Auto Glass Repair in West Sacramento
The road is full of hazards, and your windshield sees the brunt of them. From debris kicked up by a semi to a fallen tree branch, there are countless ways a windshield can become chipped or cracked. When it does, make Auto Glass Solutions your glass repair professionals. We pride ourselves in offering same-day services and employing skilled technicians that will get the job done right.
Most of us have experienced a windshield chip before. You’re driving down the highway when — “pop!” — a pebble from a tire or the back of a dump truck hurls into your windshield and leaves a divot, or bull’s-eye. A tiny chip might not seem like a big deal, but it can actually create a weak point on your windshield, making it more prone to crack if there is another impact, like if you get into an accident. A chip in your line of vision can also be distracting and dangerous. If your bull’s-eye chip is about the size of a quarter or smaller, call Auto Glass Solutions for same-day repairs. Our skilled technicians will come to you, thoroughly clean out any debris that’s in the chip and fill the chip with high quality resin. They’ll harden the resin with an ultraviolet light and then grind away any excess resin to leave a smooth finish. Your windshield will be as good as new.
Your windshield can crack for any number of reasons. A rogue tree branch crashing down where your car was parked can leave a crack, as can a stray baseball from the neighborhood kids’ game. Do you live in an area where the temperatures swing from extremely cold to extremely hot? These drastic temperature changes can also cause stress cracks in a windshield. One common mistake people make is pouring hot water on the windshield in order to thaw out winter ice—doing this can easily crack your windshield as the glass quickly expands and contracts due to the changing temperatures. Similar to a bull’s-eye chip, a crack will weaken the windshield, making further damage more likely, and a crack in your line of vision makes it harder to see the road clearly. If the crack in your windshield is six inches long or smaller, call us right away to have it fixed. Cracks will spread over time due to temperature changes and vibration from driving, and larger cracks cannot be repaired, meaning you’ll need to replace the windshield instead.
