There are many kinds of windshield damage can be easily repaired on location by a mobile Cleveland auto glass shop. And, for many types of windshield damage we will come to your location in Cleveland to give you a quote and do the repair.
The type of damage, its size, how deep it is (how big the rock was), and a location in the center of windshield, and hours required to do the job are all important factors in determining if windshield repair is possible on location is possible or if you need to schedule glass services at our shop location. Contact us online to start the process.
To a degree, local Cleveland and Ohio state laws will determine mobile service we are allowed to offer to fix auto windshield damage for a customer. And, really severe damage that extends beyond six inches, damage that goes beyond 14 inches, and center damage that goes to the end are likely to threaten its strength and not be amenable to a replacement service.
Virtually all other damage is fixable when you schedule at our location with our service professionals. As a general rule, we can safely and efficiently provide repair services for chips and cracks if the chips are no wider than six inches and the damage is no longer than 14 inches. And, our prices for the entire job are always affordable based on the hour count needed to do the task and a difficulty involved.
Repairable auto windshield damage breaks down into two types, cracks and chips. This happens exactly at the point of impact by a stone or other road debris.
Star breaks are a cluster of short damage radiating out from the point of impact. Bulls-eye breaks are circular while a partial bulls-eye looks more like a half moon. A crack and chip is typically less than an inch across and has a piece of glass missing as well as a crack. A pit or gouge is when there is virtually no crack but part of the glass in one location is missing. A crack will run well beyond the point of impact for several inches or even the width of the windshield. They are usually horizontal and can be quite straight or run in a wavy line.
Even long areas of damage in an auto windshield are sometimes repairable by a qualified auto glass service. Damage in several locations usually means a replacement experience and higher prices.
Pits, star-shaped breakage, crack-chips, and linear crevices are all repairable. And, when you simply choose to repair your windshield, you avoid complications of replacement, like not having the new windshield bond properly or having to wait a day for the bonding services to be complete. It is important to have a skilled professional glass technician do your entire mobile windshield repair as you only want to provide services that will not leave you with a weakened windshield. And, with a high quality auto glass mobile service, like GlazeGeeks in Cleveland, you will be able to make some expert repairs that a less skilled technician and services could not make! And, it will not take us hours to do the job! It fact, it typically will not take an hour.
Some auto windshield damages are very difficult to repair, or cannot be repaired:
To repair a windshield crack or chip, we use a special tool called a vacuum injection pump. We inject a clear resin into the crack and then “cure” the resin with a UV light. With this process, your entire windshield has normal strength again with only a 5% to 10% loss of clarity. We provide these in-shop and mobile professional service promptly, efficiently, affordably, and on location in Cleveland.
Let’s say that your auto insurance will cover all of the costs of on location or in shop services for repairing or replacing the auto glass in your windshield. Why wouldn’t you just replace the auto windshield if you have small crack? There are a couple of good reasons to avoid replacement.
When you replace your windshield you will be without your car for a while. This is because the replacement service takes longer than mobile windshield repair or other auto glass work on your car. And, the replacement process needs to follow “Safe Drive Away Time.” That is, the replaced windshield needs to bond or cure in order to be safe in case of a crash. Because your safety in the event of a collision is take stake, we don’t cut corners with our quality auto glass service at GlazeGeeks. Your car stays on location until the job is completely done on schedule.
But, if you just have a small center crack, we can fix that quickly either in our shop or by coming to you and providing professional mobile services at your location at a low price. The only issues with auto windshield repair are fixing the damage, maintaining the integrity of the glass, and making sure that your vision when driving is unrestricted. Because the windshield stays in place, there is no mandatory waiting involved and we can do these auto glass services rather quickly.
The best answer is, have your windshield fixed right away. If you wait to get quality professional service, contaminants get into the crack. If they cannot be easily removed, the adhesive will not work well and you may be left with a center visual defect that makes it necessary to replace your windshield. Auto insurance commonly covers all of the glass service costs, so don’t wait. And, if your insurance does not cover the damage, having repairs done on a small crack or chip instead of waiting while the crack extends, will save you having to pay for replacement services! Although we do both mobile repair and replacement service, we prefer to repair the auto glass windshield before it needs to be replaced.
The price of services for having a windshield repaired will vary according to the type of glass repair service needed. When your windshield is chipped or badly broken the price of repair or replacement service can run anywhere from $20 to $325. The type of vehicle you have makes a difference as well as to whether you are repairing or replacing a windshield or a back window. No matter what sort of damage you have, it is best to have it dealt with by an expert auto glass repair mobile service that is qualified for these jobs. Only your windshield damage can be repaired because it is laminated glass. Any of the others will need to be replaced.
Simple chips are repairable in the $20 to $60 range. High quality mobile service in Cleveland is typically about $55. The larger the crack, the more the repair service will cost and the hour count will be larger.
Getting the service done quickly and done right is worth money.

The auto glass question becomes more acute if you started with a little crack and now there is a crack advancing outward.
When you review your policy, you will see that windshield insurance is almost always included in comprehensive auto insurance coverage. And, most often, there is no deductible to be paid because the insurance company considers it a safety hazard for your auto, and a risk to them if you drive around with a damaged auto windshield and your auto glass issue causes an accident! Thus windshield insurance covers the prices of windshield technician repair service or replacement of your auto glass, whichever is required.

A natural occurrence as a car ages is the accumulation of tiny defects on the windshield caused by dust, sand, and tiny debris off the road. This may distort your vision but does not affect the integrity of our windshield. Because this is considered an “effect of aging” of your, insurance will not cover installation service.
When your windshield is damaged by debris on the highway, or in an accident, windshield insurance generally covers glass repair or replacement service. If the glass is broken due to vandalism or for other reasons, you may need to look to your home owner’s policy or pay out of pocket and by the hour for this service.
