3 Reasons to Get Your Chipped Windshield Repaired Immediately, Honolulu, Hawaii

Most drivers will eventually experience the frustration of driving along peacefully when a small rock hits the windshield, leaving a chip in the glass. The auto glass specialists at Roy's Auto Glass Shop in Honolulu, HI, warn that failing to take your vehicle in for repair on a chipped windshield can be a costly mistake.

Here are three reasons you shouldn’t put off an auto glass repair:

  • Chipped Windshields Crack Easily: The longer you ignore repairing a small chip in your windshield, the greater risk it has of spreading and impairing your vision as you drive. A tiny chip can be fixed in a matter of minutes with a sealant and a curing process at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop, but a large crack will require the entire windshield to be replaced.
  • chipped windshieldDebris Makes It Worse: It’s inevitable that dirt and other debris will find its way into a chipped windshield, made worse by the force of windshield wipers embedding it with every swipe. This can make an easy and quick repair more difficult, and can eventually necessitate a full windshield replacement.
  • Compromised Car Structure: Windshields function as more than a barrier between you and other elements. They stabilize the structure of your car, helping to hold airbags in place and protect you in the event of a collision. No matter how small a chip is, it can cause your windshield to shatter more quickly upon impact.

Roy's Auto Glass Shop offers auto glass repairs and complete replacement when needed. If you’ve experienced a chipped windshield, call the experts at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop at (808) 845-7484 for an appointment today. You can also learn more about their services on their website.
