Windshield Repair is our specialty!
Chip repair isn’t something you want to wait on. The purpose of a repair is to save your windshield from additional damage. If you leave a chip alone it can quickly spread. This is especially true in the wet environment of the Upper Midwest. All it takes is a quick freeze to expand the water in the chip and turn it into a crack. Unless you want a new windshield, you want to get your rock chip repair done ASAP.
Don’t Let That Chip Become A Crack!!

Can my windshield be repaired?
If you’ve been driving for very long, you probably know the sinking feeling that follows the loud crack of a rock bouncing off of your windshield. When you finally inspect it, one question inevitably comes to mind: Can I get this repaired or do I need to replace the whole thing?
You will need a replacement windshield if
The windshield crack is longer then 3 inches
The damage goes through both layers of glass
the windshield damage is too close to the edge of the windshield to repair
the windshield damage is directly in the drivers line of sight
I don’t think it can be repaired, how much does a new windshield cost?
Crack / Chip Repair
Here’s what you should know about the repair process and when a replacement may be necessary. While most repairs are completed without issue, there are rare instances that a windshield repair can cause the damage to “crack out”. Although this happens on rare occasion, Glass Masters will gladly transfer all repair fees over to the replacement should it become necessary! Know that all repairs will be slightly visible when finished. AGSC standards state that any windshield with damage larger than three inches should be replaced.
Sometimes we can simply polish out unsightly scratches, metal deposits, aluminum deposits and other surface damage. The rule of thumb is if you can feel it with your finger nail you cant polish it out. Give us a call with any questions
