Chips Can Grow into Cracks | Windshield Repair

A small chip in your windshield may not look like much, but it’s best to call for windshield repair before the ding becomes something much bigger.

You were coming home from work last night when the car in front of you kicked up some gravel from the roadway. Of course, it hit your windshield and now you have a small chip. It’s so small, you’re thinking you can ignore it and go ahead to the Modesto Farmers Market with no concerns.

No and yes.

No, you shouldn’t ignore the chip, no matter how small. If you ignore it, it could get worse and create a major problem so that you’d end up having a windshield replacement instead of a windshield repair done.

“For the best chip repair possible, in which the windshield is left very smooth and clear, the repair should be done within a few days after the damage occurs. Left alone, a chip can often burst into a pattern of tiny cracks, or even grow into one long crack,” says. adds, “If the chip is repaired promptly, the car owner can avoid a more costly repair and the original factory seal around the windshield can be left intact. This is especially important to remember when a chip occurs near the outside edge of the windshield. Once the resulting crack gets too close to the edge, it may not be repairable.”
