Ways You Could Be Damaging Your Windshield
Nobody likes dealing with a broken windshield. When car owners think of windshield damage, picture cracks or chips caused by a collision. However, you may be surprised to learn about other ways your windshield can become damaged. Diamond Auto Glass offers top-quality windshield repair and replacement in Flagstaff, AZ, and we would like to help further by sharing the lesser known ways you could compromise your windshields.
Parking In the Wrong Spot
The location you choose to park in can go a long way toward preventing windshield damage. Parking near an area where there are a lot of activities, such as sports where a ball might crash into your car windows and prompt an untimely windshield replacement.
Parking in an area known to be a spot where birds regularly flock can also be detrimental to your windshield. Apart from their droppings which can be a hassle to remove off your car and windows, the birds themselves can cause considerable damage to your car windows that can warrant a visit to a windshield repair center.
Parking in an uncovered area exposes your car to the elements, making it more vulnerable to damage. Try to park your car under the shade so that your windshield tinting also stands a chance.
Substandard Wiper Blades
Wiper blades age much like every other part of a vehicle. As the wiper wears out and the blade runs thinner, the exposed part can scratch against the surface of your windshield, causing damage that only gets worse over time. We recommend changing out your windshield wipers every few months or so. When compared to the cost of a windshield installation, buying a new set of blades every so often is a minimal expense.
