Advice About Cracked Windshield Dos & Don’ts

Sooner or later, it’s bound to happen: a chipped or cracked windshield. Below are a few tips from the experts in windshield and glass repair at Glass Inc.

Do:

Locate the crack or chipDo not drive your vehicle if the crack affects visibility. Why take unnecessary chances? Be on the safe side and call Glass Inc.

Determine the size of the crack: If it measures less than the width of a quarter, you can most likely get away with a simple repair rather than a full-blown windshield replacement.

Keep it clean: When dirt, dust and other types of debris become lodged in the crack or chip, repairs become more difficult. Safeguard the crack with some transparent tape.

Park your car in the garage or car port: When the sun beats down on a cracked or chopped windshield, the glass weakens over time. This will cause the crack to spread.

Do Not:

Put it off. The issue won’t go away if you ignore it. In fact, it will only get worse.  Tiny chips and cracks tend to spread if left as-is, and eventually, you may need to replace the entire windshield as the glass weakens.

Drive with a badly cracked windshield!  As the windshield’s damage progresses, your visibility diminishes. This could cause you to slam into another car, a pedestrian, or child on a bicycle.

Turn up the air conditioner or heater: Extreme fluctuations in temperature can cause the windshield glass to weaken.

Visit the Car Wash: When you have a cracked windshield, water can turn a tiny chip into a spider crack.

Immediately Repair/Replace cracks measuring or longer, and chips the size of a quarter: Unfortunately, it’s time for a brand-new windshield.
