When to Repair Auto Glass
Rock chip damage such as bullseyes, stars, and combination breaks, can be fixed. The rock chip should be smaller than 1.25 inches (the size of a fifty-cent piece).
Cracks can also be fixed but fall under different guidelines. See Windshield Crack Repair.
For windshields that are not completely cracked out, a windshield repair performed by a certified technician is an excellent choice, and is commonly recommended by auto insurance companies. I am certified by the National Windshield Repair Association and have over 10 years’ experience repairing windshields.

How to Choose an Auto Glass Service Provider
Auto glass shops usually install front and back windshields and car door glass in addition to doing windshield chip repair. However, I am an auto glass specialist who is specially trained to do rock chip and small crack repair only.
When you need a rock chip in your windshield fixed, it is wise to choose a windshield repair only company, such as GlassLogic.
To avoid conflict of interest and getting ripped off.
Auto glass replacement shops that also fix rock chips often discourage repair as an option because it is more profitable to replace the windshield. In many cases, their chip repairs have a high failure rate. To avoid liability, they tell the client that the cost of the failed repair can be applied to a new windshield. (See our Auto Windshield Repair Scams page for more information about this kind of rip off.)
GlassLogic Windshield Repair is an insurance network approved auto glass shop. We file the auto insurance claim for you.
If you are unsure, I can help determine if your windshield can be fixed or not. If it is repairable, comprehensive coverage usually pays the auto insurance claim. This is called a no-fault, no-cost claim and usually does not affect your coverage in a negative way.
Most insurance companies prefer chip repair, but a few are known to aggressively steer their clients to their own affiliated automotive glass installation shops. These shops often talk the customer into getting the windshield replaced instead of repaired. The customer then has to pay the deductible out-of-pocket.
Don’t let this happen to you! When contacting your insurance company, know your rights. Steering is illegal. Under state and federal laws, you have the right to select your own service provider. Make sure to tell the claims representative you selected GlassLogic Windshield Repair as your auto glass repair shop.
