When a vehicle rolls over or when it crashes head-on, the windshield is largely responsible for keeping the vehicle’s structural strength as it makes up to 30% of its structure. On top of that, the windshield allows for the airbags to be properly deployed to make sure the passengers are protected. A brand-new, well-installed windshield helps the vehicle regain its structural strength. It’s something that should not be overlooked.

Can my windshield break into pieces?
It is improbable because the glass of the windshield is protected from breaking into pieces due to the laminated glass and the polyvinyl butyral plastic compound it is made of.
Can I be assured that the chip will not show after the repair of my windshield?
Unfortunately, no. Having a windshield chip repaired will prevent additional damage from occurring on the glass while bringing back the vehicle’s structural integrity. You might also notice a small flaw on the location of the impact, which is normal. But most often, the look of your windshield will be greatly enhanced. Should you believe otherwise, we will give you a credit that you can use to pay for a new windshield or we can send it to your insurance company following a claim upon a windshield replacement.
