3 Reasons You Need to Fix Car Window Chips ASAP, Cincinnati, Ohio

From leaving the car parked without cover during hailstorms to driving at high speeds over gravel roads, there are several ways you make your car windows and windshield more vulnerable to nicks. The chips can make it hard to see, which increases the likelihood of accidents. Improving driver visibility is one important reason you shouldn’t put off auto glass repairs. Below are more reasons why you should make the service call as soon as possible.

Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate on Fixing Car Window Chips

Chips Can Get Bigger or Form New Cracks 

When there is a chip in auto glass, it compromises the strength of the entire installation. The windshield includes a vinyl layer sandwiched between two glass panels. When the windshield is chipped, moisture and dirt can enter the defect and cause it to spread. Because the chip makes the glass weak, additional cracks can start to form. Additionally, when the outdoor temperature is hotter or colder than the temperature inside the car, the chip could expand. 

Auto Glass Repair Is Cheaper Than Replacement

Cincinnati-Ohio-Lawrenceburg-Indiana-auto-glass-repairDepending on the depth and diameter of the chip, specialists might be able to seal the imperfection without compromising the integrity of the rest of the glass. If you wait to fix the chip, it could spread beyond the point of repair. If it is larger than the size of a quarter, the entire windshield might need to be replaced. The cost of new materials and labor will be more expensive than repairing the damage as soon as it happens.  

Damaged Car Windows Impact Driver & Passenger Safety

Depending on the size and location of the chip, it might create blind spots that make it difficult to see parts of the road while driving. Light could also reflect off the chip, which could create a glare that makes it hard to see clearly. Fixing the chip will improve driver visibility and ensure everyone in the car remains safe on the road.
