Small pits and chips in your vehicle’s auto glass or windshield can be easy to ignore. But over time, small chips become small cracks, and then large cracks. And that’s a problem.
Windshield Crack Repair
If the crack spreads across the windshield, it can disrupt the driver’s view and make driving unsafe. But there’s another problem, too. The passenger compartment of your car was designed to be a shell of safety to protect you in case of a collision. Your vehicle’s passenger side airbag is designed to use the windshield as a backstop in the event of a car accident.
If the windshield’s integrity is compromised with rock chip damage or a crack, the airbag may not deploy properly and may compromise the structure and stability of the passenger compartment, and that makes your car unsafe to drive! And it all can start with a small chip or pit in your windshield.
Repairing Your Windshield
If the area of damage to your windshield is smaller than a dollar bill, you may consider repairing the damage instead of replacing the entire windshield.
Windshield repair is a permanent process that removes air from the break and fills it with a curable, optically matched resin. The process bonds the glass together and restores strength and structural integrity of your windshield. Whereas the purpose of the repair is to prevent the break from spreading further, often our repair process will improve the break’s appearance.
*Please note that you will likely still be able to see the repaired area and that sometimes the repair process will cause a crack to spread necessitating a full windshield replacement.
Nevertheless, more often than not a glass repair can be completed in a manner that will improve the appearance of your windshield significantly. Windshield repair is economical, safe and effective, and can usually be completed in under half an hour.
