Auto and Semi-Truck Windshield Repair in Indianapolis and Across Indiana

A rock chip in your car or semi-truck’s windshield can be dangerous for several reasons:

  • Visibility impairment — Even a small rock chip can distort your view of the road, potentially obstructing your vision and making it difficult to see obstacles, pedestrians, or other vehicles. This impairment increases the risk of accidents, especially in situations requiring quick reactions.
  • Risk of cracking — A rock chip weakens the structural integrity of the windshield. Changes in temperature, road vibrations, or additional impacts can cause the chip to expand into a larger crack. Once the crack spreads, it becomes more difficult and costly to repair, and it may eventually require windshield replacement.
  • Compromised structural integrity — Like cracks, rock chips can compromise the windshield’s ability to withstand impacts. In the event of a collision or rollover, a weakened windshield may not provide adequate protection for the occupants, increasing the risk of injury or ejection.
  • Interference with airbag deployment — The windshield plays a crucial role in the deployment of airbags during a collision. A rock chip can weaken the windshield, causing it to shatter or fail to support the airbag deployment properly. This can lead to less effective protection for the occupants.
  • Legal concerns — Driving with a windshield chip that obstructs the driver’s view may be illegal in many jurisdictions. This could result in fines or citations if law enforcement deems it a hazard.

Overall, addressing a rock chip promptly is essential for maintaining your vehicle’s safety and windshield’s structural integrity. Repairing the chip as soon as possible can prevent it from spreading into a larger crack and help ensure clear visibility and optimal protection for you and your passengers.

Professional Auto and Semi-Truck Glass Repair Services

Before every trip, a responsible driver like you does all the safety checks on your car. You ensure enough gas in your tank for the entire journey. Then, you check the fluids to prevent your car from breaking down on the road. You also check your tire air pressure from point A to B for perfect handling.

Good. But while these checks ensure your and your passengers’ safety, you might be overlooking another critical component: your car or semi-truck’s windshield.

Why Is It Important to Check Your Auto Glass?

A chipped windshield can make a car less safe to drive, and it can quickly spread. A windshield provides structural support for a vehicle, and if it’s chipped, the windshield is more likely to fail in a collision. This means that your airbags may inflate outward instead of inward, which could leave you with little protection.

Here are some other reasons why a rock chip in your auto or semi-truck’s windshield is bad:

  • Chips can spread: Minor collisions and sudden movements can cause a chip to spread and cause more damage. A small chip can quickly become a three-inch crack across your windshield.
  • Chips can compromise structural integrity: Chips degrade a vehicle’s structural integrity.

Windshield Glass Rock Chip Repair

Don’t let rock chips in your windshield ruin your driving experience. A skilled technician can expertly perform a rock chip repair, filling the chip with resin to prevent it from spreading, restoring the integrity of your glass. You should repair a chip before it has a chance to get worse.

If the chip(s) is the same size as a quarter or smaller, it can often be repaired. We use advanced sealing technology with the right materials, tools, resin, and finishing to fix the chip(s) on your windshield to prevent it from cracking or spreading. The repair does not always remove the blemish but will keep the impact point from spreading. In the unlikely event that your rock chip spreads, we will deduct the chip repair cost from the price of a new windshield.
