AUTO GLASS REPAIR
All stone chips are different, just like all snowflakes are different. Angle, speed, trajectory, and how much tiny shatter pieces of glass are inside the chip are all factors that will effect the repair. Some will completely disappear but some will look only diminished. Insurance companies will wave your deductible if you repair your glass because they want to delay paying for the whole auto glass replacement.
WILL MY STONE CHIP DISAPPEAR?
Yes and No. It really depends on the chip. Most stone chips will dissipate and shrink but only some will completely disappear. Also, the impact point where the drilling takes place is always going to be visible. The impact point is usually a tiny incision.
HOW MUCH WILL I PAY?
Stone chips are either $50 dollars if you want to pay for it yourself. Or if you use the insurance your deductible is automatically waived by the insurance companies to have it repaired for FREE.
IS IT WORTH IT TO REPAIR MY AUTO GLASS?
Stone chips can spread at any moment costing you hundreds or even more then a thousand depending on the type of glass your vehicle comes with. So a free stone chip repair from the insurance or even just $50 dollars out of your own pocket is worth it. It can prolong the life of you glass for many years!
Stone chips may last a day or may last the life of your vehicle. It is the nature of glass and is hard to determine just by looks. Please note that while drilling your windshield has a 1 in 1000 chance of cracking during the repair!
