Cracked Windscreen – Repair or Replace?

Just a few years ago, a cracked windscreen meant replacement. At Fleet Motorglass, we have the expertise and technology to repair as well as replace your cracked windscreen. Small chips leading to minor cracks can often be repaired, however, if the damage is severe, we suggest replacing it.

Repair or Replace – Your Choice

Whether your windscreen has to be repaired or replaced depends on many factors, such as the size of the crack, the location and the severity of the crack. At Fleet Motorglass, we use the latest technology and materials to repair cracks, circular “bullseye” damage and star-shaped breaks on windscreens. We use the pound coin rule; if the crack or the damage is not bigger than the diameter of a pound coin, we do not recommend replacing the windscreen. We have skilled glaziers, who can repair cracks and damages within 30 minutes; and if your insurance policy covers the repairs, you will not have to deal with any out-of-pocket expenses.

When doing windscreen repairs, we ensure that the best quality materials are used. The quality of our repair-work has always exceeded the satisfaction of our customers. In fact, it has helped their vehicles pass an MOT, post repair-work.

If the crack is huge, it can compromise the performance and strength of the glass, and we usually recommend windscreen replacements during such circumstances. By replacing a severely damaged windscreen, you prevent an accident, dirt and grime from entering into your vehicle. We keep a wide range of windscreens in stock, so replacement work can also be done fairly quickly and easily. In case of a comprehensive vehicle insurance cover, you will not have to worry about the cost of replacement, and we would also be quite glad to do the paperwork for your insurance company.

Do not let a cracked windscreen cause you problems during MOT or while driving. Instead, make sure you deal with the crack immediately, regardless of how small or big it is. Contact us at Fleet Motorglass today to find out how our professional windscreen repair and replacement services can help you out.

We would be happy to answer any question or address doubts, so that you make an informed decision when it comes to choosing between repairing or replacing the cracked windscreen. You also can send us an enquiry through our website, and we will arrange a call back immediately.
