Size

As we offer windshield repairs to all in Modesto, CA, we see our fair share or damaged glass. The damage sustained must be within a certain size to allow us to repair rather than replace it, and this most typically involves smaller chips or cracks.

Chips in windshields cannot be much bigger than an inch in diameter, while cracks can be repaired as long as they are around 3 inches or smaller. Anything bigger will be difficult to perform repairs.

Shape

Providing windshield repairs for the many residents of Modesto and surrounding areas means we see a fair few cracked windshields. With so many variations to these cracks, we can actually identify them according to their shape.

For example, a crack chip can be used to describe a single chip that is roughly the size of a quarter, while a bullseye is a crack that is circular in shape. Most of these different shapes of cracks can be repaired, some easier than others, and as long as they do not get too large we can hopefully tackle them.

Location

Having completed countless windshield repairs over the years, we know just how important the location of the damage can be in our efforts to repair it. Quality repairs will leave some small and minor marks, such as slight discoloration.

While perfectly safe, it can prove troublesome if it disrupts the line of sight for the driver. We will take into account the location of each crack and chip in relation to the driver(s) behind the wheel.

Last, finding cracks or chips towards the edge of the windshield creates the potential for more safety concerns, and can often mean it’s not safe to conduct repairs.

We hope this helps any drivers that may be looking for windshield repairs in Modesto, CA!
