The Definitive Guide to Windscreen Repair

windscreen repairs Rotherham ChesterfieldAs an experienced accident repair facility in Chesterfield, we know just how frustrating it can be when you chip or crack your windscreen. Our advice would always be to get your windscreen repair taken care of as soon as possible, whether that’s a simple chip or crack repair, or a full windscreen replacement. So, here’s everything you need to know about windscreen repair, and exactly what to do in the unfortunate event that you do damage your car windscreen.

Stone Chips & Cracks

We’ve all been there. You’re driving along and suddenly; a stone hits your windscreen. It’s frustrating, especially if it’s on the drivers side. If your windscreen survives the chip, and it doesn’t develop into a crack or worse, unfortunately there’s still the possibility that it will cause your car to fail its next MoT if the chip is larger than 10mm and in the line of sight.

A cracked windscreen can even impede your vision as a driver and could make it hard to see approaching traffic and other road hazards clearly. Even small chips and scratches can cause problems, making glare from sunlight and other car headlights worse. It is, therefore, worth fixing stone chips and other windscreen damage sooner rather than later.

Don’t Put Off Windscreen Repair

Here at CRS, we specialise in windscreen repair and replacement. In our experience, it’s never wise to leave a small crack or chip, even for a short length of time. The fact is that this type of damage will not fix itself, and a small chip can soon grow into a serious crack, resulting in the need for a full windscreen repair.

Many small chips can be invisibly repaired at a fraction of the cost of a replacement windscreen, by injecting an acrylic or epoxy adhesive into the chip.  This seals the chip and prevents any dirt of moisture penetrating it. So, it’s always worth getting any chip or crack checked out as soon as you can to minimise any further damage. Larger cracks, however, will need more detailed cracked windscreen repair.
