A chip almost always turns into a crack, often when you least expect it. If it happens when you are driving, it could be a major distraction. Once the chip is repaired, your windscreen will be sound again.
Your windscreen provides up to 30% of the vehicle’s structural strength and the passenger airbag relies on the windscreen to provide support when the airbag deploys. Repairing a chip will make your windscreen as strong as it was before the damage occurred.
If the chip turns into a crack, your windscreen will have to be replaced.
A windscreen repair takes approximately 30 minutes.
Repairing a chip is quicker than replacing a whole windscreen. A windscreen chip can be repaired in about 30 minutes.
