If you are living in Charlottesville, VA and your windshield has recently been damaged, you may be wondering if you should replace or repair. While Clear Vision Auto Glass can repair most chips on the windshield, cracks generally signal the need for replacement. This maintains the structural integrity of the vehicle and the safety of those who use it. Even though there are some exceptions, the general rule is that cracks more than six inches long, and chips larger than 3/8 of an inch, will require windshield replacement. The location of the crack will also determine whether the windshield needs replaced. Windshields that have cracks at their edge will require replacement. This is because of their tendency to spread. A chip in your line of vision warrants the replacement of the windshield. This is because repairs often do not cure them precisely, which causes distortion in your line of vision. The longer cracks and chips are unrepaired, the more they will contribute to the need for a replacement. This is because dirt will build up in these chips and cracks over time, making it harder to perform a successful repair, which then leads to a replacement. Do not let a damaged windshield endanger your family.
