We take pride in our work and repairs at ACR Auto Glass. That’s why we want to share our process for repairing chips and small cracks in windshields. Something that differentiates us from the competition and DIY kits is we cure the resin while under pressure to eliminate any air bubbles that could arise.

Why should I fix the chip or crack in my windshield if it’s small?

It ultimately comes down to being a safety hazard. A chip or crack in your windshield damages the structural integrity of the glass, causing it to be more vulnerable to further damage. This is why it is recommended to get a chip or crack repaired soon after it occurs. Below is how we assess and repair any chips or cracks in your windshield.

Assessing The Damage to Your Windshield

The first thing we do before starting a repair is to assess the damage to see if we can repair it or if the windshield needs to be replaced. Generally, cracks up to three inches long and stone chips smaller than a loonie are repairable.
