Chevrolet of Wasilla can help. Give us a call at (844) 361-3006 and ask us any questions you might have.
Is it a Large Crack or a Small Scratch?
In the event your window has a chip that looks just like a bull's-eye, a B.B. chip or a flowered chip, then an epoxy resin could possibly be a simple fast solution to save you money, which may either be completed by a repair technician or by yourself, at your house, with a window repair kit.
If you can run your fingernail over the crack and it doesn't get caught up, and when the chip is less than 1-inch, then a lower viscosity window resin can be employed in the repair process, which means if you're comfortable repairing your windshield yourself, an at home repair kit will be enough.
Should you have spider web cracks or any surface damage larger than an inch, you'll most likely need to replace your entire window to prevent the glass from splintering more. If you're uncertain of your windshield repair needs, call Chevrolet of Wasilla at (844) 361-3006 and schedule an appointment to have our certified Chevrolet mechanics take a look.
What exactly is The Difference Between Epoxy Windshield Repair and Auto Glass Replacement Solutions?
Epoxy is a liquid bonding agent that can seal cracks on your windshield. There are a selection of epoxies, ranging from 20 to 2400 cps - a way of measuring viscosity. Epoxy resin solutions are non-permanent solutions and can leave behind subtle blemishes on your windshield. Auto glass replacement indicates the complete replacement of your windshield. Full window replacement is more expensive than epoxy fixes due to labor costs and the price of an entirely new, more sturdy, piece of glass.
For the Wasilla Self-Repairer - Repair with Caution
It's suggested not to begin to fix your windshield yourself if you do not possess a lot of knowledge working with the tools associated with changing windows or administering epoxy. The reason for caution is you want to avoid creating any more harm to your windshield or to yourself, and you want to ensure the repair method you choose is the correct fix.
Resins are graded in relation to viscosity. Lower viscosity - the kind usually present in at home repair kits - signifies the epoxy is thinner while higher viscosity resins possess a thicker, commercial-grade epoxy. Commercial-grade epoxy resins and the tools needed to administer the resins typically are not sold in retail stores. At home windshield repair kits usually really do not offer commercial quality epoxy resins, which means that retailer epoxy resins typically have a limited repair success.
