The Different Types of Windshield Chips
Bulls-eye or partial bulls-eye:
These rock chips are some of the most common windshield rock chips that can be repaired. They contain damage that is marked by a separated cone in the outer layer of glass that results in a dark circle with an impact point. A “bulls-eye” rock chip can be repaired if the diameter is no larger than one inch.
Another common windshield rock chip that has damage that exhibits a series of legs that emanate from the break. Star chips can be repaired if the chip’s total diameter (including legs) does not exceed three inches.
A rock chip that has damage with multiple characteristics. Those characteristics can include a star within a bulls-eye or short or long crack(s) emanating from the damage. This can be repaired if the diameter of the body (excluding legs) does not exceed two inches.
This is a nick in the glass associated with normal wear and tear that does not penetrate to the plastic inner layer. This can be repaired if the damaged area has a diameter of not less than 1/8 inch.
