Do you know you could get pulled over by a cop and ticketed for driving with a damaged windshield? So when you find damage in your car’s windshield, you should go immediately to an auto glass repair shop. But the real question is whether you should get your windshield glass repaired or replaced.
Here are the top ways you can find out which out of the two – repair or replacement – is the better idea.
Effect on Driving
Check whether the windshield damage prevents you from driving properly. A crack in the driver’s line of sight can be dangerous. In the second case, a windshield replacement is required.
Repairing the glass can leave marks that can reduce the driver’s visibility. In that case, a windshield replacement should be made.
Size of the Damage
The size of the damage should also be considered to decide between windshield repair and replacement. If the damage is bigger, the glass will need to be replaced otherwise repaired.
Location of the Damage
The location of the damage matters. Apart from the damage being in the line of sight of the driver, another indication that the windshield is to be replaced is if the damage is in a corner. That can cause the windshield to break or shatter. Other chips and cracks can be repaired.
Extent of Damage
Bigger and too many chips will need to a windshield replacement.
If your windshield looks too damaged, do not risk driving and call for a mobile service for auto glass repair.
