When it comes to windshield fixes, the sooner you bring your vehicle to Astro Auto Glass, the better our chances of saving you money with chip, star or crack repair instead of full windshield replacement.
What Makes a Star Chip
There are several types of impact damage your windshield may experience.
Chips and bull’s eyes result when the impact actually removes a small shard of glass.
Stars, on the other hand, typically do not involve the loss of any glass, but small fractures radiate from the point of impact.
Can a Star Windshield Chip Be Repaired?
Stars can often be repaired, but the hairline fractures do make for a challenge. The shorter they are, the easier they are to fill. The more they extend past the central impact site, the more likely that the fill does not reach, and the cracks will continue to grow.
Cracks may be repaired. However, the process to repair windshield cracks can cause more damage. And, if cracks are more than 12” long, the integrity of your windshield is compromised. At that point, we will recommend windshield replacement for your safety.
