What types of damage should I consider repairing?

It is tempting to think that a damaged windshield is something that does not require immediate attention, but a damaged window can affect much more than a driver's wallet. The safety of the vehicle is jeopardized by auto glass problems. When the safety of your vehicle is in question, the safety of everyone around your vehicle is in question. When considering when repairs are necessary, please take into account the pedestrians, drivers and others that are near you and at risk. These are some examples of issues that need addressing:

  • Chipped glass can lead to breaks with weathering or unexpected impacts.
  • Cracks can open further and spread across the windshield. The weakened structure can no longer provide the strength that is expected when this happens.
  • Scratches along the surface may see benign, but often lead to more damage if not repaired.

Why is modern automobile safety glass so different?

The windshield of modern cars is so much more than the layer glass that it used to be. Normal glass is prone to shattering and breaks from pressure. Today's auto glass is actually two layers of glass with a layer of vinyl between them. This creates a tensile net that glues the glass together, reducing incidents of fracture and shatter. The end effect is a window that is incredibly effective at separating the outside of the cabin and the inside. This basic layer of protection is key to any car's complete safety kit.
