Things out of our control happen all the time and there is nothing more frustrating than having to have your vehicle repaired. Maybe you got caught in a hail storm, something fell on your vehicle or a rock flew up while driving on the highway but cracks or chips in your windshield can ruin anyone's day. At first, a crack or chip may seem insignificant but cracks can spread and become worse and there are laws against driving with a cracked or chipped windshield. Do you need windshield repair or an entire windshield replacement? Those are questions we can help you with at Arlington Toyota. Contact us today to talk with a service technician to see how our collision center can be of service.
Do I Need a Windshield Replacement?
Whether you can get away with a repair or need an entire replacement depends on the severity of the chip or crack and the location. Generally, if a chip is larger than a quarter or the crack is longer than three inches, we recommend a total windshield replacement. The location is also important to consider as a chip or crack can impede your vision when you're driving which is unsafe and actually depending on the state against the law. Your windshield actually moves depending on the changing temperature which causes cracks to spread so even if it is the smallest crack or chip it is important to have it looked at and repaired as soon as possible.
