WINDSHIELD REPAIR SAFETY
How do you know if you need a windshield repair or a windshield replacement?
At Lee and Cates, we can repair windshield chips the size of a quarter or smaller, and windshield cracks up to 3 inches long. If the damage to your automotive glass is greater than that, the windshield will need to be replaced.
Why is windshield repair or replacement important?
In the state of Florida, it’s illegal to drive with any damage that obscures your line of vision. If you have damage to your windshield that prevents you from seeing clearly, you’re putting yourself and drivers around you in danger.
Why shouldn’t I repair or replace the windshield myself?
There are plenty of do-it-yourself windshield repair kits available, but when it comes to windshield repair, it’s best to see a professional.
Kits like those found in home repair shops often contain glue that can make the existing damage worse — turning what was a routine windshield repair into a full replacement. While those kits may seem like a cheap alternative, the truth is that “cheap” isn’t worth your safety. Lee and Cates staff can evaluate the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action to get you back on the road safely and quickly.
