Do i need a repair or replacement?

 Premier Windscreens always prefer to repair before replacing with new glass which saves time, money and the enviroment. Please visit our Windscreen Repair page for more infromation.

My windscreen is cracked is it still safe to drive?

Yes, modern windscreens are basically a thick layer of resin ( Polyvinyl butyral (or PVB) sandwiched between two layers of glass. When your glass is damaged its the outer layer that has cracked. So still safe to continue using until we can replace the windscreen. Obviously if the damage is in your field of vision we would not recommend driving and many police forces would consider it a motoring offence and you may be liable for points and/or fine.

1 hour in most instances unless technician advises otherwise.  We use the best urethane in the business made my Sika.

Please keep do not wash your vehicle for 48 hours to allow the urethane to full cure after fitment.
