Did you know that most windshield chips, which reduce the strength of a windshield by up to 70 percent, eventually spread into larger cracks requiring a full replacement and could cost you more money. Extreme temperature changes, such as running the heater and defroster on full blast when you first get in your vehicle, can create significant stress on a windshield, often causing an existing chip to spread and become a crack.
Most windshield chips and cracks up to as much as 6 inches can be repaired safely and quickly by a certified technician.
If you have a small windshield chip or crack, have it repaired as quickly as possible before we get into colder temperatures. Check with your insurance company to see if windshield repair is covered by your comprehensive auto coverage, most companies will waive your comprehensive deductible to repair a chip or crack.
When performed by a certified technician, windshield repair:
- Restores a windshield's structural integrity
- Prevents damage from spreading
- Only takes about 30 minutes & can usually be done at your workplace or where you car is located
So if you have a chip or small crack, take care of it before it turns into something larger and costs you your deductible.
