Repairing Windshield Chips

Nearly every motorist has experienced that heart-sinking moment when a piece of gravel strikes the windshield and leaves a mark. Left untreated, these small imperfections can turn into cracks that cover the entire surface of the windshield. Knowing how to treat them early will avoid greater cost later on.

Whether it's a chip in the glass or a star-shaped crack, filling the imperfection with a clear resin can inhibit it from growing larger. The appearance of the chip may be improved a little or even a great deal, and the imperfection itself is strengthened, leaving it less prone to cracking if struck again. Fixing small chips is usually a fraction of the cost of replacing a windshield.

Fixing chips is best left to professionals, who have the correct equipment and expertise to complete the job. You can stop by Honda of Stevens Creek to have any windshield imperfections fixed. Our mechanics are experts at filling cracks and can usually finish the repair quickly.
