Chip Repair

Our commitment to you – we’ll attempt to repair before replacing your glass!

Lifetime Warranty

Every single one of our repair and replacements come with a lifetime warranty protecting you against defective glass or faulty installation. What that means to you is that you can rest easy knowing that if we made a mistake, we will own up to it and get it fixed as soon as possible.

Did the chip repair fail? Yikes, that doesn’t happen often! Let’s use the money paid to us for the repair towards a new windshield or your deductible, whichever is less.

Stress cracking or leaking on your windshield? Let’s hope not! We will still stand by our lifetime warranty.

Remember: At Zen, we strive to continuously improve, so you can guarantee we are always looking for ways to eliminate the stress and worry of broken glass.

Size and Shape Matter

Chips, dings and small cracks can sometimes be repaired. Depending on the location and the extent of the damage, it is sometimes recommended to replace the glass rather than repair it. However, we always attempt a repair before replacing your windshield.

Although a slight blemish will remain as a scar of the damage done to your windshield, this repair procedure does help to maintain the structural integrity of your glass.

The Correct Tools Make All The Difference

When a repair is made on your windshield, a variety of tools are employed to make the work is done correctly. First, a drill is used to smooth surface and interior of the crack or chip. Next, a tool called a “bridge” is used to inject an acrylic-based resin into the damaged area. Once the resin has taken the place of any air inside the crack, a special UV light is used to cure the resin and help it to bond to the glass. Usually, the bridge is still used to help “cure under pressure,” a process that forces the resin to stay where it is while it hardens under the UV light.

Never Rush

After the resin is cured, a pit resin is applied to the initial hole, and a mylar strip is placed over this and the curing process begins again! Once hardened, the excess resin is scraped off with a razor blade and a polish is applied to your windshield, making it look almost as good as new!
