When Should I Repair or Replace

When Should I Repair or Replace a Cracked Car Windshield?

Your vehicle’s windshield is important for your overall auto safety. It is a major safety device and can save your life in case of an accident. One of the most common auto glass questions is wondering whether to fix or replace a cracked windshield. How to tell?

A crack can happen when small rocks or debris hits your glass and causes a crack or chip in the glass itself. Chips in your glass often turn into cracks.

 

Over time, the cracks can grow bigger due to inclement weather and temperature changes. Insurance companies tend to have different opinion when it comes to the size of the crack to determine if your windshield should be repaired or replaced.

If your glass crack is less than the size of a dollar bill or if your chip is less than the diameter of a quarter, then a repair will suffice. However, there are a couple of factors to consider when deciding to repair instead of replace.

Is the crack in direct view of the driver?
Is the crack running out to the outside edge of the windshield?
Is the surface of the glass missing?
Is the chip bigger than the size of a quarter?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions or have any doubts, then National Auto Glass of Tucson, Inc. recommends having your front windshield replaced if there is any type of noticeable damage. This will insure that your windshield will be put back to the proper auto safety standards.
