Tech Tip – Terminating Long Cracks

Recently, there has been some debate on the forum about how to terminate long cracks and if they are worth the attempt to repair. Delta Kits follows ROLAGS (Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standards) in all areas of windshield repair repairing damage, which recommends that any piece of glass with damage longer than six inches (the size of a dollar bill) should be replaced and not repaired. ROLAGS is a set of standards and guidelines, not a set of laws or rules that require obedience. With that said, cracks over six inches can be repaired, but most insurance companies only cover cracks up to six inches.

What are the benefits to doing long crack repair? Many technicians are afraid of attempting to fix long cracks; therefore, there is a market for doing these types of repairs. However, there are a couple of things to be aware of when fixing long cracks. The crack will never completely disappear though many times the customer expects it to. It cannot be stressed enough that expectations need to be established with the customer before the repair is started. Fixing cracks takes more resin and more time, which means that most technicians need to charge more for long crack repair. Check with your customer’s insurance company to make sure they will cover the cost. If they do not, then your customer will need to pay out of pocket. Be sure to thoroughly explain your payment policy and cosmetic expectations prior to performing any long crack repair.

When terminating a long crack, first make sure the windshield is between 70-100 degrees; this step is very important because long cracks are volatile and unpredictable. READ MORE
