While many chips and small cracks can be repaired, their location on the windscreen can affect the repairability. Typically, chips located in the driver’s line of sight or at the edge of the windscreen may require a full replacement for safety reasons. Our techs can assess the damage and advise on the best course of action.

After a windscreen replacement, we advise waiting at least one hour before driving the vehicle. This ensures the adhesive used to install the new windscreen has time to sufficiently cure and establish a secure bond.

Generally, small chips smaller than a coin and cracks less than three inches long can be repaired. The possibility of repair also depends on the depth of the damage and whether it has penetrated through to the inner layer of the windscreen.

To maintain your new windscreen, avoid harsh cleaners and amonia-based window cleaners. It’s also advisable to place a sun shade in your windshield on bright days to protect the sealant and try not to slam your car doors when the windows are completely rolled up as this can cause excess pressure buildup. Regularly inspect for any signs of damage and address them promptly.

Once a chip is properly repaired, the risk of it spreading is greatly reduced. However, it is important to get chips repaired quickly, as dirt and moisture entering the chip can make it more difficult to repair and increase the likelihood of it spreading.
