Chip Repairs

Chipped Windscreen?

If you find a chip in your windscreen and the damage is smaller than a 5 cent piece then it can be repaired before it spreads into a crack that cannot be repaired. So you should act quickly once you spot any chips and call National Windscreens for the fastest repair possible. Being the Response Team we will strive to repair your windscreen today and save you time and money.

Do I need to repair or replace? – We understand time and money are important factors. For this reason our 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 is a chip repaired? – 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. National Windscreens 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 wait before getting it repaired? – 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. 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.
