The short version: Our cost £62.40 and you can simply order a chip repair now.
The bad news is you’ve cracked your windshield, and it’s a rather important part of the car, not only for protection against the elements for you, your passengers and anything inside your vehicle, but it’s also an important part of the structural integrity of the car as a whole.
You can see why it’s important to repair damage to your windscreen, be it a chip or a crack or anything worse than that.
The good news, however is, yes, it’s one of the simpler repairs you can make on your vehicle, provided you catch it on time and prevent it from getting any worse.
Taking the vehicle in to be inspected and repaired as quickly as possible can prevent you from incurring further costs. The procedure should only take about 30 minutes to an hour , and it consists of injecting resin into the damaged area and sealing it to make it appear as if it never happened! The cost should only run you between £60 to £75.
It’s best to shop around for the best price, but also pay attention to the reviews each dealership receives. You may wish to consult your mechanic or auto dealership as to which glass repair services they would recommend. Whatever gives you peace of mind, so long as you get the damage repaired before it gets any worse.
While it’s never fun to have to pay for auto repairs, and it’s inconvenient especially if the damage isn’t your fault, it’s going to cost a lot less to fix the damage than to replace a windshield entirely.
