NW Side Window

While most damage to side windows will mean you will need to replace the window, it pays to call National Windscreens and get a rapid response appraisal of your best repair option. Should the window need replacing however, you have the security of knowing you’re getting a competitive price, and the quality of our work is guaranteed for the life of your vehicle.


Do I need to repair or replace?

We understand time and money are important factors. For this reason our rapid response team will always try to repair your existing windscreen before replacing it with a new one. However, the type, size and position of the damage may mean that we recommend that the whole windscreen needs to be replaced.

How do you repair a chip?

A vacuum method is used to draw out air from the damaged area, which is then injected with an acrylic resin. Once set, the resin has a similar strength and transparency to the glass. If your motor insurance covers glass damage, our windscreen chip repair could be carried out free and it won't normally affect your no claims bonus. NW Chip Repairs are a preferred repairer for most major insurance companies and can help you with your insurance claim if you need.

How long can I leave it before getting my windscreen chip replaced?

You should get a windscreen chip repaired as soon as you spot it. 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. Repairing a chip is quicker than replacing a whole windscreen and only takes 30 minutes, saving you time and money. Especially when you call the rapid response team. Remember, if a windscreen chip is in the driver's line of vision, it only has to be bigger than 15mm for your windscreen to fail its registration check.
