Glendale, Arizona Auto Glass Repair
A great deal of drivers in the Glendale, Arizona area has experienced the following situation. You are driving down the road minding your own business listening to your favorite song on the radio, or possibly having a nice conversation with your passenger. Out of nowhere a small rock, piece of gravel, or other flying road debris slams into your windshield putting a dent in the glass. Although the sound of the initial impact scared the living daylight out of you the windshield seems intact. After catching your breath you end up going about your business.
Before you know it the incident is in your rear view mirror so to speak. The chip or small crack is not directly in your line of view, the windshield seems to be holding up fine, and at some point you will get around to having it fixed. Since you do not feel like dealing with your insurance company or paying for it out of pocket so the auto glass repair ends up at the bottom of your to do list. It is not really all that important anyway and the chip or small crack is hardly noticeable. Unfortunately this line of thinking could not be any further from the truth. In fact it is extremely dangerous. Although the windshield may look intact that chip or small crack is compromising the overall structural integrity of your vehicle, and putting you, your passengers, and anyone driving around you at risk.
The damage not only put a dent in your windshield it could put a significant dent in your life. The intent of your windshield is far more than to keep out the elements while providing you with a way to see out of your vehicle. These days automobile manufactures design the windshield as both a safety and structural element.
Cracked Vehicle Windshield Repair
For example, the windshield is designed to absorb a significant amount of the impact when the airbags are set off during an accident. A chip or small crack can cause the windshield to shatter on impact instead. That means the people inside of the vehicle take the brunt of the airbag impact, which can cause more damage than the accident itself. In addition the windshield helps to keep the driver and passenger from being ejected from the vehicle during a crash. When it is compromised with a chip or small crack it may shatter upon impact and fail to do its job.
