Even if you have a cracked windshield, repair is still an option.
Any crack over 6" is considered a long crack. As with short cracks, both the original rock chip and the crack must be repaired to restore the structural integrity of the windshield.
Cracks from 6-14" can be repaired, however, I do not provide this service at this time. But I do offer temporary stop crack procedures if you don't have insurance and cannot afford a replacement.
If the windshield crack is longer than 6" your insurance may not pay for the repair.
Usually, insurance companies require that you get a new windshield if it contains a crack over 6 inches long. Not only will you have to pay the deductible, but installation claims often result in increased insurance rates.
|The long crack is in the driver's line of vision. This windshield cannot be repaired.|
For best results, get cracked windshields repaired within 24 hours, if possible.
The quality of the repair often depends on the following:
If you notice a rock chip or small crack starting to spread, call GlassLogic at 972-983-8571 immediately for repair.
If you need your windshield replaced but you cannot afford it, I can do an emergency stop crack procedure. This usually stops a crack from spreading, but the entire length of the crack is not filled with resin.
This is a temporary measure and should not be a long-term substitute for replacing the windshield.
If you cannot afford your deductible, speak to your insurance agent about getting a stop crack repair. I have found that in some cases, insurance companies will pay for a stop crack and waive the deductible.
Sometimes the crack fills on its own during the stop crack procedure. However, I cannot guarantee that the crack will fill more than a few inches from either end.
In some cases, an inspection is necessary for me to determine if a crack is repairable. You can save time and avoid a possible service call fee by measuring the crack first.
I do not repair cracks longer than 6 inches!
If the crack is shorter than 7" but you are still unsure whether it can be fixed, feel free to email a photo of the damage for me to review. (Please contact me for further instructions.)
