Windshield Repair & Replacement FAQs

How do I know when to repair or replace my auto glass?

It’s best to get your auto glass checked out as soon as possible. Even if your chip or crack is small, it can spread if you hit a pothole or drive on a gravel road. If you wait too long, that small crack that could’ve been repaired could grow into a much larger crack that requires a full auto glass replacement, which is likely to cost you more. When to repair vs. when to replace depends on several factors, like the size, location, and number of chips or cracks. While a repair can be quick, easy, and inexpensive, a replacement can be more costly, making it crucial to visit an auto glass specialist immediately following the accident.
