Is the size of your auto windshield chip smaller than the size of a nickel?
If yes, your auto windshield is repairable!
Do not wait until it is too late! Rock windshield chips eventually turn into line cracks as the shock from the road bumps continue to strain on the chip. When that happens, your car window chip will no longer be repairable and must be replaced with a new windshield. Chip repairs can last for years.
Did you know that your insurance company will likely waive your deductible and cover your windshield chip repair?
This is almost always the case for your insurance company to waive your deductible and cover for your chip repair(s) because insurance companies know how expensive it can get to having your windshield replaced compared to having your chip repaired. Simply ask your insurance claims department whether or not your policy will waive your deductible and cover for your chip repair(s). You should get an answer right away! If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask us.
Laminated glass repairs do not necessary prevent the glass damage from spreading. We cannot guarantee that the original glass damage crack will not spread. However, most chip repairs we have done have lasted for years without further cracking the chip into a long line.
There is no way to know when an auto glass chip will occur or how serious it will be, and it is often quite a hassle to get it done. But although it is understandable that people are busy and don’t have much time for things outside of work, the correct auto glass installation could mean a huge difference between a safe car and a dangerous one. Here are just a few reasons why not repairing an auto glass chip is dangerous.
It creates a blind spot for the driver
Regardless of how small the auto glass chip is, it still counts as blind spot, and an entire area that blocks your visibility. Even if the crack had occurred on the sides of the windshield, it would still prevent the driver from having a good view of the road, and may be blocking important road signs or potential danger, without leaving the driver enough time to react.
It is very annoying
Similar to the effect that a dirty spot has on glasses, having a crack on your windshield is extremely annoying, and makes it very dangerous for you to drive with it. Because it is located in an area that should be entirely clean, it is very difficult to not look at the crack that has suddenly appeared, and this is certainly not a good way to drive a car. From all the reasons why an auto glass chip should be repaired by auto glass chip repair and replacement professionals, this is perhaps the most important one.
Your auto glass is weak
When your auto glass has any type of crack on it, it automatically becomes much weaker than it was, which means that it will likely not be able to sustain its shape in the case of a car accident, even a minor one. You may need to have an entire auto glass installation done in order to ensure that your car is safe, because although some small cracks can be fixed on their own, the bigger ones usually require a windshield replacement.
Always take your auto glass chip repair and replacement responsibilities very seriously, because it is not just your own life that will be affected by your decisions, but also the lives of everyone else in the car. Your auto glass is a very important part of your vehicles, and ultimately the part that keeps you safe from many outside influences, so remember to take good care of it on time, so that you do not suffer for your lateness later.
