Top Rated Windshield Repair in Fort Worth & Weatherford, TX
Our Windshield Repair Technology
Our windshield chip repair is quick, easy, and affordable.
When an object, such as a rock, hits the windshield, small bits of glass are thrown out. Initially, the damage will not be very noticeable, but a small chip can quickly grow into a larger break or even a crack. It is always better to get the windshield repaired early, before a small chip becomes a major headache!
Windshield repair technology forces the air out of the glass and replaces it with a resin. This resin cures to produce a windshield the same strength as the original. Repair is possible only when the outer layer of the laminated safety glass is damaged. If rock chips are smaller than the size of a quarter and are not in the driver’s direct line of sight, they can be fixed.

What Types of Car Windshield & Window Glass Can Be Repaired?
There are two common types of glass that are used for windshields and windows, some can be fixed easier than others:
Laminated glass is the most common type of glass often used in windshields.
- Sometimes referred to as safety glass, it is made of two layers of glass with a plastic layer in between.
- Laminated glass is the best type of windshield glass to be repaired.
- If your laminated glass windshield has a small chip or medium crack, it’s likely possible to repair it.
Tempered glass is uncommon for a windshield, but the most common type of glass used for passenger and rear windows.
- It is strong and resistant to breakage.
- Even though it’s much harder to break, when it does, it’s designed to shatter into very small pieces.
- Tempered glass does not contain any resin, which makes it very difficult to repair and likely would need to be replaced.
Should you Repair or Replace your Windshield?
When your windshield is damaged, you may be worried and are thinking “What should I do now, repair or replace it?” The answer depends on the severity of the windshield damage.
If the damage is just a small rock chip or crack, the repair is usually the best option. This is because repairs are less expensive than replacements and they can be done quickly and easily.
However, if the damage is more severe, such as a large crack or multiple cracks, replacement is probably your best option. This is because windshield replacement will provide a better seal and will be more durable than repairs.
Windshield Repair – FAQ
Can I fix a crack in a windshield without replacing the whole windshield?
Yes, it is possible to fix a crack in a windshield without replacing the whole windshield. There are a few different ways to do this, but the most common is to use a windshield repair kit. These kits usually come with a resin that is used to fill the crack, as well as a curing light that helps to set the resin.
What happens if I don’t repair my windshield?
If you don’t repair your windshield, the crack or chip will spread. This is because your windshield is constantly exposed to changes in temperature. The crack will also become more visible, making it a danger to both you and your passengers. In addition, the crack will weaken the windshield, making it more likely to shatter if you get into an accident.
How big of a crack can be repaired on a windshield?
If the crack is less than five inches long, then it can be repaired. If the crack is longer, then the windshield will need to be replaced.
