How to Keep Rain Out Before You Get Car Window Repairs, Cincinnati, Ohio

If you’re waiting for car window repairs, the last thing you want is to add insult to injury with interior damage from rain and stormy weather. Let GlassPro, Inc. in Cincinnati, OH, tell you how to keep the inside of your vehicle safe and dry until you can get professional help.

Your upcoming car window repairs are likely to have been an unexpected expense, but fortunately, there’s no need to turn protecting your vehicle from rain into an expensive affair. A temporary fix can be straightforward and affordable. The easiest way to cover your broken window is to stretch a trash bag over your car door and slam it closed, catching the bag in the door. This creates a waterproof barrier while you go about your business.

Car Window RepairFor a slightly more permanent fix, you can cut the bag to the right size and attach it to the interior edges of your window using duct tape or a similar strong but non-permanent adhesive. This will let you keep the barrier in place while you drive, though you’ll want to be careful since it may block your view of potential hazards on the road.

If you don’t want to use a trash bag, try contact paper. The material you use to line your kitchen cabinets and drawers is intended to be waterproof and will stick directly to your car, making it a great choice for covering a broken window. You may even have leftover contact paper around the house already, but if not, it’s affordable and easy to find. Just make sure you have a hair dryer on hand to remove it before your car window repair appointment.
