Reasons to Fix a Windshield Chip | Glen Burnie, MD


Chip happens. It doesn’t matter how carefully or safely you drive — debris can get kicked up into your windshield, causing chips in the glass. If you wind up with a chip in your windshield, the last thing you should do is wait to have it fixed. The longer you delay, the bigger and more expensive your problem could become.

Chips Become Cracks...

That chip in your windshield may be small now, but in time, it will become a crack. The longer you wait to have your windshield repaired, the larger the crack will become. If you bring your vehicle into J.B.A. Collision Center while the chip is small, we can more easily repair rather than replace. When a crack emerges, you’re most likely looking at a full windshield replacement.

...And Cracks Become Hazards

If the chip in the windshield becomes a crack, it obstructs your view of the road. It should go without saying that the purpose of your vehicle’s windshield is to provide a safe, clear view of the road ahead. With a large crack, you have a dangerous safety hazard that puts you at greater risk. Because a damaged windshield is a driving hazard, you could be cited and ticketed, costing you even more money. By having your chip repaired early, you can protect yourself in more ways than one.
