Can You Fix a Cracked Windscreen?

A crack on a car windshield can seem like a big deal, but it can be fixed quite easily and quickly if it’s caught early and isn’t too extensive. Modern car windshields are laminated and can withstand cracking without shattering. However, not all cracks are the same. It’s essential to get expert advice and services. If your windshield crack can be fixed, our team will repair it using a special patented repair device and resin to seal and restrengthen the damaged area.

The resin gets pushed all the way through the crack and then hardened using a UV light tool. Once the resin is dry, we clean and polish the windscreen to remove any excess resin and ensure a smooth finish. This whole process takes as little as 30 minutes, meaning you can get back on the road in no time.

 

Can You Drive with a Cracked Windscreen?

You should avoid driving with a cracked windscreen as the smallest bumps and knocks from the road can make the crack significantly worse. Once the crack is a certain length, is within the viewing range of the driving or within 5cm of the edge of the windscreen, it can no longer be repaired and will need replacement. Fortunately, we offer a mobile windscreen crack repair service so you can eliminate the need to drive in order to get your windscreen fixed.
