Windshield Repair Vs. Windshield Replacement

Windshield Repair

A windshield repair can only be performed on a windshield crack or chip that is very small – for example, smaller than a dollar bill. Unlike a windshield replacement, a windshield repair doesn’t require removing the windshield and typically takes 30 minutes to complete.

Windshield Replacement

Larger cracks and chips will require a windshield replacement. This involves the removal of the current windshield and the fitting of a new windshield. Replacements typically take a little over an hour.


Defender Auto Glass is Northeast Ohio’s trusted auto glass repair source. Created on the promise of delivering superior quality and service, you can expect auto glass results that make your windows look brand new without sacrificing the quality or safety of your vehicle.

Quality Driven: We only use glass that meets, or exceeds, the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and government standards.  Which means your new auto glass is as good as the original it is replacing. Our installations are guaranteed as long as you own the vehicle against leakage, and as long as rust is not the cause of the leak.

Superior Convenience: At Defender Auto Glass, you are our focus. That is why we offer Mobile Services that will come to you. Just tell us where you work, or where you want the windshield repairs completed and we’ll be there to make the repair (weather permitting). All at no extra charge.
