No one wants to get a chip in their car or truck’s windshield. It can be a time consuming problem. If you don’t get it repaired, you can end up with a crack the runs the length of the windshield, obstructing your view. But how can you prevent needing auto glass repair in the first place? There are a few tips that you can use to stay away from potential problems.
#1 give plenty of distance between you and the driver in front of you. That sounds strange right? Well one of the best ways to prevent problems is to stay away from drivers that have the potential to kick up rocks and debris on to your windshield. When traveling on roads with loose gravel or other construction work, reduce speed and be more cautious. An ounce of prevention will save you a lot of trouble down the road.
#2 give distance to large buses, trucks or other large vehicles. Not only do they sometimes have debris that my spill from their load, but their larger tire size and weight makes it easier to spit up rocks and gravel and at a stronger force than normal. The last thing that you want is to have to get your windshield replaced.
#3 avoid extreme changes in temperature for your glass. You may have tiny, small imperfections in your windshield from normal driving. If so, these small areas are subject to cracking. If it is a hot sunny day, avoid washing your car with cold water until the glass has cooled down in the shade or in a garage. Also you can avoid running your air conditioner at full blast directly on the glass. Extreme temperature changes in a short period of time can cause issues.
#4 try to avoid extreme potholes or other road problems. Jostling the windshield can cause cracks to form or increase.
#5 be careful when touching your windshield. If your windshield is already damaged (and some damage is hard for the naked eye to see) then even the medium pressure from an ice scraper can cause potential damage. You don’t want to have to replace your windshield just because you pressed a little two hard when scrapping off the snow. Take good care of your auto glass and you won’t need to have your auto glass repaired any time soon.
