Should chipped windshields be replaced?

If there are multiple chips in your windshield that are limiting your vision then its time to consider replacing your windshield glass. Chips can spread into cracks when there are frequent temperature shifts in the atmosphere. Its important to consider replacing your windshield before the colder months come to avoid the interior of your windshield frosting.

Chipped windshields can usually be fixed by filling the chips with a special sealant.  Boulevard Auto Glass offers the service of a Backroad Rock Chip Pass which offers a year long membership to free chip fixes.
