It may seem small now, but don’t let it fool you – sooner or later that chip in your windscreen is going to get a whole lot bigger…
Chips and cracks in windscreens happen easily enough – the truck that overtook you on the gravel road, the debris from last night's storm, the stone that flew out from under the mower on the weekend – simple, random acts of wear and tear. But while some may seem benign at first, chips and cracks in your car windscreen will inevitably grow into a bigger problem.
More than just a piece of glass
When you're on the road, your car's windscreen is one of the few things between you and the elements. Rushing wind, rain and hail, dirt, grit, stones, all at 40, 60 or 100 km per hour – your windscreen takes a beating so that you don't have to.
Your windscreen also plays a vital part in the structural integrity of your car, and for newer models, it may even house valuable electronics and sensors.
But your windscreen isn't indestructible. If it's already chipped, a slammed door, an unexpected brush with a bird, fluctuations in temperature, or even the normal vibrations associated with driving, could be all it takes to turn that chip into a far more major problem – and that's something no-one wants to happen at 40, 60 or 100 km per hour…
