Windshield repair

Black Glass team has extensive experience in windshield repair. Minor damages (line, star, dot, eye) can be repaired bringing back the original properties of the car glass.

As soon as the windshield damage occurs, it should be protected from being further assaulted by dirt. If you are not able to have it repaired immediately, keep dirt away form the crack with a piece of clear packing tape.

Don’t wait too long and don’t allow the crack to expand, because it might not be repaired afterwards. Car glass repair is possible in all weather conditions (rain, snow, wind etc.).

The importance of auto glass repair

If not repaired, car glass damage might expand to the extent when car glass repair shouldn’t be performed. This process accelerates in winter months due to heating which can cause the crack to expand significantly. In that case the car window should be replaced. The sooner you react, the bigger are the chances for car glass repair.

Damaged car glass is not safe because it can shatter while driving. Upon professionally performed repair, car glass will regain its original properties which guarantee major safety for the driver and its passengers.

Car glass repair is faster and more affordable process than car glass replacement.
