Windshield Repair & Replacement
WINDSHIELD DAMAGE? HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS!
The good news about windshield damage is that it can often be fixed free of charge when it’s caught early enough.
We can repair the glass if the damage to your windshield:
- Is no larger than a quarter
- Is limited to the outer layer of the laminated safety glass
And, in many cases, insurance companies will waive the deductible charge for windshield repair, so you may pay nothing. That’s a great reason to contact us as soon as you notice a chip or any other kind of damage. Call us at (800) 433-4198 or make an online appointment now.
If damage has occurred within the driver’s line of vision or the glass has been penetrated completely, the windshield must be replaced. Pull into one of our many locations in northern Florida or southern Georgia for quick assistance.
Don’t forget about our Mobile Auto Windshield Repair service.
WINDSHIELD LEAK REPAIR
WE STOP AIR AND WATER LEAKS
Time and the natural elements work against your vehicle in many ways. Here in Jacksonville and all along the Atlantic coast, salty ocean air, water, and other contaminants can team up to penetrate your vehicle’s windshield leaks, side lights, and back glass. If the problem is left unsolved, your car’s interior can be damaged.
Have you been involved in an accident? If any part of the windshield system was compromised but not properly repaired, you may find water leaking into the passenger compartment.
Have you had a windshield replacement recently? If you notice air or water entering the vehicle, your windshield leak may be the result of improper installation. If that’s the case, see us as quickly as possible. A poorly installed windshield represents a potentially serious hazard.
Lee & Cates’ skilled technicians can often detect and repair windshield leaks and stop air and water from entering your vehicle where glass parts meet seals and gaskets. In the event we aren’t able to find and fix the leak, you’ll pay nothing for our diagnostic work.
If your vehicle has a windshield leak, stop in soon for a no-cost, no-obligation inspection. There are several Lee & Cates locations in Jacksonville and throughout northern Florida, and we can repair it for you quickly.

WINDSHIELD REPAIR SAFETY
How do you know if you need a windshield repair or a windshield replacement?
At Lee and Cates, we can repair windshieldchips the size of a quarter or smaller, and windshield cracks up to 3 inches long. If the damage to your automotive glass is greater than that, the windshield will need to be replaced.
WHY IS WINDSHIELD REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT IMPORTANT?
In the state of Florida, it’s illegal to drive with any damage that obscures your line of vision. If you have damage to your windshield that prevents you from seeing clearly, you’re putting yourself and drivers around you in danger.
WHY SHOULDN’T I REPAIR OR REPLACE THE WINDSHIELD MYSELF?
There are plenty of do-it-yourself windshield repair kits available, but when it comes to windshield repair, it’s best to see a professional.
Kits like those found in home repair shops often contain glue that can make the existing damage worse — turning what was a routine windshield repair into a full replacement. While those kits may seem like a cheap alternative, the truth is that “cheap” isn’t worth your safety. The staff at Lee and Cates can evaluate the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action to get you back on the road safely and quickly.

WINDSHIELD REPLACEMENT IS SERIOUS BUSINESS
(Your windshield may affect your SunPass.)
If the old, damaged glass is not completely removed, or if the urethane used to secure the new windshield isn’t allowed to cure long enough, the windshield may not provide the type of protection or structural integrity you require. That’s why you should only trust this type of work to established professionals.

SEE MORE CLEARLY
We recommend Aquapel Glass Treatment. It’s the long-lasting water repellant that forces rain to bead up and rolls right off your windshield. It also reduces glare, especially at night, and makes it easier to remove snow, ice, dirt, and bugs. Ask us for more details, or watch this video comparison of Aquapel and Rain-Xs.
