It’s All About the Location
Sometimes auto glass just cannot be repaired and it takes professional skill and knowledge to evaluate if it’s a safe repair. Locating the position of the chip in your auto glass is important. We can tell you if it’s entirely too close the corners of the windshield, which would mean that it would need to be replaced and it’s likely the integrity of the glass is not fit to remain intact. There are many other places on your auto glass that also might create visibility issues when the glass is not repaired or replaced such as the area where your windshield wipers move across the glass.
Repairs for Safety
When you have a chip any place in your auto glass it’s likely that it will spread further across your windshield or where ever else it is located. As you drive the pressure and bumps and dips from the road make pressure on the glass causing the chip to develop fissures. The change in temperatures of weather from hot to cold can also create continued cracking of a chipped auto glass. These continued cracks without repair or replacement can lead to the entire window falling apart and if it is your windshield, this is a critical situation. Your windshield it an important support system for your vehicle and when it’s absent your roof will likely collapse.
Various Types of Chips
A chipped glass isn’t just a chipped glass and depending on the size and type of chip your car window has, it can be either repaired or it may need to be replaced.

If it’s a crack with a chipped area, it typically depends on the size of the chip if it can be repaired or it needs replacement.
