How Rust Can Damage Your Auto Glass February 12, 2018

How Rust Can Damage Your Auto Glass, Cincinnati, Ohio

Winters in Ohio can be harsh, especially for your car. The combination of snow, ice, salt, and sand that pelt your vehicle is a recipe for rust, which can cause severe body damage over time. Rust can also wreak havoc on your auto glass. If you need windshield repair or replacement, here are some facts you should know.

Why Rust & Auto Glass Don't Mix

Rust makes any structure it corrodes unstable, and when rust appears on the metal surrounding your windshield, it can spread to places that aren’t noticeable at a glance, such as inside your car door. A small amount of rust along the perimeter can be dealt with by a windshield repair company, but too much corrosion requires more specialized service. This is because corrosion can cause the windshield to meld with the vehicle in the pinch weld, making it inoperable. 

How It Can Be Repaired

However, if you need a windshield replacement but your car has rust in that area, professional auto body technicians will correct the problem. It might require sanding off the rust and sealing in the metal before a windshield repair can be made. An auto glass specialist will inspect your windshield and advise you on the best course of action.
