Q&A Corner: Is It Repairable?
A recent question from Mina N. of Annandale, VA:
Question: “I have a small chip (size of a dime), but there are two long cracks extending from it. Can it be repaired?”
Answer: Unfortunately, the damage you’re describing exceeds the scope of a windshield chip repair and would warrant a replacement. There are times when a rock chip expands immediately, which leaves the owner without options. But if the chip has not spread, it’s important to have it repaired immediately to avoid a replacement.
If you’re unsure if your chip is repairable, feel free to email us a picture with a dime – not on – but next to it, so we can gauge the size.
Windshield Guide: Heated Wiper Park Area
A windshield with a Heated Wiper Park Area (HWPA) is different from a fully heated windshield. As the name implies, its heating capability is limited to the area of the windshield wipers. Located inside of the glass, the heating element melts ice and/or snow to allow the wipers to function properly. While it’s used by many manufacturers, it’s most commonly seen in Jeeps, Subarus and Toyotas, to name a few. Sometimes they are fully visible on the outside of the windshield, while other times, they are completely hidden.
Jason G. of Annandale, Va:
“It’s always nice when a company delivers on their promises, and 5 Star Auto Glass did just that. They do quality work, and their prices are very reasonable. We have a total of five cars, so I’m sure we’ll need auto glass service again. And when we do, we’ll know who to call.”
