Pros and Cons of a DIY Auto Glass Repair, Part 3

Welcome back to the final installment of our short blog series. In parts one and two, we compared the pros and cons of repairing a damaged windshield using a DIY auto glass repair kit that can be purchased online or at any auto parts store. For many, a windshield repair kit is an affordable and convenient way to get a vehicle roadworthy while also saving time. On the other hand, a DIY repair kit is not always the most effective repair method when you want lasting results that you can get from an expert windshield repair with Denver Mobile Auto Glass. Let’s look at a few more of the pros and cons you should consider when deciding which windshield repair method is best for you. You may also want to read a recent blog post that highlights the benefits of our mobile auto glass repair and windshield replacement services in the Denver area that make repairs that much easier and convenient.

Pros of Using a DIY Windshield Repair Kit

A Quick Fix

If you have a DIY kit already on hand when you notice a chip in your windshield, you can perform an at-home repair right away without having to call and schedule an appointment. Even if the repair kit is not of high quality (and nowhere near the quality of getting an expert repair), your vehicle would at least be roadworthy.  

Cons of Using a DIY Auto Glass Repair Kit

Insurance Companies Won’t Reimburse

Before you embark on a DIY repair that you think may save you some pennies, review your insurance policy first. Most insurance companies either completely reimburse for a windshield replacement or will at least cover a chip or crack repair; however, they won’t cover a DIY auto glass repair. Just think, when you have your windshield repaired professionally, you’re not only getting quality service, you may also be able to get a new windshield for free!

No Guarantee

There are no quality guarantees when you use an at-home glass repair kit. On the other hand, when you have your auto glass repaired by our qualified windshield experts, we offer a workmanship guarantee backed by our high-quality standards on all our auto glass services.
