A small chip in your windscreen can quickly spread causing more costly damage if left un-repaired. Many motorists wrongly assume that fixing a crack or chip in their windscreen means replacing the entire piece of glass. In reality most chips and cracks can be repaired.
Your windscreen plays a vital role in safety, accounting for up to 30% of your vehicle’s structural strength. Damage can lower the strength of the windscreen and can possibly reduce the effectiveness of passenger airbags, which rely on the support of the windscreen to deploy correctly.
And of course, a chipped or cracked windscreen may cause your vehicle to fail its MoT.
