Windshield Chips

Windshield Repair

How do I know if my windshield can be repaired vs. replaced:

* If the size of the damage is smaller than a quarter.

* If the chip is not in the driver’s direct line of vision.

* If there are no spider cracks extending from the chip larger than the size of a quarter.

In many cases Insurance will cover a chip repair without charging the deductible. Check with your local insurance agent. Once repaired, if the chip spreads and the windshield requires replacement, Frank’s Glass will apply the chip repair cost toward the price of the new windshield.

A chip repair is structural, not cosmetic, so you may still be able to see where the chip was repaired. The repair is performed to help protect the crack/chip from spreading and requiring a complete windshield replacement.
