How Do the Experts Do Windshield Chip Repair?
You can buy a window repair kit at the store, but you will more than likely only make your problem worse. The kit won’t get rid of the problem, but rather you will just be filling the chip with a resin. The chip will still be there and possibly visible, too. Not only that, once you use a store bought kit you risk ruining the chances of a repair shop being able to help you. However, the pros will use special materials and tools to get rid of the problem instead of just masking it. Once you take your problem to a specialist, you won’t have to worry about a crack spreading across your view.
Do I need to Fix a Windshield Chip?
The short answer is yes. You can go ahead and ignore the problem, which is what most people do. However, the problem will not get better or go away with time. Driving on a daily basis with the wind constantly pushing on the chipped glass will eventually cause a crack to form. Once the crack forms your repair will be most likely cost much more. Not only that, driving at high speeds with a cracked windshield is a huge risk. The windshield could possibly shatter over time.
