What to do if You Get a Chip in Your Windshield

As a valued customer of MINI of Charleston, there are a number of things that we would like you to be aware of. We know that unexpected things happen, such as a rock causing chip damage to your windshield. In such a case we want you to be fully aware of your options.

If your windshield is ever damaged in this manner while driving around town, then it will come in one of four types. These chip damage types are Half Moon, Combination, Bulls Eye, and Star. You will want to check to see if it's beyond repair. If it is, then your only recourse is to replace the whole windshield. If it can be fixed, that's a cheaper option.

The process of fixing a chip in your windshield involves technology that extracts the air from your windshield then replaces it with a resin. This process will greatly strengthen the windshield compared to not fixing it. If won't be like an undamaged windshield, however. The will also be a scar or blemish left behind that is, hopefully, only slightly visible.
