Why You Should Replace Your Automotive Windshield After a Crack, Evergreen, Montana

It’s not only inconvenient driving with a windshield crack; it’s downright dangerous. This risk is further compounded by the fact that glass damage widens the longer it goes without attention. So if your automotive windshield is cracked, call Able Body Shop in Kalispell, MT, for an estimate. They’ll tell you if the damage is fixable or if you’re better off with a full replacement. The difference in cost may be significant, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Here’s why it’s imperative to get your windshield replaced if a crack is too large:

  • Impaired Sight: Driving around with a cracked windshield increases your chance of getting into a collision, as the bigger the damage is, the more it distorts your view. And as previously stated, that damage will only worsen as time goes on.

  • automotive windshieldsWorse Damage During a Future Collision: If you are involved in a collision after you already have a fairly large windshield crack, your entire windshield can end up popping out. Windshield replacement often only takes less than an hour, and it’s time you’ll be glad you spent waiting.

  • Risk of Roof Collapse: Automotive windshields provide a lot of structural support for vehicles. So when a windshield’s own structural stability becomes compromised, the entire roof of a vehicle can collapse. (Though, thankfully, windshields are also engineered not to shatter into small pieces.)

If your automotive windshield has been cracked, schedule an inspection with Able Body Shop as soon as possible. They’ve been in business since 1976 and have become so reputable that they’ve become the auto body shop of choice for numerous loyal customers. They’re also one of the only “green” collision repair shops in the region, using only Earth-friendly materials and equipment—so if you take the environment seriously, they’re the ones to go to. For questions, call (406) 752-1125. More information is available online.
