Recently, there has been some debate on the forum about how to terminate long cracks and if they are worth the attempt to repair. Delta Kits follows ROLAGS (Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standards) in all areas of windshield repair repairing damage, which recommends that any piece of glass with damage longer than six inches (the size of a dollar bill) should be replaced and not repaired. ROLAGS is a set of standards and guidelines, not a set of laws or rules that require obedience. With that said, cracks over six inches can be repaired, but most insurance companies only cover cracks up to six inches.
