windshield chip

Recently had a tiny chip patched up in the summer and all was good. Now that I actually need to use my wipers I can see that it snags on the patch and make a squeaking noise every time the blade passes the chipped spot and can see it drag.

Any way to fix that? Is it just the resin was accidentally left the slightest bit higher than the glass surface?

Sounds like they didn’t smooth out the surface enough but it should be an easy fix. Just gotta add some pit filler again, cure it under a UV light and a fresh razor blade to level it out. There shouldn’t be a charge for this, should be a 5 min fix.
