Chip Repair? How To Know If Your Windshield Can Be Replaced
How do you know if you should replace your windshield rather than just get a chip repair? If your chip is larger than a quarter, you need to consider getting a replacement. Most shops do not fill in cracks. Things you should know:
*The windshield is a HUGE part of your car. In case of an accident, your windshield plays an important role in protecting you and your family. Therefore, your windshield should be in good condition!
*Chip repairs don’t always disappear after they have been repaired. The number one reason to get a chip repair is to ensure the integrity of your windshield, not the good look of it.
*Windshield replacement is important when you have cracks longer than a dollar bill or chips in your line of vision.
*Pitted windshields cannot be repaired. This type of windshield looks like a disco ball in the sun. A lot of glare comes into the driver’s line of vision and making it quite dangerous. These pits are too small to repair. A replacement is needed.
Sometimes a chip can be tricky to repair. The best advice is have an auto glass technician take a look at it. No chips are equal or the same. It all depends on how the rock hits the windshield.
