Weathering Windshield Chip Repair

Temperature Fluctuations Spread Cracks
  • Spring often brings daily temperature fluctuations of as much as 20 degrees. These also occur after a cold night and you crank on the heat in the morning to defrost the windshield.
  • As the windshield and its frame expand and contract differently with temperature changes, stresses develop in the glass and become focused at the windshield's weakest point, namely a chip.
  • When the stresses become too great, they are released as a crack.

Chip Repair, Just The Ticket To Avoid Tickets

A windshield chip or crack is often a ticketable

A Quick, Essentially Free Fix

Most insurance companies will waive your deductible and cover the minimal cost of a chip repair to avoid future expenses.

Many retailers also offer low or discounted "cash" pricing for chip repairs.

Chip repair takes only 15-20 minutes and is a permanent fix. If the damage is smaller than a dollar bill it is most likely repairable.

Types Of Damage To Look Out For



Windshield Chips are usually small notches or grooves in the glass. Chips do not continue completely through the glass.

Windshield Cracks are curved or straight lines that extend across the windshield. They can also exist on only one side of the windshield.



Windshield Bulls Eyes are circular windshield cracks and fractures that look similar to a target of concentric circles.

Windshield Star Breaks extend from a central point of damage with long cracks.

The Bottom Line

It pays to get cracks and chips repaired as soon as possible. Both for safety and for saving money. An essentially free fix could wind up costing you hundreds of dollars in deductible costs if the crack spreads too far.
