The Disadvantages of Using Windshield Repair Kits

The tempered glass may have prevented rocks, pebbles, and sand from entering your eyes… but guess what? The window now has a noticeable chip right at the center of it. What an unpleasant sight! How are you supposed to ignore an obvious dent on your car window? For sure, it’s an ugly distraction.cracked window pane

Unattractive as it may seem, windshield chips are pretty common though. The good news: it doesn’t really damage the internal structure of the car’s windshield. Yes, there are very cheap repair kits on Amazon. In fact, I saw that there are as low as $10 chip repair kits available.

However, are you a cheap repair kit is the best solution? Below, I will discuss why using a windshield repair is NOT exactly the most ideal solution for you.

What are the disadvantages of windshield repair kits?

  1. Warranty will be void if you try to repair it yourself. Faulty repairs could get you in serious trouble. However, you contact an auto glass repair shop, like A+ PLUS AUTO GLASS, you are certain on genuine car parts. Moreover, A+ PLUS AUTO GLASS is an I-CAR certified and BBB accredited business.
  2. If you make a mistake, you cannot undo it. Once you messed up in correctly repairing the windshield chip, there’s no other way to reverse the process. The repair may seem “easy,” but trust me, one wrong move and spots will be obvious. You will notice some distortion or smudge on the repaired area. Once this happens, you might need to buy a new windshield for your car.
  3. Not every damage you see can be repaired by windshield kits. The kit is only applicable for minor damages such as a window bullseye chip. Other than that, you may need to contact a professional an auto glass repair shop. Automotive body repairs may need efficient tools in order to remedy significant damages such as spiderweb cracks, windshield cracks, and other obvious cracks.

Should you start a DIY project?

Eventually, your vehicle will experience wear and tear through the years. Tiny pebbles and rocks will crack your windshield, and when it is showing signs of damage, you have to take action immediately. Will you really save a substantial amount of money if you decide to repair it yourself? The more important question is, can you? Are you sure a windshield repair kit can solve it all? It’s really up to you. If you think you can, then, go ahead.

In the long run, minor complications would lead to serious damages because you originally thought that you could save money by going for a cheaper alternative.
