Does Windshield Repair Work?
Auto glass repair works and can save you money when you purchase a complete installation!
Many people believe that car window glass replacement and repair is just a way windshield repair companies make money off of your insurance company. Some windshield repair companies use a strange tool that supposedly repairs small chips and cracks in your windshield. They then charge 50 dollars for a mere two minutes of work and the windshield will continue to crack and chip. This is what causes many people to assume that windshield repair companies are untrustworthy and unreliable. The truth is that there are many reputable windshield repair companies that can and will save you money.
There are also windshield repair companies and technicians that will try to convince you to replace your windshield because there is a chip in your front windshield when the chip is nothing more than a surface pit. In the windshield repair industry these types of companies are called "pit chasers" and give reliable windshield repair companies a bad reputation. Pit chasers search for any surface pit on your windshield and charge you to repair it even though it will never crack any further without a repair. Remember, if you cannot see a black air pocket in the damaged area then it is more than likely that it doesn't need to be repaired. This site does not allow pit chasers to be a part of our network. We pride ourselves in having reputable and reliable companies on the site that want to help people.
“Glass claim harvesters” have a similar practice to “pit chasers” in that they try to convince you to purchase services you do not need. Professional glass claim harvesters can be found in areas where there are no deductibles for complete windshield replacements. Harvesters will approach vehicle owners, inspect their front windshields and offer to fix or replace them for free whether or not the glass is damaged. A glass claim harvester will then convince you that your windshield is sandblasted and needs to be replaced or if they find a chip, they will start the windshield repair process and apply too much pressure. This will cause the chip to crack and the windshield will be ruined. Now the customer has no choice but purchase a complete windshield replacement. By changing the invoice from a windshield repair invoice to a complete windshield replacement invoice ultimately increases the profits of the shop filing the claim and performing the work.
By asking for a referral from one of the many companies listed on the website, you can learn if your car window glass replacement or repair was done by a reputable company or repair shop. There are many reviews to read and customers willing to talk to you about their experience with windshield repair companies found on our site if you would like more information on the company. You are also more than welcomed to stop by and watch a glass repair being performed on a vehicle so you can see the difference with your own eyes at any of the companies posted on our website. If you are still unsure, I would also recommend that your insurance agent take a look at the windshield and help decide whether you need a repair or not.
