Auto Glass Repair

Auto Glass Repair is a crucial maintenance requirement for any vehicle as it stops stone chips from spreading and becoming full blown cracks. Most auto glass repairs go unnoticed by the owner of the vehicle as it is usually tiny and sometimes in a spot where they do not see it. It is important to check your windshield for auto glass repair monthly with a quick visual inspection if you do a lot of freeway driving.

It is also important to note that if the chip is in the blacked out sections of the auto glass then the chip cannot be repaired because the urethane is underneath the blacked out sections. An auto glass repair attempt on the blacked out sections of a windshield will have a high chance of spreading and cracking. It will also cause UV light to pass through where it was not allowed before which may cause the windshield to not stick anymore in that section. This is why we at Amco will inspect your windshield and tell you if the auto glass repair is feasible. If you have any questions, please ask our certified auto glass technicians before the work is started on the auto glass repair.
