Windscreen Replacement fitting time and cost
A new windscreen replacement will take about an hour, but if the screen is bonded (as most modern cars and vans are) then there will be a further wait time of an hour to allow the bonding process to complete.
So if you need a cheap windscreen repair or car glass replacement but still want a high-quality product and service give us a call.

Repair your chipped windscreen for far less than a replacement.
Leave you a guarantee for all work performed
We can repair chips anywhere on your screen and once finished the glass will be back to its original strength. After the repair is completed, there is always a visible mark where the chip or crack has been filled with specialist resin. This resin will prevent further breakage and your screen will be left feeling smooth to the touch.
Repairing a windscreen with a stone chip is a job better done sooner rather than later. If a chip or small crack is left unattended it can elongate and become worse with driving. If the damage becomes too bad, there may be no alternative but to replace the whole screen. Replacement windscreens are usually covered by your insurance, but there may be an excess to pay and the replacement may affect future insurance premiums.
Windscreen repair is the environmentally friendly alternative to replacement and chips up to the size of a 10p can usually be repaired without the need for replacement.
The carbon footprint of a repair is much smaller than the one produced by the manufacturer of the replacement windscreen and the recycling of the old one.
Windscreen Repairs are for the repair of laminated glass only. You do not need to determine if the windscreen is laminated if it is chipped or cracked it must be laminated,
the older toughened windscreen do not chip; it shatters into thousands of pieces.
The repair process works by injecting a liquid acrylic resin into the damaged glass. The resin is cured by the use of long wave ultra violet light.
After curing the repair will:
Step 1 – It will restore the strength to the damaged glass. BS AU251:1994 is the relevant British standard for measuring the performance of windscreen repair
equipment and copies are available from BSI if required.
Step 2 – Cosmetic improvement. Repairs restore the optical or cosmetic appearance. The size of the blemish left is a function of the severity of the initial damage.
Step 3 – Durability. Repairs are permanent and the vehicle can be washed or driven immediately after repair.
Step 4 – Heated windscreens can be repaired in exactly the same manner as ordinary windscreens.
Step 5 – Tinted windscreens or tinted top band areas can be repaired in the same manner as plain windscreens.
The “colour” is in the PVB interlayer not the glass. The glass picks up the colour from the interlayer, the repair resin will do exactly the same.
