What You Need to Know About Your Windshield
As the name suggests, a windshield is designed to shield a vehicle’s occupants from the strong air currents that develop as the vehicle moves and to protect them from rain, insects and other airborne objects. Windshields are also critical for good aerodynamic performance and help to boost fuel efficiency. Most modern windshields feature two sheets of glass held together by a thin plastic film that’s sandwiched between them. This plastic film adds extra structural integrity and prevents the glass from splintering when hit by small objects. Despite this composite construction, windshields are constantly prone to damage by sand, pebbles and rocks that get flung into the air by vehicles on the road as well as by other falling objects.
Reasons to Replace Your Windshield
Windshields with single chips or small, localized cracks are generally good candidates for our first-rate repair services. Larger cracks and widespread areas of damage, however, often mean that the entire windshield must be replaced. A good rule of thumb is that if a windshield has more than three cracks of any size or a single crack that extends more than four inches, replacement rather than repair is the best option. We also usually recommend our replacement services for windshields that leak during rainfall events and for windshields that appear to have been improperly installed at the time of manufacture or during a previous replacement.
Benefits of Windshield Replacement
A well-maintained, crack-free windshield makes every vehicle look better, but the advantages go far beyond boosting aesthetics. A damaged windshield is more likely to shatter and send glass into the vehicle during an accident. Eliminating cracks can also prevent sudden, unexpected glare in bright sunlight and improve the driver’s ability to see the road ahead in any weather. In some jurisdictions, drivers can also be ticketed for operating a vehicle with a damaged windshield.
