Why should get my chipped windshield repaired?

Improve your safety. Chips can compromise the structural integrity of your windshield. If it takes another hit in the same place from a larger object, the windshield may not absorb the and deflect the impact like it should. This can cause the item to enter the cab and cause bodily harm.

Drive legally. If a chip is obscuring your vision in any way, you may as well be driving with a bumper sticker that says, “Pull me over.” There is not a clear legal precedent for a visual obstruction. This means an officer can pull you over simply to confirm the obstruction, leaving you open to additional inspection.

Don’t get caught unaware. Under the right circumstances, a chip can quickly turn into a crack. Large cracks can be dangerous, illegal, and impede your ability to operate your vehicle. Our services help keep a chip from spreading and help to restore the protective properties of your windshield.
