Facts about Windshield Chip Repair

Can you repair a windshield Chip by yourself?
Repairing a cracked windshield is also relatively easy, even for amateurs. Typical chip repair kits come with everything you’ll need to patch the dent, including UV-activated epoxy and resin – curing strips; suction plungers; simple scraping tool.
Should I fix a small chip in the windshield?
Even though the damage seems very minor, it is important to repair the chip as soon as possible. If dirt and debris are embedded into the area of this small part around your windshield wipers or even everyday weather like wind storms can force dirt into these chips that make you less effective when repairing them which could lead to an unrepeatable crack on your window!
Is the chip still visible after repairs?
There is always a scar left from the broken glass, even after trapped air has been removed. However, most of our windshield repair jobs turn out looking better than when un-repaired.
How windshield chips are repaired?
The process to repair a windshield chip is generally quick and simple, and it can be performed by most windshield repair technicians.
When a windshield is damaged, it’s important to know how to assess the damage. The technician will first inspect and investigate what type of repair would be best for this situation. This may involve checking out both size and type of chip in addition to debris embedded within that area
Then technician will clean the area of the chip so that, hopefully, no moisture or debris is sealed into the repaired spot. If there is substantial debris in the chipped spot, the repair will result in a cloudy spot on the windshield. This can be a problem if the chip is in the driver’s line of sight.
The chip is sealed with a special resin material which will be hardened by an ultraviolet light. The hardening process results in the clear liquid becoming as solid and blendable to the windshield glass, while any excess resin that dries for too long would have been removed before it had time to spoil your car’s sleek surface.
