Professional Windshield Repair: Types Of Windshield Damage
There are several different types of windshield damage that can result in: chips, stone crack, edge crack or aka long crack, bullseye, star-break, and combination cracks. Each type of repair at this level of windshield damage can only be truly repaired using the professional grade resins and tools to safely and securely fix a windshield to 100%. Let’s look at some of the more advanced cracks you will be facing.
Long Crack Repair are cracks that are over 6 inches and easily up to 14 inches or more. These and 90% of most windshields that need professional repair are a result of an edge crack. Windshields made from the manufacturer have a great amount of stress to them and when that bond is broken from stones long cracks usually result from the impact. There are special long crack repair resins that need to be used in order to make sure that bond is stronger than what it was from the manufacturer. The long crack repair kits we sell are professional as they have all the complete tools from the crack master tool series and feature our wonder bar, uv light and much more.>> Long Crack Windshield Repair <<
Pit Crack Repair are the impact chip of breaks in the windshield that require a professional touch and professional tool set in order to repair. Pit in a windshield are deep and need to be filled with thick and industrial strength resin. Pits can be repaired with standard repair resins when tiny that can hold the bond during climate changes that take place from cold to hot and vice versa. Also there are several compression tools that involve o-rings in order to get this repair done correctly. Leave this for professionals and or a professional repair kit.>> Pit Chip Windshield Repair <<
Combination Cracks, these are a bullseye very tiny star cracks. D-I-Y kits will not work with these type of repairs. What might seem like a chip to an untrained individual might not be so simple, more often, purchasing a simple or cheap windshield crack repair kit will leave you with no results; as the chip will still be a weak spot and still very visible within the windshield. Although combination cracks are common they are an advanced type of repair to completely restore; where can have a combination of drilling, tapping and using a combination of windshield repair resin to make the repair.>> Combination Crack Windshield Repair <<
The Star-Break Crack is one type of windshield break that you will see quite often. Because of the legs that are on a star burst crack, drilling is sometimes required to gain acess to all the legs and this requires practice. Luckily Ultra Bond invented the tool called The Star Leg Flexor, that opens the cracks to help you repair this common windshield break>> Star-Break Crack Windshield Repair <<
Half Moon Chip
The half moon chip break is very common and similar to the bullseye break except it does not make a full circle. The full circle bullseye break does not occur as much anymore due to the thinner windshield glass, this was a chip break that occurred on vehicles that had really heavy windshields. This was back in the 60s and 70s. Now the partial bullseye is very common because it takes less force to fracture modern windshields.>> Half Moon Chip Windshield Repair <<
The bullseye chip break was a common break that you will still run into with a windshield. However as mentioned with the half moon chip break, the bullseye chip is an older type of windshield break. Cars made from the 50s, 60s, and 70s had really heavy windshields and they would break differently. However, this is a break that you could still run into.>> Bullseye Chip Windshield Repair <<
