Looking after your Windscreen

windscreenWindscreen damage

Please attend to any windscreen damage as quickly as possible, as damage may impair your view of the road. In many cases, if a chip is smaller than the size of a pound coin our approved supplier can perform a specialist repair rather than completely replacing the glass. But if left untreated, moisture, frost and dirt can cause the damage to worsen beyond repair.

Chips or cracks in the windscreen directly in front of the driver, in the area swept by the wiper blades, are considered dangerous if they are more than 10mm in diameter. In the rest of the windscreen wiper swept area, up to 40mm damage is acceptable.

Best for the environment

The sooner you call, the more chance there is that the supplier will be able to repair your windscreen. And by repairing a fault rather than replacing the windscreen you are also doing your bit for the environment as it helps to reduce the amount of glass sent for reprocessing, which in turn reduces CO2 emissions.
