Windscreen Repair Vs Replacement- A Dilemma That Every Car Owner faces


Don’t know whether you need to repair or replace your car’s cracked windscreen? Then read this article for some guidance.”

If you are still driving a car that has cracked windscreen, then stop it immediately. Driving a car that has a cracked on its windscreen is not just unsafe, but illegal too. Yes, that’s right! There are many countries in which, driving a car with a chipped windscreen is against the road-safety rules and you might be charged a hefty fine for it. So, wondering what the solution is? It’s simple; visit a reputed car servicing company and get the crack repaired or else, get the windscreen replaced.

There are many people who don’t get their cracked windscreen repaired/replaced because they feel that’s going to be too burdensome for their pocket. But, that’s utter foolishness. Money definitely matters, but it’s not more important than someone’s life. Hence, do not refrain from repairing or replacing your cracked windscreen.

Now, the obvious question that must be striking you is- “Should I repair it or replace it?” Well, this is a million dollar question. Even I faced this dilemma when my car’s windscreen sustained a chip due to a minor accident. But, I could soon overcome my dilemma when I had a word with one of my friends who owned a cracked windshield repair company. Wondering, what did he tell me? He basically told me that repair/replacement of the windshield depends on three major factors. To know those factors, keep reading.

Size of the crack
After you have noticed a crack or chip on your car’s windshield, the first thing you need to do is check the size. In case you are not able to analyse the size of the crack/chip, make sure you visit a car windshield repair centre. The specialists generally say that if a chip is smaller than a quarter or is three inches long, then it can be easily repaired. But, if it’s more than that then you might need to get it replaced from a reputed car repairing centre.

Depth of the crack
The depth of the crack is another major factor that will decide whether you need to just repair or replace your windshield. Basically, a car’s windscreen is like a glass sandwich. It consists of an outer layer of glass, plastic interlayer and an inside layer of glass. If the damage is all the way through the outer and inner layer, then it can’t be mended. But in case it has just damaged the outer or the inner layer, then there are fair chances of repairing it.

Location of the crack
Now, this is one of the most important factors that will help the specialist decide whether he needs to repair or replace it. In case your car’s windshield has sustained a crack that extends to the outer border of the glass, then be rest assured, the structural integrity of the windshield has been damaged. So, in such a case you’ll need to immediately get it replaced. Also, if you see that the cracks are parallel to the driver’s vision, please get it replaced instead of repairing it. Why? Because it could blur the vision of the driver!
And, if the crack is situated at a spot that’s nowhere near to the driver’s vision or is far from the outer edge of the windscreen glass, then your car repairing specialist can easily repair it.

After going through the article, I’m sure that your dilemma has vanished, isn’t it? So, keep these three major factors in mind when repairing or replacing it. There’s another suggestion for you, don’t try to fix it yourself, always visit a service centre that excels at front and rear windscreen repair.
