At Windshield Plus™, we always first try to repair your existing windscreen before replacing it with a new one, usually saving you both time and money.
Repair or replace?
Take a look at our short presentation below to find out if it is likely that we will be able to repair the damage to your existing windscreen or whether it will have to be replaced.
Step 1 of 4: The size of the chip
To be able to repair a chip to your windscreen the size of the chip needs to be no bigger than a £2 coin.
Step 2 of 4: The position of the chip
The chip must also be situated more than 6 cm from the edge of the windscreen.
Step 3 of 4: The driver's line of vision
Finally, if the chip is in the driver's line of vision, the damage must not be more than 10 mm across. The driver's line of vision is an area approximately 30 cm wide, centered on the middle of the steering wheel.
