The good news is that unless there is significant damage to the glass, a repair should be a quick and easy process with great results. The first thing to do is assess the state of the windshield after the impact from the rock chip. As long as the crack isn't too big, say no bigger than a quarter, it should be eligible for an efficient windshield repair job. Anything bigger, or where the damage has extended over time, may require a replacement. More on that later.
It is a good idea to go over the condition of your windshield regularly as part of your regular cleaning and maintenance regime. You might not notice a small impact while driving and then only see the scale of the damage when it is too late. Fast action can save your windshield and save you money. If you spot a small chip in the glass, don't disregard it as being insignificant - it soon won't be. Instead, get the ball rolling on getting it fixed.

There is no high-tech advanced treatment process here. It does take skill to get the best results, but the methods are actually quite straightforward. It is all about filling the crack with resin so that it masks the damage and strengthens the glass. Our mobile windshield repair Albuquerque team can come out with their trusted tools, inject resin into the crack, add a sealer for strength, and then let it cure under UV light. That curing process hardens the resin so that it reinforces the cracked area, while also making it clear enough not to obscure your vision.
Technicians can do this across all eligible cracks until the glass appears to be as good as new once again. Larger bullet-hole style dents are soon refilled and smoothed out and those spidery chips quickly bond together and disappear.
Yes. This is a highly effective way to repair windshield chips in Albuquerque. The technique does a great job at strengthening the glass to the point where you can get back on the road without concerns. Typically, we would say that repairs are 95% effective in preventing further issues. We don't want to lie and say there is a guaranteed 100% success rate as all cracks are unique and environmental and time-based factors can come into play. But, 95% is still a good rate and shows that repairs are worth a shot.
This is a common question from those wary about getting New Mexico windshield repair. A concern here is that the resin filler will be noticeable due to a difference in color or spots where the old crack shows through. This shouldn't be the case at all when you hire a professional team of local rock chip repair specialists. The right materials and curing techniques go a long way. There is no risk of turning your car's screen into a Jackson Pollock painting - unless you do this yourself and go overboard with an inferior resin.
We can't lie to you here. There are kits out there that let you carry out a form of this windscreen repair yourself. However, we don't recommend a DIY windscreen repair job. We aren't just saying that because we want people to pay us for the work instead. We know that you can only get a quality finish when you have the right tools and experience.
On your own, you might not end up with the transparency and full repair of a professional job because of the quality of the materials and curing process. You may also miss additional cracks that a trained eye can spot for you. A bad job is a waste of money as you pay out for the DIY rock chip repair kit, and then pay out again for a replacement windshield to deal with the botched job. Even if you think it can't be that hard to get right, you may as well take advantage of the convenience of a skilled New Mexico windshield repair team.
