When it comes to ordinary wear and tear on your car, you may be surprised at the damage caused by a kicked up rock while on the road. And what seems like a harmless chip or crack is anything but. Here’s how to tell when you should be calling for a new car windshield so you can be prepared.
There’s a Growing Crack
A growing crack in your auto glass affects the integrity of your window, making it more vulnerable to breaking completely if there’s another impact of any kind. And with continued driving, it’s likely to only get worse over time because of the ongoing vibrations it’s subjected to.
There’s a Chip That’s Bigger Than 1” Wide
While minor chips can sometimes be repaired, depending on how deeply the glass is affected, a large chip requires new glass. As with a large crack, the chipped area is typically weaker and more likely to get further damaged if you don’t take care of it.
The Damaged Area Is Within The Driver’s Field of Vision
Keeping your viewing area clear is essential to safe driving. Any crack, chip, warping or other kind of damage to your windshield risks your safety as well as your passengers’ well-being. New auto glass installation is the best way to fix the problem for long-term driving safety.
