Should You Repair or Replace Your Windshield

Whether you should repair or replace your windshield depends on the severity of the damage. It is possible for small chips to be repaired if only one layer of glass has been damaged. However, if the chip expands so that it is longer or wider than a credit card, you need to replace your windshield completely. Once the vinyl between the glass has been damaged, it is a safety issue and you must replace the windshield.

Types of Damage That Can be Repaired

  • Typically, small breaks in the non-acute area (see illustration) can be repaired.
  • The acute area is right in front of the driver.
  • Small breaks that likely are repairable are: bullseye, star, half moon, and combination

Why Is It Important to Repair a Cracked Windshield?

Because windshields are actually two layers of glass held together by polyvinyl butyrate, they don’t shatter like other windows in your car may after a collision. However, just because the windshield remains intact after a crack does not mean it is safe. Not only can a cracked windshield block the driver’s vision, it can actually cause an airbag to deploy or cause more injury if there is a collision. Many people are unaware that the windshield is actually part of the structure of the car, protecting passengers from significant injury. If you have a cracked windshield, it is critical that you have it repaired as soon as possible.

  • Cracked glass may be compromised and the windshield is part of the safety system of the vehicle
  • Vibration Can Cause a Crack to Spread
