STONECHIP AND SCRATCH SURGERY

WINDSCREEN REPAIR AT A FRACTION OF THE COST OF REPLACEMENT


STONE-CHIPS

Windscreen chips can devalue your vehicle. They can also impair your vision; fail an M.O.T. test and worse still, develop into irreparable damage. A simple stone-chip can create an impact crater which will allow water to ingress between the glass and vinyl interlayer. Exposed to the elements, the stonechip can eventually worsen beyond economic repair; this is either a result of damage to the vinyl interlayer (milky colour caused by contamination) or ultimately, a crack to the windscreen.

Windscreen chip repair works by injecting a clear resin into the damage, subsequently polishing the resin flush with the screen after a curing process. This will leave the area fully sealed thus prolonging the life of a windscreen. A successful repair can also satisfy and meet M.O.T. pass criteria.

For optimum results, the chip needs to be clean and water-free at the time of repair. As soon as you notice the damage – and if possible - cover the chip with a square of (preferably clear) sticky-tape giving the best chance to execute a perfect repair.


SCRATCHES AND SCUFFS

Failing to renew your wiper blades is not only illegal, but can also cause unsightly damage to the surface of your windscreen.Scratches and scuffs are also caused accidentally, carelessly (such as cleaning or from hand jewelery) or by vandalism.

Historically, scratched glass most often resulted in costly replacement. Scratch removal results are in direct proportion to the level, or ‘depth’ of damage. Please note, scratch and scuff removals are assessed for economic and safety reasons. More severe scratches and scuffs may result in a recommendation for replacement.
