Can windscreen chips be repaired?

How to repair a cracked windscreen without replacing it?

Windscreen chips can absolutely be repaired! Repair (rather than a replacement) is excellent for your wallet, your car, and the environment – provided it doesn’t compromise your vehicle’s safety.

First, every minute counts! The sooner you act to fix a dent, crack, or chip, the less time there is for it to spread and the more chance we have to save your windscreen.

Good quality windscreen repairs not only save your windscreen but can also preserve the factory seal of the windscreen to the vehicle’s body. It also can help maintain the structural integrity of the vehicle during a crash – the factory seal means the windscreen can better support the roof and keeping it from collapsing in the event of a crash.

If you’re unsure whether your windscreen chip can be fixed (or needs a full-blown replacement), we’ll check with you first to see if it is:

  1. Smaller than a $1 coin
  2. Not in the driver’s line of sight
  3. 7cm or more from the edge of the windscreen

Chips or dents that are larger or close to the windscreen edge likely require a replacement to ensure the safety of you and your passengers.

How do you repair a windscreen chip?

Our experienced technicians use industry-leading materials and equipment to inject a clear, durable resin into the crack or chip. Next, we cure and polish the glass to return it to around 80% to 90% of the original optical clarity. This process restores the structural integrity of your windscreen to the original strength of what it was before the damage!
