Glass repair

At Colchester Motorglass, we can repair the windows on the majority of vehicles.

Whether these are minor chips or large areas of damage, our experienced staff will be able to repair it.

We can perform a repair service on cars, vans, motor homes and more besides.

Chips fixed

A successful repair can also satisfy MOT pass criteria.

If you get a chip in your windscreen, don't delay in calling us. Unless fixed right away, they can worsen very quickly, especially in extreme weather conditions.

How it works

Windscreen chip repair works by injecting a clear resin into the damage under pressure and then polishing the resin so it is flush with the windscreen after a curing process.

This will leave the area fully sealed, thus prolonging the life of your windscreen.
