Windscreen Repairs in Perth and Wider WA
Is your vehicle’s windscreen chipped or cracked? Depending on the severity, AUS Mechanical Services can provide quick and affordable repairs without needing to replace the glass.
You will almost always need a full replacement if the damage is significant, or if it’s located anywhere in the driver’s direct line of vision or near the edge of the windscreen. However, if the damage is small enough and located elsewhere on the glass, we may be able to repair it at a fraction of the cost.
How it works
After cleaning the damaged area of the windscreen, we carefully inject a resin that is specially formulated to bond with the glass. We ensure the resin has filled all the cracks and gaps in the glass and then allow it to cure before cleaning and polishing the hardened surface. This process can be used for the front, side or rear windows of almost any vehicle, and makes the damage virtually invisible while helping the glass retain its strength.
The importance of windscreen repairs
It can be easy to put off windscreen repairs or even dismiss it altogether. However, even a small chip or crack needs to be addressed as soon as possible. The reason? Windscreen damage of any kind will quickly spread if left unattended, meaning what started as a simple repair job has turned into a full replacement.
Your vehicle’s windscreen is not just integral to visibility. It also provides important structural support to your vehicle, which helps prevent the roof caving in the event of a roll. Any damage to the glass threatens the strength of the windscreen, making it imperative to have it addressed as quickly as possible.

Why a damaged windscreen should be replaced as soon as possible
Obviously, your windscreen is crucial to visibility and any hindrance in this aspect can be a significant safety hazard. But did you know that the glass does much more than shield you from the elements? The windscreen is actually an important structural component your vehicle, as the glass helps reinforce the roof in the event of an accident; this protects you and your passengers by preventing a cave-in during a roll. It’s also designed to pop out of the frame instead of shattering to avoid passengers being injured by shards of glass.
Any form of damage to your windscreen drastically weakens its strength and compromises the structural integrity of the vehicle’s roof. On top of that, cracks and chips almost always spread over time if left unattended to, making it crucial to get a windscreen replacement as quickly as possible to avoid any potentially serious safety hazards.

Your vehicle’s windscreen provides essential support for the roof in the event of a roll, so it’s essential that the glass is in good condition. Any damage significantly weakens the pane and can lead to serious safety concerns; on top of that, chips and cracks tend to get worse if no action is taken to repair or replace the glass.
