Windshield Repair FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)
Should I contact the car wash or car care facility if I have a question or a concern?
The Masters Touch is solely responsible for all windshield repairs done at each car wash listed on our locations page. Masters Touch assumes all liabilities involved with the repair of the windshield.
Is the repair really Free or No-Cost?
Repairing a windshield is a good value. If you have comprehensive coverage, and choose to have your windshield repaired rather than replaced, most insurance companies will waive your deductible, leaving no costs for you.
Will my insurance company waive my deductible? Will my rates increase?
Windshield repair is normally covered by your comprehensive insurance policy. Major insurance companies now encourage repair. Cost, safety, convenience and your satisfaction are among the reasons insurers suggest repair. While only your insurer can answer this question for you, we have found that most insurers typically do not adjust an individual policy holder's rates solely because of a comprehensive glass repair claim. Windshields of today are so costly that insurers now pressure claim agents to push windshield repair and not replacement. Insurers like saving money.
Why fix a chip if it hasn't ran or cracked yet?
The longer you delay, the possibility of the damage area spreading rises significantly. Damage can spread from extreme temperature changes (hot/cold) or stress on your windshield. The National Glass Association says when repairs that are performed soon after the damage occurs, almost always look better than repaired older damage. Rain, dust and road grime will contaminate the damage over time thus inhibiting the best cosmetic results and may cause further spreading of damaged areas. Over time, these un-repaired rock chips can still "crack-out" and result in the need for a windshield replacement. It is wise to repair them before this happens.
Should small surface chips and pits be repaired?
National Glass Association states: Even a pin head size surface imperfection on a windshield has the potential to get worse. In particular, if the windshield damage has a shadow, or black or silver discoloration around the impact point, it could "crack out" if not repaired. Pits and surface chips are the beginning of potential further damage. Visible damage should be repaired.
Should I contact my agent or insurance company?
We're experts at verifying coverage, filing the claim and handling all the paperwork. Our affiliate companies Safelite Solutions and LYNX, administer auto glass programs for more than 100 insurance companies. We'll contact your insurance company and submit the claim on your behalf. Hassle free. Or if you prefer, you can also pay the technician directly and file the claim personally.
Why did a glass installer say it couldn’t or shouldn’t be repaired?
Many glass companies offering replacement will sometimes install a new windshield when it isn't necessary for obvious reasons of greater profit. Un-repaired damage often leads to replacement. Glass installers normally suggest replacement not repair.
This sounds to good to be true. Is it?
In some areas of the country, chip repair at car care facilities is almost a given, in others it is not as wide spread. "If a chip is repairable, it's a win-win situation," said Allstate spokeswoman Shelley Beeler, agreeing about it being a convenience for the customer, and one that might prevent further damage. “It costs less for Allstate to fix the chips versus paying to replace the entire windshield”, she said. Allstate believes the car care facilities where this service is offered through a glass company can help consumers.

Is windshield repair new?
No. Since 1972 windshield repair has saved companies and consumers billions of dollars over replacement. The Federal Highway Safety Act of 1968 required all vehicles sold in the U.S. be equipped with shatter resistant or laminated safety glass windshields. Researchers immediately recognized the economic and environmental benefits of creating a method to repair shatter resistant windshields. Repair would give consumers a cost-saving alternative to windshield replacement while contributing to the nation's environmental priority of reducing the burden on America's overflowing landfills. The research of the early 1970s led to the birth of the U.S. windshield repair industry. For nearly 40 years, that industry has provided consumers with an economical, effective and safe alternative to windshield replacement. Today, over 4 million damaged windshields are repaired annually. Private and public fleets along with most automotive casualty insurance companies were among the earliest advocates of windshield repair and they remain loyal customers today.

My wife and I stopped at the Jax Kar Wash in Birmingham to have both of our
windshields repaired due to stone chips. I wanted to write and tell
you what an excellent job the man who fixed them did. He got a huge
chip on my windshield filled very well and virtually eliminated the
chip in my wife's windshield. I am very impressed!

I had a chip repaired at the Jax's location in West Bloomfield. The repair was
done quickly and efficiently by my technician. He was very professional.
The repair was what could be expected. Both chips were reduced to a
small point, and I was satisfied with my experience.
- Aaron M.
On February 13, 2009 at approximately 11:30/13:00, a technician brought to my
attention that there were a few chip marks in the my windshield, and
at my request he repaired them.
The technician was professional and helpful with all of my questions. He was also very quick. The only thing that was disappointing was having to wait for him to get a hold of Progressive, which was not his fault. It was Progressive maze of automated questions/responses.
All in all, it went well.
- Dave J.
I had my windshield repaired today and the service person (Brad) was excellent.
He took care of the problem and handled the transaction very professionally.
I would rate him a 10, and would recommend him to anyone else who needed
I recently had the pleasure to have the windshield of my vehicle, a Saturn Outlook,
repaired by Mr. Rob S. at the Jax Kar Wash in Rochester MI, on the
Rochester road. This was an outstanding experience! I was very satisfied
with the approach Bob took, the very friendliness, professional explanation
of his doing and the actual repair to the windshield. He did give
me the impression right away as being a serious customer oriented and
focused person with deep respect to the customers need, sensitivity
and in the same time understanding to get something accomplished in
a timely manner not taking any extra time. Even so, I did not have
all my paperwork with me where i provided proof from my last visit's
certification, due to the acknowledgement of the garage/car wash supervisor,
Bob agreed to provide his outstanding service within seconds. Since
2 weeks have been gone now, I still enjoy the excellent execution of
this repair, as my wife drives the vehicle daily
our kids (school back and forth etc) where safety is a No. 1 concern and with the restored visibility thru the windshield we do owe Mr. Bob S our continuous appreciation and a Big Thank you for an outstanding service.
Just a quick note too let you know what a great job Rob did on my windshield...Very
pleased with it and he was very courteous!! Thanks again Rob!
I was impressed with your representative and the fast service. He was very knowledgeable,
polite, and professional. Nice job. I will recommend to a friend.
