Cracked Auto Glass? 5 Hazards You Can Avoid With Windshield Replacement, St. Louis, Missouri

That small crack in your windshield might seem like a minor nuisance, but it can grow over time and pose extreme risks to you and others. Fortunately, windshield replacement in St. Louis, MO, is made easy through the expert auto glass services of Autoglass Xpress.

Founded by a team of specialists certified in auto glass repair, Autoglass Xpress is committed to delivering flawless results with new and repaired windshields that are designed for your safety. With more than 30 years of experience in windshield replacement and repair, this company has helped many motorists prevent these unnecessary hazards:

  • Impaired Visibility: Keeping your eyes on the road and staying aware of hazards is more difficult with a crack or chip in your windshield, especially if it’s on the driver’s side. Whether the crack is large or is reflecting intense sun, your vision can be blocked at any moment.
  • Collapsed Roof: There’s a reason all cars are required to have durable windshields — they help support the structural integrity of the vehicle. If a windshield is damaged, it can pop out or have reduced support during a rollover accident, making a roof collapse more likely.
  • St.-Louis-MO-windshield-replacementBroken Glass: A chip or crack will continue to grow, making it more likely that the entire windshield will shatter. This broken glass not only is a nightmare to clean up, but can also injure you or your passengers.
  • Less Protection From Impact: Windshields are crafted from extremely durable materials that are designed to resist impact. A cracked or chipped windshield is less likely to stop objects from breaking through or keep you from being ejected from your vehicle during an accident.
  • Faulty Airbag Deployment: In an accident, airbags are deployed to soften the impact. When cracks or chips aren’t fixed, the force of the airbag can break the windshield, causing the device to fail to inflate improperly.

It’s hard to put a price on safety, but Autoglass Xpress strives to provide windshield crack repair at affordable rates. Through their mobile windshield repair service, a convenient fix can be brought to you at no extra cost.
