chip Repair (The Process)

Rock chip repair involves the injection of special adhesives into the damaged area of the glass. This process varies in success due to the size of the damaged area, moisture, dirt in the area, and the recent discovery of the crack. The repair is designed to permanently fix the windshield; it's a patch job on a broken part that will help extend the life of the windshield. A repair, however, isn't magic and will not be a flawless restoration. Since there are many different factors that go into a successful chip repair there is not a 100% guarantee that it will work every time. Although repairing a chip is less expensive than completely replacing the glass it is not an equal alternative to getting a whole new windshield. In rare occasions the rock chip repair can actually make the crack larger. It is very important for the customer to keep the damaged area free of dirt and moisture. Contaminants are often the reason the repair does not work correctly. So a shaded or covered parking spot is very crucial to the repair. Rock chip repair is a very convenient way to fix or repair your damaged windshield.

Windshield Crack Repair (Too Large To Be A Chip)

Simply put windshield cracks are just chips that extend over 1 inch in length. However, to qualify for windshield crack repair pricing a chip must extend beyond 3 inches in length. Mobile Glass has extensive information on these repairs on our crack repair page. If you've considered performing the crack repair yourself you may want to think again. Cracks are much more difficult to repair than chips and can cost much more than its worth to purchase the proper tools and materials. This is job best left to the pros.
