Any windshield damage should be fixed right away, either by replacing it or repairing it. Repairs can be done only if it is a small stone chip that has not spread.. If left untreated, windshield damage is likely to spread, causing more problems, including safety issues.
Minor damage (stone chips) can often be repaired before it spreads. Repair is possible when only the outer layer of the laminated safety glass is damaged.
If for any reason the repair fails, the cost of the repair will be applied toward a replacement windshield.
Best of all, in most cases, your insurance company will waive the deductible on repair service, so it’s free to you! But the longer you let the damage remain without having it fixed, the more dirt and debris will collect in the break – and the more the break will spread. If it gets too large, it is very likely that a replacement will be necessary.
If the damage appears in the “acute area” or the driver’s line of vision, the windshield will need to be replaced.
