Do Windshield Chip Repair Kits Really Work?
Windshield chip repair kits are certainly cheap; you can pick one up at an auto parts store for about $10 or so. But, do they really work?
But, keep in mind, you get what you pay for. So, the answer is ‘Yes’ and ‘No’.
While they may work, they will not turn out as well as if done by a professional auto glass technician.
There are tons of instructions online that will guide you through how to insert the filler or epoxy into the chip and save your windshield.
However, keep in mind that once you do it, you cannot undo it…..and neither can anyone else.
We have seen hundreds of customers who come to us with an eye sore of a chip repair asking if we can repair their bad chip repair.
Unfortunately, once that pit filler is inserted into your windshield, it becomes part of the glass. If you try to get it out, you could create more damage or even destroy your windshield.
Should you try a windshield chip repair kit at home? Here are some reasons why we always advise our customers NOT to:
1- Most auto insurance companies will cover windshield chip repair 100%. No deductibles and no rate increase.
Before you spend that 10 bucks and buy the windshield chip repair kit, call your auto insurance company first. If they cover the cost, then you can get it done professionally –for FREE. (read more on free windshield repairs with your insurance company here)
2- Are you a newbie?- If you have never filled a windshield chip on a windshield before, then why try it out on your own windshield and mess it up for life. Remember, it cannot be redone. If you create an eyesore, it cannot be corrected.
