Professional Windshield Repair vs. Do-it-yourself
There are three major factors that are missing with a do-it-yourself windshield repair kit that will result in wasted time, wasted money, and a poorly repaired or replaced windshield. They are:
Unlike our professional UV curing lamps, the sun offers an ultra violet strength of less than 10%. The slow and weak cure of the sun is not effective. The glass will go through many temperature changes, expansion and contraction, and vibration during that cure period.
Proper Access to the Damage for the Bonding Resin
Damages, especially “star” cracks, will require access by drilling or probing into the impact point. Without proper access, each extending “leg” of the crack may not properly fill all the way to the end. If any part of the damage is left unrepaired, the entire crack is deemed unrepaired.
Professional windshield repair technicians are well trained. They understand the flexibility of the glass and how to properly fill the damage and evacuate the air without breaking the glass, while minimizing or eliminating the crack or chip.
Inferior DIY Products
Two other factors play an important role in a quality repair: equipment and resin. Since most do-it-yourself repair kits cost under $15, their manufacturing cost is limited to about $3 or $4. For that, you get an imported toy, not a quality repair tool. Professional repair resin is designed to match the optical refractive index of the glass and expand and contract at the same rate as the glass. A professional repairer will have a variety of resins at their disposal, depending on the type of damage and/or the ambient temperature and humidity.
Our certified, industry-leading, optical-quality resin restores the structural integrity of your windshield.
