Why You Should Get a Chip or Crack Fixed Immediately

Picture this, it’s Monday morning, you open up your curtains to find a small, what most people would consider an insignificant chip or crack on your window. You haven’t got time to worry about this though as you have to get ready for work and this is something you can deal with later. However, this is easily forgotten and months could go by before you get it seen to. By then this small chip can become a more time consuming and costly issue.

If the crack becomes too large it might not be able to be repaired resulting in a whole new pane of glass needing to be fitted.

How Does the Chip Become a Bigger Problem?

Due to the UKs ever changing weather conditions your window pane can expand and contract, which in some cases over a period of months can cause a tiny or insignificant chip to turn into a large, defined crack.

What to do if You Find a Chip

The best course of action would be to contact your local window and door specialist such as Countywide Windows who will be able to offer you expert advice and recommendations in order for you to solve the issue quickly and cost-effectively.
