Does Safelite repair long cracks in the windshield?

We will repair cracks that are the size of a dollar bill or smaller. Anything larger will require a windshield replacement.

How does the auto glass repair process work?

Performing a windshield repair involves cleaning and treating the damage with specially designed tools and resins. In many cases, the damage can be repaired by one of our trained technicians in less than 30 minutes.

Can you guarantee that a chip or crack in my windshield that can be repaired will not become larger during the repair process?

No. In some cases, through no fault of the repair technician, the attempt to repair a windshield can result in the chip or crack becoming larger. However, we can guarantee that upon completion of a successful repair, the chip or crack will not crack further and that the repair will pass any state vehicle inspection, or we will credit the cost of the repair toward a replacement.

In the very rare event that this occurs, we will credit the cost of the repair either toward a new windshield or, in the event of insurance work, back to the insurance company. Read our windshield repair limited warranty for more details.

Can you guarantee that the chip or crack will be invisible after the windshield repair has been completed?

No. A windshield chip or crack repair is used to prevent further damage to your glass and to restore the structural integrity of the vehicle. While each incident of damage is unique, with most successful repairs, a slight blemish or imperfection where the impact occurred is normal. In most cases, you should expect the cosmetic appearance of the repair to show some improvement as compared to the damage prior to the repair.
