Windshield repair kits may cause more problems than they solve
“Windshield Repair Kits: Cons
1. You may void your vehicle warranty if you attempt to repair a windshield crack or chip yourself. Should any further damage or personal injuries occur due to faulty repairs, you could be in trouble—both financially and ethically.
2.If you mess up filling in your windshield chip or crack, it can’t be re-done. There are simple albeit important steps to take during the repair process, and if not followed to a T, you may notice blemishes or opaque spots near the repaired section. At that point, you could be on the hook to buy a new windshield in addition to the repair kit.
3.Only minor window damage like bullseye chips can be corrected with windshield repair kits. Most auto body centers are equipped with professional tools to repair more significant damage, including long windshield cracks, starburst chips, and spiderweb cracks.”

The first thing you should do when dealing with a windshield chip or crack is to check your auto insurance. There’s a good chance that repairs for this might be covered without affecting your premiums or out of pocket expenses. Although small cracks and chips might look easy enough to fix on your own, that’s not always the case. Plus, there is no guarantee that the kit you use will hold up over time and inclement weather.
