View after receiving windshield repair in Detroit.

A chip or crack on your windshield is understandably alarming. But if you have at least a general understanding of the repairs that come next, it’s not so unsettling. And it’s a straightforward problem to fix.

Simbol Auto Glass performs quality repairs with the most durable bonding agents and we’d like to share some information that could put you at ease.

Here are five questions vehicle owners typically ask when looking to find windshield repair in Detroit. We’ve also included the answers so you’re readier for your repair after reading.

#1: How do I know if I need a repair or replacement?

Whether you need a repair or replacement depends on the size of the chip or crack and its depth. If it’s smaller than a quarter, it’s commonly nothing a repair can’t fix. But anything of greater width and some level of depth most likely needs a replacement.

It’s important to remember that, with time, small rock chips can develop into cracks that get longer and deeper.

Other factors are based more on your type of car. An ordinary windshield may have a chip that’s small enough for a repair, but equivalent damage may require replacement for a windshield with electronics.

#2: Is it safe to drive my car to the auto glass repair shop?

Modern windshields have two layers of glass and a layer of film in the middle, which makes them highly durable. The chances of your windscreen collapsing are very rare.

In any case, Simbol Auto Glass provides mobile windshield repair in Detroit. Whether you’re not comfortable driving with damaged glass or you’re just busy, we can get to you.

#3: Do auto glass shops accept insurance?

This varies from shop to shop, but Simbol Auto Glass certainly accepts insurance! Depending on your auto insurance, your mild chip repair can be entirely free. Yes, you might have your deductible waived if your policy applies.

And, for more severe repairs, we are proud to offer affordability like nowhere else!

#4: How long does windshield repair take?

Repairing a small chip can take as little as half an hour. Extensive damage takes longer, but not considerably. In the case of a replacement, you have to wait at least an hour for the adhesive to bond.

A mobile repair shop such as ours is a solution if you’re short on time.

#5: What should I look for to make sure of a terrific job?

One way to make sure you’ll get a good repair is to look into the shop offering it. Find out how long they’ve been around and previous customers’ experiences with them. It’s also worthwhile to ask about any guarantees and the materials they use.

A windshield from Simbol Auto Glass always has a lifetime warranty against leaks. We also use the highest quality auto glass and bonding agents, and we’ve been servicing thousands of vehicles each month for years.
