You should get your windshield repair done as soon as possible for several reasons. You need to get it fixed before it gets worse. We can sometimes fix a small chip or crack without having to replace the entire windshield if we’re able to complete the repair early enough before the crack starts spreading. If the damage is already so severe that we need to replace the entire windshield, there’s even more of a reason to get the windshield repair done right away.
Severe windshield cracks are a safety concern. You’re not able to see properly when there’s a crack across the line of sight, and you could even get a fix-it ticket or fine if a law enforcement officer sees the issue. The condition of your windshield also contributes to the strength of your vehicle, so any significant damage is a safety concern.
