Windshield Surface Chip – Should It Be Repaired?
Got a small windshield surface chip but not sure if it needs to be repaired or not? Read on to find out more about that pesky surface chip.
Should My Windshield Surface Chip Be Repaired?
Car windshields are made of two planes of glass with laminate in the middle.
Windshield chips that should be repaired run deep enough to make contact with the laminate. You will usually see a shadow beneath the chip or spider legs protruding from it. These kinds of chips can easily transform into a long crack and destroy your windshield.
However, windshield surface chips are merely cosmetic and do not need to be repaired. A windshield surface chip is basically a small notch or ding in the glass. It runs very shallow in the glass does not destroy the integrity of the windshield.
