Do it yourself kits DIY with windshield repair… Please don’t do it to your wallet
Hello everyone, this is Jason from Windshield Wonder LLC, I’m here to talk about do it yourself kits or also known as DIY windshield repair kits and headlight restoration kits. First we are going to look at DIY windshield repair kits. The problem with these kits are that they don’t give you all the tools necessary to complete the job to the correct specifications.
When doing a windshield repair one must have a mirror to see if the resin is flowing out to the ends of the crack legs and to check the amount of air still inside the damage. Also one must have a probe to clean out any debris in the impact point to aid the flow of resin and produce the best possible cosmetic look of a windshield repair. The probe is also used to see if there is any water inside the damaged area as well as to see if there are any tight micro fractures that can’t be seen without focused pressure to the damaged area. And last but not least a DIY kit does not give you any of the wisdom and experience to know and understand the complex nature of broken glass.
If you use one of these DIY kits you most likely will not fill the damage correctly, and when the resin is cured it will block off most future attempts to repair the windshield damage by a professional windshield repairman. This situation will most likely cause the damage to your windshield to spread out over time causing the need for a costly windshield replacement.
In short go with a professional windshield repair company and have the job done right the first time. If you are trying to save money, a professional windshield repair shop may be able to get you a free windshield repair through your comprehensive auto insurance policy.
