Chips Vs. Cracks
Chips in a windshield that are 3/8" in diameter or smaller can be repaired without the need to replace the windshield. Cracks in a windshield cannot be repaired and require a full replacement of the glass.
A crack is any extended line from an initial chip that typically extends as you ignore the problem. All cracks require a windshield replacement.
Common windshield chips include:
- Star Break. These cracks spread outward when not repaired, causing cracks to go in as many as five different directions.
- Bull’s-Eye. This is the most common type of chip and typically the smallest. A bull’s-eye crack is also the easiest to repair.
- Half Moon. This type of chip is like a bull’s-eye, but it doesn’t make a complete circle. These can also be easily repaired.
Windshield Chip Repair
Repairing a windshield chip is a relatively easy process if you bring in your vehicle before the crack gets too big. At Glass Doctor Auto of Longmont, our team of professionals will follow four steps to repair a chip in your windshield:
- Prepare the chip by clearing any debris (broken glass) from the site of impact.
- Inject repair resin using a special tool.
- Wait for the resin to dry and cure.
- Buff and polish the repaired area.
While there are several DIY windshield repair products on the market today, don’t risk performing a half repair that leads to cracks down the road and, ultimately, a windshield replacement. The pros at Glass Doctor have fixed thousands of windshield cracks and are highly trained to protect the integrity of your windshield.
