Can My Windshield Be Repaired?

The technicians at Lee Nissan are skilled at repairing damaged windshields. Unfortunately, there are some instances where a windshield’s damage is too extensive to be repaired. Use the general guidelines below to determine whether your windshield will need to be repaired or replaced.

  • Chips smaller than a quarter and cracks shorter than three inches can often be repaired. Larger damage may require a replacement.
  • The location of the damage is critical in determining whether a repair is feasible. Cracks or chips that are in the driver’s line of sight or near the edges of the windshield are more likely to require a replacement. If the damage obstructs the driver’s vision, a replacement is usually necessary.
  • Depth of the Damage: The depth of the damage is another consideration. If the damage is only superficial, such as surface-level chips or scratches, a repair may be sufficient. However, if the damage extends through the inner layer of the windshield or if there is significant delamination, a replacement might be necessary.
