Chips and Cracks

This is not something to be too worried about, as most chips and cracks can be easily repaired, but it is better to get it done as soon as possible. Waiting could result in further damage, and it may require full replacement.

A mobile service is around $55. The cost to repair a chip or crack is on a per incident basis – that is you will pay for every crack or chip.
The size of the crack will also determine the cost. Chips or cracks that are up to a foot in length will cost around $50 to $60 to repair. Those chips and cracks that are between one and two feet in length will cost somewhere between $60 to $70 to repair.
