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

What is involved in a windshield repair?
The process consists in the pressurized introduction of a product into the chip, leading to the restoration of the windshield to its original strength and fewer visible signs of damage.
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.
