Your windshield is an integral part of your vehicle that offers multiple benefits. It provides structural support for your car and protects the occupants from environmental risks and accidents.
Windshield Chips Can Occur At Any Time
With regular vehicle use, there is always a risk of a chip happening in your windshield’s glass. A chip happens when an object, or a rock impacts your windscreen, nicking the glass and resulting in a small and damaged spot.
In most cases, this happens when the tyres of vehicles in front of you kick up flying debris behind them. Also at times, small rocks can fall out of dump trucks and other vehicles.
A chip on your windshield may be a little spot that’s not easily noticeable. But you’ll know when they occur due to the loud and popping sound at impact.
Why You Need to Act Fast When Damage Occurs
Even when the damage seems minor, it’s imperative to repair the chip as soon as possible. If dirt and debris get stuck in this spot, a repair will become less effective or impossible.
Weather and windscreen wipers can force dirt and debris to this spot. The windshield cleaning fluid has dyes, which may discolour the area. All of this will affect the quality of the repair exercise.

Windshield Chip Repair Process
Here is how we’ll repair a chip on your windshield.
- Inspect: First, our technician will inspect your windscreen to ascertain the feasibility of a windshield chip repair. The assessment will focus on the type and the size of a chip. It will also look at the amount of debris deposited into this area.
- Prepare: After this, we’ll clean the area to ensure no dirt, debris or moisture is sealed in the repaired area. If there are dirt and debris in this area, the exercise results in a dark spot on your windshield. If this is going to be the case, we may not proceed and will advise as needed.
