Skip site navigation Speedy Glass - Windshield repair and replacement

When is it time to repair auto glass damage and replace a windshield?

We can probably repair a windshield if the damage is no bigger than a $1 coin, is not in the way of the driver’s line of vision, and is located at least 4 cm from the rim.

A windshield replacement is the way to go if:

  • the damage extends to more than 3 points of impact or if it consists of a crack bigger than a $1 coin
  • the damage is an impediment to the driver’s line of vision
  • the damage is located less than 4 cm from the rim

Under normal conditions, you will be able to hit the road right after your windshield has been repaired or your side window replaced. Please note that a 30-minute wait is recommended after the replacement of a windshield.

The person that will have taken care of the work will tell you if more time is needed.

Is it possible to have more than one impact repaired?

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.
