For most people, having a car is an essential factor in being able to get to and from work, as well as completing a lot of other necessary tasks in life. Of course, you want your car to be in the best condition possible, and this involves bringing it in for small repairs on a regular basis rather than letting them get so bad that they become major problems.

Here at Machinery Glass, we specialise in providing glass related solutions to problems with your car windows and windscreens in Townsville. Here is a list of some of the common issues that might see you coming to use for repairs.


  • Chips

Though your windscreen, it can sometimes take the tiniest thing to cause a chip that can then grow into something more damaging over time. You would be surprised by how many people leave a chip to expand before seeking repairs. The best thing to do is bring your car in as soon as you notice a chip, because the repair of one small thing is much easier and cheaper than a wide crack.


  • Cracks

Which leads us into cracks! Chips left over time will cause cracking to occur in the glass, and when you reach that stage, we are talking about replacement rather than repair. Depending on the location and severity of the crack, you might find yourself in the position of having to pay for a completely new windscreen.


  • Scratches

Whilst scratches on your glass might not be as serious as chips or cracks, it is still important to get them seen as soon as possible. This is especially the case if the scratches start to add up and begin to actually affect your ability to see through the windscreen. Maximum and unobstructed visibility is the most important thing when driving, for your safety and the safety of others!
