Windshield Repair & Replacement
In many accidents, windshields can be cracked, broken, or shattered making them unsafe. Mundy’s Collision Center I-CAR Gold Class certified technicians will restore or replace your windshield to meet the standards set by your vehicle’s manufacturer.
A crack in the windshield can directly impact the safety of your vehicle and could potentially impair your driving ability. Our technicians are trained and certified to determine the best solution and repair option for your vehicle.
A windshield is not a single unit, but actually two sheets of glass held together by an inner layer of polyvinyl butyrate. If the windshield gets damaged, the polyvinyl butyrate holds the glass in place, which is why it does not immediately shatter like back windows or even side mirrors do.
A cracked or broken windshield can cause serious safety risks. It can blur the driver’s vision, may cause a deploying airbag to malfunction, or even lead to greater injury during a collision. A windshield is an important part of the vehicle’s structure and keeps passengers safe during a collision by preventing a passenger from being thrown from the vehicle if they’re not wearing a seatbelt.
Auto Glass Repair
If any glass on your vehicle is cracked, chipped, or shattered during a collision, repairing or replacing the damage is vital for the safety of you and your passengers. As part of Mundy’s Collision Center promise to provide superior repair service to your entire vehicle, we ensure your damaged glass is returned to its pre-accident condition.
When your windows, windshield, or rear window are not structurally sound, the safety of your vehicle may be compromised. Don’t ignore those chips or cracks in your vehicle’s glass. Minor damage can become a larger safety hazard if not taken care of immediately.
Mundy’s understands the potential severity of broken glass. If your auto glass is damaged, we will assess the problem and use our expert judgment in making replacements or repairs.
The Repair Process
If your auto glass can be repaired, Mundy’s typically restores broken glass by filling it with optically matched resin, which removes the air from the cracks. This technique will both prevent the break from spreading further and improve the overall appearance of the glass itself. While some auto glass is laminated, such as windshields and some side glass, other pieces are tempered, including most side glass and rear windows.
Our technicians begin by cleaning the damaged area, discarding loose shards in order to prepare the area for the resin to mend any chipped glass. The damaged area is placed under a vacuum to remove any air trapped inside the chip. Then a resin is injected into the damaged area, with the repair staying on the top layer of glass. Once the mending process is complete, the repaired surface is left to solidify under a UV light to seal the glass repair into place.
When your auto glass is cracked or shattered and needs to be skillfully repaired, bring your vehicle to the experts at Mundy’s Collision Center.
