InterMountain Auto Glass was founded in 1996, by Rick Valentine and Mark Kirkland in Boise, Idaho.

InterMountain Auto Glass soon discovered the need for full service operations in the mountain region around the Boise area. With this need InterMountain Auto Glass expanded into the Ketchum/Sun Valley area. In 2004 InterMountain Auto Glass started operations in Jackson, Wyoming to serve the Jackson Hole area and we are now servicing Eastern Oregon. See all locations

What is windshield repair?
Windshield repair is a modern process that utilizes resin technology to repair, rather than replace a damaged windshield. Repairing a damaged windshield saves money by preventing the need for costly replacement. Road debris often strikes a windshield causing damage. This damage can range from small chips to large shattered areas. Most of the smaller damages can be repaired without removing or replacing the windshield thus stopping the cracking process.
What kind of damage can be repaired?
Look at the picture above to see what classifies as a chip. The size should be smaller than a 25 cent piece. Best results are obtained if the repair is done before the damaged area is contaminated. The longer it sits there, the more air/water/debris can fill in the hole. If the damaged area is contaminated, the rock chip can still be repaired, but the overall appearance of the repair may be affected.
How is a damaged windshield repaired?
Basically, the process consists of injecting a resin into the damaged area. When the resin fills the damaged area, it is covered with a sealer and exposed to an ultraviolet light which cures the resin. This process bonds all of the tiny cracks together and prevents the cracks from spreading. Most rock chip repairs can be done in 15 minutes.
How will the windshield look after repair?
After a repair is completed, the appearance of of the broken area improves, but it does not always disappear from sight. There is always slight damage where the rock chip was filled. When looking through the glass, vision should not be impaired. If vision is impaired, the windshield should be replaced. The whole gain from this is to glue your crack back together and bring back integrity to the glass. The main objective of repairing a rock chip is to extend the life of the windshield. Repairing a rock chip is about 95% effective in preventing a chip from turning into a major crack that would require replacement
What does my insurance cover?
Windshield repair is covered by the comprehensive portion of an individuals insurance policy. All major insurance companies typically encourage repair. Most insurance companies will waive any deductible requirements if a windshield is repaired rather than replaced. Please contact your insurance agent to confirm your eligibility. Intermountain Auto Glass will bill the insurance company once a claim has been called in, saving you the hassle! Ultimately, it’s your car and your call about what is done to it.
