Low-Cost Windshield Repair by Reputable Technicians.
Time and cost are the number one barriers between drivers seeking windshield repair and getting safer cars back on the road. SIR Glass helps remove those barriers by offering affordable windshield repair with quick turnaround times. Many of our customers have even used our mobile services to have a windshield fixed at their workplace. This is especially convenient for the many drivers who commute to Beaverton every day.
How We Keep Repairs Affordable.
Our services are fairly priced. We give free estimates and regularly offer specials and discounts to our customers. Additionally, we work with all auto insurance companies so you don’t have to worry about prices out-of-pocket. Most insurance companies will pay for the cost of repairs as long as the deductible has been met. We’ve also learned how to shortcut their processes and get coverage verified within minutes. Fast service means that costs stay low. We have the tools and methods dialed-in so we can offer smooth, same-day repair services for the job.
A majority of repairs are performed incorrectly due to companies cutting corners. Our technicians are well-versed with the latest technologies and computerized equipment. They can handle a job the same day the customer makes the appointment. We take quality seriously because we take safety seriously. And proper repair prevents more expensive problems from developing later.
Professional Service From Certified Windshield Installers.
Our staff goes through a minimum of 3-months’ on-the-job training with an experienced technician. Their proficiency is evaluated by accuracy before speed. We also require classroom training and a written examination for every urethane manufacturer that we use. This includes understanding the technical details involved in proper adhesion of urethane to glass and other surfaces. Only proper techniques can ensure adhesion. The course also includes leak prevention training for specific urethane types, leak diagnosis and prognosis, and required primers and activators to be used on each windshield.
Windshield Crack and Chip Repair That Puts Your Safety First.
If the damage is not widespread enough to require a replacement, our repair services ensure that you can return to safe, legal driving. Though it’s possible to continue driving for years with a chipped windshield, it’s not advisable.
In Oregon, damage that obstructs the driver’s line of sight is against the law, and understandably so! A chipped windshield can weaken the entire panel if it’s deep enough. Secondly, a cracked windshield can obscure visibility not only of the road but of pedestrians and other vehicles.
How We Determine Whether Damage is Safe to Repair.
Repair services are available if:
- The crack is short and shallow enough to fix safely.
- The crack or chip is on the outside of the glass.
- The crack has not recently been exposed to water.
- The damage does not touch the edges of the windshield.
- The crack does not obscure the driver’s line of sight.
The cost of fixing a windshield rock chip or crack is always lower than a replacement. However, it’s important to consider safety when deciding to repair damage using industrial strength resin. Professional glass repair shops will be cautious by default and can consider a three-inch crack a good reason to replace the entire windshield, whereas some companies with lower standards will attempt to repair the crack with questionable methods.
Our installers know that auto glass repair is a serious matter. Even though the industry does not require it, all of our employees are certified and rigorously trained to look at details and diligently follow every step to prep, seal, and repair your auto glass. Our customers trust us to consistently make the right call. We will always offer the lowest price possible as long as it means we get you back on the road safely.
