Many drivers will have to make a smaller claim at some stage as a result of a minor accident and one of the most common reasons for this is damage to their windscreen.
Windscreen damage usually occurs in the form of a chip or crack. Chips or cracks are most frequently caused by objects, such as gravel or pebbles that are thrown up by the tyres of another car, striking the windscreen. Other reasons for windscreen damage include: debris falling off construction lorries, stress cracks due to poor manufacturing or installation, hailstones, rapid changes in temperature and accidents. This can be a frustrating and frightening experience which can cause unexpected expense.
Windscreen cover generally covers damage to the car windscreen (including the incidents above).
