If you have ever been on the receiving end of a chipped or cracked windshield while driving it can be a startling event. Even a chip caused by a small rock from a passing car or truck can created a significant “pop” when it occurs. If you are very fortunate, the small rock will not do any damage. But even if it causes a chip, you can still consider yourself lucky. That is because a chip repair is easier and less costly than paying for a complete windshield replacement.  In fact, even if it is a small crack, a cracked windshield can also be repaired without the expense of full replacement.

What you need to keep in mind however, is that you may only have a limited amount of time to fix a small chip or crack. That is because glass may look solid, but in a vehicle the windshield will flex slightly with the motion of that vehicle. You never know what pothole, set of railroad tracks or slight bump may cause a small problem to become a very big one. While that small crack or chip may be easy to ignore, waiting could be costly. That’s why it is important to get that small crack or chip fixed immediately.
