Reader Question How does one repair a cracked windshield anyway? I bought some repair kit at the auto parts store the other day but it did not work like it was advertised.

Windshield Repair is a process that utilizes modern technology to repair damaged windshield glass. Unlike windshield replacement, Windshield Repair preserves the integrity of the factory seal on the windshield, making it a more cost effective solution for your customers.

Windshield repair is a process that combines modern technology and skill to fill a damaged area on a windshield with special clear adhesive resin.

The resin is then cured with an ultraviolet light. Windshield repair is much cheaper than windshield replacement. You’ll save money – $55.00 for the 1st rock chip and $30.00 for each additional rock chip on the same windshield. I DO NOT however recommend those $10 repair kits you can buy at your local auto parts store, there are professional version of the kit you can order online but they obviously cost much more.
