Auto Glass Experts Share the Importance of Headlight Restoration, Lincoln, Nebraska

When you look through your vehicle’s manual at the maintenance schedule, you probably won’t find headlight restoration on there. This doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Headlights naturally scratch and fog up over time. When this happens, it’s vital that you hand your car over to an auto glass team at Capital Auto Glass for restoration in Lincoln, NE.

Understanding Auto Glass & Headlight Restoration

The Problem

The lights in your headlights are bright and powerful, but they are only light bulbs, which leaves them vulnerable. This is why car manufacturers put strong auto glass in front of them as protection. While the glass is durable, a combination of outside factors can scratch it up and make it foggy. These outside factors include winter slush, chemicals from the car wash, UV rays from constant sun exposure, bugs, and dust or tar kicked up from the road. The compromised glass results in a less brilliant headlight.

The Solution

auto glassIt’s difficult to understand just how important good headlights are until you’ve experienced driving in the dark with poorly working ones. Driving with a dirty headlight can be just as bad as trying to drive with a windshield covered in ice or bugs. The light is vital to your own visibility at night, especially in inclement weather. Dirty or damaged headlights can reduce your visibility by up to 70%. It also impacts the ability of other drivers on the road to see you clearly, so you run the risk of someone colliding with you.

Take a look at the auto glass in front of your headlights. If they are cloudy or scratched, it’s time to have them worked on. Contact Capital Auto Glass at (402) 421-6653 to schedule an appointment for headlight restoration. Their team can also help with other types of auto glass repair, such as a broken car window or a chipped windshield. They even offer a warranty on their services, so you know you will get the best possible service.
