7: What does the windshield repair process involve?
A: Though the basics remain the same, the actual steps of the windshield repair process may vary from one company to another. At Magic Glass Repair, we follow a well-defined and highly effective step-by-step process to repair minor chips and cracks in the windshield of a vehicle.
At first, the technician conducts a thorough inspection of the damage. Auto glass windshield damages come in all shapes and sizes. So, it is crucial to determine the type and extent of the damage in a proper manner. After this, the technician decides what type of repair will be ideal and then the technician gets ready to carry out the actual repair work. The area around the damage is then cleaned while keeping the hood of the car covered. Next, the technician vacuums the air from the damaged windshield in order to ensure a successful repair. Now, it is time to apply the glass healer resin in a way that it reaches into every single part of the chip or the crack. Using UV light, the technician cures the auto glass resin.
Once the glass healer resin solidifies, the technician performs one more step to get rid of the surplus resin and buffs and polishes the area to a smooth finish. That is all it takes to repair a broken windshield.
