Road debris often strikes a windshield and creates damage in the auto glass. The damage usually ranges from small “nicks” to areas as large as a 50-cent piece. Most breaks smaller than a nickel in diameter can be repaired. Most breaks have a dark or silver appearance when the damage first occurs. The windshield repair process will remove the the shadow and restore the appearance back. Some breaks with small fractures will leave a reflection after the repair has been completed. If your damage is located within the drivers line of sight (an area of 8 1/2 x 11 inches) you should not repair the break but replace the windshield.
