The Importance of Windshield Rock Chip Repair
Most windshield damage is caused by pebbles or rocks kicked up by the tire of a passing vehicle, or gravel and rocks falling from gravel or dump trucks. Depending on how hard the impact is, the damage type can vary. Repairing while the damage is small can save you the cost of replacing the windshield and losing the original factory seal.
Most Common Types of Windshield Damage:
Auto and truck windshield are constructed with two pieces of glass and a piece of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) between them. This is known as laminate glass
The PVB helps to keep the glass from shattering into many small pieces. When breakage in a windshield occurs an air gap or crack can open up. Debris, water and fluctuating temperatures can cause the damage to become greater.
Repair or Replace
Repairing rock chip damage is much more cost effective then having to pay for a replacement windshield. Not only will it save you money, you will also save the original factory seal of the windshield, and if repairable, it will keep the windshield out of landfills.
