If the chip or the crack in your windshield is repairable, our technicians will get started with the repairing process. At Magic Glass Repair, we employ innovative procedure and top quality materials to repair a broken windshield. Usually, it takes anywhere between 15-30 minutes to repair glass damage.
At first, the technician applies a spray to clean the window. When a windshield or auto glass cracks, it is bound to have at least some loose glass pieces and shards of fine particles of glass. All this debris needs to be fully removed before the actual repairing task can begin.
Once the window glass is squeaky clean, it becomes easy for the glass technician to carry out the repair work with utmost precision. In some cases, there may arise the need to access the air bubble. For this, the technician will need to use a small drill bit. Again, the tool needs to be used with extreme care or it can damage the internal vinyl layer of the windshield.
The next step is to inject a polymer resin into the chip or the crack. After the resin has been dropped in, the technician will make sure that no amount of air is trapped inside the chipped or cracked auto glass.
It is advisable for vehicle owners to remain patient as the technician completes one step after another. Some steps will require more time than others. After the chip or the crack has been filled with resin, the professional will apply a pit-filler to fill up the small divot left in the crack.
Again, it is to be ensured that there are no air bubbles inside the crack as it can ruin the entire repair work. Finally, the professional will remove the extra resin from the auto glass surface with the help of a razor blade and polish the repaired area to restore the aesthetics of the glass.
