A flying rock can chip or crack your windshield. After being struck, you should make an appointment to have the chip or crack filled in to prevent it from growing. However, when you call to make an appointment, it may be several days until your appointment, depending on how busy the auto glass repair shop is. During this time, you will want to protect your windshield from the sun and heat extremes. The sun and heat can both cause your glass to heat up and expand, which can cause the crack or chip to rapidly spread. If this happens, the crack or chip can become too large to repair and your entire windshield will need to be replaced. Here are a few tips for protecting your windshield against heat extremes until it can be repaired.
