Do I need an appointment?
We recommend appointments for all services so that we can accommodate your schedule. If you call ahead, we will contact your insurance company to make sure that the repair or replacement will be covered.
Do you offer a guarantee or warranty?
Mr. Auto Glass offers a lifetime workmanship warranty that covers manufacturing defects and our labor for as long as you own or lease the vehicle. Ask for a full copy of our warranty.
Should I repair a crack even if it’s not in my line of sight?
Small cracks and rock chips expand quickly. If you catch the problem early, we can usually repair it. Also, cracks weaken the glass and create safety hazards if you’re involved in an accident.
Do you install windshields that are compatible with my rain-sensing wipers or lane departure warning sensors?
Your Mr. Auto Glass technician can install a compatible windshield at your location or at our shop. We work with glass suppliers to source OEM-quality windshields that are compatible with rain-sensing wipers and crash avoidance systems.
How is a window or windshield repair performed?
We fill cracks and chips with ultra-strong polymer resins. First, our technicians use carbide drill bits to create a clean opening. This improves adhesion so that your windshield repair lasts longer. The technician injects resin and heats the glass so that the product reaches all damaged areas. Then, the resin is cured using UV lamps. Vacuum pressure is applied throughout the repair process to remove air bubbles and create a stronger bond.
How long will it take to repair my windshield?
We complete windshield repairs in 40 minutes or less. Most sealants are fully cured after an hour.
