It seems there is nothing more frustrating this time of year than to hear that familiar smack of a stone hitting your windshield, and the inevitable pit or chip that comes as a result of the impact. "That's why they call it Break-Up in Alaska," says Nick Hansen of Nick's Auto Glass. Most auto insurance covers windshield replacement, but the most frustrating part of having to replace your windshield is the time it takes away from your daily work or routine while you make an appointment to be without your vehicle for half a day or better. That's why a year ago Nick started his own auto glass repair business. "I've been replacing windshields for more than 13 years and 10 of them here on the Peninsula," says Nick. "Some people think one man can't replace a windshield, but I do it all the time in almost any weather. I have two types of urethane I use. One that is a cold weather urethane that is good to 15 degrees and sets up in about an hour. I can come to your home or office, before, during, or after hours what ever is convenient for you so you don't have to get a ride or wait while the work is done, and about an hour after I arrive you're ready to go with a new windshield," he says. According to Nick most insurance companies recommend you replace a windshield if you get a chip anywhere in the driver's vision part of the windshield, but small chips he can repair, "If you get a rock chip the best thing to do is put some clear tape over it to keep the water out of it and give me a call and I'll come to your location. It only takes about 15 or 20 minutes for me to make a simple repair and expand the life of your windshield and keep it from cracking," says Nick. If the windshield has to be replaced Nick can get any windshield he doesn't have in stock in short order. "Unfortunately I can't stock every windshield for every car that has ever been made, but I stock most of the more common vehicles like Chevy trucks and special order windshields only take a couple of days to get here," said Nick. All it takes is a call to Nick and your insurance company and your break-up frustrations can be over. "All I need is your policy number, you let your insurance company know you want me to do the work and I will work with any insurance company.
I can also do side windows on cars, campers, or mobile homes, any auto or home windows basically if its broken call me and I'll fix right where you live or work." For all nicks, cracks, or repairs just phone 252-9715 for Nick's Auto Glass Repair.
