Do You Need a Windscreen Repair or Replacement?

by Novus AutoGlass Novus Auto Glass

The windscreen of a car is responsible for protecting the driver from the outside environment and also has to provide a clear view of the road. However, while doing these tasks, the windscreen has to endure the brunt of nature’s fury. Whether it is in the form of gusts of air or rain, the windscreen is always on the receiving end of some kind of abuse. Moreover, there are also the rocks that get kicked up by other vehicles on the road which cause damage to the windscreen. This is why the windscreen needs to be checked every now and then. If you spot damage on the windscreen, you have to decide whether it can be repaired or windscreen replacement is the only choice available to you.

When is Windscreen Repair Possible?

If your windscreen has a little chip or a crack that is a few days old then repairing it is a possibility. The smaller the chip is, the easier it would be for you to repair it. However, make sure that you do the repair work as soon as possible. This is necessary because dirt and dust will accumulate within the chip and is going to further damage the windscreen.

Windscreen repair is only a possibility in cases when the chip or the crack isn’t too deep. If the damage has penetrated the lamination layers of the windscreen then repairing it might not be feasible. In any case, it is never a good idea to perform the windscreen repair yourself. If possible, take the car to a windscreen repair expert and have them do the repair work. They will be better able to assess the damage and decide whether it is repairable or not. 

When Does Windscreen Replacement Become Necessary?

In cases when the windscreen damage is irreparable, windscreen replacement becomes inevitable. For instance, if the chip or crack is too deep or long then repairing it won’t be a good option. Moreover, if the chip is located directly in your line-of-sight then again its repair isn’t possible. The reason for this is that such chips continue to hamper your vision even after they have been repaired. So, it is best to replace the windscreen rather than repairing the chips.

When getting your windscreen replaced, it is crucial that you select the windscreen replacement service carefully. You have to find an expert that has years of experience in this field and knows about the different kinds of windscreens. Only such a service would be able to replace the windscreen in a safe and secure manner and restore your car’s structural integrity.
