Types of Windshield Damage
There’s no type of glass damage that we can’t take care of on your windshield. When your car experiences any of the following types of damage, the GlassWerks team will be ready to get to work.
While cracks are generally lines that may or may not branch out in different directions, there are still different types of cracks that require unique treatment.
- Stress cracks often form as a result of temperature changes. Minnesota winters generate the freezing temperatures and ice necessary to form these cracks.
- Alternatively, an edge crack generates from the edge of the windshield and continues to grow.
- Floater cracks begin in the middle of the windshield and can grow if the temperatures dip below freezing. Understanding how each crack differs will help the GlassWerks team provide you with the most effective solution.
Chips, Bullseyes, & Stars
Perhaps the most familiar type of windshield damage is chips. Chips are the result of an object (usually a stone or rock) impacting the windshield’s surface.
Among this type of damage includes bullseyes, which are larger than the standard chip and have the appearance of a bulls-eye or half-moon. Additionally, stars are smaller than chips and appear to have cracks spreading out from their center.
