What to do When Your Windshield is Chipped

Have you ever been driving along when suddenly something strikes your windshield? You don't know what it was or where it came from; you only know that it left a chip in your windshield. Unsettling though it may be, the staff here at Lithia Reno Subaru wants you to be aware of what to do if you're ever in this situation.

The first step is to have your windshield examined by a reputable repair technician. The cost of repair will be less than having to replace the entire windshield. Upon examination, the technician will be able to tell you the type of chip that has occurred and if it can be fixed. There are four distinct types of chips. These are Combination, Half Moon, Star, and Bulls Eye. If it's determined that the windshield can be fixed, then the process of repair entails the air being forced from the windshield and replaced by resin. As this resin settles, the windshield will be stronger though not as strong as before the damage. It will also leave a mark. The hope is that it's barely noticeable.
