At UniglassPlus/Ziebart, we always try to repair first.
Why replace the windshield if a repair is possible?
Most windshield repairs are covered by your insurance policy and have no deductible. Repairing also saves the costs of an expensive replacement.
Taking quick action will help you get rid of most minor cracks or chips in your windshield. As time passes, though, the damage will worsen and replacing the glass will become necessary.
Common types of breaks such as the bullseye, half-moon and star can be repaired if they are less than the size of a toonie, they are not located directly in the driver's line of sight and they are taken care of by a skilled technician.
It’s very simple: don’t wait until it’s too late and take action right now.
Do you Repair or Replace?
1. Evaluate the risk
It is important you identify the type of crack or chip in your windshield in order to know if the damage is minor (green), serious (yellow) or urgent (red).
Nature of risk :
- Green : You have a minor crack, but there is risk. There is still time to act before the impact becomes yellow or red. Go to the nearest UniglassPlus/Ziebart location as soon as possible.
- Yellow : Need for quick action. This crack will require windshield replacement very soon unless you attend to it now. Delaying the repair, will result in high and unnecessary costs. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
- Red : You must act now! There is no time to lose. You are putting your safety and that of your passengers at serious risk. Have your windshield repaired immediately.
