No. A windshield chip repair prevents further damage to your glass and restores the structural integrity of the vehicle. Following a repair, a slight blemish or imperfection where the impact occurred is normal. However, in most cases, you’ll notice a big improvement in the appearance of your windshield. If this is not the case, we will credit the cost of the repair either towards a new windshield or, in the case of an insurance claim, back to the insurance company when the windshield is replaced. Please refer to the Guarantees section of the website for more details.

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 can I know whether my auto glass damage can be repaired or whether it needs to be replaced?
If your windshield damage is smaller than the size of a loonie ($1 coin), is not in the driver's line of vision, and is at least 4 cm from the edge of the windshield, we will likely be able to repair it.
If your windshield damage consists of more than 3 impact points or a crack larger than a loonie ($1), is in the driver's line of vision, or is less than 4 cm from the edge, we strongly recommend that you replace it.
