Stone Chip Repair
We will always first try to repair your windscreen before replacing it with a new one, however sometimes the type, size and position of the damage will mean that a stone chip repair is not possible and you will need a windscreen replacement instead.
What is the maximum size for a stone chip repair?
We will always attempt to repair your chipped windscreen, but this depends on the size of the damage and the position of the damage to the windscreen as to whether a stone chip repair can be carried out or if a replacement windscreen is required.
Typically if all of the damage caused by the stone chip can be covered by a 20p coin then the windscreen can be repaired.
However, there are further factors to consider other than the size of the chip - If the stone chip is within 1.5 inches of the edge of the windscreen a repair cannot be carried out because this part of the windscreen is too weak…
Stone Chip Repair: How much does it cost?
Some motor insurance policies offer free stone chip repair but if you don’t have stone chip repair cover on your policy, a stone chip repair costs as little as £40 + VAT so get it repaired before it turns in to costly replacement.
