Here at Road Runner Windscreens, we always prefer windscreen repair over replacement whenever it is a practical and safe option. This process not only prevents a damaged windscreen from getting worse but is also a more cost-effective and speedier solution to fitting a new screen. In the majority of cases, it only takes us 15 to 20 minutes to complete our windscreen repair and costs around one-fifth of a new replacement. If you have mild to moderate damage, get in touch with our team today to discuss repair options.
Even if you think your windscreen damage is very minor, it is still important that you have it repaired as soon as possible. Cracks and chips generally grow with changes in the temperature. Today’s front windscreens won't shatter as they did in the old days; instead, they crack, and if left unattended they may present a safety hazard due to the weakened glass. This reduces the overall integrity of the vehicle in terms of how it would perform during a collision and it may also affect the ability of the windscreen to resist airbags, should they be activated. Not to mention, some cracks may also hinder your ability to adequately view out of the front windscreen while you’re driving.
