When You Need a New Windshield
Auto glass is strong—stronger than glass used for home windows. As a result, your car’s windshield may sustain a lot of force with minimal damage, so you do not have to replace a windshield every time a rock bounces off of it.
However, chips and cracks add up. You may need a new windshield if:
- Any chip or crack interferes with visibility
- You have more than five chips (at this point, your windshield’s integrity is likely compromised)
- You notice a crack that keeps growing (this will continue, and some crack repair methods can actually worsen the damage)
Sometimes, you may need a new windshield even if the glass is intact. Deteriorated seals and/or poor-quality adhesive may allow air and or water to leak around your windshield.
