Repair or Replace Your Windshield?
When you see damage on your windshield, it’s understandable if your first thought is to have it replaced. But did you know that the windshield can be repaired? Not only does this service help you save time, but it also keeps more money in your wallet. With that said, a windshield must have specific qualifications to go through repair service. Here’s how you can tell if your damaged windshield can be repaired or replaced:
- Repair It: Any small chips and cracks can typically be replaced and the general rule-of-thumb is that damage can be repaired if it can be covered by a dollar bill. Make sure to act quickly though, as the crack or chip can quickly spread throughout the windshield.
- Replace It: There’s a lot more that can qualify a windshield for replacement services, and although it’s more expensive, replacing a windshield is the best way to ensure its structurally sound. If there are more than three chips or cracks, if the damage is in the eye line of the driver, or if the damage is along the edges of the windshield, then it must be replaced. This is because performing repairs could compromise the structural integrity of the windshield, placing you and your vehicle in danger.
