When it comes to auto glass repair and replacement, understanding what’s involved can help you make informed decisions. In partnership with Hammond AutoGlass, a leader in the industry, we’ll demystify the processes behind auto glass repair and replacement.
The Auto Glass Repair Process
Auto glass repair is a cost-effective solution for minor chips and cracks that have not compromised the entire windshield‘s integrity. Here’s how Hammond AutoGlass‘s expert technicians perform this delicate operation:
The first step is a thorough evaluation of the damage. The technician determines whether a repair is possible based on the size, type, and location of the chip or crack.
The damaged area is thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt or debris. A specialized tool is used to create a clean pathway to the chip or crack.
A high-quality resin is injected into the damaged area. This resin fills the crack or chip, restoring the windshield’s structural integrity.
Curing and Polishing
The resin is then cured under UV light to harden it and bond it with the glass. Once cured, the repaired area is polished to restore clarity and smoothness.
The Auto Glass Replacement Process
If the damage to your windshield or auto glass is too severe for repair, a full replacement becomes necessary. Here’s what to expect when you choose Hammond AutoGlass for auto glass replacement:
The damaged windshield is carefully removed to avoid damaging the vehicle’s paint or bonding surface. The area is then cleaned and prepared for the new windshield.
A new windshield, meeting or exceeding original equipment manufacturer standards, is carefully fitted into the frame. The technicians at Hammond AutoGlass use advanced tools and techniques to ensure a precise fit and airtight seal.
The vehicle is then left to sit for a specified period to allow the adhesive to cure fully. This curing time ensures a safe and secure bond between the windshield and the vehicle frame.
A final quality check is performed to confirm the correct installation and function of any connected technology, like rain sensors or heads-up displays.
