At PG Glass we always first try to repair your existing windscreen before replacing it with a new one, usually saving you both time and money. Sometimes though, the type, size and position of the damage will mean that the whole windscreen needs to be replaced.
The 4 main reasons
A chip can crack at anytime
A windscreen chip could turn into a crack at any time, often when you are least expecting it. If this happens when you are driving, it could have a serious effect on your safety. Your windscreen provides up to 30% of the vehicle's structural strength and the passenger airbag relies on the windscreen to provide support if the airbag deploys. Repairing a chip will result in your windscreen being as strong as before the damage happened.
It only takes 30 minutes Repairing a chip is quicker than replacing a whole windscreen. A windscreen chip can be repaired in under 30 minutes. You can get your chip repaired at either one of our nationwide PG Glass service centres or by requesting one of our service technicians to visit you - at home, at work or wherever you are.
