Types of windshield cracks and chips

It is surprising that most people are unaware of the fact that there are 14 different types of cracks and chips that can occur on a windshield. That’s right, fourteen! Did you ever think that windshield damage could be so complicated?

Windshields are often the victims of small debris, and it usually brings about an unattractive chip or crack in your windshield. Cracks can likewise be brought about by flying debris smashing into the windshield. Let’s focus on the major types of crack on windshield:

The Bulls-Eye: Named after the bull’s eye on a dart board. As the name suggests, it is round in shape and there is a visible point of impact with concentric circles around it. Ignoring the bull’s eye crack will permit dust and oil to advance into the crack and cause further damage.




Star: They are especially troublesome because if left unattended can spread over your windshield. They occur when an object strikes the windshield and leaves minor cracks that branch off from the point of impact.







The Half Moon: The half moon is a semi-circle caused by a blunt impact of small debris. Since it is not a complete circle, a trained technician can clean it with much ease as compared to a bull’s eye break.


Combination: It is a mix of bull’s eye and star break.Extensive damage is caused to the glass if such a crack occurs and is hard to repair. Even with today's innovation, combination cracks cannot be completely repaired.


It is important to get these cracks repaired as soon as possible. If done on time, it will be easier to repair and it will also help save money in the long run.
