Germiston Motoring Feature
Replace or repair?

It’s what many car owners dread, that pinging sound as a stone flicks up off the road or bounces off the back of a truck and hits your windscreen.
What starts as a small chip quickly becomes a crack making its way further and further across the windscreen.
So while windscreens are specifically designed to provide structural support for the vehicle as well as to stand up to the stress of travelling, damage does inevitably occur.
Interestingly windscreens are actually made up of two layers of glass with an inner layer of automotive safety glass between them. This inner layer, the lamination, serves to hold together the broken outer layers in the event of an accident.
That is why windscreens crack when struck by objects, but don’t fall apart and cave in on the driver in most circumstances.
The question is whether the damage calls for a full windscreen replacement or if a repair will do.
