A limit of three (3) impact points can be repaired. In the event your windshield shows over three of them, this means that its strength could be jeopardized. For safety purposes, a windshield replacement will be necessary.

Why does it matter where the impact occurred?
If the driver’s line of vision is where the impact occurred, this means damage repair is possible. However, it would be preferable to have the windshield replaced considering that your visibility is involved. If the impact happened too close to the vehicle body, it is not possible to repair the damage using the equipment required, which will result in having your windshield replaced.
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.
