Even a small pebble can cause a crack or a chip in your windshield. Driving around with a cracked windshield is not only inconvenient but also fatal. For windshield repair services, you typically have two options – you can drive down to the nearest service centre or you can have service technicians come over to your house.
What Types of Cracks Can Be Repaired?
A windshield crack can be repaired if:
- It is shorter than 6 inches
- The damage is limited to one layer of the windshield
- The middle poly-vinyl butyryl layer is undamaged
- The crack does not begin at the end of the panes
In case of minor damage, you can repair cracked windshield by yourself. For this, you may choose an adhesive kit or opt for a temporary solution such as using superglue.
In all other cases, seeking professional help for windshield repair or windshield replacement is advisable. Choosing between in-workshop and doorstep services to repair cracked windshield will depend on the severity of the damage and convenience.
When to Opt for In-Workshop Windshield Repair
- Skilled technicians
Most workshops have car painters, engine mechanics and electricians in addition to windshield repair professionals. This means that at an in-workshop facility, you have plenty of skilled technicians to fix the problem. On the other hand, when you opt for a doorstep repair facility, only a couple of windshield repair technicians will attend to your car.
- Specialised repair equipment
Workshops are usually equipped with all the machines required for windshield replacement and other services, including engine repair machinery and car wash systems. If you opt for in-workshop windshield repair or replacement, your vehicle will be inspected properly. On the other hand, in a doorstep repair service, the effectiveness of the repair may suffer due to a lack of equipment.
