REPAIR OR REPLACE?

If you notice a chip or crack in your windshield, bring your car in right away, and we will tell you if it can be repaired, which will save you money. In addition to being less expensive, because you don’t have to buy a new windshield, windshield repair is the most environmentally friendly solution. 

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY WINDSHIELD CAN BE REPAIRED?

  • The crack can be no bigger than a loonie.
  • The point of impact must be at least 4 cm from the edge of the windshield.
  • The chip or crack must not be in the driver’s field of vision (an area 30 cm wide above the middle of the steering wheel).

Did you know that the initial resistance of a windshield is usually 180 kg/cm2? However, any impact to the windshield weakens it and may even cause it to break at 30 kg/cm2. Chips and cracks reflect sunlight and cause glare, a safety hazard. Hitting a pothole can also cause cracks to grow in size, as can freezing and thawing.

Don’t wait until it’s too late! If you notice a crack, come and see us right away. We will inspect your windshield, free of charge, and tell you whether it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
