Windscreen replacement is exactly what the term suggests. Swapping an old windscreen out for a new one. This is usually required if a repair is not an option for the damage that has occurred. Emergency Windscreens is proud to offer hassle-free, emergency car windscreen replacement for all car makes, models, and vehicle types!
There are many ways in which windscreen damage can occur. It’s rather common for stones and other debris to be flicked up from the road to chip, scratch, or crack your windscreen. Damage can also be caused by hail or a collision.
When an Emergency Windscreens technician carries out their initial assessment, they will always take time to consider if a damaged windscreen can be repaired. A repair is faster and cheaper than replacing the whole windscreen. However, the extent and location of the damage may mean that repair is not possible.

Being a mobile windscreen replacement service, we can come to your home or work. Pretty much anywhere in Melbourne, that’s convenient for you and safe for the technician. We can replace your front, back, and side windows quite easily. Also, any work carried out by any Emergency Windscreens technician is covered by a lifetime warranty for your peace of mind.

What Happens If I Don’t Deal With A Crack?
It’s understandable why you might think that even the smallest chip or crack is insignificant. However, if left unrepaired – even for the shortest time – that tiny amount of damage can develop into a larger and more serious issue.
A normal windscreen is built to withstand normal flexing from vibrations from driving. Chip damage can escalate quickly and develop into a crack, growing across the entire windscreen. It may seem unlikely, but it can take just a slight bump in the road caused by a rock or pothole to send a fracture across the width of your car. As a result, hindering your vision and safety.
It is important to take care of all sorts of chips and cracks on faulty windscreens as soon as you notice the issue. When you call Emergency Windscreens, we will send an experienced glass technician to you for an immediate assessment of the windscreen. They’ll ascertain whether a repair is possible or of a complete windscreen replacement is necessary.
Why Replace a Windscreen?
It is important to have your windscreen replaced when there’s any concern regarding the safety or performance of your windscreen. If a crack is big enough to need a replacement it is best to get it fixed as soon as possible. Driving with a crack is unsafe, unroadworthy and could end up being rather costly if you are fined. Large windscreen cracks weaken the windscreen’s structural integrity and any small bump in its weakened state can cause a lot of further damage.
So how do you know if your car’s windscreen needs to be replaced? Small cracks, chips, and scratches can often be repaired, however, we strongly recommend that your windscreen be replaced if:
- It has had 8 or more previous repairs,
- A chip or cracks starts or finishes at the edge of the windscreen,
- The damage extends through more than the outer layer of glass,
- There is notable delamination of the laminate bonding area,
- If previous repairs are located too close to the area where the new damage has occurred.
Can I Just Repair My Windscreen?
Emergency Windscreens will first assess the damage to your windscreen and see if the damage can be repaired. Our expert technicians will always opt to repair any issues where possible, however, sometimes a repair isn’t a viable option and your car will require a total windscreen replacement.
Some chips and cracks can be repaired while others need replacement to keep you safe on the road. Chip size, location, and windscreen history will determine the best solution for your situation. Repair is the best option if the chip is outside of the critical vision area and is smaller than a 5 cent coin. If the damage doesn’t qualify for repair, it will need to be replaced by an expert at a time and location that suits you.
How Much Does a Windscreen Replacement Cost?
The cost of windscreen replacement will vary depending on a number of variables:
- Type of car, vehicle or truck,
- Make and model,

- Whether the windscreen houses any valuable electronics and sensors
Whilst we will always do our best to deliver the most competitive price, supplier costs can affect what you pay at the time of repair.
