MyWindscreen Has a Chip – What Should I Do?

A driver will never be ready for windscreen damage and in almost all situations, it comes as a surprise.

Decades ago, if there was damage on the windshield, the entire glass had to be replaced. Today, thanks to technology, this is no longer the case.

Now, it is possible to have the laminated glass repaired whether it has a crack or a chip. Best of all, ittakes less than an hour.

When you notice a chip or any other damage to your car’s windscreen, you should act fast. Contact a local windscreen repairer and get them to fix it as soon as possible.

But make sure you choose a mobile repairer who can come to you. You should never drive with a damaged windscreen.

Why a Chip or Crack should be Repaired Immediately

It’s vital that a windscreen chip is repaired immediately. Besides saving you money there are several other benefits too.

You Prevent the Damage from Extending

One reason is because the more you drive, especially on a rough road, or if you hit potholes often, the more the damage will spread.

Second reason is that if the temperatures are highly especially in summer, the damage can extend quickly.

When this happens, it will no longer be possible to repair the windscreen and instead you will have to pay for a full replacement.

The Original Windscreen Stays in Place

Another benefit of having the windscreen repaired as soon as possible is that the original or the manufacturer’s one will stay in place.

You cannot be guaranteed that if that glass is removed and a new one is installed, it will maintain the firmness and fit the original one had. This might affect the structural integrity of the car in the long run.

The Driver Avoids Impaired Visibility

Although the chip may not be in the driver’s line of vision, it can spread to this point where it impairs visibility. This is not only annoying, but it is a safety risk as it could lead to accidents especially at night and in extreme weather conditions.

Got Damage? Get it Fixed Now!

One thing to remember is that whenever a crack or chip is repaired, this is never an inferior solution. It is a solution that will save you a windshield replacement and will keep the original glass in place.

Getting a qualified technician who has the ideal knowledge and uses the right products will see the windscreen being repaired without issues. Most technicians are using UV light heating lamp and high-quality resins to do the repairs.

Do a quick search and you will find a mobile technician to repair the windscreen, no matter where you are.
