A scratched windscreen is more than just a cosmetic problem – it can interfere with your vision while driving and can potentially weaken the windscreen and make it likely to crack. Typical causes of windscreen scratches are arcs caused by damaged wiper blades and hard objects glancing off the windscreen while driving.
Don’t be tempted to try to carry out a car windscreen scratch repair yourself with polish or an electric buffer, you can actually introduce more micro-scratches, and the heat from the buffer can crack the screen. It is also easy to underestimate the depth of the scratch, and removing too much glass from around it can cause an effect called ‘lensing’ which will ruin the windscreen. The only safe option is to get an expert, such as our fully-trained auto glaziers, to assess the problem and advise whether an auto windscreen scratch repair can be done, or if you need a windscreen replacement.
