Road hazards are a fact of life for drivers. Through no fault of your own someone’s tire may send a stone or other debris flying at your vehicle. Drivers in BC are very familiar with windshield damage! The damage may seem minimal (a small chip or crack), and you may feel like you can just live with it and skip the time spent on repair, but the reality is even a slightly damaged windshield makes your vehicle unsafe to drive.
Legally, in BC cracks longer than 300mm, more than 2 cracks longer than 150mm, or chips larger than 40mm in diameter are all considered ‘vision obstructing’ and require the windshield to be repaired or replaced.
Can it be repaired or does it need to be replaced?
According to BC law, any damage larger than the size of a Loonie cannot be repaired and the windshield must be replaced. Long cracks also require the windshield to be replaced. The good news is if you have comprehensive insurance coverage your windshield can likely be repaired or replaced without paying a deductible! Visit a reliable windshield repair shop like Trademark Glassworks and we will give you an estimate.
Where can you get your windshield repaired?
To get your windshield repaired you should take it to an ICBC-approved glass repair facility like Trademark Glassworks. As an ICBC-approved glass repair facility, Trademark Glassworks can initiate a windshield claim with ICBC for you and invoice them directly. We can quickly get your car or truck model’s windshield ordered and set up a time for the installation. Typically, you need to leave your vehicle with us as it can take up to 4 hours for the glue to cure.
