Windshield Repair Services in Harrisburg

Damage to your windshield is a major inconvenience. While you might assume a damaged windshield automatically means you need a full replacement, we can repair it if the crack or chip is no bigger than 6 inches and isn't in front of a sensor or camera. 

Many people will put off getting a chipped windshield serviced, fearing that the repairs will be prohibitively expensive, but chip repairs are surprisingly affordable. Depending on your insurance, it may not cost you anything at all. Other reasons to get your chipped windshield repaired include the following.

·     Significant problems could arise later: It may be a small chip now, but it could get larger as time goes on. Larger cracks will eventually require a full replacement, which is costlier and more time-consuming.

Windshield Camera Recalibration

Do you have a camera attached to your windshield? This camera is a component of your car's advanced driver assistance safety system (ADAS). Its purpose is to improve your safety while driving. 

ADAS systems protect you and your passengers by creating a "force field" around your vehicle to reduce the chance of collisions. These protective systems work in concert to improve safety by notifying you of potential issues and avoiding accidents. They can warn, aid and assist. Examples include:

·     Forward collision warning

·     Emergency braking

·     Lane departure warning

·     Lane keep assist

·     Collision avoidance

·     Pedestrian detection

The camera is a crucial part of ADAS, so if your windshield gets damaged and needs a replacement, most car manufacturers require camera recalibration. At Hoffman Ford, we can often replace your windshield and recalibrate your camera in a single appointment. Our technicians have years of experience with recalibrating these cameras to ensure you and your car stay safe. 

There are two main types of windshield camera recalibration.

·     Dynamic recalibration: This kind of recalibration requires driving the vehicle on clearly marked roads at a specific set speed. 

·     Static recalibration: During this type of recalibration, we affix an image to a target in front of your car.
