Who Fixes Windshield Chips?

Windshield cracks and chips can be repaired using a home kit or by having a professional glass repair technician come to your home or office and do the repair on the spot. If you use a home kit, the kits can cost anywhere from $15-$50 and up, usually having to order them online and pay a shipping fee. 

If you do it yourself you also run the chance of making the chip or crack worse, and learning how to do it properly is going to take a few hours, as well as the time it takes to do the task.

It’s faster and easier to hire an auto glass technician. Windshield technicians often use resin material to fill up and seal the chip. Ultraviolet rays are used to harden and dry the resin.

Importance Of Maintaining Your Windshield

Windshields are vital and play a huge role in terms of protecting the occupants in the car. They help keep debris and harmful objects from entering into the interior of the car. Moreover, they not only help support the roof of your car but also lessen the impact during a collision.

As important as windshields are, they can be easily compromised. Granted, windshields are often strong and can take a certain amount of beating. Yet, the threats are still there, as well as its ability to break from a strong impact.  If your windshield is cracked or chipped, you should get it fixed right away.

T Repair of Laminated Automotive Glass Standard (ROLAGS) states that each type of crack or chip in a windshield has a different repair standard. 

A window crack can basically be described as a minor damage to a windshield. This type of damage can occur when a small object hits the windshield glass, causing it to chip. A chip, small and seemingly insignificant, still needs to be repaired right away.  If not, the chip is likely to grow into tiny cracks over time, damaging the windshield even more. This will weaken your windshield, rendering it ineffective from protecting your window adequately. In other words, it can easily break if it suddenly impacted by an object.
