A clear windshield is what allows you to navigate the road safely. Too often, people put off repairing their windshield, thinking that it is a minor issue that they can see around. After all, it’s not a flat tire, right? Like any part of maintaining your car, you need to take care of the small problems so that they don’t become larger issues.
Chips can catch the light, causing unexpected glares that interfere with your vision on the road and they can spread into larger cracks that affect the structural integrity of your windshield. Make your safety is a priority, and schedule an appointment at Kral Bros in Lewisville as soon as possible after a windshield chip.
Repair Windshield Chips Quickly
While windshield chips may seem like small problems that you can ignore, they need to be repaired as quickly as possible. The longer you go without repair, the more dirt and debris can fill the chip; then, when the repair is eventually done, the surface will not be as smooth and clean as it could have been.
The windshield chip can also grow into a larger windshield crack, which is much more costly to repair and may involve replacing the entire windshield. A chip can burst into any number of cracks, from a starburst to a single long crack. Cold weather can also cause a windshield chip to break into a larger crack. Most auto insurance covers windshield chips, so there’s no reason not to bring your car into Kral Bros for windshield repair.
Causes of Windshield Chips
Windshield chips can be caused by a variety of things, such as rocks, airborne debris, and mother nature. Sometimes, your windshield can be chipped and you don’t even know until it becomes a larger crack. A lot of customers come to Kral Bros with no idea how their windshield has cracked or chipped, and sometimes a windshield can be installed improperly, causing it to vibrate and crack simply from being out on the road. Factory-installed windshields must meet a high standard of safety and construction, but you need to make sure you’re going to a garage you can trust, like Kral Bros in Lewisville, to make sure that your windshield is properly installed.
Windshield Chip Repair
When you bring your car in for windshield chip repair, a Kral Bros technician will complete the job quickly, often in 30 minutes or less. First, our windshield technician will inspect the windshield to determine what type of repair is needed. This involves investigating the size, depth, and type of windshield chip as well as the amount of debris that has collected in the damaged area. We will then clean and dry the windshield chip before sealing it with a strong resin material that is hardened with UV light. The resin dries clear and blends in with the rest of your windshield glass. We remove any excess resin to ensure a smooth finish.
