Cracked windshields seem to be a Dallas tradition! You see them everywhere. Usually, those huge cracks started out as a small rock chip that could have easily been repaired. But once a windshield is cracked all the way across ("cracked out"), it has to be replaced.
Temperature changes, wind pressure, and road vibrations can all cause a rock chip or small crack to spread, sometimes rapidly.
To restore the structural integrity of the windshield, which is part of your vehicle's safety system in case of rollover, both the original rock chip and the crack must be repaired.
It is important to identify the type of crack to determine if your windshield is repairable. The American National Standard Repair of Laminated Automotive Glass Standard (ROLAGS) identifies the following types of cracks:

If your windshield is cracked and you don't know if it can be fixed, please call me at 972-983-8571 and I will answer your questions. In some cases, an inspection is necessary for me to determine if the damage is repairable or not.
Fixing cracked windshields is more difficult than fixing rock chips and requires special training and skill. It is important to make sure the auto glass repair technician you select is trained in fixing cracks in windshields and uses high-quality, professional equipment.

WARNING: Do not attempt DIY windshield crack repair. Over-the-counter kits do not fill cracks and they do not restore the structural integrity of the glass. Driving with a cracked windshield is dangerous which is why it is illegal in many states.
