It’s always a hassle when you notice a chip or crack in your car’s windshield. And while window replacement is always an option, repairing that windshield is possible in certain cases, which may save you time and money. If you’re considering auto glass repair instead of replacement, here’s what you need to know so you can make the best choice.
It’s Best for Small Damage
Windshields with multiple chips or cracks may no longer be structurally sound. Repairs work best when there’s only a single instance of damage on your window.
It Works When You Catch the Damage Early
You know that a mild crack can suddenly grow or a chip can begin to spider seemingly overnight. That’s why getting your damaged windshield addressed promptly is so important. Once that damage exceeds one inch for chips or a couple of inches for cracks, window replacement is the only option to resolve it.
The Chip or Crack Needs to Be in the Right Spot
For a successful repair, the damage needs to be in the main part of your windshield, away from the edges. When the damage to your windshield interrupts the lens of a sensor or camera located close to the edge of the window, it means that window will probably not be a good candidate for repair.
