Chipped windscreens do not always need to be changed. If you are fully comprehensively insured then it’s usually free. Most insurance companies will pay in full for windscreen repairs with no loss of no-claims bonus for comprehensive insurance.
The British Standard Code of Practice currently allows a windscreen repair of damage that is contained within a circle of 10mm in Zone A, 15mm in Zone B and damage contained within a circle of 25mm in the remainder of the swept area (Zone C). Elsewhere windscreen repairs can be undertaken up to 40mm across (Zone D). On HGV’s cracks up to 150mm long can be safely repaired. The repair system that Windscreens Online use is stronger than the original glass. The resin that we use has the same reflective index as glass. This is injected into the damage zone and results in an strong bonded repair. Most insurance companies offer this service free to you with comprehensive policies.
