  • Windshield repairs can become more expensive if the damage expands. For example, cracks can become worse from temperature shifts and weathering events.

How is modern auto glass so resilient?

The windshield is constructed with two layers of glass sandwiching a middle layer of poly-vinyl laminate. This composite is often called safety glass or laminated glass. The plastic laminate layer is all but invisible to the human eye and provides many key features that make automobiles much safer and more comfortable. When a windshield is impacted unexpectedly, the plastic layer provides a bendable structure that holds the window together as a single layer. Maintaining the shield like structure of the window is what makes it such an important safety feature. The windshield can keep the exterior elements out and interior elements in. Laminated glass also absorbs high frequency noise at an increased rate from normal glass, making the cabin less distracting. Ultraviolet light is also almost completely absorbed by the poly-vinyl, 97% of it never enters the cabin.

What damages should a driver be watching for?

If damage is suspected, the windshield needs to be brought to an expert for evaluation. Some drivers don't know what to look for though. The following examples are all cases of a windshield that needs to be inspected:

  • Cracked glass is an obvious indication of severe damage to a window. The poly-vinyl layer is often all that keeps this material together.
  • Scratched windshields may have been weakened by a minor impact and should be checked out by a professional. Scratches can expand into cracks if they are deep enough.
  • Chipped windows are indicative of minor impacts and often are precursors to cracks and other serious damages.
