Broken window repair is a job for professionals

Window damage repair might seem simple. However, it is not quite the same as changing your own oil.

In fact, Action Auto Glass has certified window repair experts that have seen some drivers make a small problem into a major problem. Read on to discover why experience is so important for auto glass services.

What sort of window damage repair mistakes are common?

Some drivers try to use at-home kits to fix a rock chip. If you are not familiar with the materials and the process, you can actually cause more damage, instead of fixing the original chip.

Web video guides make windshield repair seem simple enough. Just like any online video or tutorial, you have to consider the source. A professional who is trained to do repairs makes it look easy on camera, because they have a steady hand and have done hundreds of repairs. This does not guarantee that you will get it right when you try for the first time in your own garage.

Drivers will choose to just keep driving, waiting until it is so bad that it must be replaced. This is not only a more expensive decision, but an unsafe one. Drivers and passengers could be cut by broken glass if your windshield finally caves in after months of driving despite serious windshield damage.

How can drivers avoid common window damage repair mistakes?

The best choice is to visit a professional auto glass service right away. Once you see a windshield crack, a chipped window or other auto glass damage, let the pros get to work. Remember, if you try to do the work on your own, you might invalidate your warranty or insurance policy.

  1. Thanks for the advice that we need to bring our car to the repair shop immediately if the car window is busted. Last night, a couple of kids went to play beside our car, and they accidentally hit the two back windows. It seems like I have to contact a car repair shop as soon as possible to ask for a quotation and book an appointment.

  2. Nice post! Many may think a small chip from a rock is not a big deal, but its very important to get it looked at by a professional because it can expand into a long crack at any moment. A chip may cost you $35-$50 (which may be covered by your car insurance) but a crack will require a full window replacement and cost your pockets much much more.

      Thank you, Eric. You’re exactly right. A small rock chip can become a big problem if it isn’t fixed quickly, so taking care of the damage early is always the best approach. But doing it yourself is never recommended. That often does more harm than good. So contacting a pro to inspect the damage and provide a solution is absolutely key. Thanks for the comment, Eric. Have a great day.
