What is Windscreen Repair?
Windscreen repair is the process of cleaning and filling a chip or crack on you windscreen with a resin to restrengthen the glass and restore nearly 100% optical clarity to your windscreen.
Why spend money on a repair?
Modern windscreens are expensive and fragile. Even a small chip can quickly become a long crack, which means that you will have to replace your windscreen to keep your vehicle roadworthy and safe. Yes, a cracked windscreen will significantly reduce the structural integrity of your vehicle and make it unsafe in the event of a collision or rollover. Avoid costly replacements and get those chips repaired by a NOVUS professional in under 30 minutes!
When should you repair?
Some chips instantly turn into cracks, some take more time. Chips within 2 centimetres of the edge of the windscreen or over the air vents are likely to extend the same day…
There is no telling when a chip will turn into a crack – now is the time to get that windscreen chip repaired!
