If you just got a chip or crack in your windshield and you are thinking of buying a DIY windshield repair kit, don't just reach for that kit. As a professional windshield repair business. We often receive windshield repair calls as a part of our job to inspect damages. Sadly, many of the rock chips we inspected have already been repaired but they failed, and the damage is left with ugly air pockets and spreading which can compromise your windshield safety.
One might believe that incompetent windshield repair technicians cause these ruined windshields to be poorly repaired, but this is not always the case. The car owners often cause these failed repairs themselves using one of those kits that you can buy online and in auto parts stores.
We hate to tell someone we can't do a re-repair because the repair failed. When you inject the cheap water down resin into the windshield breaks and cure it it's all over.
DIY windshield repair can't compare to professional windshield repair technicians, we have the right tools and expertise to get the job done right the first time. Please do not inject weak resin into windshield edge cracks or star breaks, instead call a trained professional because they have the crack expansion tools to flex open and drill into the damage for a successful repair.
The poor repair left ugly air pockets which can compromise your windshield safety.
