Repairing or replacing your windshield is essential for maintaining your safety and the structural integrity of your vehicle. A damaged windshield can compromise your visibility, and even minor chips can worsen over time, leading to more extensive damage.
The decision to repair or replace a windshield depends on factors like the size, location, and severity of the damage. Generally, small chips and cracks can be repaired, but larger or more complex damage might necessitate a replacement.
While windshields are designed to withstand impact, they can shatter under extreme stress, such as a significant collision. Proper repair or replacement helps maintain the windshield's strength and integrity.

Repair times vary based on the extent of the damage. Minor repairs may take around 30 minutes, while replacements might take a few hours. Your technician will provide an estimate based on your specific situation.
For repairs, you can typically drive your vehicle immediately after the process is complete. With replacements, it's best to wait until the adhesive has fully cured, which can take several hours.
