Many types of stone damage can be successfully repaired. Bullseyes, cracks, star-breaks or a combination of all three, can be repaired without removing the glass.
A chipped windscreen does not always need to be replaced. If you are fully comprehensively insured then it’s usually free. Most insurance companies will pay in full for windscreen repairs with no loss of no-claims bonus for comprehensive insurance.
Windscreen Damage Zones
The British Standard code of practice currently allows a windscreen repair of damage that is contained within a circle of 10mm in Zone A and damage contained within a circle of 25mm in the remainder of the swept area, Zone B. Elsewhere windscreen repairs can be undertaken up to 40mm across. On HGVs cracks up to 150mm long can be safely repaired.
