Windscreen Crack & Chip Repairs

Got a chip or crack?

Fast Autoglass offers fast car window repair. We take care of all glass damage that occurs as a natural consequence of driving on the road.

Our mobile or workshop-based auto glass repairs technicians can often resin-fill chips and cracks, stopping them from growing larger and resulting in the needs for a whole new windscreen.

Our windscreen chip repair and crack repairs are performed to meet AS/NZS2366.1 standard using a repair system that complies with AS/NZS2366.2 standard. A certificate of compliance is issued with all repairs we do that meet the standard required.
