A stone chip in your car's windshield isn't just an eyesore, it's the start of a crack that could eventually lead to the need for a full windshield replacement. So, can a glass splinter be repaired? The answer is yes and no. You may be able to patch it up temporarily, but it's not a permanent solution. Repairing a glass splinter requires a certain level of experience and technical knowledge, as well as specialized, high-quality tools that meet international safety protocols.
If you have a stone chip, it's best to contact the experts right away. If the chip is small enough, there's a good chance we can inject resin into it and stop it from spreading. We guarantee that if the chip does break later or while we're filling it up, we'll refund the cost to replace it completely. However, if debris, dirt, or other particles become embedded in the chip area, the repair process becomes much more difficult and sometimes ineffective. So if you're wondering whether you should repair a stone chip right away or wait until later, here are some of the advantages of repairing it immediately.
The longer you wait before repairing a chip, the more time and money you'll have to invest in either repairing or replacing your windshield. First, the technician will inspect the glass chip to determine its type.
