Cracked or Chipped Windshield? 3 Possible Causes, Honolulu, Hawaii

Cracked and chipped windshields are unsightly, annoying, and can come seemingly out of nowhere, despite their common nature. The auto glass repair team at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop of Honolulu, HI, has seen more chipped windshields than they can count. Although they’re always happy to help out a customer with a cracked or chipped windshield, they’d like to keep them from happening in the first place. By knowing what can cause a cracked or chipped windshield, you’ll have a better chance of protecting against one.

Below are three of the most common causes of cracked and chipped windshields:

  • Pressure Fluctuation: A quick change in air pressure from traveling at a high speed or moving to a higher or lower elevation can create stress cracks in your windshield. Don’t travel too fast on inclines or declines.
  • chipped windshieldGravel: It can be fun to drive off the beaten path—that is, until you get a chipped windshield. When driving on dirt or gravel roads, keep your speed lower to prevent gravel from shooting up and hitting your windshield.
  • Weather: You may not even be driving when Mother Nature decides to toss some hail or blow a bit of debris onto your windshield. If you know bad weather is coming, try to park in a garage or cover your windshield.

If you have a cracked or chipped windshield that needs to be fixed, contact the team at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop of Honolulu, HI. Visit their Facebook or website to learn about all of their professional auto glass services, and give them a call at (808) 845-7484 to schedule an appointment today.
