The sheer size of an RV’s windshield makes it more likely to get hit by debris from large tractor trailers and open-bed commercial haulers. So, RV windshields are more likely to get chipped. You can prevent small chips from growing into big problems with RV rock chip repair from Astro Auto Glass.
The Benefits of Rock Chip Repair
Rock chips are among the most common type of RV windshield damage. They are the result of a small piece of glass being removed after impact by a rock or other road debris.
When done immediately, rock chip repair prevents the growth of cracks radiating out from the pit, and that affords RV owners a number of benefits, including:
- Clear windshield visibility
By isolating damage to the chip site, you prevent your visibility from being impaired by cracks or stars that increase glare and/or distort what you see through your windshield.
- Crash protection
Filling the chip site restores the strength of your windshield so that it can provide the same level of protection in the event of an accident.
- Cost savings
Chip fills are significantly less expensive than crack repairs and windshield replacements—on average, $30/chip vs $1,000 or more.
Rock chip repairs can also be completed faster than other types of repairs, letting you get back to your travel as planned more quickly.
