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 parameters 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 it’s name implies, it’s heating capability is limited to the area of the windshield wipers. Located inside of the glass, its works to “free” the wipers from ice and/or snow. 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.
