Windshield maintenance should never be delayed. Just because they are sturdy doesn’t mean they can be overlooked. However, a crack not in the line of sight for the driver and no bigger than a dollar bill can be repaired for less than $100. As such, any cracks should be taken of immediately. Don’t expect the repair to be perfect, only 75-90 percent of clarity is retaken typically.

As repairing a windshield involves resin patches, it can be attempted by yourself, if necessary. You can get a repair kit at any automobile maintenance supplier. You can’t expect professional quality, but you can save some bucks this way. Do this if it’s in a less-than-strategic location. The repair process is done to prevent the crack getting larger and necessitating a costlier repair. As such, be sure to handle windshield damage ASAP.
