Repair or Replace?
It’s important that if your windshield gets damaged, you understand when you should get it repaired or replaced. Although repairs are the preferred method due to its lower cost, it may not be advised as the structural integrity of the windshield may be compromised. Wondering if your windshield needs to be repaired or replaced? Aiken Collision is here to help you. Here are a few things to keep in mind when determining the proper service for your windshield!
When we’re inspecting a damaged windshield, we always look for how big the damage is. Ideally, we want a crack to be around three inches or shorter. For chips, they should have a size similar to a quarter. If they fit within this criteria, we can repair your windshield! If not, a replacement may be needed as the windshield’s safety may be compromised.
Location is the next thing we look at. If the damage is sustained along the edge of the windshield and it is not taken care of quickly, your windshield may be compromised. Cracks tend to spread out a lot quicker along the edges of the window. Along with that, if a crack is found in the direct sight line of the driver, we may recommend a replacement as the repairs typically leave a small blemish that could limit a driver’s vision.
This one is pretty black and white. Even if your windshield falls within the first two checkpoints, if it’s sustained major damage, you’ll probably need a replacement. Although technology has allowed our technicians to fix a variety of issues, sometimes the damage can be too great. By getting a new windshield, you’ll be ensuring you’re driving with safety and clarity.
