Repair Or Replace Your Windshield?

If your window develops a crack or chip, don’t wait to get it looked at by the experts at Frank’s Auto Glass. Once the auto glass is compromised with a crack or chip, you risk further danger and further damage to the glass. We can advise you as to whether or not you need a repair or replacement.

Factors Affecting the Decision to Repair or Replace

A window that has been chipped or cracked may generally be repaired, but this is not always the case. You may need a replacement window depending on the severity of the damage, the age of the window, as well as the extent of the problem. Here are a few factors to consider before making a decision to repair or replace:

Size and Depth The latest Chicago auto glass repair technology allows technicians to repair large chips and long cracks in the windshield. Our experts will evaluate the size and depth of the damages to determine if the repair technology is the right option.

Type – Damage to a windshield can take the form of different cracks and chips. Some are more easily repaired than others are. Among the easiest to repair are bullseye cracks, partial bulleye cracks, dings, or pits. If the chips and cracks are less than a quarter in size, they can be repaired. If, however, they are larger or your windshield has more than one, it may be necessary to consider a replacement.

Location If the repair has the potential to leave discoloration that could interfere with the clarity of the view by the driver, replacing may be the better option. In addition, any crack that is close to the edge of the windshield’s frame may have a serious effect on the overall integrity of the entire windshield. This can compromise the safety of the driver, the passenger and the other drivers on the road.

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
