Why a Windshield Chip or Crack is Still Slightly Visible After Being Filled

If you have a crack or chip in your windshield, you will want to get it repaired quickly. This can preserve the integrity of the windshield and prevent further damage. However, upon seeing the repair, you may be a bit concerned. Most of the time, you can still see the crack, chip or star where the windshield was damaged. This may leave you wondering why you needed a repair when the damage is still visible. Here are a few frequently asked questions you may have about this topic.

Why Can You Still See a Crack or Chip After it Was Repaired?

When a windshield repair is done, a small amount of clear resin is injected into the chip, crack or star. This simply fills up the crack or chip with a material that helps prevent it from cracking further. It does not disguise or hide the damage. There is no product that will do that. This is the reason why you need to replace your windshield if the damage is in your line of vision while driving.

Why Should You Repair the Windshield if the Damage is Still Visible?

Repairing a crack or chip helps to prevent that crack or chip from growing in size. It does not hide the flaw in your glass. If you decided not to repair a crack, the crack would grow as glass expands and contracts in hot and cold temperatures or as your car vibrates when it hits potholes or you play your music loudly. This is why it is important to fill in these items, even if the damage is visible.

Is There Any Way to Hide a Crack?

At this time, the only way to hide imperfections in your auto glass is to replace the glass, rather than to repair it. However, it is important to note that some repairs help hide the flaw better than others. For example, a filled in chip will be less visible than a repaired star. Always keep this factor in mind when deciding whether to repair or replace the windshield. If you don't want to see any flaws, windshield replacement is the better option for you.

When you have a chip or crack in your windshield, it is important that it get repaired quickly. This helps to ensure that the crack or chip won't spread. If it does, your windshield may need to be completely replaced, rather than just repaired.
