Reader Question How long of crack in my car windshield can be repaired? I have a pretty long jagged crack about 3 inches long..is that too long for the repair guys to work with or can they still do a good job of repairing the crack that long?

Cracks and chips may be of various types and may not respond in the same way to the treatment, therefore if you own a windshield repair kit and the crack is not responding to it do not be alarmed. Cracks and chips up to six inches can be repaired by a windshield repair kit, however the experts can repair cracks and chips up to twenty four inches.

A windshield repair can quickly and easily save you the expense of replacing the entire windshield. Cracked windshields can also let in moisture, which can cause hidden corrosive rust to form on the underlying steel and compromise the adhesive bond of the glass to the vehicle. What looks fine from the outside may be a disaster forming underneath.
