Windshield repair in Connecticut made easy
There’s no telling what can happen on the roads and highways in Connecticut. A small crack or rock chip from a piece of flying gravel might not seem like much at first, but over time it will undoubtedly grow into a larger crack that can put your and your passengers at serious risk.
These small cracks and chips splinter out and grow when subjected to vibrations from your vehicle, which as you can imagine, happens constantly and gradually. Eventually, cracks can reach the ends of the windshield, at which point replacement is often necessary. Sometimes, cracks splinter out into a wider spider web array, blocking your vision of the road ahead and weakening the structural integrity of the windshield.
It’s always better to try to have your windshield repaired rather than replaced, but if you delay too long or if the damage is too severe, replacement is the only feasible option. What this means is that for most small cracks that are manageable, your best bet is to take it into a nearby auto glass shop sooner rather than later.
The good news is that the reputable auto glass shops in Connecticut found right here on myWindshield can get the job done right the first time, for a fair price and with a quick turnaround.
They do this by filling in the crack or chip with a compound, normally an epoxy resin base, into the damaged area by injection. The compound is then heated and thus fills in any air gaps, then it is cured with UV lights. Often, a simple repair can be done in as little as half an hour or an hour; more complex repairs or replacements can take half a day or so.
