Repairing your windshield crack is safe, perminant, and usually a fraction of the cost compared to replacing the glass.
There are several reasons to have your windshield repaired instead of replaced.
Crack repairs are cost-effective.
Repairing a long crack in your windshield is often more cost-effective than replacing the entire glass. This is especially true for vehicles equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), as replacing the windshield can be significantly more expensive due to the need to recalibrate the systems. Repairing a crack can prevent it from spreading and causing further damage, potentially saving you from replacing the entire windshield. Additionally, windshield repair is quicker and less time-consuming than windshield replacement, which means less downtime for your vehicle. Not only is repairing a crack in your windshield a cost-effective option, but it can also help ensure the safety and functionality of your vehicle's ADAS systems, which rely on a clear and unobstructed view of the road.
Your repair will have a scar, but repairs typically look much better.
Once a windshield crack is repaired, it is essential to remember that the damage may still be slightly visible. The main objective of the repair is to restore the structural integrity of the glass and is not cosmetic. This is accomplished by drilling a small hole at the end to terminate the crack and filling the damage with a specially designed resin that bonds with both surrounding layers of glass and the layer of plastic (PVB) in the middle. This process must be done by a trained professional and can not be done with a do-it-yourself kit. Once the resin cures, the repaired area becomes the strongest part of the glass. Even though the repair will be slightly visible, it will not jeopardize the safety or functionality of the windshield. Overall, while the appearance of the crack may not be completely eliminated, a repair will significantly enhance the glass's strength and appearance.
