Should I Repair a Chipped Windscreen?
When you notice a chip in your windscreen, you should aim to repair as soon as possible.
If you continue to drive with a chipped windscreen, there is an increasing chance that the chip will cause the windscreen to crack.
Your windscreen provides up to 30% of the vehicle’s structural strength and the passenger airbag relies on the windscreen to provide support if the airbag deploys. Repairing a chip will result in your windscreen being as strong as before the damage happened. You'll save the expense of a replacement windscreen. You will help to protect the environment by repairing and not replacing.
Repairing the chip will improve the appearance of your car and although it won't completely disappear, a repair will be virtually invisible. Depending on your insurance status, you might be entitled to a free windscreen repair.
Will a Chipped Windscreen Cause A MOT Fail?
Even a small windscreen chip within a driver's line of vision could cause a windscreen to fail an MOT test, so drivers hoping to pass their MOT should make sure windscreens are repaired or replaced as necessary before an MOT test takes place.
The safety of you and your passengers is paramount, so don’t delay, book the best windscreen repair from GlasWeld today.
