The most important part of a windshield repair is to perform the repair before the chip or crack becomes excessive or worse. A windshield repair is a cost effective and inexpensive repair compared to replacing an entire windshield. Small chips and cracks can spread very quickly and fast. The change in temperature, weather conditions and the pressures on the windshield with everyday driving all play major roles of a small damage becoming a big one and no longer repairable. Some key tips and rules of thumb of when a windshield repair is deemed insufficient and windshield replacement is necessary would be:
1. The damage is on the driver's side affecting the line of vision for seeing clearly.
2. The chip or crack has to be less than the size of a quarter.
3. The crack is on or near the edge of the windshield.
4. The damage has gone all the way through the windshield.
