What is Fiberglass?

Fiberglass is fine-spun filaments of glass used as insulation and for reinforcement of a resin binder when repairing vehicle bodies.  Fiberglass is  commonly found in the front and rear bumpers, hoods, doors, and casings in some cars.

How is fiberglass professionally repaired?

Repairing damaged fiberglass requires resin, catalyst, and fiberglass products.  Fiberglass repair requires specific repair materials unique to their physical makeup and chemical design.

Fiberglass can be commonly found on:

  • Sports cars
  • Racing cars
  • Dune buggies
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Trucks
  • Car Kits

Ourestimates are always free and you are welcome to come by our shop anytime or make an appointment.  We know that many clients like the convenience of sending pictures of their car and request an estimate; but, in reality an estimate by this means is not really reliable.  Why?  Because the estimate will either be too high or too low.  In order to assess the damage and give an estimate, a car needs to be seen by a professional and in person.  This insures that the estimate is as accurate as possible, not too high or too low.  For more information click here.

If you are not able to come by our shop during normal working hours, you can give us a call or send us an email, and make an appointment when you can come, in most cases we are able to accommodate our clients.
