Windshield Chip Repairs

Occasionally, a windshield will get a chip in it which can take many forms ranging from what appears to be a small bubble in the glass to a full crack a few inches wide. We here at Gillman Honda San Antonio want to be sure that you are fully informed about what these cracks means and how to deal with them.

First, the most important thing to remember is that any chip or crack in a windshield reduces the structural integrity of the glass and increases the chances of the windshield shattering. Smaller chips can be repaired without replacing the entire windshield as long as they are caught and addressed very early. If not, hitting a pothole or other external factors can cause the windshield to spider crack and decrease visibility for the driver.

Longer cracks in the windshield will almost always require full windshield replacement as these types of breaks are simply too structurally compromising.
