At J. Royce Auto Glass, we pride ourselves on taking great care of our customers. Since we're always happy to answer any questions potential or current customers may have, we get into a lot of conversations about auto glass repair. A lot of the same questions come up time and time again in these conversations, which is why we want to help you out by answering five of them right now:
1. How Long Does a Windshield Repair Usually Take?
A common misconception is that repairing a windshield takes a lot of time. When done by a professional, a comprehensive repair can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. And what's even better is when you choose a mobile repair company like J. Royce Auto Glass, you don't have to spend time taking your car anywhere. Instead, a talented technician will come directly to wherever your car is parked.
2. When is the Right Time to Get a Windshield Repaired?
The best time to get a windshield repair is as soon as you notice any damage. The reason it's always better to take care of repairs sooner rather than later is this type of damage almost always get worse. So the sooner you call a professional auto glass repair company, the safer you'll be in the car and easier the entire process will be.
3. Do Insurance Companies Cover Auto Glass Repair?
Another common misconception about auto glass repair is it's something that has to be paid for out of pocket. The good news for anyone who's in need of a windshield repair is they can file a claim for this work through their insurance provider. We actually covered this topic in detail in our post about insurance and auto glass.
4. What Does Repairing a Car Windshield Entail?
The first step in the repair process is to clear out any broken glass. From there, air trapped within the damaged area is released. Once the air is out, the resin can flow into the cracks and completely seal them. The repair process is completed by capping the area with a second resin, curing it and then polishing.
5. How Does Windshield Repair Compare to Replacement?
Last but certainly not least is a question we're asked quite regularly. Potential customers often wonder whether they need their windshield repaired or replaced. A common element of this question is what exactly sets the two services apart. The main difference is a replacement involves taking out the current windshield and putting in a new one, while repairs take care of the damage to the existing windshield. As far as figuring out which one you need done, we recommend reading our post on saving money with windshield repairs.
