Repair or Replace

What’s the best option?

There are times when your damaged windscreen will only require some simple repairs.

Then there are occasions where you will require emergency service to prevent significant damage or injury. Whatever the case the team from Sunshine Coast Windscreens will be there for you in no time and will have your windscreen or windows looking good as new.

Sunshine Coast Windscreens ensure that the highest quality work is done for the best price, the first time, every time. For a fraction of the cost of replacing a windscreen, we can simply repair stone chips and cracks to the same strength as the original glass.

Sunshine Coast Windscreens make sure that your needs are met through their range of innovative solutions, however in line with guidelines set out under the Australian New Zealand safety Standard AS/NZS 2366.1-1999 some chips or cracks are required to be replaced rather than repaired.

Further limitations on the repair of vehicle glass exist if:

  • A total of eight or more previous repairs anywhere on the windscreen
  • A crack starts and finishes at the edge of the windscreen
  • Damage extends through more than the outer layer of glass
  • There is notable delamination of the laminate bonding layer at or near the new damage
  • When centering the overlay template on the new damage, the previous repairs are also located partially or wholly within the overlay area. Or if the new or old repairs are partially or wholly within the critical vision area.
