If there are one or more chips and cracks in your windshield, you are not alone. This can happen to anyone. Flying rocks or debris, snow and hail, even drastic temperature changes can cause a windshield to sustain damage.
So, what do you do if there is a tiny crack in your windshield. And what do you do if the crack has gotten away, unnoticed, and is spreading across the windshield? Here are a few things you should know about windshield damage and repairs.
The first important thing is to determine the size of the crack. If the crack is more than 12 inches long or the windshield is chipped, with the chip smaller than a quarter, the damage can be repaired, without the need for a replacement.
But, if you continue to drive your vehicle with a chip larger than a quarter size or a crack longer than 12 inches, remember that the windshield may not hold in case of a collision, a rear-end or a rollover accident due to compromised integrity. This can be a great risk to your safety. It is urgent to get the damage fixed immediately.
