5 Reasons to Fix Windshield Rock Chips


In the event that you were recently driving behind a semi truck and it shot a rock back into your windshield, there's a good chance that it left you with a rock chip. While the damage might not appear to be a huge deal, you'll still want to get it taken care of quickly so that your field of vision is not impaired and so the chip doesn't continue to grow to the extent that windshield replacement becomes necessary. Here's a look at five benefits of getting windshield rock chips repaired.

Clear Field of Vision

Not only is this important to the safety of you and those with whom you're sharing the road, but driving with a cracked windshield that impairs your visibility is actually a ticketable offense in the state of Arizona.

Safety During Accident

In the unfortunate event that you're involved in a collision, the odds of your windshield shattering could be increased with the presence of rock chips.

Fast and Convenient Repairs

Oftentimes, rock chip repair can be completed in only a half an hour or so, allowing you to get in and out of the shop quickly.

Avoid Windshield Replacement

With rock chips that have a diameter less in size than that of a quarter, repairs can typically be done quickly. However, if the repairs are delayed and the chip grows larger than that size, then the replacement of your windshield may very well be needed.

Insurance Coverage

It's common for insurance plans to cover rock chip repairs. By choosing a reputable shop, you can receive assistance with any insurance issues that may arise when navigating that bureaucracy.
