Bugs. Rocks. The whoosh of air that comes with cutting down the highway. These are the reasons why the expert technicians at Avalon Auto Glass dedicate their professional lives to keeping windshields roadworthy. During quick, professional windshield repairs, nicks as large as a quarter fall to the filling power of the chip repairmen, heading off the danger of decreased sight lines or further cracking. Complete replacement quickly switches out completely compromised windshields.
