our car’s windscreen does more than just shield the wind. It also prevents flying debris from coming into your car while driving. With laminated safety glass your windscreen can withstand quite substantial impacts from flying rocks that may be kicked up from other car tyres when travelling on the road. However all it takes it a stone travelling at a certain angle with the right amount of force and you could encounter a stone chip on your windscreen.
Metro Auto Glass use the latest technology to perform stone chip repairs on your vehicle’s windshield. However we can only perform this type of repair on small chips so it is vital that you contact us as soon as your realise you have one.
Untreated small windscreen chips can quickly grow into large cracks and when your chip grows larger than a $1 coin it is beyond repair. Your only option at this point is to request a full windscreen replacement.
Many people continue driving with small stone chips in their windscreen. However as you travel down the road all the vibrations in your car put stress on the glass. This stress can easily cause the chip to turn into a small crack. Further vibration causes this crack to extend the whole length of your windscreen. Unfortunately this can all happen in a matter of seconds.
