If your windscreen has a large crack or just a small chip, it is important to get it repaired as quickly as possible. Often small bits of damage are easy to ignore but tend to get much worse when left unattended. Here at Fast Car Glass, we want to educate you in regards to the importance of proper care and windscreen repair when it has suffered damage.
Benefits of Repairing Your Windscreen
Your windscreen is made to withstand some of the toughest conditions on the road. That being said, anytime your glass gets damaged, it is important to repair the fault as soon as you can. There are several reasons that you will benefit from quick repair which are listed below.
There is a big price difference between fixing a small chip or crack and a full windscreen replacement. Chips in your windscreen can degrade over time and turn into cracks or webbing. Once they get bad enough, you will have no choice but to replace your windscreen completely. Fixing minor damage as soon as it occurs keeps your expenses low and your car safe.
Cracks on your windscreen can cause your car to fail inspection. Damage that is located in the area of vision of the driver poses a danger while on the road and this will result in a failure. You might not consider that chip on your windscreen to be a big deal, but the road safety agency in your city most certainly will.
Many insurance companies stipulate that damage to your windscreen must be repaired within a set time frame. This time frame is often tied to the validity of your coverage. If you fail to fix any cracks or chips in a timely manner not only can they refuse to cover the repair, they may even cancel your coverage completely.
Many new car models use particular types of glass for their windscreens. As a result, specific companies, repair shops, or the dealer themselves must perform any replacement or repair. If you choose to take your windscreen for repair anywhere else, the value of your car may go down and the warranty on your car may be rendered null and void. It is critical to read your car manual and all of your paperwork prior to having any services completed by a third party to avoid voiding your car warranty.
