Windshield Replacement or Repair: What Does My Car Need?
A&E Glass can repair most chipped windshields and cracks. Cracks that are more than three inches long and chips that are close to a half-inch wide usually require windshield replacement to protect the structural integrity of the glass and the safety of the car’s occupants. A windshield replacement is also most likely needed if a damaged area obstructs the driver’s view.
When deciding if you need to have your windshield repaired or replaced, consider these three factors:
- Size: There are a few exceptions, but chips larger than 3/8 inch and cracks longer than three inches generally require windshield replacement.
- Location: Cracks that splinter all the way to the edge of the windshield typically require replacement, due to their tendency to spread. Chips or cracks directly in the driver’s line of vision require replacement as well, as a repaired crack often does not cure clearly, leaving a slight outline in the repair area.
- Timespan: The longer you leave chips and cracks unaddressed, the more likely dirt will build up. Dirt accumulation inside a crack or chip makes it difficult to perform a successful repair, and makes windshield replacement the better option.
Of course, a member of our team will provide our professional recommendation during your free consultation.

Windshield Replacement and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Recalibration
There’s more to your windshield than meets the eye. Most new vehicles are equipped with advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, technologies. ADAS technologies like lane departure warning systems, intelligent speed adaptation and parking sensors are designed to increase the safety of vehicles. They are also often dependent on windshield-mounted sensors. Approximately 60 A&E Glass locations now employ Opti-Aim™ technology to re-calibrate windshield-mounted ADAS technologies as part of our windshield replacement service.
