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.

You can schedule an appointment online with us or obtain a quote to have your glass damage fixed.
