Most people will agree – even the smallest crack in your windshield can be a huge pain and inconvenience. Often times, we end up ignoring chips and cracks – however, if they’re not repaired right away, a windshield crack can spread and cause damage that is more costly to fix.
If you get a crack or chip in your windshield, here are some helpful tips to keep it from spreading before you come in for a professional windshield repair service:
Use Protective Covering
Exposure to sun and wind and changes in temperature can cause a crack in your windshield to expand. Use protective covering over your windshield when parking your car or park under a shaded area for extra protection before your rock chip repair appointment.
Schedule a Windshield Repair Service
The best way to stop a windshield crack from spreading is to take action and have it repaired as soon as possible. At 5-Star Auto Glass, we have the tools and experience to easily and quickly repair a chip or crack to prevent more extensive damage.
The importance of repairing your windshield
Temporary measures are only meant to be a quick fix and an extra precautionary step before you take your car in for professional repair service. A cracked or extensively damaged windshield compromises the structural integrity of your vehicle’s roof, supports passenger airbags, and protects you in the event of an accident.
Our main priority at 5-Star Auto Glass is to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe on the road. Get in touch with us today to schedule a windshield repair service. We offer in-shop and mobile services to get your vehicle back on the road as soon and as safely as possible.
