At Dent Tricks, we are pleased to offer same-day windshield chip repair on chips smaller than a quarter and small cracks less than the length of a dollar bill. Repairing rock chips, stars, bulls-eyes, and small cracks, helps restore clarity to your windshield and helps prevent the need for windshield replacement. The goal of repairing windshield damage is to stop the chip or crack from getting larger and spreading across the surface. Considering some windshield costs can exceed $2,000, and to replace them, you must break the seal and chance future wind or water leaks, repairing small damage should always be your first option.
The Science behind Windshield Chip Repair
There are three types of windshield chips: starbursts, bulls-eyes, and combinations. Which one do you have on your windshield?
- Starburst: chips in the shape of a star with spider-like legs spreading from each point on the star
- Bulls-eye: chips in the shape of a perfectly round circle without any cracks coming off of it
- Combination: chips with elements of both starburst and bulls-eye characteristics
Have you ever noticed that the cracks look black in color? This is the oxygen inside the glass forming the crack or chip. In order to restore the clarity of the windshield, Dent Tricks removes the oxygen inside the glass and replaces it with a clear acrylic resin. Our windshield repair technicians create a vacuum on the break and place the clear acrylic resin on top of the crack or chip. As we release the vacuum, the resin is pulled into the broken area, sealing it and preventing the chip or crack from getting larger.
