Chip repairs in a windshield is a common service offered by our Cincinnati, OH Porsche of Kings Automall technicians. Chips commonly occur when small rocks or other types of debris become airborne and make contact with the windshield. Initially, the blemish is unsightly but minor.

However, in time, direct sunlight combined with changing atmospheric temperatures often cause the chip to spread. Without proper attention, the chip transforms into a crack that may extend across the entire windshield, which hinders visibility.

The repair process begins with thoroughly cleaning the site to remove debris and moisture. Otherwise, repair attempts result in cloudiness or discolorations at the site. When clean and dry, a technician applies a special resin over the chip. The compound must be hardened using ultraviolet light. After the compounds dry, the surface is smoothed as needed.
