Driving with a chip or crack on your windscreen can be dangerous. It can limit your view of the road and during a car accident it can cause the glass to shatter. Both instances are dangerous for everyone inside of the vehicle which is why you should make sure to repair any damage to your windscreen as soon as possible.
When your windscreen gets damaged, your first call should be to our quick service repair agents here at My Windscreen London. We are happy to give you a quote for our services or come out to your location to get you back on the road. In the meantime, here are four things you should keep in mind when it comes to windscreen repair.
There are plenty of do-it-yourself repair kits on the market, but they will never offer the same security as a professional job. In addition, you may end up causing more damage to your glass which may result in the need for a total replacement. Hiring an expert repair service ensures that your windscreen is repaired with the right equipment and materials.
Chips or cracks on windscreens can greatly affect the structural integrity of the entire glass. Professional repair services use high-grade urethane adhesive to seal the glass and restore its strength. High-quality urethane adhesive is costly but worth it since it allows your glass to meet crash test certification. There are some low-end repair shops that use less than the best quality glue and glass in their repairs. This can result in a windscreen that offers little to no protection for you and your passengers. It can be tempting to save a few dollars by going to a budget repair shop, but do you really want to risk the safety of your friends and family?
When it comes to having your windscreen repaired, you should only work with a company you trust. Ask your family members and your friends for recommendations if they have used a repair service in the past. You can even call your insurance provider to get a list of local windscreen repairs shops that are on their list of approved vendors. My Windscreen London is a fully licensed and reputable glass repair company that has been serving the metro area for generations.
