A Technician Inspects a Vehicle’s Windshield Damage

After arriving at the address provided, the technician will inspect your vehicle’s windshield damage to determine if it is repairable with injected clear resins. Certain types of chips or cracks are not repairable because the resins will not create a durable surface that will protect a driver and passengers during a rollover or collision. If a repair is possible, then the technician can make a repair quickly. However, a technician cannot perform auto glass repair on large chips or cracks, but they can replace the windshield immediately. With mobile windshield repair, a technician has the equipment needed to remove the damaged glass safely before installing the correct new windshield.

The primary goal of the technician is making sure that a windshield is replaced or repaired correctly to protect a driver during an accident.
