Types of windshield cracks

Scientists like to classify everything into its own unique category, giving it a special scientific name that defines its nature. Would you believe that windshield cracks are also carefully named and categorized too? It may seem silly, but it is important for a Utah windshield repair specialist to classify cracks so they can mend them. It may even be good for you as the customer to memorize these terms, for you repair specialists would be very impressed with you knowledge.

The floater

The floater

No, this is not comparable to fecal matter in the toilet that survives the first flushing. This is a crack that starts anywhere on the windshield and starts to slowly crawl it's way around the surface. Crawling is probably not the best way to describe it, which is why experts liken it to a brown lump of you-know-what floating around a Utah community pool. Everyone knows it, and everyone fears it. That's why it's a floater.

The edge

The edge

The edge is a fitting name because, when it appears, it cuts like a razor's edge into the heart of the Utah driver that sees it. This is a crack that starts on the edge of the windshield and moves inward for eternity. These are more difficult to repair because it hits the frame, so a specialists would probably recommend replacement. After that, you will never want to live life on the edge ever again.

The bull's eye

The bull's eye

It sometimes seems that nature likes to play darts with rocks, using our windshields as a dartboard. When they land a good hit, it creates a rock chip that resembles a small dartboard with a little hole in the middle, making a little bull's eye for everyone to see. You were probably not a big fan of darts to begin with, but this cements your desire to never bet on darts again.

The half moon:

The half moon:

This is a rare rock chip that only occurs during special phases of the moon where only half is revealed. Just kidding, it's not. All it is is a bull's eye crack cut if half, usually from a rock that comes at a funky angle.

The stress crack:

The stress crack:

Windshields have feelings too. Sometimes they get so overwhelmed from their responsibilities that they sometimes just crack, usually under extreme heat. However, unlike a typical rock chip crack, these tend to make straight lines across the windshield, resembling a scar from a childhood t-ball game gone awry.
