At Freedom Glass Company, we are well-versed in damaged windshields. Our team knows that a cracked windshield is often a source of anxiety for drivers, or parents of new drivers, and we will do everything we can to ease those anxieties and make sure your car is safe to drive. Depending on the extent of the damage, we will recommend a windshield repair or a full replacement. While it’s best to trust the experts when it comes to car safety, these questions can help you get a sense of how serious the problem is before you consult with us:

  • How large is the damaged area? The size of the damaged area of a windshield has a big impact on whether it needs to be replaced or if it can be repaired. Typically, if the damaged spot is smaller than a dollar bill, it can be repaired. Anything larger than that and a replacement may be in order.
  • How many cracks or chips are there? Related to the first point, the number of damage sites also affects the likelihood that windshield repair will be sufficient or if a replacement is warranted. If you have three or fewer chips, it’s likely that a repair is enough to restore your car to a safe driving condition. More than three chips, however, can leave your windshield susceptible to shattering without warning.
  • Where is the damage located? Another important factor is the location of the damage. Specifically, if the damaged area is in the driver’s sightline, the windshield should be replaced. No matter how good the repair job, even a small crack or chip will leave a mark that can impair the driver’s vision. Another problem spot that make windshield repair a less effective solution is the corners of the windshield. While not in the driver’s line of vision, damage in the corners can make the glass unstable and liable to break or shatter unexpectedly.

Any amount of damage to your windshield, in any location, can make your car unsafe to drive. If your windshield is damaged, you should have our technicians at Freedom Glass Company assess it as soon as possible. We can give you a comprehensive quote for windshield repair or replacement as necessary.
