Why repair a chip
See below the key reasons why you should get a windscreen chip repaired as soon as you spot it.
The five main reasons
A chip can crack at anytime
A windscreen chip could turn into a crack at any time, often when you are least expecting it. If this happens when you are driving, it could have a serious effect on your safety.
Your windscreen provides up to 30% of the vehicle’s structural strength and the passenger airbag relies on the windscreen to provide support if the airbag deploys. Repairing a chip will result in your windscreen being as strong as before the damage happened.
It only takes 30 minutes
Repairing a chip is quicker than replacing a whole windscreen. A windscreen chip can be repaired in under 30 minutes.
A repair is usually free and may not affect your no claims bonus* if you have a nil excess policy (* you will need to check this with your insurer).If you have fully comprehensive vehicle insurance, or vehicle insurance including cover for glass damage, Mount Gambier Windscreens can usually repair your windscreen for free.
Reduce the risk of failing a registration check
If a windscreen chip is in the drivers line of vision, it only has to be bigger than 15mm for your windscreen to fail its registration check.
