Can My Stone Chip be Fixed?
When it comes to windscreen stone chips, we have to treat each screen as an individual case. Every chip has to be assessed to allow the best price and option available to you. There are many factors to take into consideration such as; the size of the chip, area of the chip, type of chip, how long the damage has been there, contamination in the chip.

How Long Does a Windscreen Replacement Take?
We say on average a windscreen replacement doesn't take much longer than 1 hour to replace, then further time for the glue to set before the vehicle can be driven. The complexity of the replacement can vary on each vehicle, and some replacements can take as long as a day to complete the work. We can discuss the specific details of your car's needs with Tough car glass at the time of the booking.

Repairing a stone chip has different stages, each stage has a set time to complete and a repair normally takes no more than 30 minutes.
