Repairing A Windshield
The point of impact on the glass will often be marked by a bull’s eye crack. Left untreated, this small web-looking chip will spider and spread across the windshield. Don’t wait to repair a crack as they will worsen with time, temperature change or repeat damage. Auto glass shops like Auto Glass Solutions are conveniently open 24 hours a day for quoting via our website. We also offer Auto Glass Services including:
A Matter of Safety
Many people don’t realize that a crack in the windshield compromises their safety. In modern cars, the windshield is actually part of the vehicle’s safety restraint system along with seat belts and airbags. The safety restraint system (SRS) is designed to keep the passengers inside the vehicle’s main compartment during a collision. Your windshield supports the structural integrity of the passenger compartment and helps to keep the roof from collapsing during accidents and roll-overs. It also supports the passenger-side airbag during deployment. Windshield technology is designed to break and flex which cushions the blow of impact should any passenger be thrown forward into it. All of these safety features could be compromised if your windshield isn’t repaired after it cracks.
Can every crack be repaired?
While many windshields can be repaired, some will require replacing. If the initial bull’s eye chip is smaller than 1 ½ inches in diameter, or about the size of a silver dollar, it can usually be repaired. A crack that’s less than 6 inches long is also a great candidate for repairing.
