Repairing a Windshield Chip on Your Vehicle

As a seasoned vehicle owner, you realize that owning one is a serious responsibility. Properly maintaining your auto is not only good for you, but also good for others on the road as well. That is one of the reasons why a chip on your windshield is so disconcerting. We here at Gillman Honda San Benito know that, and we know you definitely don’t want it to develop into a crack, so what should you do? Fortunately, even if you are budget-conscious, there are many avenues available for repairing this issue. One way would be to inject the chip with a liquid resin. Here are some advantages to this method:

The resin makes it less likely for the chip to widen out into a crack.

Naturally, if the chip eventually becomes a crack, about your only recourse would be to get the entire windshield replaced. However, one of the things this resin will do is to bond to the damaged glass within the chip and strengthen it, making it less likely to become a crack and extending the life of your windshield. Some insurance companies may waive the fee for a chip repair.

Even though the price of a chip repair is already fairly reasonable, there are a number of insurance companies that will pay for the chip repair themselves. Just bring in your insurance card at the time of the repair.

We here at Gillman Honda San Benito realize you might have many questions regarding chip repairs. Rest assured, we can answer all of your questions and help fix this unsightly windshield chip. Call us today.
