Your windshield is much more than a piece of glass: it’s an essential part of your car's safety equipment. But despite its strength, cracks are a common problem. They may appear as starbursts, with cracks extending outwards in different directions, or there may be a single crack. In any case, you should repair your windscreen as soon as possible to avoid having to replace your entire windscreen, which can prove expensive.
If you notice a crack or chip in your windscreen, there are three factors to consider: its size, its position and how long the damage has been present. In the majority of cases, a professional can quickly and easily repair a windscreen if the chip damage has been caused by a small stone.

To ensure your safety and that of your loved ones, consult a car windscreen replacement and repair specialist in the event of a crack or break to determine the best course of action.
