Winter can be tough on your car, especially the windscreen – when we defrost our cars in a morning the rapid change in temperature can cause even a tiny stone chip to crack, meaning the screen might need to be replaced.
Remember, when defrosting your car:
DO use a de-icer spray and a plastic windscreen scraper
DO use the car’s heater vents to help gradually increase the temperature
DO use proper screenwash in your washer bottle to prevent freezing
DO thoroughly defrost and clear all your windows before starting your journey
DON’T poor warm or boiling water over your screen – this will change the temperature too quickly
DON’T ignore any stone chips or damage – call us now to save yourself higher repair costs
If your car or van windscreen has a stone chip or a crack then give us a call!
We are fully equipped to repair chipped or cracked windscreens, and we will do so wherever possible to help avoid unnecessary costs to our customers. The cost of a chip repair is significantly lower than a windscreen replacement and is quicker to carry out too, meaning less vehicle down time, less overall cost and less inconvenience to you.
When we carry out a windscreen chip repair, as well as visually improving the area of damage, it returns the screen to its original strength. All our windscreen chip repairs are carried out in accordance with British Standard BS AU 242a 1998.
