When pebbles, stones or hail come into contact with auto glass, small chips can result. The damage to a chipped windshield may not look too extensive, but it can “spider out” into a long crack or several cracks that can be more difficult to repair.
We can stop the damage in its tracks. As soon as you notice a chip in your windshield, contact your local Crackmasters Canada shop to have it repaired.

Repairing a Chipped Windshield
Most windshield chips can be repaired easily and cost-effectively, but it’s important to repair your windshield as soon as you notice it’s chipped. Neglecting a chipped windshield can lead to a more complex chip that can be difficult to repair and may even result in your windshield needing to be replaced.
Until you can have your chipped windshield repaired, don’t wash your vehicle and avoid extreme temperature changes, such as running your hot defroster on your cold windshield.
Windshield Repair Process
To repair your windshield chip, we use a four step process.
- We clean the chip and remove any air pockets that may have formed inside it.
- Using a special drill, we open the chip slightly to allow the repair resin to flow into every part of the chip to create a strong repair.
- We inject UltraBond repair resin into the chip.
- With an ultraviolet light, we cure the resin so that it hardens to form a seamless bond with the glass.
The windshield chip repair process takes less than 30 minutes, and in most cases, you won’t even be able to distinguish the chip repair from the rest of the windshield.
Crackmasters has locations throughout Canada, so no matter where you are when you get a chip in your windshield, we can fix it for you quickly and inexpensively.
