WINDSCREEN REPAIRS

How does a windscreen chip repair work?

The windscreen repair procedure starts with cleaning the chip of any glass fragmentation; this gives a clean area that the resin can adhere to.

Once the area is clean, we remove any trapped air from the windscreen chip using a vacuum type device. A liquid acrylic resin is then injected into the damaged glass.

The resin is then cured using an ultra violet lamp, this can take a few minutes. After this procedure the resin dries to a substance stronger than the glass itself, this restores the strength to the damaged glass.

 

The last step is to remove any excess resin from the windscreen, and polish the repair to ensure the surface is smooth. The chip repair is now complete.

The cost of a windscreen chip repair will depend on whether your vehicle insurance provides glass damage cover.

TESTIMONIALS

I had a windscreen chip on my Corsa, however I wasn’t sure if the damage was repairable. I phoned AVG Windscreens who offered me great advice as to what my options were and whether they could repair my windscreen chip. Within a couple of hours one of their technicians came out and repaired my windscreen, although I forgot to ask them a price at the time the cost was very reasonable. Thanks Again !!

I had windscreen repairs done on my Mercedes back in December, I found them very courteous and professional. After the windscreen repair had been done, the damage had almost disappeared. The job was done quickly and efficiently and the technician took time to explain to me that the repair would restore my windscreen back to its original strength.
