frequently asked questions about auto glass
IS IT REALLY LESS COSTLY TO REPAIR A WINDSHIELD THAN REPLACE?
Yes, prices vary for cracks, but they are normally under a $100 versus a replacement windshield which can cost as little as $200 and up to $500 for some windshields.

WILL THE REPAIR BE INVISIBLE?
In some cases, the repair will be almost invisible; however most chips and cracks will still refract light at certain angles. Over time, dust can enter the damaged area and affect visibility, so be sure to repair as soon as possible for best results!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REPLACE MY WINDSHIELD? CAN I DRIVE MY CAR RIGHT AWAY WHEN IT IS DONE?
It usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half to replace the windshield, and about another hour for the adhesive to cure to a point where it is safe to drive your vehicle. In total, you should plan on letting your vehicle sit for two to two and a half hours before driving it again.
