Fixing a cracked windshield is something that should not be taken lightly – you and your passengers’ safety depend on it. At 4MY AUTO, we believe in saving you time and money in everything that we do and will first try to repair your windshield instead of replacing it. Once your appointment is made, we also take care of managing the entire process of your insurance claim. We repair or replace any type of glass on any make and model, at our location or yours!
If you’ve been driving around with a stone chip or a hairline crack in your windshield, are you trying to avoid dealing with it? Let the technicians at 4MY AUTO let you know if that chip or crack means a windshield repair or a windshield replacement at our Ottawa shop.
Since your windshield is a vital safety feature on your vehicle, any chip or crack that can spread poses a risk. If you have a front-end collision, an intact windshield contributes 45% of the structural integrity of your vehicle’s cabin. If your vehicle rolls over, the windshield is responsible for 60% of your protection. For these reasons, the Auto Glass Safety Council recommends that you have any damage to your windshield inspected as soon as you can.
Our auto glass technicians in Ottawa can diagnose how serious your chip or crack is according to these important factors: the size, type, depth, location and age of the damage. This means that if you catch a shallow chip under two inches in diameter, a repair should do the job. A large chip with cracks radiating from it most likely will require auto glass replacement.
When in doubt, depend on 4MY AUTO for auto glass inspections, repairs and replacement. Come in or call for auto glass services in the Ottawa area.
