If laminated 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 Stoddard’s promise to provide superior repair service to your entire vehicle, we ensure your damaged glass is returned to its pre-accident condition.

It’s easy to ignore chips or cracks in your vehicle’s glass. Damage from a small stone may seem like nothing to worry about at first, but these minor inconveniences can become much larger safety hazards. When a part of your vehicle—such as your windows, windshield, or rear window is not structurally sound, the safety of your vehicle may be compromised.

Stoddard understands the potential severity of broken glass. If your auto glass is damaged, Stoddard will assess the problem and employ expert judgment in making replacements or repairs.

Auto Glass Repair Process

Our technicians begin by cleaning the damaged area, discarding loose shards, and prepping 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 Stoddard. We can help ensure your vehicle’s safety and offer you peace of mind. Some auto glass is laminated, such as windshields and some side glass. Other pieces of auto glass are tempered, including most side glass and rear windows.

Stoddard technicians are experts in repairing and replacing laminated auto glass. If your auto glass can be repaired, Stoddard 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.
