Rock Chip Repair
When a rock has chipped your windshield or other auto glass, you may think you can put these repairs on hold. The only time that’s a good idea is if you already want to replace your entire windshield. Chips can easily turn into cracks if they aren’t properly repaired. This tendency becomes especially true during freeze/thaw cycles in the winter months. Get affordable rock chip repair in Portland and get moving. The experts at Collision Auto Glass & Calibration make it happen.
Why should I 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 sizable object, the windshield may not absorb and deflect the impact as it should. This impact can cause the item to enter the cab and lead to 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 legal gray area means an officer can pull you over 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.
