Determining Windshield Glass Care
Not many car owners know when they need to repair or replace their chipped or cracked windshield. While you should always ask a specialist for a professional opinion, many layman are able to determine the service their car requires by observing the damage. These are the easiest ways to determine if your windshield requires repair or replacement:
Size of Damage to Windshield
One general rule of thumb when deciding if repair or replacement is necessary for your windshield is the dollar bill rule. If your crack or chip is smaller than the length of a dollar bill, less than three inches, you are eligible for windshield repair rather than replacement. However, if your damage exceeds the dollar bill limitations, you may need to replace your windshield entirely.
Location of Damage
If damage to your windshield is along the outer edge of the windshield or within direct eyesight, you need to replace the entire windshield. When cracks or chips occur next to the edge of the windshield a repair cannot be performed because of the possibility to spread. Similar to that, if the damage to the windshield is the drivers line of sight, it can be dangerous to only repair that area. An entire windshield replacement may be the best option.
Time Before Windshield Glass Repair
Although windshield glass repair can be an unwelcome addition to hectic schedules, leaving cracks or chips in your windshield can increase the potential for an entire windshield replacement. The longer the windshield remains damaged without repair, the more dirt and grit that piles into the damaged area. If the damage becomes too dirty, repair is no longer an option. Restoring your pane quickly after damage is the safest and most budget friendly option.
