Signs You Need Your Windshield Replaced
A small windshield crack or chip is typically no cause for major concern; however, more significant damage may be best addressed via windshield replacement. Because your windshield is one of your vehicle’s most important safety features, knowing when to replace it will ensure that you and your passengers enjoy a safe and comfortable ride every time you get behind the wheel.
- Small windshield cracks and chips are best suited to windshield repair. However, if a crack is longer than 1.25 inches or intersects more than one edge of your windshield, it may warrant replacement of the entire windshield to restore the glass’ integrity.
- Any significant crack or chip that actively obscures your line of vision, even if the damage is relatively small, may be cause for windshield replacement. This is because obstructions of any size in your line of view can slow your response time while driving.
- Even if your windshield is not actually broken, severe or widespread pitting and hazing is a sign that you should have your windshield replaced for better visibility, particularly when driving at night.
