What to expect after a windscreen chip repair
Although a windscreen chip repair is much less noticeable it is not guaranteed to be totally invisible.
How much you can see after the repair is dependent on the size, age and position of the damage.
A repair is always more visible from the inside than the outside because it is backlit.
Older damage is likely to contain dirt and contamination that makes the repair more visible and can limit bonding strength.
The customer accepts the glass is unserviceable prior to any repair and may crack when a repair or polishing is attempted due to stress that is latent within the glass.
