Sponsored - It happened. You blink and there it is... a crack or chip in your windshield. You’ll get it fixed... eventually. You’re just so busy. It may seem like a small crack or chip is an issue to resolve another day, but it is extremely important to take care of those chips and cracks now with the uncertainty of Kentucky weather. Why? Because with extreme heat/cold and large swings in temperature, like it can easily do in the Fall of Kentucky, that small chip or crack could easily become much larger and fast putting you at much more risk.
Experts say that if you’re driving with a damaged windshield, you not only put yourself at risk but other drivers around you as well. During a collision, a damaged windshield could pop out during a collision. The windshield also provides major structural support for your car. A damaged windshield is like taking a load bearing wall in your home and damaging it to the point it not support the roof and it caves in to your home. In this case, the windshield is the wall and the car roof could collapse in on you. The windshield also protects you during an accident, especially in a rollover accident given it is part of the structural integrity of your vehicle.
Most chips can be easily repaired to keep it from spreading and keep you from needing a windshield replacement. The Glass Doctor of Lexington can repair chips up to the size of a quarter and cracks up to 6”. However, if those crackers or chips are in the driver’s line of sight, total replacement is recommended due to safety concerns. The Glass Doctor of Lexington can repair windshields in 15-20 minutes. These are a quick fix but be aware, some cracks can spread during the repair or after it’s done. Chips can be repaired for around $65-95 with additional chips at $15/each at the same time. The Glass Doctor of Lexington recommends if you need more than 3 chips fixed that you replace the windshield because it is much safer and keeps the integrity of your windshield.
Luckily, Kentucky is one of the few states that has a $0 deductible for glass replacement and repair with comprehensive policies because the windshield has been identified as a critical safety feature of vehicles.
