Auto Glass The Woodlands
Auto glass isn’t the run of the mill glass your home’s windows are made from. The glass your vehicle uses has been designed and manufactured with your safety in mind. It has been specifically designed to withstand far more strain than your average piece of glass because it must be able to withstand potholes, rocks and fender benders, which are things that your home’s glass will rarely, if ever, encounter. As a result, when your auto glass does suffer from chips and cracks, you need to bring it to a shop that specializes in repairing and replacing this special type of glass.

Flash forward a few years and we now have a team with over 50 years of combined experience in the auto glass industry and tens of thousands of satisfied customers.

Auto Glass Chip Repair
I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of a perfectionist. It’s why I went into the glass business in the first place—I can’t handle imperfections. So the thought of watching a chip in my windshield splinter into a crack that runs all through my car’s protective screen is basically my worst nightmare.
A little chip in your vehicle’s windshield can seem benign, but rest assured that the sooner you get it repaired the better. A tiny chip in your windshield can turn into a crack at virtually any time, usually when you least expect it. For example, when you’re driving is a prime time for the chip to transform into a hazardous crack right before your eyes.
Thanks to the hassle-free repairs offered by Multi-Glass of Texas LLC, we can repair any chips in your auto glass in hardly no time at all. When you do, your vehicle’s structural integrity will be restored for a price that works for your budget.
Mystery Leakage From Your Car's Windshield or Window
If you’ve never experienced mystery leakage coming through the windows or windshield of your car, you’d be surprised at how often it can happen. Whether it’s caused by the bad workmanship of another company, or a manufacturing error, sometimes our clients in the Woodlands find water is entering their car seemingly from nowhere!
Why is this such a big deal? Well, first of all, nobody wants to get wet on their way to work. But there’s a better reason—your good health and safety. The fluid that keeps your windshield looking streak-free and shiny? There are a lot of toxic solvents in there. It’s not something I want dripping through an insecure window into my morning coffee, that’s for sure!
When this occurs, just bring your vehicle to Multi-Glass of Texas LLC. Chances are we’ll be able to find the source in five minutes and fix it on the same day. We’ll even take preventative measures to make sure leaks don’t pop up on any other windows over time!
How to Avoid Chips and Cracks
Rock chips and cracks—they’re just the worst, aren’t they? They’re most common in areas with slippery roads. Why’s that? Because municipal and city workers will pour rocks and gravel onto roads for added traction.
What’s the easiest way to avoid chips caused by pebbles and small rocks? The solution is simple: Stop tailgating vehicles. The more you tailgate vehicles, the more your windshield will get hit by little rocks.
If your windshield does get cracked on those rock-filled roads though, don’t hesitate to come in to our shop for a quick and painless repair!
Common Types of Auto Glass Damage: Bullseyes and Stress Cracks
If you go into an auto glass repair shop, you don’t want to feel uninformed or ignorant. You want to be able to communicate your issues. You want to understand your auto glass specialist is telling you. When you present yourself in a professional manner your auto glass repair team will provide you with answers that are more thorough and equally professional.
The team at Multi-Glass of Texas LLC decided to compile a list of the common types of cracks and windshield damages.
Chips and Pits: We all know what a ‘chip’ is. It is a small piece of glassing missing from the windshield. If you hear it referred to as a ‘pit’ in the shop, though, don’t let yourself get confused. They might call the area where the chip came from the ‘pit’.
Bullseye Crack: There’s also the ‘bullseye’. The bullseye is like a chip, but larger in size. It is very visible and not just because of its size. The impact-hole has a very dark and noticeable color. Despite the frightening look of this dark impact-hole, bullseye damage is easy to repair. The team at Multi-Glass of Texas LLC can usually fill and seal a bullseye crack with ease. If a bullseye crack is left untreated, however, the problem can increase in severity.
Combination Break: A combination break is auto glass damage that is a combination of both a chip and a crack. A combination break can happen instantly, or it can form over time. An un-repaired chip will weaken a windshield, leading to the formation of cracks.
Edge Cracks: Edge cracks are created when something strikes the edge of your windshield. If the crack starts within two inches of your windshield we would refer to it as an edge crack. A floater crack, by contrast, is a crack that occurs near the center of your windshield and does not extend to the edges of your auto glass. When a floater crack reaches the edge of your windshield it usually cannot be repaired.
Stress Cracks: Stress cracks aren’t caused by impact. Rather, a stress crack occurs when the glass is exposed to extreme shifts in temperature over a short period of time. Since no glass is lost, the process of repairing a stress crack can be more complicated than a regular crack.
At Multi-Glass of Texas LLC, we’ve seen it all. Whether it is a challenging stress crack or a bullseye, we will be able to take care of it!
Auto Glass Repair vs. Replacement
A lot of our customers want to know if they are better off getting their auto glass repaired versus getting it replaced. Truth be told, we evaluate a vehicle’s condition on a case by case basis. There are too many variables to recommend a single course of action. But it’s this approach that allows us to confidently put you back behind the wheel safer than ever before.
The best and most surefire way to know if you need auto glass repair—where we salvage your existing glass—or new auto glass replacement, which is self-explanatory, is to bring your car into our repair shop in The Woodlands so we can take a look.
Did your glass crack due to a blunt-force impact like a passing rock or a fallen tree branch? Did it break cleanly into only a few pieces, or did it shatter into millions of tiny fragments? These variables affect what we’re able to do. At Multi-Glass of Texas LLC, we do right by our clients: if the cost of repair is close to or the same as just replacing the window, we’re going to recommend you do that instead. That way, you get the benefit of a new warranty!

Our technicians examine the structural strength of the glass in your vehicle to make sure it’s able to stand up to all the pressures it will need to face on a daily basis.Windshield leaks are frustrating, and don’t always have a source that’s easy to identify. But you can count on Multi-Glass of Texas LLC to find that source quickly, and deal with it at rates you can feel good about!
Auto Glass Replacement

Going beyond simple auto glass repair, a windshield that needs replacing will have large cracks and chips that block your vision, shattering, or holes that you can noticeably feel air coming through.

On the road, the safety of you and other drivers should be your number-one priority. It’s true that shelling out part of your paycheck to replace your auto glass is not fun. But it’s extremely necessary. Not doing so drastically increases your risk of being involved in a serious accident—and then you’ll wish you paid for the auto glass replacement instead!
