The windshield represents 30% of the structure of your vehicle. It therefore plays a vital role in helping maintain the vehicle's structural strength in the event of a rollover or front-end collision. It also helps ensure the airbags deploy as they should to protect your passengers. A new, properly fitted windshield aids in restoring the structural strength of the vehicle. It is a part of your vehicle that should not be underestimated.

Can my windshield shatter?
This is unlikely. A windshield is made of laminated glass and consists of a plastic compound called polyvinyl butyral (or PVB), which prevents the glass from shattering.
How does the windshield repair process work?
A windshield repair involves introducing a product under pressure into the chip. The process restores the windshield to its original strength and reduces the appearance of the damage.
