Can I Have My Glass Replaced at My Home or Office? Do I Need to Wait for the Repair?
At Auto Glass Solutions, we’re dedicated to making life easy for you. If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to your home or work, pick up your car, perform repairs, and bring it back to you. If you choose to bring your vehicle to us, you may wait for repairs in our comfortable lounge with complimentary internet access.
Is it Important to Fix a Crack or Ding in Your Windshield Right Away?
Yes. It is extremely important to fix cracks or chips in the windshield as soon as possible. While these kinds of issues may seem small, hitting a pothole or even getting hit by a small rock or stone can lead to big cracks. Larger cracks can compromise the structural integrity of your windshield and impede visibility. Also, it’s far cheaper to fix a chip than to replace a windshield.
How Long Does a Windshield Repair Take?
A standard windshield repair job takes about one hour.
Will You Reattach My Rearview Mirror?
If we replace your windshield, we will reattach your rearview mirror to your new windshield after installation.
What Makes Auto Glass Different From Other Glass?
The glass on your windshield is very different from other glass in your car. Your windshield is made of laminated safety glass that is designed to provide a protective experience in a collision. It is comprised of two layers of glass with a thin layer of vinyl between them, sealed together with heat and pressure in an autoclave oven. When safety glass is struck, it breaks but does not shatter, protecting the driver from facing a spray of glass shards. Therefore, windshields can be repaired; damage from a rock, for example, only affects the outer layer. The windows throughout the rest of your car are likely made from tempered glass to reduce noise pollution and prevent unwanted intrusions.
Do You Offer Free Estimates?

How Do I Know if My Windshield Needs to Be Repaired or Replaced?
Not every rock chip or cracked windshield can be repaired. Multiple factors determine whether a repair or replacement is the best option.
