Although it may seem premature, it’s essential to seek professional windshield repairs at the earliest possible stage of damage. If you’ve noticed a chip in your glass, here are three reasons why you should have it examined immediately:

  • Financial Savings: Paying to fix a small issue is more cost effective than waiting until the damage has spread throughout. A small chip can quickly lead to cracked or shattered glass, and the necessary windshield replacement cost will greatly surpass that of a chip repair. And with Autoglass Xpress’s mobile windshield repair services, preventing a costly replacement is easier than ever. Simply call these glass experts, and they’ll bring their services to you!
  • windshield repairSplinter Potential: Once a small piece of debris has caused your windshield to chip, that chip is only one flying pebble away from splintering into a full-on crack. And if your windshield is cracked, driving at high speeds can be extremely dangerous, and you’ll need to shell out for a windshield replacement in order to use your car to its full potential. Your best bet is to fix the chip before it can develop into a serious fracture.
  • Insurance Effect: Yet another reason to seek out windshield repairs after a small chip? Your insurance policy. If you act quickly and schedule a repair right after the chip occurs, your insurance will most likely cover the cost of the windshield repairs without changing your rate. However, if you wait until a windshield replacement is needed, your insurance rate may increase.

The next time a stone causes your car’s glass to chip, call Autoglass Xpress for fast, mobile windshield repairs and lasting results. Visit their website for more information on their auto glass repair services.
