- I am not exactly sure if my windshield can be repaired. Specifically, what am I looking for as a candidate for repair?
Most importantly, you want to make sure the damaged area is no larger than 1 1/4 inches or 3cm. Damage to your windshield that is greater than 1 1/4 inches or 3 cm., when repaired, can become unstable. Additionally, a large pit may spread during the repair process, growing worse under the high pressure needed to inject the damaged area. Certainly, the best way to determine if we can repair the damage, is to stop by our shop to have a Preferred representative examine the break.
- How clear will my chip or pit be after repair?
The damaged area will significantly clear after the repair. When cured, the polymer that is injected into the pit closely resembles the clarity of glass. It should be noted, the chip does not "disappear," but rather "hides." You will see something more like a shadow of where the pit was, with an approximate expected clarity of 75% - 95% from the original damage. The main objective in having an area repaired is stopping it from spreading further and cracking glass.
