It’s faster and cheaper to repair a chip than to replace the entire windscreen. In most cases it only takes 30 minutes and is about a third of the cost.
Today’s laminated front windscreens can withstand most chips and rarely shatter with small impacts. Although the windscreen stays in one piece the chip needs to be fixed promptly or it will become a crack and will grow, affecting the strength of your windscreen.
Chips aren’t all the same, however, and it’s important to get the right advice and expertise to make sure it’s fixed right the first time. If the repair fails you will be up for the repairs and the cost of a new windscreen.
Expertise is important
To fix chips we attach a special bridging machine to the windscreen to keep it steady then inject a resin right into the middle of the chip.
It goes without saying this takes a bit of practice to get it right. There’s no second chance.
Not every crack can be fixed. Some are located within the driver’s field of vision so the windscreen would have to be replaced to meet RTA recommendations. Some chips may seem small but require a steady hand to make sure the damage doesn’t spread. This means it’s essential to deal with auto glass specialists who know what they are doing. Our team of experts can repair any windscreen on any vehicle or they will tell you honestly that the only safe option is replacement.
