Windscreen Replacement in Seaham

Even if you have a small chip it is important that you take care of the issue as it could get worse over time.

A small chip could very easily turn into a major crack as a car vibrates when it's driven, bumps in the road can also cause damage to glass quickly.

If there is damage in your windscreen and you have an MOT due, it is essential that you have the issue resolved before the test as it will affect the line of sight test and your vehicle could fail.

Fortunately having a windscreen or window replacement is not a complex job, even if the whole piece of glass must be removed and a new one installed.

If you are not sure if you need to replace a windscreen or to repair a windshield, use the advice below to assess the problem properly so you can make the right decision.

  • A chip has to be smaller than a £2 pound piece to be filled, if its bigger an entire replacement will be required.
  • The chip has to be at least 3cm away from the edge of the windscreen to be repaired.
  • If the damaged area is within the line of sight of the driver (an area of 30cm) the damage cannot occupy an area bigger than 10mm.

If you need an entire car windscreen replacement, the service is simple and can be boiled down to four steps.

  1. Your vehicle will have protective material covering the area around the windscreen which will shield the bodywork and interior of your car.
  2. The seals or glue which holds the windscreen in place will be cut by the mechanic and removed from the car.
  3. Special primer agent will be applied to the framework of the vehicle and allowed to dry and a bonding glue will applied to the new windscreen before it is fitted into place. This will ensure a strong hold is secured.
  4. The sticking agents need at least an hour to dry and the vehicle cannot be driven away before this time.
Although insurance policies will pay out for a windscreen replacement, window replacement, or any type of glass replacement, it can often be worth paying for the work instead of losing your no claims bonus.

What if the Windscreen is completely broken?

If your car windscreen is broken you should have the issue addressed immediately.

It is also important to remember that a cheap car windscreen replacement may not always be the best option as the job could be rushed and further problems caused. Glass replacement work is a specialist job so we advise using expert technicians to ensure the highest quality work. Whether it is a front or rear windscreen or front or rear windows, a specialist is usually the best option.

The best practice is to get a mobile windscreen replacement or garage windscreen replacement which can be carried out by a top rated garage with an excellent customer satisfaction record.

Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy which is why we simplified the process.
