Has Your Windshield Been Chipped?

If you drive on rural highways or roads with heavy traffic, chances are you've experienced having your windshield hit by flying rocks or debris. Windshields are usually strong enough to resist cracking when this happens, but sometimes a large enough stone will cause a crack or chip.

Tiny cracks can slowly grow into long ones over time, so it's a good idea to have windshield chips repaired soon after they happen. Otherwise you may need to replace the entire windshield in the future because cracks over a couple inches are beyond repair.

Chip repairs are performed by bonding the glass at the damaged spot with a resin to stop further cracking. This will improve the appearance of some chips or cracks, but not always. Stop by our service center if you have questions about chips or cracks you find on your windshield.
