Chip off the Ole’ Windscreen

Windscreen Repair and Replacement

We provide windscreen repair and replacement for all car makes and models, including vintage and imported vehicles. We first determine whether a repair or replacement is required, which depends on the damage to the vehicle. We can repair chips when they are smaller than a 5-cent piece in the central vision area. To repair chips, we inject a clear resin to fill the space made by the chip. This gives it structural integrity and prevents it from cracking further. We then cure the resin using ultraviolet light, which strengthens the bond and stops the crack from breaking further. This method only works on layered glass, such as the glass found in windshields. The chip will still be slightly visible, but safe from further damage.


Here is how we replace windows in cars:

  1. We first remove the trim around both the inside and outside perimeter of the windscreen. We also remove the rear-view mirror.
  2. We then cut the sealant on the perimeter of the windscreen.
  3. The damaged windscreen is then lifted out using industrial-strength suction cups with handles.
  4. We clean the old sealant before replacing it, then lower the new windscreen into place.
  5. We refit the trim and secure the windscreen temporarily with tape while the sealant cures.

Other Glass

We provide auto glass repair and replacement for side windows, mirrors, and sunroof and canopy glass.

Side Window Replacement

Side Window Replacement

The procedure of side window replacement takes mechanical skills as well as glazing skills, as the car door parts need to be disassembled and reassembled properly during the process to avoid damage to the vehicle. Our staff are proficient in this process and guarantee expert service.

Car Mirror Services

Car Mirror Services

A driver’s mirror is an integral part of a safe vehicle. We provide mirror cutting services and can help you avoid purchasing an expensive one from a dealership.

Other door services

Other door services

We also provide cargo and sliding door window cut-out services. If your vehicle does not come with these features, we can install them for you. We now also offer EmuWing side access window installation, providing an access solution to those hard-to-reach areas.

Sunroof and Canopy Glass Repair

Sunroof and Canopy Glass Repair

We provide sunroof and canopy glass repair and replacement. Like side window replacement, sunroof and canopy replacement require mechanical skills to ensure the vehicle is not damaged in the process.

Excellent service is our standard, and our staff can help you with your auto glass needs, whatever they are.

Aftermarket glass

Aftermarket glass

We provide aftermarket canopy glass as part of our service. Aftermarket glass is made by a company other than the original manufacturer, or by the same manufacturer but on a different line. These parts are of the same quality but cheaper than their OEM counterparts.

ADAS Calibration and Windshield Camera Recalibration

We provide ADAS calibration and windshield camera recalibration as part of our services. Windshield cameras and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) require calibration after windscreen replacement, as the systems can be affected by the process. Examples of windshield cameras and ADAS include:
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

    • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
    • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
    • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

      We provide diagnostics of ADAS and rest the parameters in the vehicle’s system back to the manufacturers’ recommendations.

      ADAS Calibration

      Services

      We provide auto glass repair services, including ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) calibration, aftermarket glass, and windshield camera recalibration.
