One small crack or chip can ruin an entire windshield, if ignored. While you wait for your vehicle glass repair appointment, here is how you can keep the crack from spreading and keep yourself safe when you drive.
If the crack is preventing you from seeing clearly when you drive, windshield glass repair or replacement should be your top priority. If you can’t drive, ask for mobile windshield replacement service to come to your home or office to replace the windshield glass.
Cracks, that are shorter than 12 inches, or chips, that are smaller than a quarter, are often ignored by car owners. But you still need to get your windshield inspected by a professional to prevent the crack or chip from causing further damage and to repair it while there is still time to do so.
Before the windshield repair appointment, ensure that any dirt, debris, or water do not enter the crack. To prevent these from getting into the crack or chip, seal the area with packing tape. This simple trick can prevent the need for simple repair turning into a full-scale replacement.
Drastic temperature changes are not good for a damaged windshield. While you drive, avoid using the heater or air conditioner on high. Park your car in a garage to prevent the glass from heating up and expanding in hotter months.
