The Chip Doctors at Dominion Windshield Repair have been serving the Northern Virginia community by repairing rock chips in automotive windshields with onsite service since 1996 and are delighted to celebrate their 10-year anniversary this month.
Dominion Windshield Repair sets itself apart from the competition by offering mobile computerized rock chip repairs utilizing state of the art equipment. Their certified technicians serve fleets, auto dealers and individuals throughout Northern Virginia.
Traditional windshield glass shop owners have no love for this group of specialists. By repairing several thousand windshields each year instead of replacing them, the Chip Doctors save consumers thousands of dollars since the repair cost is only about 20% of replacement costs.
According to Mike Burstein, President of Dominion Windshield Repair, "It has been estimated that 80% of all windshields that are replaced each year could have been repaired. Unfortunately, the general public just isn't aware that they can save their windshield by having it repaired."
The repair process injects an optically matched acrylic resin into the damaged area. Once all of the air has been removed and replaced by the resin, it is cured by UV rays. The repair restores the structural integrity to the windshield and usually hides 80 - 90% of the damage.
"It's always satisfying to see the look on a customer's face as they try to locate the repair after having their windshield repaired for the first time. It's not hard to sell them on the advantages of repair; the factory seal isn't broken, the technician comes to their home or office, the repair only takes 20-30 minutes to complete, the cost is pocket change compared to replacement and no additional trash is added to our overflowing landfills," says Burstein.
Over the last ten years, Dominion Windshield Repair has added VIN Etching for vehicle theft deterrent and headlight restoration to their mobile service offerings, performed with the same attention to detail as their outstanding rock chip repairs.
