Depending on its size and position, a chip on your windscreen may cause distraction or even impair visibility. If ignored, small chips can enlarge and become impossible to repair. Secondary cracks can form under the combined effect of heat, moisture, frost, dirt and vibration. This may weaken the stability of the windscreen and affect the correct functioning of the airbag. Consequently, it is essential to repair the damage quickly, because any dirt or moisture that enters the chip will make it more difficult to produce a visually acceptable repair.
The right tools, experience, practical skills and sufficient time (don't rush!) are the key to ensure a successful, high-quality windscreen repair.
In many cases, Glass Repair can prevent the windscreen from having to be replaced. Small chips, if ignored, can easily enlarge and become impossible to repair. Thus, it is important to act quickly.
