The chip in my windshield is small... Do I really need a repair?
Your car's safety can be compromised by a cracked windshield.
When you're driving in low light or in rough weather, cracks on your windshield can interfere with your vision. If you can't see clearly, you are more likely to get into a collision or road pile-up. A cracked windshield is also a constant distraction. Cracks also reflect the sun, causing a blinding glare that can threaten you and your passengers. If your visibility is obstructed and you can't drive, take advantage of our mobile service or call a towing service.
Structural Integrity Loss
Yes your car windshield keeps the wind and rain off of you while you’re driving, but did you know it provides 40% structural strength to the car’s roof? A chip or crack in the windshield can weaken the integrity of it substantially, making your vehicle less safe to drive. In the event of a rollover, the roof can collapse in one the occupants causing a life threatening hazard.
Accidents that result in death
The windshield is designed to act as a protective barrier for you and the other passengers inside the vehicle during accidents. In the event of a collision to the front of your vehicle, a cracked windshield will be unable to withstand heavy, aggressive impact. This lack of integrity in the windshield poses a serious threat to you and your passengers. A structurally sound windshield is just as, if not, more important than your seatbelt.
Deployment of airbags is ineffective
Believe it or not, during a major collision, your car’s windshield also has a role to play in the proper deployment of your airbags. The airbags rely on the windshield to act as a backstop so they can inflate in the direction of the passengers rather than towards the front of the car. A cracked windshield can be shattered by the force of an airbag deployment which can result in a malfunction of the airbags deployment which may result in injuries or even fatalities.
You may have seen a broken windshield before and noticed how it stays intact when shattered. This is what happens in the case of impact on an unbroken windshield, however, when a windshield has existing cracks or breaks and is impacted, it will break free and become dangerous, airborne pieces of glass. A broken windshield cannot offer the same level of safety as an undamaged one.
How to Fix a Cracked Windshield
The windshield plays an important role in the overall safety of your car. Even what seems like minor damage to your car’s glass can compromise the structural integrity of your vehicle. A cracked windshield is a direct threat to your life and should not be neglected. It is crucial to get a cracked or chipped windshield checked and repaired or replaced by a professional at your earliest convenience. Our experts will be able to tell you if you need a replacement or if your damaged glass can be repaired.
There are many so-called DIY “solutions” to broken auto glass and these options may be tempting, but these remedies will most likely not solve the problem and could very well make the problem worse. A proper windshield repair or replacement takes proper expertise and equipment that is beyond the scope of the general DIY handyman. Don’t risk the safety of you and your passengers by trying to save a few dollars. Enlist the help of true auto glass professionals to properly repair or replace your vehicle's broken glass. We have all of the knowledge and tools to install and repair new glass so you can rest assured that the structural integrity of your car is maintained.
