Many drivers do not realize that small chips and cracks in the windshield can be repaired easily. If caught early, a qualified auto glass technician is able to completely repair a small damaged area, saving the driver from needing a replacement. Once the area is repaired, the strength of the windshield is restored and the damage is no longer visible.
A windshield is an important safety feature of your vehicle, protecting you and your passengers during an impact or a rollover. A certified auto glass technician can repair chips and cracks in the glass. Clear resin is injected into the damaged area and then cured with a special light source. Once this process is complete, the windshield’s strength is restored and the damage is virtually invisible.
Chips and small cracks in the glass may be repaired, saving the owner from replacing the entire windshield. It is best to have the damage fixed as soon as possible to avoid contamination from dirt, water, or any other environmental factors.
Why repair rather than replace?
When possible, a windshield repair is usually the best option for drivers. It generally costs less to repair the glass rather than replace it. In fact, many times it will be paid completely by your insurance company. Repairing also keeps the original factory installation of the glass intact. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to complete, allowing drivers to get back on the road quickly.
There are times when repair is not an option and the entire windshield must be replaced.
