DIY at-home kits
Some drivers try to use at-home kits to fix a rock chip. If you are not familiar with the materials and the process, you can actually cause more damage, instead of fixing the original chip.
Web video guides
Web video guides make windshield repair seem simple enough. Just like any online video or tutorial, you have to consider the source. A professional who is trained to do repairs makes it look easy on camera, because they have a steady hand and have done hundreds of repairs.
Ignoring the problem
Some drivers choose to just keep driving, waiting until it is so bad that it must be replaced. This is not only a more expensive decision, but an unsafe one. Drivers and passengers could be cut by broken glass if your windshield finally caves in after several months of driving.
The best choice is to visit a professional auto glass service right away. Once you see a windshield crack, a chipped window or other auto glass damage, let the pros get to work.
