Most people take great care to avoid any damage to the glass of bodywork of their vehicles, but with the best intentions there is no accounting for road damage in the form of loose gravel and small stones – this is by far the most common cause of chipped and cracked windshields.

Over time your vehicle is highly likely to sustain this type of damage from the road, and while it is easy to ignore, doing so can lead to safety issues and penalties. Even the smallest chip or blemish in the glass can worsen over time and lead to dangerous faults in the glass and expensive, avoidable repairs and replacements.
