Will I be able to see the damage after you repair my windshield?

One question frequently asked of us is if you will be able to see the damage after we repair your windshield. The answer is that while the damage will still technically be visible after a repair, it will be virtually invisible due to the materials and methods we use.

At Carolina Windshield Centers, we use our Clarity® Windshield Repair Resin on all windshield repairs. This high-quality resin was designed to match the refractive index of the glass in which it is injected. Not only does this make for the safest windshield repair possible, but it also makes for the clearest repair possible. This is what gives our repair resin the name “Clarity”. It guarantees the safest and most clear repair possible, so that you can see through your front windshield completely uninhibited.

Additionally, the Clarity® Windshield Repair Resin has a viscosity close to that of water. This means that the resin can be inserted into small chips and cracks while making a complete seal. The complete fill makes it so that the damage is nearly invisible after the repair is complete.

Carolina Windshield Centers is a leading auto glass repair shop. For information about our windshield repair services and Clarity® Windshield Repair Resin,contact our Charlotte, NC auto glass shop at (800) 900-1505. 

Spring Driving Tips

Each season brings their own unique challenges to driving. In the springtime, worn out roads and heavy rains cause difficulties for the driver. Keep your eyes peeled and follow these tips to stay safe on the road this spring:

  • Be aware that more people will be on the road. Nicer weather brings out motorcyclists, skateboarders, cyclists, and other recreational vehicles. Also, more people travel in nice weather, so there are more drivers in general on the road.
  • Spring rains make for slick driving conditions. Wet pavement causes decreased handling abilities and increased slowdown time. Prepare to stop earlier than normal when driving in these conditions.
  • Avoid driving into large puddles. Puddles can cause you to hydroplane and lose control of the automobile. Driving into a very deep puddle can also cause the engine to seize as water can get sucked into the engine.
  • Keep an eye out for wild life emerging from hibernation. Many animals are found traveling across streets during this time of the year. Heed the warning if you see any warning signs about animal crossings.
  • The spring season brings misty and foggy conditions. Drive slowly in these conditions because your vision is limited.

As we enjoy the warmer weather around this time of the year, stay aware of the unique driving conditions found in the spring season.

How Long does a Windshield Repair Take?

Our windshield repair process is one of the  fastest in the industry. Getting your windshield repaired is one of the best things you can do for your auto glass. Not everyone has the opportunity to have their auto glass repaired before the damage becomes too severe. Take advantage of minor windshield damage by getting your windshield repaired: it is our fastest service.

A windshield repair at Carolina Windshield Centers takes about 20 minutes in total. One of our windshield repair specialists will use our Clarity Windshield Repair Resin, heated up to 180 degrees, to inject into the point of damage. After filling the damage, the repair resin cures in about one minute when exposed to ultra-violet light. This restores the windshield to its original strength, and the damage will be virtually invisible.

Our windshield repair resin is the fastest-curing resin available. This allows us to have you driving away safe in 20 minutes.
