If your windshield is cracked, you may be wondering if winter is the best time to replace it. Here is some information you should know.
Modern technology allow for windshield repairs to be conducted in many common situations that occur for every driver. It’s a bit out of the ordinary as some drivers go their entire life without ever having a damaged windshield, but common enough that you probably know somebody who has had a repair performed in the past. Outside of repairs, some cases simply require a full replacement, or at times it may make more sense to do the replacement than attempt repairs.
Spring is finally in the air. Baseball season is upon us and along with the crack of the bat, it is bringing some cracked, broken and damaged windshields along with it. It has been a tough pre-season for windshields owned by people who just may have picked the wrong parking spot while attending a spring baseball game. In one case, the damage was self inflicted.
Discovering that tiny chip or crack in your windshield is never a cause for celebration. It is also not the type of problem that you should just put off thinking about until another time. While it is easy to do so in today's fast-paced and busy world, the longer it is put off and not dealt with, the more serious -- and even unsafe -- it might become. Knowing the steps that you need to take can give you an action plan to follow and make it easier to get this task taken care of in a timely manner.
The moment you notice a crack or chip in your windshield, it's already time to act. Some windshield damage can be repaired with high-grade resin, which fills in the gaps and dries clear to maintain visibility, but this is only possible at the very earliest stages of the damage. Other cracks and chips require a full replacement, and they'll seriously compromise your safety until that happens.
Over time, your windshield is prone to scratches. The scratches can occur in a number of different ways, including general road debris, animals scrawling over the glass or even from the ice scraper. In most cases, you can repair these scratches yourself as long as you have the proper tools.
One of the worst things is driving down the highway and the car in front of your throwing a rock backward and into the windshield of your vehicle. You probably cuss up a storm at the tiny ding that it makes in your windshield. More than likely, you also let it continue to get worse and worse until you need a brand new windshield and a repair isn't even an option anymore. However, here at Only 1 Auto Glass, we do offer rock chip repair.
