What Is a Stone Chip? How Will It Damage My Windshield?
The impact of small stones, debris, rocks and pebbles on the road can cause a small damaged spot referred to as a stone chip. Your windshield may chip in the following ways and shapes:
Minor chips are usually easily repairable by trained and experienced technicians if attended to on time. If left untreated, small chips can escalate and worsen into a crack, which is when a replacement is the only feasible option.
How Will I Know If the Chip on My Windshield Is Repairable?
The possibility of a chip repair depends on the location, size and severity of the stone chip on your windshield. If the damage caused by the chip is only on the outer layer of the glass, it can be easily repaired by a professional. However, if it has damaged both layers of the glass or if the damage is in the driver's line of vision, windshield repair will not suffice as it could leave you with a structurally-weak windshield, which is when a replacement becomes the practical solution.
