Windscreens are one of the most important and most visible parts of your car. If it is damaged, not only will it take away from the aesthetics of your vehicle, it can also present a road hazard.
Your windscreen protects you and your passengers from the dangers of the road and the elements. It also serves to help maintain the shape of your car in the event of a rollover. Taking care of it is important as its sole purpose is to take care of you while on the road.
Top Windscreens is here to help if you notice cracks, chips, dents or any other damage to your windscreen. We can also help correct water ingress if the seal around your windscreen is no longer functioning properly. Every problem has a solution when addressed by the professionals. At the same time, there are some myths that keep many people from seeking help in a timely manner. We have put together a small list of common misconceptions and their solutions about windscreen repair.
Small Damage Doesn’t Need Quick Repair
The most damaging myth of all is that minor damage such as small chips or cracks doesn’t need immediate attention. While you can probably wait a day before taking your windscreen in for repair, it is important to address minor damage before it turns into a bigger problem. Small cracks and chips can grow as your car is exposed to the elements and vibrations on the road. What may have started out as a small chip or crack can easily spread across your entire windscreen if left unattended.
It Takes All Day For Windscreen Repair
Repair does not in fact take all day as some people assume. Small damage can be repaired by a mobile unit, or you can bring your car into the repair shop. Minor chips and cracks can be fixed within an hour or two depending on the size and severity. Windscreen replacements take a bit longer, but only because it is safer to let the seal cure before exposing the new windscreen to the elements of vibrations on the road.
Windscreen Repair Increases Insurance Rates
Car insurance rates have a habit of increasing anytime your vehicle suffers damage. That common occurrence may lead people to believe that damage will also cause insurance premiums to skyrocket. Unlike other types of damage, windscreen repair will not cause a change in your regular rates. Chips and cracks are a normal side effect of safe driving which insurance companies understand. In fact, insurance companies will pay for most repairs in order to help you stay safe on the road.
