No one likes to be driving down the road and have a rock or small piece of debris hit their windshield. First, it is startling and second, it usually leaves you with a cracked windshield, and if you’re lucky you will only need a chip repair/rock chip repair. If you’re not so lucky, and the object caused your windshield to sustain broken auto glass you could be looking at a windshield replacement.
The next move is yours if you choose not to have a rock chip repair or have the cracked window replaced you may end up having to have an auto glass replacement done, which is a lot more costly than a quick and simple chip repair.
If the rock or debris hit the windshield hard it may have broken through the first layer of glass, usually you cannot tell because most people don’t know what to look for. Driving around with only one layer of glass in the area where the rock hit the window makes your entire windshield more susceptible to even more damage.
Rock chips are not uncommon in Minneapolis or anywhere for that matter, where there is traffic and rocks there is always the potential for your car’s windshield to get a chipped or cracked.

The best tip we can offer you, is to have your windshield repaired as soon as possible, even if it does not look that bad. A rock repair/rock chip repair and even a cracked windshield can be fixed in about a half an hour and is a lot less costly than a windshield replacement. If you wait the rock chip could spider or crack and cause even more damage that would require an auto glass replacement, which costs a lot more than a repair and takes 2-3 hours.
