Found a crack in your windscreen?
Has a dislodged stone been flung up when you were driving on the road, hitting and causing a crack in your windscreen, causing you to fret about needing a windscreen replacement? Or have you been caught in an accident, where you have not only suffered a dent to your bumper and found your airbags deployed, and your windscreen has also been damaged in the process? If the damage to your windscreen is small, we would be able to carry out a windscreen crack repair for you. Otherwise, if the damage is extensive, we would have to carry out a windscreen replacement.
When is windscreen crack repair possible
If you have a small windshield crack, you may want to have the windscreen crack repair carried out as soon as possible as this can otherwise develop into a large crack, and you may then wind up requiring windscreen replacement. An epoxy or filler can be used to fill up the crack in such a case.
If the windscreen crack repair is not carried out soon and the crack is deep enough, water can get past the top lamination of the glass. Given our frequently wet weather in Singapore, this can happen rather quickly. This can then cause a de-lamination of the glass and the membrane to fog up, potentially affecting your vision when you drive. There will also be an accumulation of dirt in the cracked area, as this cannot be properly cleaned up. Furthermore, the crack may enlarge to an extent beyond repair.
Are windscreen chips reparable
In the event the damage is a small chip, similar to the small crack, we would be able to just carry out a windshield chip repair. This is as long as the chip has not developed into a long crack, and that the chip is shallow enough.
During the windscreen crack repair or chip repair, it is essential that the surface is kept dry and clean for the epoxy to adhere properly. Our skilled mechanics will use a gentle cleaning agent and ensure it is thoroughly dry before carefully carrying out the filling into the cracked spot. This then needs to be left to dry, and the excess would be scrapped off after to complete the finishing.
When is windscreen replacement needed
If a windscreen replacement / windshield replacement is needed, with the damage to your windscreen being too large, we could assist you with this. We would first clean up any broken glass inside your vehicle, and remove the damaged windscreen. The windscreen construction is important, and we would be doing a quality installation for you, to ensure your utmost safety. The strength of the windscreen and the method of bonding the windscreen with the car body enhances the overall structural integrity of the car. For instance, should there be a car roll, the windscreen also provides support for the roof from crumpling in.
Other possible issues - windscreen scratch repair
Scratches can develop on your windshield with time, such as where dust and sand has accumulated on your windshield and you activate the wipers which sweep the particles across and cause scratching. We would be able to carry out a simple windshield scratch repair process to get rid of the scratches. We would first clean your windshield thoroughly, and use a polishing compound with our polish pad to smoothen out the scratches. This requires technique as the glass cannot get so hot in the process that it cracks, and the polishing compound needs to be kept moist. Once the scratches are removed, we would then clean off the residue and hand it over to you well and smooth.

My car aircon was not functioning and I was not sure what the cause was. I initially brought my car to the dealer workshop and was told the compressor is down.

Thumbs up! - Joel Tan, Bukit Batok
