How Winter Weatherproofing Helps Avoid Windshield Repair & Unsafe Driving, Cincinnati, Ohio

Driving in winter can be tricky. Wet, snowy roads and poor visibility make navigating in the cold months more stressful than in clear conditions. The best way to protect your vehicle and yourself this year is to weatherproof your windshield. Below is how you can avoid windshield repair and improve your driving this winter.

A Guide to Windshield Weatherproofing

What Is It?

Weatherproofing improves the stability of your auto glass, and in turn, your vehicle. No matter the weather, strong windshields offer a protective, durable barrier between you and the elements. A weatherproofed windshield is also safer because it’s more structurally sound and can withstand more force than if it weren’t prepared. In fact, 45% of your vehicle’s integrity in a front-end collision depends on the condition of your windshield. Because your auto glass is reinforced after weatherproofing, you can drive more confidently in inclement weather. 

How Is It Done?

Before the cold weather hits, bring your car in for windshield repair and address any weak spots. Once your auto glass is fixed, apply rain repellent to keep visibility clear during rain or snow. Then check and replace wiper blades to ensure they can clear away precipitation without smearing or smudging. Finally, reduce foggy windows by using anti-frost products. These sprays help remove ice and frost from your windows quickly so the glass doesn’t fog while you drive.
