They can big small and barely noticeable or long cracks reaching from one side to the other. How do you know what it can be repaired and when it’s too damaged and needs to be replaced? Most car owners want to put if off as long as possible. No one wants to be inconvenienced with something that seems so small. However, knowing what to look for can protect from further damage and can even keep you and your passengers safe from breaking glass.
In most cases, whether it’s a chip or a crack, the windshield can be repaired; however, this depends on factors including the size, type, depth, and location of the chip or crack. An auto glass company will determine if the damage can be repaired or needs to be replaced, but each case will be looked at closely in order to decide what needs to be done.
