Windshield Crack Repair
There are a variety of reasons your windshield can get a crack in it. Especially during the winter, road conditions can become hazardous due to plowing and road construction. Plows and other machinery used to maintain the tough road conditions during the winter months can kick up loose debris like rocks and other small detritus, causing severe damage to your windshield.
The other issue with winter weather is that the cold climate can exacerbate any small cracks that may already exist on your windshield. With rain freezing and then unfreezing, that moisture can enter the small cracks in your windshield and expand, forcing the windshield crack to expand. Once the crack is larger than about a quarter, the chip can no longer be repaired effectively, requiring a replacement of the vehicle windshield.

Windshield Replacement Process
We provide mobile windshield replacement in Richmond, Virginia and all of its surrounding counties. What the mobile windshield repair process deals with includes us gathering information about the vehicle we’re working on first. The reason we ask for the car identification information by phone or online form is it helps us know what materials we need to bring to the site more quickly. Once we know what type of windshield glass we need, we’ll travel to the location of the disabled vehicle and begin the process.
First, we need to remove the old glass. We do this very carefully, making sure not to damage the frame of the windshield glass. The site then needs to be cleaned to provide a solid base for the new windshield adhesive to be applied. Any debris in this step can result in an ineffective seal. Luckily, our technicians are very skilled at preventing this problem, and RVA Glass provides a lifetime guarantee on the windshield replacement while the current owner owns the vehicle. After we have ensured the previous windshield was removed properly, we begin using our mobile windshield replacement arm to be able to maneuver the new windshield into place. Once we are sure of a snug fit, we apply adhesive and fit the new windshield in permanently. Ask our technicians when you see them if you are more curious about this entire process. They are very knowledgeable about all things professional windshield repair and auto glass repair related.
