Why Should You Have Your Windshield Repaired?

Windshield Glass RepairIt is easy to underestimate just how dangerous a cracked or chipped windshield can be. Cracks and chips in a windshield pose dangers to the driver and passengers in the car, as well as to other drivers on the road and pedestrians.

Cracks in a windshield can disrupt the view of the driver. Whether it’s the crack itself or the sun reflecting off the crack, it can cause a visible disruption that could allow the driver to crash.

If you have a crack, chip, or pit in your window, take a few moments to have it repaired. Many insurance companies cover the costs and might even waive the deductible. If you wait and delay getting the windshield repaired, you risk the cracks spreading or “spidering” and getting worse which may require a costly windshield replacement down the road.

Fixing the windshield may not be as inconvenient as you think – and the cost may be much lower than you expect.

Our SAME DAY MOBILE GLASS SERVICE can come to you so you don’t have to go without your car. Depending on your insurance company and how the damage happened, sometimes the cost of the repair is completely covered. No matter what your situation is, our experienced reps can work with your insurance company to determine your coverage.

Band-aid just isn’t gonna cut it!

Windshield Repair Guarantee

Expert Auto Glass Repair and Replacement

Automobile glass is warranted against defects in material or workmanship for as long as you own or lease the vehicle in which the glass was installed. After market truck sliders are warranted against defects in material and workmanship for one year from the date of installation.

Exclusions

IN NO EVENT SHALL ANTHONY VOLK AUTO GLASS BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. Some states do not allow the exclusion, or limitation of incidental, consequential damages; therefore, the above limitation, or exclusion may not apply to you. In addition, damage not involving defective workmanship or materials is expressly excluded from coverage under this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

General Information

Windshield Replacements With Adhesive

  • If your windshield was installed with an adhesive, Anthony Volk Auto Glass recommends that you avoid driving your vehicle during the curing period.
  • The adhesive used to install your windshield was designed to meet federal safety standards for retention in the event of a collision or rollover. To insure this safety feature, do not drive the vehicle immediately following instillation, until the adhesive has cured. Please allow six (6) hours or twenty-four (24) hours if your car has an airbag. UNTIL THE ADHESIVE HAS CURED THOROUGHLY, THE WINDSHIELD MAY NOT REMAIN IN POSITION DURING A ROLLOVER, PUTTING PASSENGERS IN THE VEHICLE IN DANGER OF SEVERE OR FATAL INJURY.

The process involved in repairing a windshield involves the injection of special adhesives into the damaged part of the glass. The degree of success of each repair is a function of several variables. The best results are obtained when the damage is recent, the point of impact is small, the cracks around the damaged area are small and there is no moisture or foreign matter in the damaged area.

In some cases, the attempt to repair the windshield can result in the chip or crack becoming larger. Anthony Volk Auto Glass is not responsible for such damage.

How to Reach Anthony Volk Auto Glass

If you do incur a problem that is covered by this warranty, you may contact Anthony Volk’s Auto Glass Division by calling (610) 436-9727 for the replacement or the repair of the warranted product.
